Here’s a question. If blog comments are mini-resumes, which comments are bringing the most traffic to your blog?
When you leave a comment on a blog, there are three things at work.
- Your desire to participate in the blog conversation and topic.
- Your desire to increase your link credits through blog comments.
- Your desire to encourage traffic from your comment to your blog.
A lot of pro bloggers cover the first two, but I want to explore the last one. If you really want to drive traffic to your blog through comments on other blogs, is it working for you?
Have you been paying attention to your blog referrals and incoming traffic to see where your traffic is coming from in relationship to your blog comments? It’s a very good question because we blog and comment on the premise that blog interaction helps drive traffic.
