    Not people as such - but the autoposters seem to find them just fine.

      I'll have to try this one...
      I have some traffic, but the comment rate sucks

    If you send an email to your subscribers about a new blog post they will generally comment

      I have a similar problem. I have a blog that gets okay traffic (500-700 a day lately) yet the comments just trickle in.

      One thing I've found that does help is if I reply to the comments that I do get, then those commenters come back and comment again. Also, if I comment on other blogs that I like, those bloggers will sometimes return the favour.

      Unfortunately I've been flat out for a while, so I only have the time to post to my blog, and none to using these techniques. However if I kept applying them I'm sure comments would go up substantially.

    Encourage them to leave comments. Articles which make you go "wow" or something controversial tend to get the most comments.

      It wouldn't be possible to formulate the answer better at this. I agree with Stanley. Also will help if you reply to commenters, so evolves a dialog and people come back again. People like to see that you notice them.

      Hi Graham,

      The quantity is not all. As I experienced, the quality overcomes quality generally. And the good comments may be contains further opportunities what you can exploit.

      Cheers,

    Well, one thing that i used with my own blog to encourage comments is i reward them with PR..

    My blog is a do-follow, so people like to comment on them in hope of getting good external links pointing to their blog.

    I had quite a hit with it until i changed my blog from Joomla to WP. My PR dropped to 2 from the high of 4. Now i have to work on my PR back to regain the commentators who used to come to my blog.

    But hey, this works, and you can try.

    *p/s- its still a do-follow blog :-)

    In my IM blog I get hardly any - yet in one of my non-IM niche blogs I get 20-30 per week.
