As many of you will already know, blog commenting is a great way to improve your search engine rankings by building lots of relevant back links. What alot of people don't realize is blog commenting can also generate quality direct traffic with useful and relevant comments.
When I am browsing the internet I'm always coming across blogs with comments which hold no useful information or relevance what so ever and find it hard to wonder why they are even approved.
EXAMPLE 1 "Hey, great post, name here"
After reading this comment, would you click on this persons link? Didn't think so. You need to make people want to click on your link, you need to give them a good reason.
EXAMPLE 2 : "Hey, I really enjoyed your post and found it really informative, anybody who is not currently using article marketing as a traffic generation option should really take it into consideration. Since I have started using this method I have seen a considerable increase in the traffic to my blog. name here"
As you can see from example 2, your comment has more of a chance of being clicked than in example 1. Not only that but you can almost guarantee your comment will be accepted by the blog owner.
I know alot of people reading this will be using this method already and some may even put it down to common sense. I just wanted to share something with a forum which has given me so much.
