As you visit more and more blogs, you start to pick up on the little things, and those little things all start to add up and make for a more engaging and informative experience for your readers!
What is Jon talking about?
CommentLuv WordPress Plugin
I’m talking about something I first noticed about 2 weeks ago on another Internet Marketers blog, the ‘CommentLuv‘ WordPress Plugin.
Now they do say a picture paints a thousand words so here goes!
In this example if you look at the bottom of Nigel Griffiths’ comment, you can see that the CommentLuv Plugin automatically adds a title link to the comment authors last blog post!
This has some great advantages for you, your readers and the comment authors and will increase traffic to your blog and that of fellow Internet Marketers.
It also provides a more useful visit for your readers and because these links to posts from other blog authors open in a new window, they won’t adversely affect your bounce rate with the search engines.
In fact, search engines will love it!
You are (effortlessly!) producing external links to directly related content. Google happens to love this and it all adds to the greater scheme of getting your blog and content ranked higher with the search engines whilst giving your audience exactly what they want, consistent and relevant content.
So what else does CommentLuv do for me?
You’re probably aware that to increase traffic to your blog, you need to take an active role in other peoples work!
One of the best ways to do this is to comment on other peoples posts, demonstrating that you are knowledgeable in your field and leaving your signature (blog link) across the internet.
It takes a bit of time to get established, but this is one of the best ways to increase traffic to your site and more importantly, targeted and relevant traffic.
CommentLuv helps you do this!
Providing you manage to filter out the SPAM and the ‘let me help you with your SEO’ comments, then what you’re left with is a rich, niche related selection of other peoples posts that you can visit and leave comments against.
Instant, directly related backlinking…
To me, this is all about saving time, arguably our most important commodity!
I personally don’t want to spend hours trawling the internet trying to find relevant content to comment on and link to. Why not have that content delivered straight to your blog for you? Find what ‘recently posted’ article interests you and pay that site a visit?
Paid or Free?
Of course there’s a paid version of this Plugin but there is also a pretty good Free version as well. You can find out more details about both here.
I’ve been using the Free version for about a week now and love it! I’ve had a quick look at the paid software and it appears to have some great additional functionality like:
- Add keywords
- Integrate Twitterlink
- Add a ‘Top Commentators’ widget
- Social enticements
- Advanced backlink features
But for me at the moment, I’ll stick with the free version. by all means have a look yourself though!
Hope you find this Plugin useful?
