Visitors: 176

One of the crucial things all bloggers should do on a regular basis is to make comments on other peoples blogs. This serves the following purposes:

1. Gets those much needed backlinks or trackbacks to your blog which increases your Page Rank in search engines;

2. Promotes your blog to the owner of the blog you are commenting on and other commenter's (commentators?) which drives traffic to your site;

amongst a few others. . .

What you need to do is to search out blogs that are related to your blog subject and make meaningful comments. Do not just post your link to your site as most bloggers moderate their comments before posting them, and even if they don't its just not nice to do this & you eventually get known as a SPAM commenter. Try to participate in the discussion going on and add value. Its just like the physical world - if you be nice to others, they are more likely to be nice back to you. Some bloggers may even quote you in their upcoming post if you leave a good comment, which can further help to promote your blog.

Its important to find blogs that allow you to comment and especially ones that allow you to leave the URL of your site. If they don't either find one that does, or you might like to email the owner of the blog and ask why & point them to this post!

Its also important for you as a blogger to allow others to leave comments as it shows that your blog is popular, so make sure you always turn allow comments on. I would recommend moderating these comments as you sure don't want comment SPAM on your site or people saying nasty or completely unrelated things.

All in all, blog commenting is important, so make sure you set aside some time at least each week, ideally each day, to make comments on other peoples related blogs.
