Hey everyone, today I want to talk with everyone about the purpose of comments on your website. I will also be covering some of the do’s and don’ts of leaving comments on other people’s website. Along with showing you how leaving quality comments on other people’s website and receiving quality comments from other people really can help out your SEO.
Why do we leave comments on people’s websites?
The whole idea of leaving comments on other people’s website is if you really enjoyed their article and you would like to let them know about it. Other reasons why you would leave comments, questions, or feedback would be if you still had questions after you were done reading their post.
It’s also nice to get the conversation going and get other people involved in the discussion. This is a great way to get to know the author and gain some high quality backlinks as well.
A few tips on what you should and shouldn’t do when leaving comments
Whenever you leave comments you want to make sure you keep them related to the content. Listed below are a few things you should be doing when commenting as well as a few things you should avoid.
What you SHOULD be doing
- Make sure your comments are relevant to the post.
- Ask questions! I love it when people ask me questions.
- Try and post comments that will start a conversation and create some dialogue.
- If something you read in their article stood out to you make it be known in your comments. This will also let the author know that you actually took the time to read their article.
Here’s what you should avoid doing when leaving comments
- Avoid leaving short comments that don’t add any value to the post you are commenting on (Here are a few examples) “Nice website great job” “Great post thanks for the Info.”
- Asking questions that are clearly answered in the article. This proves that you didn’t read the article.
So what does any of this have to do with SEO and getting higher rankings in Google?
Comments should add value to your blog post and whenever Google crawls your site they will be looking at your comments as well as your content. By having quality well thought out comments that add to your article topic, this will give you more authority and give you a nice boost in the search engines as well.
Google sees this as engaging quality content and very active so they will naturally rank your content higher as a result of it. This works both ways and you should follow these guidelines when approving comments on your own website as well as leaving them for other people.
Whenever you leave comments on other websites in your niche you are also creating a quality backlink which will also help you get better rankings as well.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone!!
