Hello Blogger ! I am writing this article on request that i got from one of my friend from facebook. He likes to know the secret of getting more comments in his blog which is an year old. I am sure he is not alone. Comments are actually the best way to build a community in a blog. Many of you people aware about the forum scripts which generally used in websites to build a clean community that drive huge traffic and great discussions. The Forums are the best place to share under categorized forums on the relevant title in a complete threaded discussion. Before blogging evolves, forums are the main place where people hook up and discuss like anything. The thread goes on and on for many number of pages. I am a big fan of many forums still and using them in needed times. Ofcourse the time i spend is considerably reduced due to blogging 🙂

Twitter traffic gives me good business actually. Yes, i can see a quality retweets for my posts and promotions these days. Whenever i recommend some quality product with worthy discount to try then people who love to save some money further retweet it to their followers and it is read by good number of people every day. So dont fall for scam or spams, it is very important. Dont simply fall for “Get more twitter followers by simply creating an account with us”. You will find thousands of such websites when you do a google search with a keystring “how to get more twitter followers“. So try safe practice in twitter followers increase.
– Best way to get twitter followers:
Retweet articles that you find interesting across blogs. Check “Networked Blogs” for more number of interesting blogs. Use “Hash Tags” while retweeting the articles. I found this 100% working technique in my case. I just dont want to promote you some false products as i have not find any solid products in web so far that gives you high quality non robot twitter followers. So, you can try out this technique to get more twitter followers.
Become an active commenter in other blogs:
100% working method i found next to twitter 🙂 . Rarely you will get some spam comments. However in 99% case you will find your fellow bloggers comments that creates a good discussion with your blogging community. Bloggers who have the thought of promoting their blog will surely comment back by visiting your blog. So dont just be a commenter who comments for back link. It is really important to give some good comment that initiates discussion in other people blogs as well.
Do Follow Comments in your Blog:
Many bloggers are so curious about getting link back to their blog. You as a newbie blogger can try enabling commentluv plugin in your blog to let them know you love comments also at same time you are ready to give a back link to their weblog. This is an effective method ofcourse. Once your blog started to grow it is advisable to stop the dofollow to avoid link juice issue.
Use a Good Commenting System:
WordPress Default Commenting System is very effective. However, if you feel like using some commenting system to add more API connectivity to your blog then you can do it. Because commenting system allows the user to comment on your blog without logging in. They may use the Twitter, Facebook API Commenting feature to comment quickly. This updates their social networking profile as well which will notify other friends of his profile.
I do have an article to give you a free backlink. You can add your weblog here if you accept Guest Articles and have Commentluv enabled in your blog. Just leave a comment with your blog url in this article.
Thats all for now. I will update this article when i come up with new tips to take your blog to good levels. Happy Blogging !
