What is blog commenting and how to perform it to get its benefits?

This post is a simple guide for the bloggers to perform blog commenting in an upright way to get its benefits.

I purposely made this post on “blog commenting” and you might think “Why?” and question me.

Most of us will have a thought in mind that there are many posts in blogosphere that explain the benefits of blog commenting and again you are copying the same topic. My answer to this is “No… Wait”.


Let me explain you guys!

Just have a look at the screenshot attached below!





Yes, I am happy to announce that my 5 month old blog has reached a count of 1000 comments today. I know that this is not a big achievement. But for me this is a matter of unbound gladness as I was unable to attain it for my Blogspot blogs. I really feel happy for it and this has boosted me to write more posts and reply back to the comments I receive.

Once I approved my 1000th comment, I was pleasantly surprise to see that the comment was posted by the blogger who was the motivational factor behind my blogging career “Atish Ranjan“. As I have mentioned in many of my earlier post, he was one of the most influential and inspirational blogger to me.

The spark in me was ignited at that moment to write a post on “blog commenting” including all these details and in a way such that my cheerfulness is expressed.

Not only over here, I have always been expressive by commenting on various blogs and have always given responsive replies to my guest post comments. I have been appreciated for this from my favorite blogger. Just check below a comment from her for my commenting job.




Now it’s time to explain the most important points on blog commenting for my readers.


What is blog commenting?

People who like to get involved with the blog post can share their views in the form of comments and this is known as blog commenting. It is one feature of the blog which is cannot be viewed in static websites. In simpler words, blog commenting is an interaction between the blog owners and the blog post readers wherein they exchange their thoughts and build a good relationship through it.

How to get worthy comments for your blog?

1. Using great headlines with quality content would definitely urge the visitors to post their comments on your blog post.

2. Encouraging them at the end of the post to share their point of views or experience linked with that post would let them to leave their good comment.

3. Mentioning others/other posts would surely occupy your blog with reader’s comment.

5. Listening their opinions carefully and giving good reply without fail would make the commenters feel good about you and they started coming to your blog to leave their comments.

My guest post on Blog commenting


How to make good comments on other blogs?

1. Writing comments just for backlinks and without reading the whole post is really a bad practice and thus your comment has many chances to be disapproved by the blog owner.

2. Try to leave the comments with a minimum of 100 words and the single line comments like “nice post”, “you are rocking”, “thanks for sharing”, “useful information” and so on should be avoided.

3. Leave the comments which are readable by the author of the post and the visitors of the blog. It would be good if it is free from spelling and grammatical mistakes.

4. Respectable comments would increase your reputation and so avoid leaving comments with harsh or insulting words.

5. Make sure that you are leaving a relevant comment for any of the blog post. If possible, try to add some valuable information to that post through your comment.


Why aren’t you getting enough comments?

1. Your blog is having low traffic, so try to increase it.

2. Your blog posts are with low quality, so try to improve it.

3. Your commenting system is complicated, so make it easy for the visitors.

4. Your inactiveness for reader’s comments, so always reply back to the comments.

5. Your blog promotion performance is deprived, try to advertise it.


Where you should not leave your comments?

1. Blogs which takes more than a month to update.

2. Blogs which are not related to your niche.

3. Blogs which are incapable of adding quality blog posts.

4. Blogs which are not interacting/encouraging your comment.

5. Blogs which are following uncommon methods to increase its visibility.


Magical tips for blog commenting

1. While replying to the comments in your blog, try to include the same keyword in a natural way that has been used in the title of the blog post. This would help your blog to perform well in search engines.

2. Don’t hesitate to approve your old blog post comments as the search engines consider the comments as content and would recrawl your blog posts.

3. Try to be the first commentator in few blogs (at least 5 blogs) to ensure that you are an active blogger.



Blog commenting is a powerful tool for the bloggers to perform off-page SEO for their blogs. Leaving quality comments in other blogs would improve the online presence of the blogger and helps us to get good PageRank for their blog. This is one of the effective link building tactic and a genuine way to promote a blog. Leaving high quality comments in good PR blogs would definitely help the blog to escape from Google Penguin Algorithm.

I would like to suggest the bloggers to leave good comments on other blogs to attain its benefits. Read the blog post entirely and then start to write your comments. If you don’t know what to write on that blog post after reading it, then simply leave the space without commenting. Do not give any irrelevant/poor blog comment as it would ruin your reputation.

I would like to conclude that you understand the power of blog commenting through my post now. Expecting your opinions/comments related to this blog commenting post :).

    And then,, My view comes here.

    Blog commenting is an art . It depends on the person’s experince in blogoshphere. If the Blogger is a newbie, then its obvious from him to put one line comments.

    But those who are staying from a long time should avoid these and go with this art. that you have taught in this post 😀

    I never count my comment wordings. Instead I share my views on the post and tell the author whether I liked or not 😉
    The same topic I wrote about 7 months ago When I was a newbie.
    But that time I knew the value of commenting.
    This time you have provided the magical tips along with it. That’s the line which attracted me more on the post.
    Congrats once again

  33. Hi,
    nice article I am always low on users reply/comments on techworm. That could be because its based on niche related to news. Was looking for few ideas to attract visitors to drop reply for my new blog. Thanks to you I think now I can get few to comment 🙂

      Yeah, being a first commenter on some blogs helps me to drive little traffic.

      Show your regular presence here to support me Shathya 🙂

  35. Hi Nirmala Mam,

    Thanks for writing a detailed post on blog commenting…..Many people need to go through it properly…sometimes I really feel sad whenever I receive comments like ‘Nice Post’, Thanks for writing about it’, ‘You are the best’ etc etc…..I don’t even think once before hitting the delete button for those kinda posts….I think one should first read the post properly to know what exactly the author is trying to convey and only then put their own thoughts about that particular topic only……What do u say mam???

    1. Yeah, am telling the same. The readers of the blog post should go through the entire post before commenting on it. If they don’t know what to write, it would be better to leave that place without saying “Nice post”, “thanks for sharing”, ‘Keep writing” etc.

      Thanks for reading my commenting post, I appreciate it 🙂

  36. Hi Nirmala ma’am,

    I agree on the part that we should add value to a blog post by actually interacting with other people, however i have a problem here.

    My blog has a niche that is not covered by any one else, this basically means that i cannot comment anywhere?

    Do you have any better suggestions for me?


  37. Finally your blog post made my day. I really like your post. Actually I was also written a post on blog commenting benefits and later I think that why not to read what other bloggers thinks about the commenting benefits and after reading your post, I learned some extra benefits of commenting.
    I also would like to share that we can also get a great commenting benefit. i.e we can make our online identity, A great blog commenter can make his or her online identity through his or her quality of commenting on other blogs. Harleena singh and Adrienne smith is my favorite blog commenters and I never read any useless comment by these two bloggers. They always leave a great and high quality comments. So this is the benefit which I like most though commenting on other blogs. 😉
    Happy Blogging
    Chetan Gupta 😉

  38. Hi Nirmala,

    I’m so enjoying your blog and most importantly your posts! They are so making my day trust ma.

    Blog Commenting is a very strong tool to build back-links and quality traffics to ones blog.

    I so much enjoyed this post because it’s just so different from every other blogs that I’ve read on blog commenting. Kudos ma’am!

    Here’s my take though: comment from the heart and just like you’re talking to a friend. Be sincere and very honest. Read the post before commenting and follow the rules of such blogs.

    Siraj Wahid, recently did a fantastic post on this same topic but in a rather insightful way. It was cool. You can find it at “revealingthestuffs.com” and Harleena also did one at Adrienne’s blog. They are so cool, you can also check’em out in case you didn’t see them.

    After all said and done, Nirmala trust me I’m a product of blog commenting, it has really helped me a great deal.

    I’d just stop here before I get glueed with my keyboard.
