How do you write comments, bring visitors (you not to make spammers)
I had to laugh.
A few days ago I saw a funny photo and I found the statement is particularly striking.
In the photo we see two older women who entertain on the street:
I trust myself only on the road. On the Internet, it has become bad.
So it is sometimes really. People grumble, curse, checks and nerves on the Internet so much that the road is already more secure than the Facebook Timeline.
On the Internet, many people seem to lose their manners.
On blogs you can see that unfortunately also: Comments that are pure spam, insult or subliminal arrogant.
Here comments are a wonderful tool to get new visitors – if you do it right. Because almost every blog will give you the opportunity to leave your URL at the comment.
If readers find you then interesting, then click on your link and you’ve won a new reader.
However, almost as important is another feature of comments: You create a relationship between you and the blogger. Most of the blog comment is your first encounter with another blogger. So you should make a good impression.
But how to write really good comments?
- Have a vision
Have you ever had an appointment at you showed up in Spiderman Costume? Or as Duckwin Duck with cape and mask?
Of course not.
People with mask are immediately suspicious. They are up to something or hiding something under her cape. Such a person does not trust you.
On the Internet is no different.
If you comment, then there should be a face it – your face.
Use a Gravatar no childhood heroes or other “masks”. You should also not simply the gray silhouette, which is set by default to use.
Take a photo on which you rested and pleasant look and use it as gravatar.
Everything else makes people just suspicious – and Suspicious not click on your link.
- Have a Name
On the Internet, many people hide behind a pseudonym like.
If it were legally possible, then many would even like to blog with a pseudonym – because of the imprint obligation that goes not.
I’m not a dating expert, but if you’re imagining in your date as “Master Yedi”, then I am sure that the meeting goes wrong – unless you’re lucky and your enemy does not stamp you as schizophrenic from ,
Therefore Use the Comment your real name.
And no, please do not use your domain name as: “Harry of CoachingDeluxe.de”
The acts spammy. It looks like as if you want your domain to accommodate the comment as often as possible.
So let the.
Just do it, “Harry”.
For the domain has its own field.
- Sprinkle no links
Links in comments are like fire: you can keep warm and bring joy, you can them but also burn the fingers.
You should link to your blog so treat very carefully.
My advice: Get it.
Sure they might be able to contribute something to the discussion, but no matter how good is the link, an impression it leaves the bloggers always:
The just want to scatter his left.
Perhaps some readers that impression. It is very difficult to post a link in the comments, without looking like a spammer. And spammers leave immediately an unpleasant aftertaste.
Especially you should refrain from such comments as: “. Cool, I have written on this subject [Link]”
Seriously: Who cares? You string along You have in the “I,” -Schreier at a flea market. You can be happy if the blogger your comment unlocks ever.
If you want to generate interest and trust, then let the scattering of links in the comments section be whole.
There are better ways to get backlinks.
- not smelly
Self-praise stinks. Also on the Internet.
Some people love their own voice so much that they can tell you for 15 minutes, they had breakfast and how delicate the butter had melted on her tongue.
Here one sees self-praise also in blog comments. And to clarify: self-praise are still very much there.
We read repeatedly comments like:
- “All of these tips I use already for many years. Therefore, I also have the leading blog in my niche. A look at it, because you can learn something. “
- “Nothing new in this post, I make all things for years.”
- “Oh yes, I can live by my blog revenue and had only yesterday paid the deposit for my Mercedes SLK.”
My thought at such comments: Good for you. You get a medal. Knock you three times on the shoulder.
Seriously: holding you back with self-praise in a comment. Otherwise you’re instantly unappealing.
Oh yes, ridicule, destructive criticism and sarcasm by the way stink too.
- Read this article
Yes, this is not a foregone conclusion.
Very often you can see already busy writing hate comments or otherwise to give their two cents this phenomenon on Facebook, where people only see the headline of the article, but in Facebook.
If you do not want to pass as mustard spin, then show with your comment that you have also read the article.
Write therefore not: “Great article.”
But: “The example with the mustard I fande great. This has led me the problem so well in mind. “
Do you see the difference?
Be as specific as possible and refer you to the article – the more concrete, the better, because then you can also start a dialogue.
- Showing appreciation
People love recognition.
And if you give others recognition, then that has an important effect: People love you, too.
Imagine times before your circle of friends and a “new” comes into the round. He criticized any of your friends, one clever facts and made an effort to stand in a great light.
Thereafter, a second newcomer comes in the round and he distributed praise. He praises sincere the shoes of your friends, her smile and he is interested in it.
Which person do you find sympathetic?
Of course, the second. The one who gives recognition, also gets recognition from others.
Therefore, you should in your comments always show appreciation. No, you should the other not creep or crawl in the butt, but express honest praise.
As a memory aid: When einschleimen you tell the man what he wants to hear. When praise you tell the man what he did not expect.
Your comment should therefore contain a simple element: the compliment.
I say this not because I want that you praise me in the comments, but because it should be that way. Compliments are the best way to make himself popular.
- Increase the value
Now comes the crowning.
The most important aspect of a good commentary is that it provides added value. Ideally, your comment should enhance the value of the article and not reduce (as unfortunately do spam comments).
Value you can deliver in the following variants:
- Tell of personal experiences – frequently seen in a blog article only the experience of a person. If you bring your experiences in the discussion, then people see that it also works for other or that one can make it otherwise. A good review leads readers to this reaction: “Oh, he had the same problem as me. I look at times on his blog. “
- Place meaningful questions – In your comments you should ask questions that others may also face – then see other readers directly reply. You should also as concrete and targeted questions. A beautiful question is always: “How would you to Problem X approach? I’ll be there no more … “
- Fill a point – Many bloggers write like List Posts with a fixed number of points. If you have a dream, then that would be perfect material for a review. But please do not maliciously or with the big finger. Simply Put your tip in addition to the table. If you’re lucky, the blogger adds even his article to your comment.
Improve the World
On the Internet there are plenty of trolls and spammers who make the web a place where one is reluctant to go.
We can change that. We can start with ourselves and write comments that are not spammy. Comments that provide added value. Comments that give sincere appreciation and not bursting with self-praise.
At the end only all can win: The blogger gets more comments. You get by good comments more attention. And both of you present yourselves in a dialogue.
What more do you want?
