Blog Commenting Benefits: A Real Case Study
There are a few questions which are always in your mind whenever you start a new blog and move towards Blogging.
- How to Get Better Rankings in Search Engine?
- What are blog Commenting Benefits?
- What should be ideal Blog Post Length?
- How to do Branding of your Blog?
Certainly, you must have read different tips on the different blogs to improve your blog and every blogger does after starting a new blog. I have also been doing this from that time when I started this blog. So today I am going to talk about one such topic that is discussed very rarely by bloggers but really carries a very important role in overall SEO of your blog and that topic is “blog commenting benefits“.
This post will really change your view at the blog commenting. I am here sharing one case study that taught me about benefits of blog commenting, and how blog commenting can make your content rank higher.
Case Study: What happened when I removed comments on my micro niche blog?
I was getting a lot of comments on my blog posts on my one micro niche blog (Blogging Niche) and those posts were ranking higher in the top 10 results on Google. Later on I decided to move to Facebook Comment System from default WordPress comment system just to get more social votes, traffic etc. I was really not sure about harms of removing the old comments from existing traffic (I disabled the WordPress Built in Comments).
I saw my overall traffic dropped to 60% in just 2 days after removing those comments. Here I figured out my mistake, problem was not the Facebook comment system, it was just removing the old comments that were made by the existing traffic. So after 10 days, I again reverted back to WordPress comment system and I saw in 2 days that traffic started getting back to normal. You can also test this case study on your blog and share your experience with us.
One of the benefit of blog commenting by others and by us on different blogs is blog commenting really effects the ranking of blog posts. If you have relevant comments on your blog posts, it will be useful for you to get more organic traffic. And quality of comments will also be attracting more good comments. Therefore, if you have some old and good blog, but with many useless comments, you will see removing them will have good effect.
Blog Commenting Benefits: Can it make your Content Rank Higher?
Remember, your blog comments are considered as the part of the post content. Greater the number of high quality comments, greater will be the overall ranking of your overall content. If you remember my old blog post on “LSI Keywords are Powerful Factor to Boost Your Rankings“, you will really understand the importance of keyword variation in your post content.
Major benefit of blog commenting on your post is that it helps to improve keyword variation on your blog post. Also at the same time, irrelevant comments on your blog posts are always more harmful than good comments.
Blog commenting by you on others blogs and by others on your blog has a very important effect on the rankings of your blog posts. When you are approving blog comment by others, make sure those comments are really adding value to your blog post. Also never be shy of deleting such comments which are made by others just for the backlink purposes such as, “Nice Post”, “Good Article”. I personally hate such type of comments.
Now, to test it go to your top ranking posts, and try to figure if there is any relation between the number and quality of blog commenting on those posts or not? Share your findings with me in the comment section. So these were the useful benefits of blog commenting, and how it can alter your search engine rankings.
