  1. Hi Vineet!

    I have seen that asking for comments really works very nice. Sometimes you cannot just sit and wait for people to comment, right? You need to ASK them 🙂

    Also I have seen that blogs with the commentluv plugin get more comments in general.

      Hi Mahaveer,

      I agree with your point that bloggers may ask for comments. Sometime you need to ask instead of just waiting.

      In my opinion the best way to get comments at your blog is by commenting at other blogs. They will for sure comment at your blog.

      Connections matter a lot. You need to build connections with your readers so that they can get connected with you through comments.

    Hi Vineet, I always try to end my posts with questions besides I’m a very curious person. I’m a little shy on the promotion side, always afraid to show my own stuff too often. I may have to do a chart and see if I’m really 80/20 or 95/5 with that one. I like your blog, nice, simple and clean 🙂

      Hi Akhil,

      Of course CommentLuv is an amazing plugin but you can’t get more comments after installing it to your blog.

      How can you get comments if you don’t have connections. If you don’t provide quality content then its not possible to get more comments.

      Reply to the comments of your readers so that they will come to you again.
      customer satisfaction is the best and main priority for every blogger.

      Hi Wilfred Imbukwa,

      You know sometime you need to ask for comments because there are many things necessary for making connections and comments are the basic part of any blog.

      If you want to show the real value of your comment then comments at your blog will show it.

      More the comments and more the value.
      Use social media or even the blogs of your readers to ask for comments.

    Usually you can find a ‘What Do You Think…?” Sub-heading
    with a question near the end of the post.

    Also at the end of each post you can find a special Comment Writing Reminder, (Btw. as you can read about in a recent post about Success Journal Notes) and when you actually do write your Comment (or Reply on a Comment from an other Commenter), besides an About the Author Box.

    Now recently you can also see a – Thank You for Your Comments – Message under that Autors Box. to help motivate you to also keep on writing Coments & Replies on other, or new posts in the future.

  16. Hi Vineet,
    You are truly 100% right,
    If we want success in any field. we will cooperate with other and say please do that.

      Hi Areesha,

      May be it is right to ask for comments but in my opinion you will never get regular comments and can’t make loyal readers if you just keep asking for the comments.
      I have seen at many Facebook groups where bloggers ask for comments from each other. But does it work? I don’t think so.

      They will comment once at your blog post but later what? You have to ask again.
      If you want to get more comments then share the content which can make feel like yes here you are, this amazing content should be shared. Yes, I should connect write the blog owner.

  17. I really have to work on work on spreading the love by creating more time to visit other people’s blog. This is the area in which I really fail my blog.

    I also dont ask for input enough, at least i am not consistent in it. This is great reminder of a very necessary step because people do not necessarily know that we need them to do that.

    I think comments could also be a great place to inspire more content.

      Hi Wendy,

      For sure if you visit others websites then they will surely come to yours but only if you let them know about it.

      Share their blog posts, connect with through social media so that they can come to know that you are interesting in their blog and want to do the same.

      Blog commenting is the best way to get more comments at your blog. More the comments you place at others blog more comments you will get in return.

  18. Hello Vineet

    Both commenting and visitors are intertwined. Therefore to increase more comments, we first need to have a good amount of traffic.
    And as you have mentioned already, the main points are promotion and back linking.

    By writing quality comments we can divert more visitors to our blog. Recently Kevin Duncan has written a post on quality commenting and how to stand out in the crowd.
    It’s very nice topic that you have written. Hope your readers would find this helpful.

    Blog commenting is what I love the most.
