4 Ways To Get People Talking About Your Blog

blog post comments Once you start getting comments more will follow. The problem is starting. Either increase your traffic or work on getting more comments. I have installed a number of plugins that creates a benefit for the commentator and is my way of saying “thank you, please comment again”.

4 Plugins To Jump Start The Conversation On Your Blog.

Dofollow – By default, comments on wordpress are NoFollow links. These are links that have code to tell google not to follow it and not to attribute it to the destinations backlinks. By installing the dofollow plugin whenever someone writes a post on your blog they will receive a backlink to their site that will improve their SEO.

Comment Luv – Checks if the commentators URL is a blog and if so, will link to their latest blog post. People are more likely to click on a link to another post than a nickname.

Top Commentator – Shows the list of the highest commentators for the blog. The best part about this for commentators is that it’s on every page of the blog so how ever many pages you have is the number of backlinks they get. This is a popular plugin for bloggers who want to support their top commentators. Make sure you exclude your name from the list (Appearance>Widgets>Top Commentators>Edit>Exclude these users:).

Keyword Luv – Commentators can type their “their name@their keywords” into the name box and their keywords will become the link. This is another way to improve the commentators SEO ranking.

Bonus Plugin

Akismet – Once you install the plugins above you may find some spammers try to take advantage of the ‘easy’ backlinks and start spaming your comments. Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not. You can review the spam it catches under ‚ÄúComments.”
