How To Comment On A Corporate Blog To Get BEST Benefits

Are you a fan of blog commenting?

Off course, when I read a blog that inspires me, I’m always delighted to contribute. Not necessarily because I love the post or the author, I need to fuel my internet engine and traffic happens to be the only way.

Do you know that commenting right can send an avalanche of targeted traffic to your blog within few days? There is a proper way to comment on a corporate blog that bring results. If you want to give this a shot, you need to understand some fundamental concepts about corporate blogs.

Corporate Blog… What Is That?

I have thrown this word around so much, and it’s vital I explain what it means.

A corporate blog is a blog that has its own voice, desperate to solve her readers’ needs and add value with every single post. And also, a corporate blog also has a huge readership and good page rank.

Content Vs. Context

In this information age, we all know the importance of content and often, we refer to content as being king. Well, I have no questions whatsoever. In this era, people are mindful of what they read. If you could offer a shortcut to achieving something; your uniqueness would stand out in the blogosphere.

Content is vital but context is better. The context of a blog post is the way you create your content to match the needs of your immediate and future readers. It’s not all about the length of a post these days, but how much solutions you deliver.

A corporate blog is known for their concise contextual sharing. If you must succeed in commenting on this type of blog, you need to align your thoughts and make it worthwhile.

Alright, that’s all about being corporate and what they stand for.

Now, back to the commenting strategy… Before Writing Your Comments,

1. Read the Comments Policy

A lot of bloggers don’t have time to read the guidelines of a top blog before commenting. I made this same mistake in the past and what did I get –  my comments which I presumed to be decent were deleted? Don’t let that happen to you. The first approach is to understand what the author wants and give it to them.

If a corporate blog allows you to use your keyword on the title, then go ahead and use it. If not, don’t play smart or else you could get slammed.

Sushant Says: Don’t forget to read SmartBloggerz comment policy. Many of you have broken it but I am strict in comment moderation and I mostly drop them or change it in my way which you may not like. So take a minute today, and read comment policy of this blog.

2. Read The Blog Post

Don’t just glance through, you would definitely be commenting off topic. Like I said earlier while explaining content vs context, the posts are filled with contextual highlights. There is no better way to understand what the author is trying to pass across than to read it.

Another great mistake people make while commenting is to read other people’s comment and then follow the same approach. If you ask me, this is not a good practice, because every individual (blogger) understand things differently. I might see the post from a different perspective and that made me to comment thus.

Your image as a blogger is very important – you need to stand out from the crowd and make a difference.

3. Write As Natural As Possible

While commenting, don’t try to get other readers through to your blog. It doesn’t work and I will prove it. Majority of bloggers are already well vast in their various niches. What they are looking for is not the basic information, absolutely not! They are seeking for helpful and a little above the basic. If you don’t know the topic of the post like your next meal, don’t contribute. Simply appreciate the author and ask a question if you prefer that.

Do you know that whatever you do or say as a blogger is transparent? I mean, people can see right through and judge you from that very point.

Do yourself a big favor, write as though you are talking to the author. Don’t forget to use hilarious words and quotes. This is priceless!

4. Be Creative

Just like anything meaningful in life, you should be creative as you write blog comments. Everyone appreciates it when you present a topic from a clear perspective. If you know the topic of the post like you know your spouse, don’t hesitate to write a decent comment. Share your thoughts as natural as possible. I have experienced an upsurge of traffic on my blog by practicing these simple tips. I’m sure these tips are not difficult; you can abide by it if you want.

All in all, a corporate blog is not one hatched out of heaven; they started somewhere before they added that charming “corporate” as a prefix to their cap.

If you persevere and churn out quality content, having the right context in mind, you’re going to join the likes of copybloggers and others soon.

But you must take action no matter how little. Will ya?

Blog commenting really helps me drive tons of targeted traffic to my blog every month. We should consider commenting on reputed blogs that are in our niche only and not on unrelated blogs. Moreover, as you say, we should only post quality contents as it not only saves us from our comment being deleted but also saves us from our comment being marked as spam

Comment policies are a waste of time, most spam comments come from bots and they do not read comment guidelines. The real problem is the bots most actual people write good comments. I do not agree that blog commenting can send a blast of traffic your way. Taking the time to create your own content will though.

Corporate blogs are the hardest to please. You really have to put sense to your post or else you’ll be sure you won’t see them. 🙂 Thanks for the tips.

I completely agree that corporate blogs are the hardest to please 🙂 and I think this is what make such blogs different from the rest. As for blog commenting, its not only about traffic. Its one of the best method to share and learn and I doubt readers would be interested to explore a blog which does not welcome commenters.

Is timing another decisive factor deciding if a comment approved or disapproved? My experience on commenting tells me that it is more likely to get approved for those comments on newly published blogs. And those comments do look more natural.

I like to read, but not like to comments all the time, but if found some attractive article or if i can got any problem then live to comments.
but some blog never Answer back of my question.
Bit these information is more useful. Great work.

One big no-no for me is leaving keywords in your name-field. It is unethical to do that even in a personal blog, not to talk about a corporate environment.

I’d rather you leave a long an useful comment, adding a link back to relevant post your own blog for those who care to follow you.

That way even bloggers who do not approve of links will ignore your link and approve your comment – because you are adding value!
