How to Comment on other Blogs: 10 Tips

Me in the rice fields of Bali.

Ubud, Bali


(Updated 5/27/2022)


Blog commenting may be the most overlooked strategy for indirectly increasing blog traffic and profits.


Imagine increasing your blogging success by sharing thoughts in genuine fashion.


Everyone offers their opinion on a daily basis. Why not prosper by sharing your opinion online?


How to Comment on other Blogs: The Problem


Most bloggers struggle with this strategy because they do not know how to comment on other blogs.


Scan your spam folder. Do you see what I mean?


Bloggers usually believe that dropping as many short comments as humanly possible is the easy way to get backlinks. But the reverse strategy rings true.


Publishing genuine, detailed comments in a few strategic spots daily makes the greatest impact.


Unfortunately, few bloggers teach genuine blog commenting strategies because most blog heavily from a fear intent.


Beware Blogging from a Lack Consciousness


For example, if you fear that you do not have enough:


  • traffic
  • profits
  • business


you will seek out bloggers who teach you primarily how to get traffic, profits and business from a scarcity intent. Bloggers who teach from scarcity try to manipulate people into giving them what they want for the fear in their minds. The legions of bloggers who try to get backlinks by dropping 1000 generic comments on 1000 blogs and charge for this service add to blog commenting confusion. Unclear, new bloggers erroneously believe that if someone charges money for a blog commenting service that it must be a legitimate way to get backlinks.


Of course, the 100,000 plus spam comments written by backlink service providers in the Blogging From Paradise spam folder prove otherwise.


Let go of fear.


Comment to:


  • add value
  • help people
  • make friends


Indirectly, backlinks, targeted traffic and business flow to bloggers who comment to share value and make friends.


Follow these tips to enjoy the benefits of a genuine blog commenting campaign.


1: Make Sure Commenting Feels Fun to You


Commenting works for bloggers who enjoy blog commenting.


Work/forced/strained energy makes commenting feel like a trip to a dentist who uses a mechanic’s wrench to remove your chompers.


Engage in blog commenting if it feels FUN to you. Enjoy the process to detach from the results of the process. If you love commenting on blogs you will not worry about the fruits of your commenting campaign. Removing worry from the process allows you to comment like a pro. Commenting mindfully lays the foundation for a powerful blogging campaign.


If blog commenting feels like work you will struggle to make an impact.


Commenting mainly for fun energizes you for a prospering blogger outreach campaign.


Practical Example


Genuine blog comments I published helped lead to Blogging From Paradise being featured on:



2: Manage Your Blog Commenting Energy


When I lived in a remote Costa Rican jungle Kelli and I hut/house sat for a dog named Thunder.


She was a Rhodesian Ridgeback, a dog bred for hunting lions.


She could run, jog and walk for 10 to 12 hours a day, easy.


Opotiki, New Zealand


She once scaled a 30 foot vertical cliff like a superhero.


The breed can run 30 MPH and can run at around 20 MPH for up to 30 minutes.


I tried keeping up with her daily but my body broke down after one 4 hour hike through the wild jungle settings.


I had to better manage my energy.


Make blog commenting a fun, light, playful activity.


Don’t force things.


Don’t push yourself.


Be pulled by your pleasure.


3: Personalize


Address fellow bloggers by name.


Be personal.


Appeal to bloggers by addressing them by name.


Most people appreciate someone who spends a few moments to address them by name. Whereas most bloggers hurriedly comment in generic fashion your moment of mindful customizing lets you stand out in a positive way.


4: Be Polite


Be polite to attract kind people.


Being polite aligns you with generous bloggers who make the online journey easier to navigate.


In contrast, being combative attracts contentious bloggers who make your online journey difficult.


Make life easier. Be a nice blog commentor.


5: Reference


Reference some point in the blog post.


Pay attention to bloggers. Prove your mindfulness. Stand out in a less attentive blogging world.

Add context to the comment.


6: Sign Off


I sign off comments with “Ryan”.


Signing off builds a stronger bond with your fellow blogger.


Bloggers see your name, recognize you, dig your personal touch, and friendships grow like weeds in the Costa Rican jungle.


Personalize your sign off to add a gentle touch to your comment. Do the little things that help you stand out in a big way.


7: Relate through Relevance


Comment on relevant blogs.


Stick to your niche to bond with like-minded people.


Target your blog commenting campaign. Connect with people who enjoy your blogging niche.


For example, I comment primarily on blogs within the blogging tips niche to bond with bloggers hungry for practical tips. Blogging From Paradise readers want me to share blogging tips. Commenting on these blogs links me with readers who want what I offer here.


If you need to find blogs for commenting check out this resource:


How to Find Blogs to Comment on and a Smart System to Follow


8: Read or Scan


Read or scan the post before you comment.


Add context to your offering.

Home office view from Montverde, Costa Rica.


There is no need to devote more energy to reading when I can be devoting that energy to adding content/value/social proof to a post through commenting.


Learn How to Overlook


Practice the art of overlooking various sections of posts oft-repeated because once you have learned something it is best to learn something new.


Pro bloggers benefit from re-visiting the fundamentals daily but reading a full post of “how to drive blog traffic” with the same 10 tips ten times daily does not benefit you or fellow bloggers. Scan what you know but drop genuine comments to build friendships.


9: Agree (Largely)


I agree to be nice.


Here’s why: agreeing with a blogger’s point shows you have confidence, tact and clarity.


Disagreeing vehemently just shows your weakness, your lack of power, clarity, confidence and tact.


When you APPEAR to be AGAINST some point in TRUTH you simply are not CLEAR and CONFIDENT in what you are FOR.


Disagree politely but never attempt to prove yourself right or the other blogger wrong. Attempting to prove yourself right or others wrong robs you of happiness and a potential blogging friend.


10: BAO


Be All Over.


I am a BCLL: a Blog Comment Lounge Lizard


Being all over through commenting hinges on being intentional. Intend to meet new bloggers daily. Intend to build bonds with your blogging friends every day. Blog commenting offers you a strategy through which you can fulfill both intents.

    Hi Ryan,
    I will accept the challenge of commenting on a blog about commenting on blogs!

    I read this tip of yours about a month ago and have been trying to increase my game in it, as it’s one of the more enjoyable ways to interact with other bloggers! I love travelling and writing about it, and I love reading other bloggers, so the commenting just makes sense. Plus, I LOVE it when people comment on my blog, so again, super logical! The tough part is that the more travel blogs you read, the longer your own travel to-do list gets! There are just so many great stories and experiences out there, I want all of the places. Have a great day, hope the sun is shining in NYC!

      Hi Emily,

      Alright! Glad you’re in and I have SEEN you are in for a minute now 😉 Awesome way to build your bucket list. I do the same thing myself. When folks comment here I feel so grateful and just love building those connections. Fun, fun, fun. Yep pretty shiny here in NJ, where we are now. I hope it’s shining in your neck of the woods. Thanks for commenting!


  3. George Azide says:
    at 12:05 pm

    I agree Ryan!

    You ARE everywhere. The day I launched my latest project Blog Setup Tips, you were the very 1st person to comment on my first blog post…and nearly every one since.

    I ran into a glitch that broke my site and forced me to recreate all my content, so unfortunately I ended up losing all my previous comments, but STILL. I’ll never forget that.

    Thanks for the tips Ryan. Stay Awesome.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 7:53 pm

      Hi George,

      Way cool! It takes some energy but really, since it’s fun for me it’s not too hard to appear to be an omni-present demi-god LOL! No worries bro; happy to stop in and you betcha I’ll be back. Thanks a bunch!


  4. Catherine says:
    at 12:38 pm

    You’re right that commenting regularly on blogs builds a wonderful online community – something I’ve really valued as a mom blogger. After all, I don’t always get a chance to talk to adults throughout the day!

    I’d also add: Give your two cents. When you add value, people will want to click back to your blog and see other genius snippets you have to offer!

    Thanks for the post! -Catherine @ Ten Thousand Hour Mama

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 8:29 pm

      Hi Catherine,

      Yes we are appreciating that now, talkind to adults LOL. Me and my wife Kelli – a fellow blogger – are watching our 5 month old niece 3-4 times a week. We may chat with each other or Grandma/My mother in law but much of the day is spent watching her. I am now well-versed in the song Hot Diggity Dog! on the Disney Channel 😉 Thanks a bunch for the comment!

    Hey Ryan 🙂
    I hope you are good! Its been a long i have commented on your post (Actually my web server was hacked) ?
    Like other posts, this post is also amazingly written. These things matter a lot for a learning blogger like me!
    Thanks a lot for coming up with such amazing posts.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 8:27 pm

      Hi Vatsal,

      Oh do dude! That’s crazy frustrating man. Hope all is well now. Happy to help you bro with any experiences I can share. Great to see you back! Thanks for commenting 🙂


  6. Donna Merrill says:
    at 5:23 pm

    Hi Ryan,

    You sure got this down to a science. You know I am a comment snob and this is sage advice for folks. Always reference something in the blog post please….. I can’t tell you how many people never get to comment on my blog because of that. I feel like they are there just for the back links or to get me to reciprocate.

    Glad you put in address the person because it shows respect. Sometimes if I cannot find the name of the author of an article I’ll address it by saying hi there or something like that.

    So you have given us some sage advice as usual, and teased us a bit here. I believe with my whole being that you CAN build an empire by blog commenting.


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 7:52 pm

      Hi Donna,

      You’re one of the pro’s pros! Learned from friends like you and Adrienne Smith how to do blog commenting right. As I dive back into commenting and open em up here I see more of those same folks who never get to comment. Same reason. They do not reference anything in the post so I cannot approve their comment. Ditto on that; sometimes I’ll use some nickname based on the URL lol…lightens the mood.

      You have Donna, big-time!

      Thanks as always.


  7. Jane says:
    at 11:54 pm

    Hey Ryan,

    Couldn’t agree more! Blog commenting is and always will be a winner in my book. And there are many many benefits to it. I can go on listing them here – that’s a topic for a blog post on my blog lol.

    Nevertheless, the one thing I like to emphasize with you is that you have to do it only if you find it fun. When we push it – the whole thing loses its point!

    Blog commenting is about sharing my opinion with a community other than my own, it is about chatting, it is about leisure reading, it is about kindling my thoughts for new ideas (I always get new blog post ideas when I leave a comment) – it is about building relationships and yes the traffic is a sweet by-product if you do it correctly.

    Thanks for sharing buddy 🙂


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:50 pm

      Hi Jane,

      When we push it – the whole thing loses its point!

      Brilliant! This is an energy game, this thing we call life. Meaning, any life experience, from blog commenting to heck, anything, diminishes when we push it and improves when we use power, not force. I have fun commenting these days so I keep on commenting and having fun 😉 Thanks for sharing!


  8. Robert A. Kearse says:
    at 3:11 am

    Hi Ryan:

    Because of the proliferation of social media resources with sharing, retweets, and likes, etc., blog commenting has sadly declined in frequency.

    I use Google Alerts (immediate notification) or Talkwalker Alerts with certain keywords to keep up with current blog posts in content areas my blog focuses on.

    Also, be sure to ping the urls of the blog posts once your comment is approved for SEO purposes.

    Keep the quality posts coming.


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:48 pm

      Hi Robert,

      Both are super smart tactics to find great content in a timely fashion that’s related to your niche of interest. Then you can hop on over, share your thoughts and improve your visibility. Awesome idea too on pinging approved comments for SEO juice. Clever! Thanks for sharing 🙂


  9. Amar kumar says:

    Hey Ryan,

    Our comments need to be noteworthy in order to get the attention of the blogger. One of the best ways to maximize our traffic is to get the first comment in. On most blogs, comments are shown in order of when they were left, so if we are quick our comment will be at the top. On blogs with a lot of comments this is an important way to to gain the most exposure. Blog commenting may be viewed as a link building strategy, but it can also be a fantastic way to drive targeted traffic to your site. You have explored much interesting facts regarding this subject these keys are really sounds beneficial for us to maximize productivity level. Eventually, thanks for sharing your worthy thought with us.

    With best wishes,

    Amar kumar

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:44 pm

      Hi Amar,

      Good noteworthy point 😉 Which is why using names, signing off with your name, thanking bloggers and adding value are all such key points, to help you stand out from the crowd. Too many ignore these basic, simple steps, only to remain in comment oblivion. You show that mindful commenting reaps immense returns. Thanks for being a shining example Amar!

    Hi Ryan,

    I like your breakdown of blog comments. As an SEO manager, blog comments are necessary for building traffic and creating a presence. Would you be interested in guest blogging? (one way to be all over)

    Thanks again for the post!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:41 pm

      Hi Anthony,

      Thanks much! Comments are traffic builders and presence expanders, big-time. And it takes but a few minutes of time on each blog to build your foundation. Yes, most certainly I’d be interested! Thanks for asking 😉 Please email me with any topics you’d like me to cover:

    Hey Ryan,

    I love your energy and passion for what you do. It’s always fun to read your stuff! I totally agree about being in the right mindset – if it’s not fun, do something else or re-focus your energy. I always say ‘If it’s not fun, you’re doing it wrong.”

    A1: I would love to be in Bali right now
    A2: When I find myself with a chunk of time and a happy mood, I start firing off comments. It’s fun to know that I’m nurturing a relationship with someone, somewhere.
    A3: Same here!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:36 pm

      Hi Carrick,

      You are ALL over the place! I’ve not seen anyone engage on Twitter like you, and adding blog comments into the mix only makes you appear fully omnipotent, and omnipresent, and whatever god-like labels I can give you LOL. Mindset is everything. Which is why I waited to open comments again here. Had to feel it before I received and responded to comments again. So happy I’m having fun with it 😉 Thanks for commenting!


  12. Rhonda Chapman says:
    at 11:20 am

    Hi Ryan

    I love this post. Usually when I comment on a blog, I try to add value and also reassure the blogger that they’ve achieved their goal. Whatever it is they were trying to teach us. I think it’s a good way to thank them for adding value to my life. I hope this makes sense.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:32 pm

      Hi Rhonda,

      Makes perfect sense to me 😉 Being a cheerleader and adding props to your comment gives bloggers both a feeling of achievement and those warm and fuzzies we all crave. Awesome advice. Thanks for commenting!


  13. Ravi Chahar says:
    at 12:26 pm

    Hey Ryan,

    I have always been loving blog commenting since my starting days. I used to think about the type of comments people do.

    But the thing is the when you read the blog post and about the author then the personalized point should be clicked.

    Making that human bonds with the comments is the best action you can take.

    Thanks for the guide.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 7:13 pm

      Hi Ravi,

      Amazing how you’ve been at it on commenting for so long. You’re a champ bro!

      Thanks for sharing and for being so supportive 🙂

    Great sharing. This is really an impressive article, helpful too. We know the importance of commenting. Commenting is not only a source of quality backlinks but it is helpful to increase traffic, build relation with others, know more about something and more. So we should try to place a great comment if we want to get all the benefits of commenting. Thanks for sharing such an informative article.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 5:40 pm

      Hi Munna,

      Well said 😉 Quality links, bond builder and traffic builder too, commenting is. Writing impactful comments helps too. They need not be super long if you make an impact by crafting something valuable, and if you can entertain a bit….why not, right? Thanks for commenting!

    Hi Ryan

    You’re definitely one of the ‘gods’ of blog commenting in my book. I remember when you commented on one of my first guest posts. It really made my day to have such a well established blogger respond to something I’ve written.

    I always enjoy reading your blog comments. You always contribute to the conversation in your own unmistakable voice.

    I agree with you that it’s important to have fun with blog commenting and not treat it as a chore. I’ve definitely been able to build new relationships with some great bloggers (including you) through blog commenting.


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 11:10 am

      Hi Clement,

      A commenting god? I like that LOL! Really, you are a fabulous commentor because you are authentic, persistent and helpful through all of your shares. You give freely through comments and sweet success flows back to you. Thanks a bunch bro!


  18. Tay says:
    at 2:15 pm

    You are so right about commenting. I have had my blog for a year and didn’t understand why I hadn’t been getting any comments initially. Of course I realized later that I had to also be active on other blogs to get what I wanted and needed. Thanks for these tips!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 8:15 pm

      Hi Tay,

      Yep! Commenting can be a give and take bit. If you appear to be all over through commenting you bethca folks will find your blog. Thanks!

    I haven’t laughed so hard while reading a blog post today, like I have yours. SO thanks for the good juju right there. 🙂 And then I also learnt some great tips about blog commenting as an energy. Be a happy commenter and you attract the right people to you…Something I learnt a while back from one of your books, You called it the Golden Rule of Blogging!

    This Post is not only fun, its light on the reader yet packed full of blog traffic value!
    Awesome sauce!

    Hello Ryan,

    I find your post very useful and Funny! I love the way you right. By the way, you are right, if you don’t like commenting what is the point in doing it.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 5:10 pm

      Hi Chrysoula,

      Glad you liked it! And seeing your comment here, you are taking the post to heart 😉 And yep, no sense forcing things. I closed comments for months because I stopped having fun with it. Now….we’re baaack LOL….thanks for commenting!


  21. Sherman Smith says:
    at 9:52 pm

    Hey Ryan,

    You have to have fun when your commenting!

    The authors can feel your energy by how you comment and if you’re comment is a bit “dry” then they’ll look at it as you’re just trying to get noticed or backlinks.

    I do admit that I had to pull back from reading and commenting though. My eyesight started to get blurry LOL Hopefully that’s not a sign of old age, but there are some blogs that I really enjoy like yours for instance. You definitely give many people hope.

    #7 was a good one! There are those who are just disagreeable and yes they can be a jackass about it. This is why it’s so important to find something within the blog you agree with. Even if you disagree with a point or two, find something to agree with to bring balance back. You will definitely attract people to you if you agree with some of the points in the post versus being an asshole by disagreeing all the time.

    Thanks for sharing Ryan! Have a great week ahead!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 3:02 pm

      Hi Sherman,

      Amen! I doubled down in the FUN regard a few months back. Now I add some humor and jokes and cracks and smiles and the like, because I wished to convey some high energy vibes with all my comments. As for the jackasses I love your take LOL. Why debate, when you can compliment? Why fight, when you can agree and lift each other up? Find a point or 2 to agree on and run with it. Thanks for commenting!

    Sorry it’s taken me a while to stop by and comment on this post.

    I’m just recovering from a bug, but I wanted to swing by and say thanks for the kind mention.

    Some super solid tips here. Especially love your tip ‘Be all over’. This works on so many levels, with guest blogging as well.

    There was a space of two weeks a few years ago where Kristi Hines seemed to be writing for almost every site I was reading. Great way to make an impact.

      Hi Adam,

      No probs! Feel better!

      Way cool not on Kristi; she is one of the folks I think of when dwelling on smart, persistent guest blogging. I recall that same stretch; I believed she was a god or superhero LOL. Such is the effect of being virtually all over, leveraging your presence online.

      Always my pleasure and hey, thanks for commenting!

    Oh interesting post Ryan. As you know I love the commenting aspect of blogging and building relationships. I found your point on signing off with your name thought provoking. How do you feel about it if it is someone you have been commenting with for years? Thanks for stirring up some thoughts for me on this. Much appreciated.

    Sue 🙂

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 8:47 am

      Hi Sue,

      Actually you don’t need to sign off if you’ve known the person for years but here’s why I always do: the blogger’s readers (many of them new) read my comments as well. Good to keep introducing myself to those folks 😉 Ditto for your blog too. Of course readers know you but it’s like a little subconscious, personalized mind trick. A Jedi Mind Trick LOL, making you more endearing to a growing group of folks. Thanks for commenting!


  25. Nirmala Santhakumar says:
    at 12:47 am

    Hello Ryan,

    Awesome tips as usual! I would like to read, and implement your ideas as they are practical and executable as well.

    As you said, some bloggers do blog commenting to build backlinks and some for making the relationship. I always read the post before commenting and yes, it is to network with the co-bloggers and experts.

    Yes, of course! we should not make ourselves push to do something. Doing so would make us feel stress.

    Leaving the comments with fun would be fine and better. I would like to follow your blogging tips to get inspiration and blog with passion.

    Thanks for writing this amazing post that teaches how to perform blog commenting; keep motivating us.

    Have a good day today!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 1:49 pm

      Hi Nirmala,

      Super comment! Have fun with commenting and move away from commenting exclusively to get links. Make friends, add value, entertain and help folks through your comments. Thanks for reading and commenting!

    at 8:52 am

    I like the way you’ve written the article with lots of valuable knowledge. Thanks for covering up the details of latest techniques. Now coming to the main point! I agree with the fact that we need to have while commenting so that the authors can feel the energy of the commentator. If you feel lazy and boring while doing comments than definitively it’s pointless. There will be no point in doing it if you don’t feel fun.By the way, the article is very useful for newbies.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 1:24 pm

      Hi Rajkumar,

      That’s it! All we do is backed by some type of energy. Either a high energy/fun feeling or a low energy/bad feeling. I only comment if I got that fun feeling because otherwise, it’s entirely pointless. Waste of time really. People feel your energy juju LOL. Thanks for commenting!

    I agree with all the points you have mentioned here. Blog commenting is a great way to bring traffic as well as build relationship with other bloggers.

    I personally like to do comment on my fellow bloggers or any other post that I think, I should comment on. If a post gets thoughtful comments that not only help visitors to understand the quality on that post as well as motivate writer, too.

      Hi Umesh,

      I too like visiting fellow bloggers, and commenting on blogs. Especially on my blog commentor’s blogs 😉 Learned this trick from both Donna Merrill and Adrienne Smith. Comments can also give you a kick in the pantaloons when you are feeling down LOL. Fab motivator. Thanks for commenting!

    Hi Ryan,

    You really hit a cord with me on this article!

    As you know, I was a commenting machine for nearly two years and it was a huge help to me in terms of getting my message out there and especially connecting with people.

    However, I stopped having fun. It became a chore and I started to subtly, and wrongly, see it as a competitive thing. When I didn’t get the traffic or comments I once did I slowed down and stopped commenting.

    It has been a journey, but one where I’m excited to get back out here again and start having fun and meet more people. That’s who I am.

    This process is a grind and it can wear you down.

    Walking away for a while to focus on other things has been both good for me and refreshing.

    Now, I’m ready to get back out here and start having fun with folks again through this media because it can and does lead to awesome things happening.

    As you alluded to, when it’s no longer fun it shows in the results.

    On the flip side, the results are what’s fun and earning it is so worth it!!!!

    Have an awesome weekend Ryan and I’ll be here often again.

      Hi Don,

      Ditto! Same experience here. Which is why I closed commenting on my blog for months. Hated it. Felt like a drag. But then I dove back into commenting because it felt fun again, like I was playing, making friends and yep, reaping those sweet commenting rewards. Brilliant how this energy thing works. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Grant,

      The friend thing has been my fave aspect of commenting. Totally dig the traffic and profits but my friends make this all worthwhile. Thanks!

        Hi Magdi,

        For me, I toss SEO out of the window because God comes before Google 😉 But I do hear you, if you intend to drive Google traffic.

    Hey, Ryan!

    I love blog commenting.

    Yeah, I am not persistent as I am not consistent with it.

    But whenever I am resumed, I hop onto the commenting.

    Because that commenting helped me being in a friends’ circle of the awesome folks just like YOU! 🙂

    I understand that it is a time-taking task (not time consuming) and you have to keep doing it daily and consistently.

    Most people take it as a “link building” thing and they end up writing 2-3 lines the most. And they mostly end up in spam.

    But, blog commenting is the powerful weapon to become a noticing person in the blogosphere.

    The more you’re personalized, the more you’re connected with the bloggers.

    My power is being personal. Relate yourself to the content. And must (if you can) to share your own experience.

    So, I think I am doing okay. 🙂

    Thanks, buddy, for the awesome detailed content on this important topic!

    See me often! 🙂

      Hi Adeel,

      Fabulous comment brother! You are persistent and consistent because you keep at it, personalizing each comment. Like we’re sitting down to have a 1 on 1 chat. That’s it! That’s the secret! Most miss this 1 on 1 thing, the personalizing mindset, which is why they struggle to make connections. Thanks for sharing!

    Awesome post, Ryan!

    I know I’ve seen your name knocking around before, but I had no idea where. I was just on Quora as someone requested me to answer a question. You had already answered (you’re quick!) and as soon as I seen your name, I thought “who the hell is that? Ryan… Hmm, I know him from somewhere, but where?”.

    My brain was ticking for a few seconds and I knew it was gonna bug the shit out of me if I didn’t figure it out. So, I checked out your profile, found you ran this blog, had that “Ahhhhhh, THAT’S where I know him from!” moment, then followed you on Twitter. You followed me back within 5 minutes (you rock!), and now here I am, consuming your content and thinking about buying some of your eBooks.

    Agree with the BAO concept! If you master that, you can have a moment like I just had, which leads to an engaged user. I’ll be honest; If I hadn’t seen your name before I seen it on Twitter, I wouldn’t have blinked an eyelid and just carried on my way. BAO leads to authority, which leads to engagement and sales. It always wins, unless you’re an ass.

    I’d love to make this comment bigger, but I have to get back to consuming more of your content. 😀

    See you around!

      Hi Gareth,

      Isn’t it cool how blog commenting works? If you have fun with commenting and intend to make friends so many doors open up for you. Over time, by connecting through different sites like Quora and Warrior, and Twitter, and through blog commenting, someone can genuinely appear to be all over the place. Like magic. But it is simply acting with that intent to help, to share and to connect. Amazing how this blogging bit gets easier when we hold a purer intent.

    Hey Ryan,

    I was just thinking about what you call yourself when you are really out looking to build relationships by commenting on blogs, and you already came up with it: “Blog Comment Lounge Lizard”

    I am doing it currently, and that’s how I found you. Loved your tips and I felt good that I am doing what’s needed. Good going Ryan, and I appreciate what you do for yourself, and for us 🙂

        It does indeed. Crazy this blogging thing is, but it’s beautiful too. It’s remarkable how many people you get to know this way. Also, blogging is no longer a lonely journey what with some amazing people like you out there in the tropics 🙂

    Hi Ryan,

    Thank you for a great article. I believe that commenting on blog posts also build brand awareness not only with the author but with people reading the comments as well. Do you feel that you will gain more benefits from an SEO point or brand awareness?


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 9:22 am

      Brand awareness, definitely Kanti. Some comments are No Follow I believe I give little thought to Google. I focus on building friendships with human beings. Thanks much.

    I agree that if anyone likes to comment on others’ blogs for extra traffic and profit, but if they were commenting to make new friends, share some ideas, help newbie blogger and add and share value, then indirectly, traffic build on their blog also. Enjoy the process to unfasten from the results of the process. Thank you for sharing.
