By applying the following blog commenting practices, you will be able to credibly assert yourself as an authority in your market, help you stay in touch with what is happening in your niche, and cultivate substantially more interest in your platform.

Legitimate blog commenting practices are often ignored or abused by Internet marketers.

  • When commenting on a blog, use your real name, not an alias, keyword, Company name or website URL.

Remember, people like to connect with other people.

Using your real name also fosters trust and increases transparency.   When other readers want to contact the blog commenter, they expect to connect to a person, not a generic alias, website URL, etc.

Blog commenting practices is all about promoting yourself and your website.

  • The best blog commenting practices recognize that blog comments are not advertisement bulletins.

Instead of blatantly promoting yourself in the comment portion of somebody’s blog by simply trying to insert your website URL;  try adding value to the topic being discussed by providing your unique insight naturally.

The best blog commenting should exude confidence in your experience of the topic being discussed.

  • All blog commenting practices should be relevant to the topic, to the reader’s needs and to their interests.

Pick a specific item from the blog post you intend to comment on and provide some original insight on that specific item.

  • Make your comments specific, thoughtful and pithy. Never over-generalize your comments.

A pithy, thoughtful comment that brings your own unique insights to the forum will more likely get rewarded by being posted, and should encourage additional comments by other blog readers.

It is important that the writer of the blog post you are commenting on understand that you have read the blog post.

  • Before making wild accusations and jumping to erroneous conclusions about a blog post, take in the full context of the post you intend to comment on.

Some blog commenting practices recommend “stirring up the pot” to generate controversy.

Unless your controversial assertions are calculated and carefully researched, you could be making a serious mistake by appearing conceited and overconfident or by making the author of the blog post appear foolish or poorly informed.

Neither scenario is not what you want to achieve.

If you do not fully understand t he full context of the blog post, ask the author for clarification before providing your insights.

  • All blog commenting practices preach staying positive and civil.

Never use angry or destructive language when submitting blog comments. All this can do is embarrass the blogger and bring down your credibility standing.

Submitting positive useful grammatically correct blog comments can only improve your standing in your niche market.

  • The best blog commenting practices recommend refraining from automated blogging submissions.

Prior to commenting, most blogs will have an area for you to provide your contact information.

This is where you can insert your website URL to acquire back-links and allow other people to contact you.

If there is no place for you to insert your website URL, it is acceptable practice to insert your link at the end of your comment with a contextual lead in to relevant content on your website.

Even the best automated blog commenting software cannot determine or replicate relevance, specific details or authority.

Only live human beings having their own opinions and lifetime experiences can successfully engage in understandable blog commenting practices.

No software program on earth has yet been able to duplicate the blog commenting process enough to assert your brand and authority in any niche market.

As you comment on a variety of blogs in your market niche, you should also be able to acquire inspiration from the blogs you read.

  • This helps keep in touch with your audience needs.
  • Helps you stay current on new breakthroughs and trends.
  • Helps you keep an eye on and get a “leg up” on your competitors.
  • Get ideas from leaders in your niche for social media networking, etc.
  • And, to build an article portfolio to use in your article marketing endeavours.

Using the above blog commenting practices can only help you with your marketing when done properly.
