If you are a blogger, you will know how important commenting on other blogs is and catching clicks on CommentLuv links you leave around the blogosphere. I’d definitely know that commenting on comment Luv enabled blogs does bring new traffic and absolutely does count as a back link for SEO.
Blog commenting for SEO works
Blog commenting for SEO definitely works, but it works on so many different platforms. For example commenting on blogs can count as a back link which will help you for your search engine optimization and rank your blog better in the search engines. It will also help you to attract targeted visitors and build a community on
your website. Having the ability to leave a comment Luv links below your comment on other blogs also attracts direct traffic. Either way, blog commenting is a win-win situation for you.
If you need proof that Commentluv links count as backlinks, simply visit your Google Webmaster tools section for your website and investigate the back links. If you follow the trail back to the website where the back links originate from, you will find that some of these links will be from CommentLuv links. That is simple proof.
Catching clicks on commentLuv links that you leave under your comments is a new skill that we need to develop. Here are some of my tips that I use to get clicks.
#1. Choose your posts to comment on
People presume that commenting or getting backlinks from unrelated sites works…You might get lucky in catching clicks on Commentluv links but do you want to rely on luck or facts? If you target your customer, drop in line in, you have a better chance of catching the fish.. What’s the point of fishing in a place where you are not going to get any bites.
Where to leave your Commentluv links
- Work out what websites are best related to your niche.
- Find Dofollow Commentluv blogs to comment on.
- Find busy blogs with lots of traffic to comment on. Dofollow or Nofollow.
Ok so you have a list of Dofollow blogs for SEO and a list of Nofollow for possible SEO and traffic. I always like to mix it up to make it look like natural link building. They are related to your website topic. That’s a great start to a commenting campaign that can really improve your SEO and traffic to your blog.
#2. Leave the right links
It is great when you get to choose from of list of your latest 10 posts so this will help you leave a targeted link under your comment. I personally do not like being restricted to only leaving one comment Luv link, well not having a choice, because this means you are leaving and untargeted link on a post that you want to comment on. Therefore you must choose your posts wisely when a blog does not offer the 10 latest articles to choose from.
If you do have Commentluv Premium and the blog offers a choice of your last ten posts, you are in a perfect position to add a targeted link to your comment. Why? Well Commentluv premium offers premium users the option of 15 recent posts and not 10. This means you can choose from 10 recent posts and 5 favorites that you choose. This is an amazing option as I have chosen my best sales pages from my blog as the 5 favorite posts.. Is this increasing sales? Hell yeah!!
#3. Test your blog titles
Some titles of blog posts, just simply smack you in the face. Some titles just tempt you to click on them, they taunt and tease and we give in. Think about what makes you click on someone else’s Commetnluv link? I often think about this, and obviously it is a lot to do with the title of the blog post, as this is the only thing that I see at the time. The other thing that might make me click on their Commentluv links is the fact that their actual comment that they have written, is related to the link that they have posted. Also the comment might leave me wondering something, or wanting more information and the link seems to provide the answer.
Here is an example of how I answered our comment. The person mentioned that blogging was hard work etc etc and then I replied with something that will further prove that blogging is hard work. I know this link will get clicked on..
#4. Analyze everything about your Commentluv Links
Ok the first thing that I recommend for tracking your comments and clicks on Commentluv links is to buy Commentluv Premium. It is an absolute bargain and it seriously lets you get rid of seven other plugins when you install it. This is not only great for your website loading times and it is a great tool to build your community.
See the screenshot below. Commentluv Premium shows me the exact posts, exact titles, and exact websites that are catching clicks on Commentluv Links. How cool is this? This is interesting as I do not comment too much for this blog. I basically comment on blogs that I guest post on.
One really interesting point is that I noticed that people were clicking on my Commentluv links on my own blog. This means that it is better for me to reply to comments on my website and not from the website dashboard, therefore adding my own Commentluv links to my replies.
You can also look in Google Analytics and go to traffic sources, to the referring sites section and see where your traffic is coming from.. This of course does not show details like the Commentluv Premium does but it will give you an idea if your commenting efforts are working or not.
#5. Do more of what works
The only way to move forward with anything is to find out what works and keep doing this. Do not blindly go into the world commenting and expecting people to rush to your website. Research what works for your niche and learn by this!!
I am learning something new everyday and have those AH HA moments that get me excited about what I am doing.. Find that understanding and you will find success. This includes catching clicks on Commentluv links as you could be reeling in your targeted customers, hook line and sinker.
