Millions of blogs today are faced with the same basic problem- How to increase traffic!
One of the most simple yet effective ways of doing so is by commenting! Now I'm not talking about comment spam where you simply paste the URL of your blog and leave. Hit-and-run tactics like that will only ensure that your 'comments' never get approved which means they will never appear on the site in which you posted them. More than that though, both you and your blog will come to be alienated by the blogosphere in general.
Rather, stick to these basics:
>> Your comments should be pertinent to the article.
>> You are entitled to your own opinion, but your comments should not contain any profanity or offend!
>> Try to be unique, but do not be scared of being critical. Often a difference in opinion is seen as a refreshing change and people may be more willing to visit your site because of your honesty and different views.
>> Your comment should not be a lame one liner like 'Great site'. Most moderators reject such comments anyway as they are seen for what they are...Spam!
Now that you have some basic ground rules, where should you be posting your insightful comments?? For starters try these high-traffic blogs:
1. Copy Blogger
2. John Chow
These blogs receive thousands of unique visitors daily and posting quality comments on a regular basis with a link back to your blog will definitely bring you an increase in traffic.
While I haven't been commenting of high-traffic blogs for very long, I have noticed a significant increase in traffic in recent weeks.
You can also visit blogs that fall under the same category as your own. Posting comments on sites similar to your own will bring you traffic from people who are interesting in the same niche!
