When you decide to comment on a certain site, your Primary Purpose is to end up getting some Targeted Traffic Yourself but more importantly to build high quality back links. But, let me guess...you've been commenting for months with absolutely No Results, right? Well there's a little more to just commenting, because commenting must also be used as a means of getting recognized as a Professional. I guess the real "trick" is simply to actually Read the work you're commenting on. You have to pay attention to three key points when commenting.
First you Must target sites and posts relevant to your keywords and niche - This is very important because any Professional Webmaster will simply delete your comment when the content has no relevance and will interfere with the site's popularity. You are joining a conversation, and trying to sell (in any way) dieting products on an Internet Marketing site and/or Blog will completely defeat your entire effort.
Allow me to place exclamation on the fact that a comment is not a sales page or opportunity to test a new sales pitch Click to tweet
Use "Drop My Link" (just search your browser) and follow the link which may direct as - Find SEO Footprints To Create Backlinks On - Then simply sign up as this is a free tool, and a great way to not only engage in comments but also build high quality back links. Now you may notice that this site "https" protocol is not active, but please don't let this deter you. This is purely a research tool, from where to access relevant sites. And this is how to use it;
Once inside - You will see a window requesting your keyword or niche. If you're not sure what that is then just think of the one, or maybe two words that would best describe your blog target audience. What must the people be interested in, when visiting your blog? Must they want to "Create Interior Design" or "Start Gardening" or "Make Money" and even "Making Videos", the options are endless, just go with what your blog is about. There will also be an option (drop down window) under Category. Your options are; Blog Platforms, Comment Back-Links, Forum Back-Links, Guest Posts, Link Roundups, Resource Pages and Sponsor/Donation Links. Let's just go with the Comment Back-Links for the purpose of this demonstration.
And lastly, you need to choose the footprint you want to use. Your options are; Comment Luv Premium - Which is one of my favorites because in many instances you will be given the option to redirect back to a chosen post on your blog, from inside the Comment Luv commenting box. There's also Do-Follow Comments, Intense Debate, Keyword Luv and Livefyre. I suggest you try the Comment Luv Premium option, (no don't let the word premium scare you off) and just see how it works for you. But experiment with the tool, by all means. In fact I encourage that.
The Name section on the Comment Window - Never enter a URL in the name section, always enter your name because there are way too many spam robots out there and a URL is not a name. You want to Brand Your Name, Not your site and/or Affiliate Offer. You Must build credibility with an audience, if they're going to buy from you or even visit your site then desperate attempts at a sale will leave you sadly disappointed. You can enter the name (Or H1 Heading) of your site as the name, but I would advise against that. As a successful affiliate marketer you're going to have several blogs which is why it is more important to brand your name.
Always keep your name authentic and original, you will gain much better recognition. Some high authority sites also use comment sites like Disquss and Avatar, where you have to create a profile in order to be able to comment. If you run into those, then create your profile because it is extremely important to building credibility. The better your profile the bigger your traffic boost will be, and a profile photo should be a full frontal face and shoulder. Like a passport picture, and not a favorite pet, nature scene or even a favorite car.
The Email section on the Comment Window - Preferably your own email, and not that of any other entity.
The Website section on the Comment Window - This is where you enter the Primary Domain, and not another page or post on your blog. Your primary domain ends with dot com or dot org (http : // yourdomain (dot) com) Everything after that is a redirect to an alternative page or post. It is a good tactic to direct visitors to your primary domain (Home Page) from where your content must inspire them to stay on your blog.
The Comment section on the Comment Window - First and most importantly You - Never Share Any Link In A Comment - Your link must only be in your "Website" section of the comment window. The only instance when a link get shared in a comment section, is when the site owner and/or webmaster answers a question for instance and offer the visitor a tool and/or solution. Remember, the comment section is not a sales page and must never contain any form of prompt in a desperate attempt to make a sale.
You must actually read the post you wish to comment on and then comment something relevant and a valuable addition to the discussion at hand. Rather focus on a comment tactic, tutorial of nature. If the author mentioned something you do not quite agree with, or fully understand then you must inquire and suggest. Be part of the conversation, because building high quality Back links and getting people to visit your blog from those will require high value content in your comments.
Follow these simple steps, and get much better results from your commenting efforts and gaining a lot more website traffic. Make your comment interesting enough to inspire curiousity, and not only will people visit your site but they will actually stay and appreciate your work.
