The other great benefit in following and commenting on blogs is you get to learn great strategies from others about blogging. This is how I found a gold nugget that literally opened the heaven’s for me. It is a plug in call CommentLuv.
Now you might be asking, how is commenting on other people’s site going to promote my blog? Well if you weren’t wondering, I was when someone told me this strategy. Now I have seen the light, there are a few tactics you have to implement in order to get the full bang for your time.
The first thing you have to do is go and get a gravtar and upload a photo of yourself, so it will show up on every comment you make. I would suggest it represents the kind of people you want coming to your site. Another little technique I have found makes my photo really stand out is have it be high contrast. For example; a dark shirt with a white back ground.
Now you’re ready to start to promote your site. Of course, you want to do keyword research, so you can get some search engine love. And make sure your title is a catchy one, because this is what everyone will see when you are commenting on other blogs. So now write a post about what ever your niche is, publish it and here is where the magic begins. By the end of this you will see the incredible power of what I am telling you and I am also going to provide you with an unbelievable resource of top rated sites that use CommentLuv for you to comment on.
Ok, so you now you are ready to start commenting, but I am going to share some awesome little tools this plug-in offers, because if you think this is good, it just got a lot better. They have a new version with the following features:
