Sometime in November I submitted a guest post to Problogger. I’m always respectful of the fact that Darren Rowse is probably one of the busiest bloggers on the web so I have no bitterness about the fact that my guest post was never published. If anything, it was the inspiration for this post to some degree.

Guest posting is something many bloggers can’t do because of how long they take. However, leaving a comment on a blog can bring in the same results as writing a guest post, and Srinivas Rao will talk about exactly how that’s possible and how you can benefit.

While a guest post on Problogger is definitely something that will get you a big boost, I would venture to say it’s not the answer to all you problems.

A few days ago I spoke to Colin Wright at Exile Lifestyle and in our discussion about blog comments he said something that really struck me:

Your comments on a blog can be just as valuable as a guest post on that blog.

The great thing about comments is that you don’t always need prior approval for them. You can write as much or as little as you want. Let’s look at how you can take advantage of that.

3 Ways to Make Your Comments as Valuable as a Guest Post

Doesn’t it sound almost unreal to just post a comment and have it bring in similar effects to that of a guest post? It’s possible, and Marko Saric has even compiled a pretty detailed report about how one comment brought him many unique visitors to his own blog.

The 3 methods I used to build some pretty decent traffic to my own blog by just leaving a comment are simple ideas, but will take a little extra effort on your part. But, the rewards you can get in return are huge.

1. Build on the Post

My first exposure to the idea that comments could be as valuable as a guest post was on a blog that doesn’t currently accept guest posts.

Everett Bogue wrote a superb summary of his first 6 months as a blogger. My comment on this post was long enough to be a guest post. What was interesting to note is that Disqus had a “like” button that other readers could click and my comment was moved to the top of the list.

Two things happened after that. I was on Everett’s radar, and since my comment was so long, I’m guessing a fair amount of people learned who I was. The key to making this work however is authenticity. I genuinely had plenty to say about his post. If you try to force this it won’t work.

2. Present an Opposing View Point

Opposing viewpoints are also an excellent way to make you comment as valuable as a guest post. While opposing viewpoints might seem a bit like you are attacking a blogger, done properly they can generate a very interesting discussion and put you on the radar of all of the readers of that particular blog.

3. Generate A Conversation Among the Commenters

Another approach you could take is to try to generate a conversation between all the people who have commented. I often wonder how many people leave a comment on a blog and never go back to look at the response from that blogger, or the other readers.

You really should look at the responses because there are several things you can gain from looking at them:

  • An opportunity to build a relationship with the owner of the blog
  • An opportunity to build a relationship with the other readers
  • Ideas/inspiration for future blog posts
  • Potential collaboration opportunities

Each of the three methods of commenting could be as valuable as writing a guest post for a particular blog. So, next time you are about to submit your one paragraph in response to a post on a well known blog, consider the notion of writing something as lengthy as a guest post as your response and put it in the comments. You might surprise yourself with the results.

I was going to save this for later but now is the perfect time.

Blog commenting can be one of your best methods to gain visitors to your blog especially when the blog uses two things:

A. CommentLuv
B. Top Commentors

A perfect example of commentluv is right here on Blogussion. After your comment has been submitted, your most recent blog post will be shown for others. Now, if you can coordinate it, you can leave a link that’s highly relevant to the top.

For example (and coincidence) the link that is left for my comment relates to guest blogging – this post is about commenting: the two are highly relevant to another.

This gives readers extra incentive to click through and visit the link in comparison to others’ which have recent blog posts irrelevant to the niche.

So now that you’ve lulled people with an enticing blog post using CommentLuv, it’s time to step up the game with Top Commentors.

Located in sidebars and footers, top commentors plugin will place your link on every page it appears on. In the case of the sidebar or footer, this means your link will be on every page. If a blog has thousands of pages indexed, you’ll now have thousands of inlinks once the blog is spidered.

This doesn’t necessarily last forever because you may dip out which is why you’ll want to subscribe to the feeds so every day you can add a new, helpful comment and bump your spot in the top commentors.

Ready for a ninja trick?

Use Yahoo Site Explorer and type in names of big name blogs and look through their inlinks. If you’re noticing many links coming from a single source, go take a look and you may find a top commentors plugin.

This tactic helped gain me over 6,200 inlinks under 30 days.

But remember, you want to make every comment useful and informative. Don’t use this just to spam other blogs – don’t be a d-bag ha.

When you leave helpful comments and build your top commentors placement, you’ll see very nice traffic frequently coming to your blog.

Hope this helps :)

Great job with putting the article’s advice into practice here Murlu! Not that you wouldn’t do that anyway because you ALWAYS leave useful comments, and this one is Gold.

I remember when you announced on Twitter about your in-links… and now I know how you did it! Lol

I think the Top Commentators links are good for PR, but I’m a little scared to use it as a back-linking method though because like you mentioned, if you drop off, then that’s how many links you’ll lose. I think I’d get a little depressed if my site dropped in PageRank if I in-fact got a high one due to Top Commentators. I also noticed that a lot of blogs don’t keep Top Commentators up forever, unfortunately.

But that is some great advice, especially if your blog is new and you’re looking to get it indexed quickly!

@ Jonathan

Any link which depends on other act is never for forever. Blog comments are really sensitive because you never know any time the blog owner can change its plugin for comments and your all links gone.

But yes you can not denied the instant benefit you get from your good comments and that is the main thing.

I’d argue that worrying about your comments disappearing isn’t worth it. Even if they do, they make an impact when you post them for the people that do get to read them.

I definitely agree with the concept of using things like CommentLuv. Personally, I use IntenseDebate, but that’s mostly because Disqus doesn’t work with my theme for some reason. I wonder how CommentLuv stacks up…

I think people are scared to comment. I really do. I’ve had a lot of people tell me on Twitter or through other social media that because I teach English, they’re scared to comment on my site because they fear their grammar is terrible.

It’s a stigma that comes from the persona I blog under, but I think it can be applied other places, too. Sometimes people are afraid to start commenting on posts because they never have before. Or they’re afraid they’ll be one of the masses who comment and no one will care what they have to say, whether it’s the blog owner or other commentors.

I see my blog’s comments as a place where community is built and discussion is had, more than anything else. One of the steps I try to take to keep people from being scared is that I reply to nearly every comment I get with a personalized response. Sometimes this takes a lot of time, other times it doesn’t. But the end result is that people can see that I care about what they have to say, and that opens up a dialogue where other people see “Oh, those two are having an interesting discussion; let me click this link and see what Person A has to say about other things.”

The first step to making those good comments is the same as anything else: take that plunge and just do it. You /can’t/ get the exposure and discussion from a comment that never gets made. But the trick is to only comment when there is something to say. I mean, I read Blogussion daily, but I might have 3 comments on various posts. The same for Problogger and other sites. Unless something is legitimately connected (and interesting), I tend to keep it to myself. The only thing worse than a “me, too!” blogger is a “me, too!” commentor.

Your approach is excellent because I think there is this fear of commenting because people often seem a little hesitant to give their opinions or share their knowledge.

It’s a bit like speaking out but you’re also afraid what you’re about to say is going to be broken down by someone else. It will happen time to time but you have to just do it.

Like you said, not every post you’re going to comment on. You may completely enjoy the article but it hasn’t stimulated any kind of feedback from you. I think this is why many bloggers will leave open ended questions or a direct question in the end.

@Professor Beej: I think your point is spot on. When I first started I used to comment on every post I would read. But then I realized, if I don’t really have anything of value to say, then i’m not really helping the discussion and it’s most just about trying to get traffic to my blog.

I’m new to blogging and the blogs I visit are often not in my niche as I come to sites like this to learn more about successful blogging. However, I’ve found really nice ppl in the blogosphere who answer my questions when I ask them in the comments section.
Just found this blog and joined up for the course; so thanks to all you experienced bloggers who share your knowledge with us newbies.
BTW if I go on a site and the topic is something I feel is relevant to my learning more about successful blogging, I read every comment as I have found there are lots of little gems in the comments section as well as the blog post. Maybe cos I have more time than the established bloggers, but hopefully when I am successful I will be like Darren Rowse and still read every comment (especially when it is on my blog)
Thanks again.

Cheers Srinivas!! If all Bloggers would do that in excellence there wouldn’t be a problem at all comment posting, unfortunately most people are selfish and are really only concerned about more traffic and not about being an asset. We can have both if we will just be creative and add value everywhere we go.

Commenting on blogs rocks, but many new bloggers overlook participating in this fun, yet productive, activity. Because it truly is fun to read great blogs and engage in discussion, newer bloggers often refuse to believe there could be any advantages to their blogs from engaging in this activity. Truthfully, it feels like slacking off rather than work.

My own blog was so lonely there were tumbleweeds rolling across the home page, but since I’ve become a regular commenter on blogs I enjoy, a thriving community has built up.

@Dev: It’s kind of amazing that all it takes is 30-60 mins a day, yet the payoff from it is so valuable. I think if you just set aside that one hour or so and do nothing but comments, turn off email, tweetdeck, etc, then you can do this effectively and efficiently.

I can agree with your statement.

I think this is more difficult to do because of comment placement, page traffic, and comment participation, but it definitely is one tool in the set of ways to bring targeted traffic to your site.

I think comments need to become personal to both the blogger, other readers, and the content to be effective. Otherwise it might as well be spam.

I would be interested to see how well commenting would be if blogs replaced the sidebar with the main comment section. Then shifted the sidebar down into the footer.

In some way, it would be like taking notes in the margins of a book.

Jason @ Affiliate Marketing Forum May 27, 2010 at 10:01 pm

comments can be as valuable as guest posts! just make sure that comments allow “dofollow” links. the only advantage that I can see for guest blog postings is that you have the spotlight, and as for comments, there are some that outshines the content itself by giving much detail than the given content :)

so I do think that the given pointers above does help in getting attention, not just the blog owner’s attention but also other readers as well. particularly with the “interact or rather converse” with other readers. it’s the true essence of the community, to discuss and to share :) great thoughts Srinivas! 5-star!

Yes exactly, I think it depends on whether you are commenting to get “human” traffic (i.e. “this guy sounds like he’s interesting, let’s see what he/she says on their own blog”) or whether you are commenting just to get a backlink for spiders to read…

…question is, what is my comment post designed to do…? ;-)

D. Lambert May 26, 2010 at 9:56 am

Thanks for the post. I’ve seen comments drive traffic to my site on numerous occasions, and in some cases, authors have added me to their blogrolls or links as a result.

In addition to the well-placed individual comments, I’ve also seen that in some cases, serial commenting can help create a credible profile on a community-oriented site. Within the scope of that community, active participation in the conversations on that site functions as an informal “page-rank” in the sense that you’re recognized as a valuable contributor.

Great comments here, by the way…

Man, I knew there were going to be some long comments on this post! Good to see you around, Srini! Whenever I leave a comment, I always come back to that comment 2 or 3 times to see if anyone replied. I love reading people’s replies. In a way, it’s a lot like getting a comment on a guest post.

I agree that great comments have a similar effect as a guest post. But don’t you think spending the time to write very insightful comments could be better used writing insightful guest posts?

Wow, talk about pressure! Leaving a comment on a post about commenting is a bit unnerving. But I’ll give it a shot. When I first started blogging back in 2007, commenting was a big part of not only getting visitors to my site, but also meeting bloggers. Some of the most important friendships I’ve formed have come through comments either left on my site or comments I’ve left on other sites. So long as the comments really advance the discussion and don’t have even a hint of spam, they can be golden. And Srinivas, I’ve been turned down for a guest post at Problogger, too! It happens to the best of us.

My biggest suggestion is a simple one – don’t just say something like “Nice post”, and leave. By doing that, you show that you are either a) lazy, or b) not knowledgeable. By giving thorough responses, you will build interest of other readers and get that reader to come to your blog.

I must say that three points which you mentioned is the back bone of networking.

In bloggers world there are three different category.

a) Highly Famous (Darren, Danniel) or with alexa perspective below 10k

b) Middle level (Blogussion and similar blogger platform) or with alexa within 100k but above 10K

c) People who are above 100k alexa.

But In these three category, No C are the main and key bloggers. These bloggers make your blogs heat or miss.

I think it highlights that fact that there are many different approaches to achieving your goals in relation to attracting comments. A few of those above make sense and I will give them a trial.

It is also true that there is a reluctance to comment, and I have been guilty of it… sometimes thinking I liked that post…. but what value do I have to add via a comment about it?

Great advice! I also got rejected at Problogger, but the fortunately, I decided to contact two A-List bloggers at that time: Darren Rowse (Problogger.net) and Yaro Starak (Entrepreneurs-Journey.com) and while Darren rejected my request due to having too many guest posts at once, I did get approved at Yaro’s blog.

I completely agree with your advice here though. For those who are posting to blogs that don’t use Disqus, consider finding high trafficked blogs and being one of the first to comment. I managed to get one of the top comment spots on a ZenHabits.net article when I was in the personal development niche and it gave me a very good amount of traffic.

Great advice! But don’t give up on contacting A-listers, just keep fine-tuning your craft (writing) and contact them again one day and eventually they’ll bite :-)

I must say that a couple of time when I began to comment on blogs I was in the situation when I wanted my comment to be aproved. I was affraid to argue the writers point of view, as I thought he wouldn’t like if I don’t agree with him. The writer probably wants to feel an expert in his field and I can hurt his image infront of his readers.

At this moment I don’t have that feeling. And as you said controversery comments bring a bit of interest in the conversation.

Many new bloggers take the misguided approach of trying to be the first or second comment on every post of a larger blog. They do this because those positions in the comment stream get the most click-throughs, all other things being equal.

The problem is, in the rush for “first,” the resulting comments are often incoherent and banal. Sometimes it’s quite clear the commenter didn’t read the post, or missed the entire point in the hurry for top position.

I think that when you meaningfully participate in the community aspect of a blog, you’re creating meaningful relationships with people who can send you significant traffic—bloggers and other active social media users.

Getting links, re-tweets, social media votes and bookmarks… this is the way that content spreads. This is the way you get real traffic that actually matters.

This doesn’t entail kissing up to the blog owner (most of us hate strategic-sounding praise). What it means is creating a network that provides the payoff for all the effort you’ve put into your content.

It takes time, but at least it actually works.

you’ve got some great ideas there, tried lots of things over the years and just decided to blog for myself and if it flowers into what you are saying I would be very happy indeed!

This post is right on the money. It’s always good to commenting on the blogs that you actually like. Because you can add on what the guest poster has said and you get to share some of your knowledge as well. Good stuff!

“Oppos­ing view­points are also an excel­lent way to make you com­ment as valu­able as a guest post. While oppos­ing view­points might seem a bit like you are attack­ing a blog­ger, done prop­erly they can gen­er­ate a very inter­est­ing dis­cus­sion and put you on the radar of all of the read­ers of that par­tic­u­lar blog.”

i definitely agree. With this method you can make the post even more intresting. However we should be careful cause sometimes it could lead to flames!

Oakley Sunglasses start with sculptural physics and the unique three-point fit. Peer through Oakley sunglasses and see the vast array of performance treatments and lens tints that take the elements out of play. The cheap Oakley Sunglasses will make you cooler in the summer days

I often find the best approach is to read a genuinely insightful article (about blog commenting for instance), and then post a random comment about sunglasses!

Come on “our-sunglasses.com”, play the game!
