Commenting on blogs to gain links… be sensible!
Lately I’ve been deleting comments left on my blog – and that seems a bit mean, but there’s a reason.
The comments have absolutely no bearing on the content of the blog post.
For instance: This morning there was a comment on a post about developing a Military Niche for your real estate practice. The commenter chimed in to sell his or her services as a property manager for rental property owners who lack experience.
Obviously, the only reason for the comment was to gain a link.The person added nothing to the subject. And the silly thing is, he or she COULD have chosen to make a comment related to the post.
If you want to gain links by commenting, follow this simple formula:
- First read the post.
- Make a comment related to that post.
All bloggers welcome comments that continue the conversation – most of us welcome them even if they’re in (polite) disagreement.
So choose blog posts that spark a response in your mind, then comment away! You’ll gain the links you’re seeking.
