How to get more comments on your blog

  • Sumo

Do you get enough DECENT and RELEVANT comments on your blog?

We all want comments, right? Good ones, that is. Unfortunately most blogs, especially new blogs, receive very few real comments from real people (everyone gets spam comments though).

Well, firstly, if your blog has no traffic, you will not receive any comments.

If no one is reading your blog then no one will leave comments either. Simply posting great
articles to your blog is not enough – you have to market your blog to bring people to it.

But what if you do have some traffic… and you’re still not getting comments?

Generate more comments to your blog:

– Write articles that reference or focus on other bloggers. You will get their attention that way and there’s a good chance they will come to your blog and leave a comment as a result

– Ask your readers a question at the end of your article

– Write about topics that stimulate conversation, such as current events

– Be controversial with your writing. Have a strong opinion and others with strong opinions
will reply to argue or agree with you

–    Join in in the conversations once you’ve got a couple comments

–    Look at the posts that generate comments and compare those without and do more of the kind that attract comments

–    Ask you subscribers what kinds of posts they’d like to see more of?

And on that note, what would you prefer to have more of?

Just leave a comment to tell me! By the way, I have a new book coming your way shortly – Power Up Your Squeeze Page – which will cover just about every aspect of using squeeze pages you can think of, from concept to creation to traffic generation. I wrote it as an answer to all the kinds of questions I had when I first started out online. More on that soon.
