Last night, when i sat down and checked my email, i noticed that someone sent me an email asked me how can i increase my blog comments significantly. He's one of my loyal readers so he knows exactly what happen on my blog since the start of this blog when i get 0 comments each post, until i get about 5-10 comments each post. These 2 simple things which i will explain here don't include something's like: "Make a good post" or "Held a comment contest". I believe that good posts do attract people to comment, so do the comment contests. But i didn't do one of them or even both of them. What i did was...
:: Active on commenting other blog similar to my topic
If you are a blogger, besides making a post to your blog, another must-to-do task for you is exploring other blog which are similar to your topic. Once you found those blog, be active to comment on those blog. What i mean is buzzing the owners of those blog about your existence in this world of blogging by active commenting on those blog. Keep leaving comment(s) everyday on his/her posts. Usually, the blog owner will notice you as the one who keep reading his/her blog, and probably they will come to your blog, and leave comment(s) on your blog post.
If they don't leave comment(s) on your blog, that's fine. It could be their readers who will leave comment on your blog. But still you will see an improvement on the number of your blog comments. I add one thing, to make sure that your task you have done give good input to your blog, i recommend you to only leave comment(s) on dofollow blog (read how to find dofollow blog).
:: Install Dofollow Top Commentators Widget
This is very important! If your blog hasn't had a good number of readerships, to attract more people leaving comment on your blog is by installing dofollow Top Commentators Widget. The reason why Dofollow Top Commentators can attract more people to leave comment(s) on your blog is all about 'Link Juice'. Link Juice mean a good amount of quality backlink point to their blog, so they can improve their Page Rank. Go get dofollow top commentators widget, and install it on your blog.
Those two steps above is making me have a good number of comments each post. How about your opinion? Do you hav another way to increase blog comments?
