Lately, there has been a lot of buzz around blog commenting. I see a lot of people talking about whether or not commenting on blogs is a good practice for the search engine optimization of a Web site. Well, I am here to tell you that yes, blog commenting is indeed a good practice for the search engine optimization of your Web site. That being said, let’s have a further look at blog commenting and search engine optimization.
First of all, you may be a bit confused by what exactly blog commenting is. In short, blog commenting refers to adding comments onto a blog post that is relevant to the products or services that you offer. In other words, you would add comments onto the posts of someone else’s blog. Say, for example, you had a blog in the crafting niche; you would comment on the post of another blog in the crafting niche. You would write a thoughtful or informative comment on the blog post and include a link back to your Web site along with the comment. It’s really quite simple.
Why would you do this? Well, adding comments onto blog posts allows you to get involved in the conversations that others are having about a topic that is related to your niche. When you get involved in these conversations, or comment on these blog posts, you can bring attention to your own blog. When you bring attention to your own blog, you drive more traffic to it; which, as we all know, is one of the fundamental aspects of Internet marketing – traffic.
So, why is commenting on a blog post good for the search engine optimization of your Web site? Well, to put it plainly, when you add a comment on a blog post and include a link to your Web site, you have created a backlink. If you don’t already know, backlinks help to get your Web site noticed by the search engines. The more backlinks there are to your Web site, the more valuable the search engines are going to see your Web site, which in turn, will increase your ranking on the search engines, and thus, increase your success.
Blog commenting is an interesting and an easy way to enhance your search engine optimization and build your Web site. By engaging in such an easy task as simply making a comment on a blog, you can create a dramatic impact on your business.
