    Wow, Sylviane, I have been blogging for over 3 years now, and never, never have I read an article so helpful and clear on building a better blog and generating more comments & followers. I really do appreciate your information and I want to follow your future blogs.

    Now a question, my blog is on Typepad, so I don’t think I have the luxury of adding commentluv or some of the other plugins. Would I be better served by setting up a standard wordpress blog?

    Thank you,
    David Wright

    Hi David,

    If you are not using WordPress for you blog then, my answer would be yes, it would be worth it to set up a WordPress blog. I personally believe, and I am not the only one, that WordPress is the best platform for blogging these days.

    Hi Silviane,

    I am a big fan of using blog commenting to drive traffic and to build backlinks also. I fact I came here because I clicked a comment link from Ana’s website (TrafficGenerationCafe.com).

    I have a couple of questions for you.

    I see that you recommend using Commentluv on a blog, but I don’t see you using it here? Is there a reason why you don’t want to use it?

    I understand why you might want to use nofollow on your comments. But, when you are linking out to other people’s blogs from inside your main articles, how come you use it. You speak highly of those people, yet you link to them with nofollow links. Those links would be more beneficial to those women if you let them flow PageRank. Just a thought. Is there any special reason why your embedded article links are made to be nofollow?

    I hope that my comment doesn’t sound mean or disrespectful. That is not how I intend it to sound. I am truly curious as to why you don’t use commentluv and why you choose to nofollow links from inside your main blog post.

      That OK, there, I see that you’ve noticed that I do use commentluv. Of course, I do I love it and love to have it on my own blog.

      About the follow and nofollow. When I write an articles in which I include links, I was told a while back by a SEO expert that it’s good to add the nofollow tag on the link that you link from your article. To be sure, I do use both follow and nofollow which I think seems more natural to Google.

    Hey Sylviane, thanks for giving a detailed information about how to do blog commenting effectively.

    According to me, blog commenting is a effective way to build the excellent relationship with other bloggers in the same niche. I want that every blogger should use blog commenting as a method of building good relations with other bloggers and in this way both the bloggers will be learning great new things from each other. Because knowledge sharing will give the huge benefits to every blogger in blogging world.

    Great post Sylviane. As a Blogger, I always felt that there couldn’t be a better option to be in network with other fellow bloggers than commenting on their blogs.

    Now with tips from this post, I can comment better on blogs.

    Without blog commenting the chances of strengthening the relation between the bloggers and the readers will become very weak. Through blog commenting the genuine readers interact with the other commenters and learn from them and this thing is stopped I doubt readers will even be interested to know in detail who the blogger/writer is.

    In my opinion Blog comments are the lifeblood of a blog. Comments are what separates a blog from a static website. As the conversation builds, so will your relationship with your readers and so will your blog\’s popularity. Encourage your readers to join in the discussion and leave comments and respond promptly to the comments left by your readers to make them feel valued. Just as you don\’t like to be ignored when you address someone in person, you don\’t want to ignore your readers when they address you through a blog comment.
