After running a poll on the blog (I like to let them to gather more than 100 votes), we found the majority (36%) of bloggers don’t comment on other blogs.
This was surprising to me.
As you might notice from the graphic above, 44 out of the 122 people who were surveyed related their non-existing daily blog comments. Only 10 people comment on over 21 blogs per day, and just 6 people comment on 11-20 blogs per day.
A few weeks ago Justice Wordlaw IV and I were talking about the importance of blog commenting.
After using my dofollow blog directory to find quality blogs, and spending time daily leaving “well thought” blog comments, he was able to quickly bring his blog up to a PageRank of 4. I thought this was rather impressive.
For myself personally, this has also been my standard approach to building links and a network of blogging friends.
- Find related blogs
- Leave quality comments
Commenting on other blogs is valuable.
Not only does it promote engagement, but I’m always surprised by how much I learn when I spend time commenting too.
And the amount of friends I’ve found through blog commenting is unparalleled by any other form of networking.
It’s been a huge benefit to my personal and blogging life.
