There are some very good reasons to leave comments on a blog and at the end is a killer tip for SEO blog comments and why you should be leaving one.
First of all by leaving a comment on someone else’s blog you are basically involving yourself in the conversation. The same way you generally have a conversation with friends and family you are building trust with that person and if you share the same interests then it can quite easily develop into something more. Consider the idea of future collaborations together if you are in business.. who knows.
Bloggers love feedback so, by leaving a comment not only are you adding to the conversation you can also give them feedback. If the blog post is worth some value why not show your appreciation by saying thanks, if the blog post is about hints and tips that you are also in the know about – why not leave additional hints or tips. This way you’re more likely to get your comment approved.
Don’t be worried about putting a link in your comments, as long as it is relevant to the blog post you’re commenting on and is another point of interest so do it. This is a great way to leverage traffic from another website that may be relevant to your own site, it’s also good for off site SEO.
Now for the killer SEO blog comments tip, when you leave a comment on a blog you have the opportunity to leave your Name, Email and Website Address. Your Name is used as the text link and regardless whether the link has a no follow attribute, Google will credit you with the backlink and it will also credit you with the targeted keywords you use!! Now that’s one good reason to leave a comment.
