Blog Traffic And Comments A Big Worry Of Bloggers!
This is one of the biggest worry all bloggers faced at least in the initial stage of their blogging.
But do not worry!
Here Is A Golden Tip!
No Comments! No Traffic!
These are some of the common words we hear quite often in the world of blogging.
This month’s post at IWSG (Insecure Writer’s Support Group), I would like to write something on these two words!
As we all know every first Wednesday of the month IWSG group members join together and air their fear, doubts, activities, suggestions etc. through blog posts.
Alex Cavanaugh the well know blogger also known as the Ninja Captain and the Sci-fi Author-initiated this group. In the previous month, IWSG celebrated its one year of successful journey. I take this time to appreciate Alex and his wonderful team for running this show.
Coming to the subject Comments and Blog Traffic all bloggers eagerly look for this two!
Any new blogger for that matter even the Pro. Bloggers look for traffic and comment into their pages!
This is an indisputable fact!
Though I mentioned this fact repeatedly in some of my earlier posts, I would like to emphasis upon this fact ones again in this post.
Yes, every blogger, irrespective of his or her seniority/experience needs traffic as well as comments!
Ask any blogger! The very purpose of their blogging is to expose their writings to the people around and to know or get their opinion about it through comments.
I am sure 99% bloggers will join me with this statement. A meager 1% or less than that may differ on this statement. That less category may just do blogging for their self-satisfaction. Anyways, I am sure about this thing and I can very well say this from my few years of experiences in blogging. Yes, I can assuredly say that our actions do speak volumes even in the case of blogging!
I mean to say that our constant visit to other fellow bloggers pages and read their post with an analyzing/critical mind we will surely have something to say about their post. And we do write comments there. Of course, in return, this will catch the attention of other fellow bloggers or visitors. Our constructive opinion (comments) will surely get noticed by the readers and that leads them to our blog page.
But here we need to be more careful while commenting, please stick to the relevant subject and comment.
Let that not be one line or a generic comment like “excellent” “well done” “supper” “great” etc. I am sure such comments will go unnoticed even by the blog author and if your comments are genuine and to the subject, it will attract readers and the blog author.
Sometimes if you can’t fully agree with some of the points mentioned in a post and you have totally a different opinion other than the mentioned one. Good, that is where you want to air your opinion, then present it politely and in a pleasing manner. Let, that feedback may not be in a serious or a demanding way. Your genuine presentation will get the attention of the blog author and he will write his opinion and sometimes it may lead to a wonderful discussion through comments. This will automatically generate traffic to your page. Yes, such constructive comments bring traffic to your pages.
This particular aspect I noticed in my blogging journey and I can show many such bloggers in the blogging world who very carefully practice this.
So my dear friends, post your comments on the pages of fellow bloggers and increase your traffic and comments.
I would like to point out three of such prolific blog authors who respond to the comments they receive on their pages. They do this very seriously in their pages. Though they are all very busy people with a lot of other commitments they find time to attend all real commenters who comment on their pages. Of course, they find time to drop into your pages as well.
Here in this post, I would like to introduce some of my friends, few prominent personalities who authoritatively write about many different subjects and also practice what they preach/write.
