Have you ever known what a lot of comments mean for your blog?
If you ask this question to bloggers, you’ll be surprised by how short-sighted many answers are.
Whatever the answers will be, many are instigated by emotions more than reason.
As human beings, we tend to be so self-centered to the extent that we’re unfair to ourselves but we don’t notice.
One simple principle in life is, “If you want to receive, then you must be ready to give.”
We’ll point out how to ‘give ‘to ‘receive’ when we indicate ways of getting many comments on your blog posts.
Before we get into how to get comments you so much desire on your blog posts. What do many comments mean for your blog?
1. More Traffic
When people comment from social media pages, their followers will notice and the curious ones will land on your website from there, hence more traffic.
Some search engines rank you higher based on the number and quality of comments on your blog posts which means more traffic for you.
2. Higher Ranking on Search Engines
If you have many people commenting on your posts, essentially, you have great and highly search engine optimized content which search engines love so much. They’ll rank you higher for this.
The number of comments you have in your posts and your blog in general, if useful and very beneficial to the public means you’re some kind of an authority in a certain area of knowledge. This is a big plus for your reputation.
4. Boosts ‘Ego’
There is positive ego and negative ego. All of us have some kind of ego whether positive or negative or some measure of both. Positive ego = knowledge + confidence + sharing. This kind of ego is constructive. This is the best ego to have. Many comments on your posts boosts positive ego if you’re a positive thinker which in turn motivates you to do more of what people are appreciating.
5. Build Relationships
Regular commentators on your posts appreciate your stuff a lot and they’ll also appreciate you in the long run. These people are likely to be your favorite which will end up seeing you form some kind of friendship and partnership with them which might be highly beneficial to you.
Many comments on your posts are a great source of motivation to write more helpful stuff. You will always work hard if people appreciate your stuff and even harder if more people do.
7. More Knowledge For You Thus A Great Blog
More comments for your posts is a great opportunity to learn stuff that you don’t know. Of course, the comments must be from knowledgeable people for you to learn. Always know that a different point of view from yours on a subject is a new lesson learnt.
