Comments are part of every blog. Indeed they form an important part of the content of the blog itself. That is why it is highly important that we pay serious attention to comments and commentators on our blogs.
First, a blog is just dead or non-existent without comments. It means that no one is ready to engage with you even if you are providing high quality content.
Second, comments are social proof. With a decent number of average comments per post, you can show that up as a social proof, which is great.
Third, comments are also indexed by the search engines, just like your contents. So if the comments in your blog are of high quality, bots note that too!
Commenting on other blogs and building up backlinks for your own blog is very effective for SEO purposes. The newest means, to encourage readers to comment on your blog and to benefit from your own comments on others’ blogs, is the commentluv plugin.
What is commentluv?
Commentluv is a wordpress plugin that rewards the commenter – simple. It rewards by giving the commenter a do-follow backlink to their own blog.
