- 42 Comment
One fast and easy way to get free traffic is through blog commenting. Spending a few minutes a day commenting on high-traffic blogs can drive dozens of visitors to your site every day. Commenting on blogs can be fun, and it’s a great way to drive traffic for your business!
When talking about commenting on blogs, I don’t condone spamming them with one-liners or promotional messages. I am talking about posting quality content and information that will benefit others. This is the correct way to get targeted traffic to your blog.
The most important thing to remember is that people are reading your posts. These days, many blogs also have comment moderation enabled. Which means your comment won’t be approved until the owner approves it. So if your comment is spammy, it won’t appear! You’d definitely want to post good content to make the most of your efforts.
Now, the first step to the blog traffic generation method is to find blogs that receive good traffic in your niche:
1. Search Engines
Ideally you’ll want to comment on blogs that receive a lot of traffic as well as have good search engine rankings. I recommend doing a search like this “your niche + blog” on Google and scout those blogs in the top 20 listings. If they appear suited to your niche market, start making a note of them.
For instance, here are some of the results I turned up when I typed in “weight loss + blog” on Google:
2. Blog Finder Tools
Another great way to find blogs to post on is to use blog finder tools. These tools typically search using keyword values to find related blogs.
Here are a few of these tools:
Let’s say I want to promote my golf product in a subtle way. A search on Technorati for ‘golf’ brought up these results:
While not all of them are entirely relevant, there’s certainly a few blogs there that I can comment on to receive targeted traffic to my golf product.
Another great idea is to contact these blogs to do joint venture affiliate deals or place banner ads on their site.
How To Start Getting Traffic From Blog Commenting!
First, you’ll need to download an RSS reader. These will allow you to add RSS feeds from the blogs on your shortlist so you can receive updates from them.
Now you’ll want to add the RSS feeds from the list of blogs you have compiled. Visit all the blogs and add their RSS feed to your blog reader. You’ll be notified by your RSS reader whenever a new post is uploaded to those blogs.
The reason you’ll want to do this is so that you’ll get first notice of when a new blog post is made, so you can quickly post a comment there. This ensures you’ll be one of the first few to post comments, and those are the ones that usually grab the most eyeballs and get the most traffic.
Now the important thing that I touched on earlier is that you must offer value to your blog comments! You can’t just post ‘Great blog, nice design’ and expect to receive a ton of traffic. So be sure to add something valuable to your comment. Position yourself as an authority in your market by engaging in the conversation of the blog post.
If you’re not sure about how to use an RSS reader to syndicate blog posts, let me walk you through how to do it:
1. Register your name and enter a password of your choice at the Bloglines home page –
2. You’ll then receive an email verification message to confirm your account. Click on the link in that email verification message.
3. Download their Notifier by going to the link as shown below.
Choose the download version that is relevant to your PC (whether it’s Window, Mac etc)
4. Now, start finding blogs and adding their RSS feeds to your reader. Usually, blogs that have an RSS feed will have an Orange icon on their home page. The icon will typically look something like this:
Click on it and you’ll end up on page that looks like this once your reader is installed:
Leave the options as is, hit the ‘Subscribe’ button and you’re ready to go!
