How to get comments on your new blog

Your first post on your new blog and you find that there are no comments . It is really frustrating and i think we all go through this in our initial stage of blogging.When i started this new blog i was also a bit apprehensive about getting comments on my blog .

No one is visiting your blog and hence no comments , how to solve this problem?

For a new blog when a visitor visits it he/she will take a look at your comment section to judge your blog’s credibility which is a very natural instinct. If you have Zero comment in your blog then it is very likely that they will leave your blog.

Here are some ways to get comments for your new blog :

1. Offline sources : If you have a good social circle and supporting family then you can ask them to visit your blog and post a meaningful comment on your new post.

2. Blog commenting : Commenting on other blogs can bring in new visitors. If you leave quality comments, blog owners will visit your blog and comment. You should try to visit 10 to 15 blogs everyday and try to add meaningful comments.

3. Social networking: Make some friends in social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook and ask them to retweet your posts or share them . If you follow this you can easily increase traffic to your new blog.

4. Participating in forums : Forums like Digital point can bring you good amount of traffic .You need spend some time in the forum regularly by participating in the discussions and add link to your blog in your signature.

5. Write killer articles : You need to write unique contents otherwise all the above methods won’t work as “CONTENT IS KING”.

    Intelligent commenting, unique quality content and some Search Engine traffic — all can help a great deal in getting yo some comments for your blog.

    However, I noticed that the “k” in “CONTENT IS kING” above was small. Was it accidental or intentional? ;)

    Here I will repeat some of my own comments which I had posted on one of the discussions started at blogcatalog.com. It was also related to the same thing – how to get comments on one’s blog. Here it goes..

    The thing you have to learn is to learn the art of networking in this blogosphere. And one of the best ways to do it is to visit other blogs and take out some of your time in leaving a comment. And you should make it a habit. One thing, I don’t understand people saying – I don’t get any comments? You will. You need to learn to comment first before expecting comments. There is nothing wrong with it. Also, you need to follow some basic rules that will surely make people leave their comments-

    1 – Your article should be compelling enough for others to leave their comments. End up your article with a question for your readers.

    2 – Make sure that your commenting box or commenting link is easily visible to your readers.

    3 – Avoid using image verification or anything like it. Make it as easy as possible for others to comment.

    4 – Take out some of your time to visit related blogs or related posts and do leave your comments there. Also, include a polite request to make them visit your blog.

    5 – Avoid cluttering your blogs with too many ads. Make your design look neat and clean. Design also makes a difference, to me at least.

    Follow some of these tips and I am sure you will see the difference very soon.

    I am a new blogger of about a month ago and I was so disappointed that until I don’t see comments in my comment section despite of the more than a dozen posts. But it’s ok coz I know I am still in the process of learning and I am considering my blog as a training ground. After learning the pros and cons, I may decide to set up my own domain to do full time. Thank you for this very informative content. Can I invite you to my blog and have a look around? After which, can you leave a suggestion through the comment section. Thank you and long live.

    I am new to blog subscriptions and I am looking for an easy reader that is nice and organized that lets me view my blogs from my homepage or has a little scrollbox that is always up on the side of the computer screen. I started to use bloglines but it is really unorganized with all the blog names lined up on the side. Thanks a lot!.
