These days a blog’s popularity is a lot like a person’s personal life. The more social you are the higher popularity your blog will gain. Blogging is no longer as easy simply putting up a post and switching off the computer “hoping” for a wave of traffic.

Visitors will only come and comment if they like your blog popularity. Every one likes being associated to popular people. Similarly, in the blogosphere all bloggers want to be associated and be linked from a popular blog that everyone knows about.

Here are some ways to know how social your blog is. Because the popularity of you blog will depend on it…

How Many Top Commenters Lists Are You On?

Whether you comment on other blogs out of interest or because you want the dofollow link juice, whatever may be the reason, try to get on as many top commenter’s list as possible. The reason is that if a blog has a top commenter’s list then it is always checked out by the other visitors. It really helps people in knowing your brand. Apart from the recognition you will also get residual traffic and SEO benefits as all top commenter’s widgets are dofollow.

How Many Guest Posts Have You Done?

It is very important to leave a foot print of your blog on other more popular blogs. It is because they have a huge readers and subscribers base. A guest post is always given special attention by readers because they know it will be different from the general pattern of the original posts. Also when readers comment on your guest post, you get an opportunity to interact with them. This helps you socialize much more deeply.

Do You Reply To Your Visitor Comments?

A social blog is a very active one! All reader comments are replied back. The blogger provides satisfactory answers to all the questions which are asked. Then the most important part of commenting, the blogger heads over to the commenter’s blog and makes a comment on his blog. This way you are ensuring that you get that visitor to visit you again and also make a good impression about your blog.

Re-Tweet Other Blogger’s Articles

This is another sign of a very social blog. It is really appreciated by many bloggers when you retweet their posts to your followers. So the best advice will be keep on sharing and retweeting interesting stuff from other blogs in your niche with your followers and Fans on Twitter and Facebook.


Being social helps a blog a lot. I would suggest using the above tips to make your blog even more popular and social. So get on to other blogs commentators list, write guest posts on other blogs, retweet and share posts from your favorite blogs and don’t forget to reply to comments coming on your blog. How social you and your blog is, share in the comments section below.

I’m have been very active on the guest blogging front recently, but haven’t been able to make too much effort towards blog commenting. I’m thinking of speeding up my efforts in this direction in the coming days.
