I picked up on a really interesting article written by fellow blogger Danny Cooper which covers his blog comment case study. The study takes place over a month and Danny goes over all the areas of his website in detail that benefited from the experiment. I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t done a whole lot of blog commenting, mainly due to being lazy, but from what I can see here I now have some motivation to get in gear.
When I first started this experiment my main aim was to use blog commenting purely as a link building tool, and report back to you guys. Since then I have learnt that blog commenting is soo much more! You’re probably think what could blog commenting achieve thats worth more than the thousands of inbound links from big bloggers? I’ll tell you what, networking.
I can say from experience that I’ve been more inclined to post about something, or at least notice someone when they’ve left a comment on my site. A lot of the friendly and informative posts have also lead to some great friendships and business opportunities. Getting your name out there can only lead to positive things as long as you’re positive to begin with. Remember when blog commenting to leave a useful post that is information rich and dead on in regards to the topic at hand.
