Benefits of Blog Commenting in SEO [Great SEO Value!]

Many bloggers don’t pay heed to blog commenting.


Since commenting on other blogs doesn’t generate any do-follow backlinks, most of them think that blog commenting is a waste of time.


If you think the same way, then you’re totally WRONG!


Yes, I’ve tried commenting on other blogs (still continuing) and the result is always fantastic.


And now, I’ll let you know the impact of blog commenting in SEO in this blog post. So read on…


Benefits of Blog Commenting in SEO!

There are many reasons for posting your comments on other blogs.


Here are the main reasons for doing it –

Blog Commenting for Backlinks

The first thing that you’ll earn by commenting on other blogs is backlinks. You may think that these backlinks have no SEO value because of not being do-follow links.


But in reality, Google counts these backlinks even though those are no-follow ones. You can check this by visiting your Google Search Console.


After going to the Search Console dashboard, select your site.


Now, go to Links to Your Site under the option named Search Traffic.


You’ll see that Google has counted all the no-follow backlinks. So, why does Google count all the no-follow links? It really has some value, otherwise, why will the search giant do this [common sense!]?


You can also check that SEMrush shows all the no-follow links.


Although the commenting links are no-follows, they play a vital role in building backlinks.


Indexing Will Be Faster

If you write comments on other blog posts linking to your blog, you’ll see that your blog is getting indexed faster than before.


This is because you’ll see that the manual indexing request of Google Search Console has two options – only the URL of a post or the URL as well as the direct links of a post.


If you leave comments on other blogs, it’s very likely that the blogs where you made your comments can start indexing your ones because when Google spider comes to crawl piece of content, it crawls all the links inside it.

Your Blog’s Rank Will be Boosted

Counted backlinks and faster indexing will surely boost your blog’s ranking. So you’ll get more organic traffic.


To give you an accurate idea about it, I’m gonna show you an example.


Once I ranked one of my blog posts with a specific keyword on the second page of Google. Since the keyword was a buying intent one, I wanted to boost its ranking.


I was searching for the ways to give a quick ranking boost and finally, I decided to build some backlinks through commenting.


So, I did that and within a few days, I found the post on the first page (maybe at 7th) of Google with the same keyword.


From then, I started leveraging blog commenting.


You’ll Get Targeted Traffic

Blog commenting helps get targeted referral traffic. As your blog’s link is left on other blog posts, many visitors from those blogs will surely visit your blog too. I get huge targeted traffic by commenting on other blogs.


But to do this, you need to find those blogs that are relevant to your blogging niche. If you leave comments on irrelevant blogs, then you won’t get targeted traffic.

You can see that I got so much traffic from the above three sites within a few months. All the traffic came from my commented links.


You Could Build Strong Relationships

Commenting on other blogs means you’re getting much popularity on the blogosphere. You can easily make a strong relationship with the owner of the blog where you’re commenting.


Not only is that the blog’s audience will also be familiar to you too.


Do you know Ryan Biddulph? I met him through one of his comments made on SmartBlogger.


So harness the power of blog commenting.

You’ll Get More Comments on Your Blog

Commenting on other blogs doesn’t mean that only you’re leaving comments outside of your blog. It also helps you get more and more comments on your blog too.


So you see that blog commenting has much value in making your blog popular and getting more traffic. I hope you’ll get huge targeted traffic to your blog by posting comments on other blogs on a regular basis.


While commenting, make sure that you’re following these things –

  • Comment on niche relevant blogs
  • Make thorough comments
  • Try to leave valuable comments
  • Don’t leave generic comments like thanks, or one or two common words
  • Try to make your words grammatically correct [use Grammarly or ProWritingAid grammar checker to detect flaws and correct them]
  • Also, keep an eye on your spellings


So, these are the benefits of commenting. I hope that you’ll now start leaving your valuable comments on other blogs.
