Tyler at Niche Store Journey recently wrote “Driving Traffic Using Blog Commenting.” He did a great job of explaining how to use blog commenting to get backlinks.
As explained by Tyler, there is a right way and a wrong way to leave comments on blogs. Do it right, and you will be rewarded with the ever-coveted backlink. Do it wrong, and your comment will either be deleted or it will never see the light of day.
There are times when I shake my head in wonder at comments that are left on my sites. For example, I recently wrote a post on this site where I gave an update of my daughter who had been hospitalized with pneumonia. Someone left a comment on that particular post that was along the lines of, “Great post, as usual, about a controversial topic. I like your spin on it.”
Hmmm. My daughter was in the hospital, and this person liked my spin on that. I never knew having a sick daughter was controversial! Clearly, the person didn’t even bother to read the post before leaving his very stupid comment. This is exactly the type of comment that I will delete (if it was already published) or ignore (if it is waiting for manual approval).
Just a few moments ago, I got an email about a comment that is currently waiting my approval. The comment reads, “That was amazing! No words could further describe that other than amazing. Thanks!” Wanna guess whether or not I’m going to approve that comment?
This got me thinking. I bet many of you have seen doozies. Let’s see who has gotten the worst comments (but keep them clean and family friendly, please). What are some of the comments that didn’t pass your particular blog-commenting standards?
