Blog Comments: Source of Targeted Traffic — 7 Comments

  1. I couldn’t agree with this article more! So much so, that I have written a blog several weeks ago about leaving comments. My proof of the pudding is that so many people came to visit my blog from other blogs I commented on.
    I like the way you posted your google analytics! That is awesome. When someone stays on your blog for a time, and comments on several of your posts, Google is your friend.
    This is how one can rise above and get on page 1 of Google. I know there are SEO parts and pings and such, but there is nothing better than an organically grown blog where real people read your post and leave great comments.

  2. I agree that blog comments really targets traffic for websites. As I am a back linker, I have encountered many new strategies to get high page rank links as I’ve read and commented on posts.

  3. The adding value part is often the hardest part for me! There’s always that nice part of me that doesn’t want to step on the writer or blogger…Taking your advice, I really should get over that hurdle and take the opportunity to shine. Thanks!

    • Most bloggers will not see your comments in the negative light that you envision so don’t be afraid of being yourself in your comments. Holing back your brilliance cheats the world of your gifts and does no one any favors.

  4. The only “trick” to this is figuring out where your clients hang out on the internet. What are they reading that you can comment on? This I am still baffled by. My buyers tend to be upper middle class folk, slightly more women than men. That’s a bit broad but accurate. So what are they reading? Really, I have no idea.

    Any suggestions on where to look for these folk?

    • “Upper middle class women” is a demographic, not a niche. My post, has more details on the difference, but in general, demographics like gender and income are only the fine details of who your market is. Much like when you order your drink at Starbucks… you don’t say, give me a shot of vanilla syrup, but add the vanilla to your latte. Upper middle class is the vanilla of your market…. but what is the rest? That’s how you find them online, by figuring out what other traits define them. Are they over 50? Squeezed between paying for college and helping out aging parents? Or maybe they drink a lot of Starbucks (their market is upper middle class, college educated)? Flesh out the rest of what defines who your market it and it will much easier to find them online (or off).
