Ever notice that the most successful blogs have a ton of comments on every post?
Well if you’re just starting out you’ll soon find out that attracting lots of comments on your blog can take a very long time.
If you’re in this boat, one way to jumpstart the process is to install the free CommentLuv WordPress plugin. It allows your commenters to leave links to their own blog posts when they comment.
It’s a great way to increase engagement on your site by giving an incentive for your readers to comment. (with free backlinks!)
This has been a CommentLuv enabled blog for a few months now and I’ve noticed a big jump in my comments since I started using it.
Introducing CommentLuv Premium
Well today, I got an email from CommentLuv creator Andy Bailey announcing the release of CommentLuv Premium. I’ve been been looking forward to this new version for since I learned about it and I immediately installed it on this blog.
So why should you care if this is now a CommentLuv premium enabled blog?
… Because it’s going to help your link building efforts if you take advantage of it.
First, if you comment on any post you will get a free noFollow link to one of your latest 10 posts. Sure it’s no follow, but it still holds some minimal SEO value and you’ll probably get a handful of clicks on your link as well.
But wouldn’t a juicier doFollow link be even better?
This is where CommentLuv Premium lets me to provide you with an even stronger incentive to comment.
If you now have more than 5 approved comments on this blog, your link automatically becomes doFollow. This rewards all my active commenters with some extra link juice for their efforts.
And that’s not all!
CommentLuv Premium also includes the same feature found in the popular KeywordLuv plugin.
Now when you have 8 approved comments, you can then add a second doFollow link to your comment, this time with your chosen anchor text.
When you reach this level, just add @ your keyword after your Name and your second link will look like this:
How To Use It
Taking advantage of CommentLuv on this blog is easy.
When leaving your comment, enter your name, email address, and url like you normally do.
As soon as you put your cursor in the comments box, you’ll see CommentLuv do it’s thing and retrieve the latest 10 blog posts from your chosen url which it will display below the comment box.
Select the post you want to use, and then leave your comment. Easy!
I’m quite excited to try CommentLuv Premium on this blog to see if it works out. As I see it, I’m giving all you guys an opportunity to get a do-follow link, with your keywords on a PR2 (and growing) blog.
In exchange I’ll get more discussion for each post that I write. Win-win for me and you!
I’m not going to approve any spammy comments though. So please don’t bother trying to abuse this if you’re not going to provide any additional value.
What do you think? With this blog becoming CommentLuv Premium enabled provide you with enough incentive to comment?
