CommentLuv is a WordPress plugin that rewards people who post comments with a link back to their most recent post on their blog. So both people benefit from the comment. It can be an extremely targeted link building strategy if used properly. The commenter receives a link back to their website. The blog owner receives positive comments that may generate more comments.
How to install.
- Just do a search for it in your WordPress back office in the Plugins section.
- After you retrieve the results you just click on the install link.
You can also choose what badge you want to be displayed under the settings tab in WordPress.
If possible use an article that is relevant content to the article you are posting about. You will be more likely to get people to click on your link if your content is similar to what the original post is about.
Using this plugin can bring you a lot of traffic and you should look for more ways to get more traffic through comments. An example would be that if you keep going back to some of the same sites to comment, in effect you are creating a partnership with the blog owner. You can also look for sites that have a high PR ranking.
If the intent of your blog is to be a component of your social networking strategy then you should consider installing this plugin. It creates a win/win situation for everybody and increases the social part of social networking.
If your site is a member of ComLuv.com, the Comment Luv Avatar that displays next to your article will show your gravatar, site description and other posts that are clickable. If you would like to register your site, just go to ComLuv.com and sign up. You can then go into the profile section and edit your personal options.
One thing I really like about CommentLuv is the ability to do targeted searches for keywords in your niche. You can search for sites that use the CommentLuv plugin by keyword, assuring that the sites you post comments on are relevant. It’s a good idea to keep up with the websites that you make comments on, so that you can go back later and see if your comment was approved. If your comment has been approved then you can see if there are any more appropriate blog posts for you to comment about. You can keep a list of the sites in a spreadsheet or you could simply create a folder for it in your favorites.
CommentLuv is an easy to use and easy to install WordPress plugin that should be used by everyone who wants to increase the traffic to their website. You can get good interaction from your commenters and you both benefit from the process.
