Blog Commenting – Do’s and Dont’s

Blog commenting is the most effective strategy for an immediate raise in the traffic & helps to get free one way links to your website (in case of dofollow). Comments in a blog is an excellent place where discussions over the post can be held and it is one of the best way to make your name recognizable by many other bloggers across the world. Let me share some tips regarding Blog commenting.


  • Post the comments on the appropriate blog that relates to your site.
  • Post the comments in high PR blog sites that helps to increase your traffic.
  • From SEO point of view, it is better to comment on dofollow rather than nofollow for effective backlinks.
  • Make your comments brief and simple as everyone can understand.
  • It is appreciated to limit the length of the words to 300.
  • Comments must have correct spelling and without grammar mistakes.
  • Comment on the current posts.
  • Post only quality blog comments otherwise comments will not be approved.
  • Ask questions only if it is relevant to the blog.
  • If you get reply for your comment, respond to it immediately.
  • If you find a blog post is wrong be bold enough to disagree with it in a respectful manner.


  • Avoid regular Comments like “Thanks for sharing”, “Great job” etc. Post the valid comment. Your comments should be useful for the author as well as for other readers.
  • Don’t copy the comments. Post your own thoughts.
  • Don’t just leave comments on blogs for the sake of link-building; try to build relationship with blogger and make comments out of interest rather than for compulsion of doing it.
  • Don’t comment on unnecessary blogs. Find the blog that matches your site and comment on it.
  • Don’t spam the content. Do it in a professional manner. It must add value to the post and to the readers.
  • Don’t comment on the post unless you found is interesting enough to share some thoughts.
  • Don’t try to stuff keyword rich anchor text in the “Name” field.
  • Don’t post the same comment across multiple blogs.
  • Avoid disrespectful tone such as “That’s stupid” ,” Not nice”, “really bad” etc.
  • Don’t repeat the points in your comment.
  • Avoid responding to provokers. In case, you must be polite and humble in your responses.
  • Don’t self-promote your site in order to increase traffic.

    Commenting on other blogs is a great way to market your own sites and, over time, can bring a good amount of targeted traffic back your way. Additionally, you have opportunities on a daily basis to reach out and meet some pretty interesting people. Many times, someone will read a comment that you’ve made and, that alone, will be the kindling that begins a wonderful and rewarding collaboration between like-minded Entrepreneurs.Thanks for this informative post.

    Comments on blogs is a great way to generate traffic, also to generate back links. It also gives you the opportunity to learn more and know more in your services and related service providers.

    Very much agree. Once in a while I also post to blogs not related to mine not just to get a quality backlink but because I find it really interesting, like this one. I retweet it in fact, to share with others. I comment a lot and realize there’s something I shouldn’t really be doing. I’m also browsing on some of your blog, I’d really love to know how to spot a do-follow blog, I hope you’ll have time to share it as well. Thanks.

    Posting comments on blogs of others will give you the opportunity to generate back-links but the condition is to post a genuine comment on the blog. Comments with facts and genuine information are appreciated by webmasters.
