Blog comments to bring you Internet Marketing traffic

I mentioned my topic to a close buddy.

He said, you are mad no one wants to read such a post.

Why should anyone care about blog comments? They are just 1-2 sentences of nonsense.

Really, I asked? What if blog comments could bring you 300% more traffic? Would that be interesting?
Unlikely! I delete away all the blog comments I get. Those guys are just fishing for a link back to their blog. I’ve already built up my Google rankings. No sense to have outgoing links.

Ah, but what if the comment was useful?

Useful?

Yes, if the person reading your post were to read the comment and get a lot of value from it. Would you leave it on?

What do you mean?

I showed him a couple.

Hmm, interesting. I guess I’d leave it on.

BUT what if I included my blog address in it. Would you still leave it on.

Why not?

What’re the benefits of blog comments:

  • Enhanced credibility: If you come across as knowledgeable about the blogger’s topic, you’ll enhance your standing in the community. If you ask intelligent questions, you will also enhance your standing. If you are sharp, you will be able to differentiate between value-adding and value-destroying comments.
  • Reciprocal traffic: If you sound like an interesting person and come across as an authority in your subject area, expect the visitor to hop onto your site for a quick look. Be aware that having consistently good content is important as you never know when guests will come a-knocking. Updating regularly (at least once a week, more if you can) is important too.
  • Bookmarking/Backlinking/Traffic referral: If your blog is a good resource, expect others to bookmark your site, subscribe to your RSS feed, include you in their blogroll, tell their friends about you, do trackbacks. This is all good quality ‘sticky’ (loyal) traffic. I would rather have 300 loyal readers every day, rather than 1,000 who just happened to surf by,

So there you have it, to have a meaningful comment, just leave quality comments.

Simple, right?

For those of you who might like a little more, I’ll be leaving comments to this post to illustrate what I mean.

    Hi! I’m beginning to realize the power of blog comments to bring traffic to one’s site (that’s why I’m here in the first place..thanks for dropping by my site by the way). I just started with this whole internet marketing thing about 3 months ago, during my university holidays…and man this stuff is getting so addictive that I find learning the nuts and bolts of internet marketing more interesting than my studies (but I must still get that degree so I have to control myself).

    Anyway I am pretty sure I have seen you in person somewhere before…just can’t recall where…maybe in Stuart Tan’s internet marketing seminar preview I attended the other day???

    agree with you. 6 moth ago when i started blogging, there are few visitor but when i start visit other blog ad comment, my visitor suddenly increase. I don’t think deleted the visitor comment is a good ways because it’s will make your blog boring.

    Dear Andrew,
    I am a newbie in terms of Internet Marketing but I have been investing weekends on reading up of the workings of the various aspects of Internet Marketing. It seems to me that you are doing really well in the publishing aspect because your google ranking is so high up now.
    My mother tells me I am crazy to spend so much time during the weekends on this Internet Marketing because she did not see the potential. Not for me. I believe in the potential of the Internet, enabling the ordinary person to market his or her good products at an affordable price.
    This is made possible by Bill Gate’s vision of having everyone to own a computer. All these reasons, further strengthen my believe in the potential of the internet.

    I agree that useful comments are great for blogs all the way around. I own 3 blogs and so far, no one has left any interesting comments but instead were obviously just blatantly promoting a link back to their own site. These comments are never approved.

    Now, I don’t mind you promoting your own site on my blogs at all. Just be creative and on topic while leaving something that at least sounds like you didn’t just post a comment for a free link back to your site!

    Nice post…I can tell from my own experiences it takes a lot of persistent and content that can help people. It is so many things to remember put the main thing is Content is King and always will be, so make sure your writing or getting writing done for you that is top notch.
