Traffic (Referral Traffic)

What is the hardest thing for a new blogger to get?

It is traffic; yes, traffic is the hardest thing to get for a new blogger.

We can get traffic through 3 main sources:


Organic – It takes time to rank your article. You will need to build some authority (in terms of backlinks, PR etc.) to rank higher in the search engines in order to receive decent traffic from Google.

Direct Traffic- Come on guys…. I am a newbie; nobody knows the name of my domain! How can I get direct traffic that way?

Referral Traffic – When you get traffic from another site that posted your link on their website and people visit your site through that link, it is called Referral Traffic.


“Your post link on other’s site/blog”

Read the line again you will realize how commenting can help you to get more and more referral traffic, no matter whether you are a newbie or experienced.

When you commented on other blog, you left a link (one extra link if that blog use commentluv plugin) to your blog and if your comment shows that you know the topic well, then people are attracted towards your link to know more about you and your blog.


Relationship (with Author and Blog Owner)

A genuine value comment will  help you to establish a relationship with post author.

Everyone likes feedback about his/her task and commenting is a best way to provide feedback about the article.


If your feedback is genuine and value is added, it  will  most likely grab the attention of author.

A regular visit to a blog and sharing your feedback through comments help you to build a business relationship with blog owner.


Money (Revealing Secrets)

If you are good at providing feedback, you can earn money by providing feedback through commenting on other blogs.

Now days people are providing ‘Commenting’ services to busy bloggers.

There are bloggers who maintain many blogs at a time so they don’t have time to read others blog and comment on them to get backlinks. They also don’t have time to make relationship so they like to have an assistant who can comment on other blogs on their behalf.

You can create your business model and start your commenting service today.


Tips to get referral traffic through commenting

If you comment randomly on any blog then they’re possibilities that you will not get maximum output of your effort. So follow below the tips to get maximum benefit from commenting:

1. Choose five blogs that belong in your niche (you can find the blogs through Google or through various Facebook groups).

2. Don’t target well established first page ranker blogs as they usually are so busy to notice your comment.

3. Now start following these five blogs and create genuine comments (100 word comments are good enough) on their blogs for three continuous days on three different articles.

4. From prior experience, 4 out 5 blog owners will visit your blog and leave a comment on your article as well.

5. Make a note of these four blogs and leave out the one who didn’t respond. Again, select another five blogs and repeat the process.

6. Using the method above, within one month you will have around 50-70 regular visitors who will not only visit your blog but also comment on your blog; it makes your blog a great place for discussion.

Remember: Choose blogs that belong in your niche only.


Note: You need to keep a few things in mind while leaving comments on other blogs:

1. Your comments must be genuine.

2. It should not look like a spam.

3. It’s always better to use your real name for the comment.

4. Use your own image in Gravatar to make it more personal.

5. Comments should 100+words to grab attention.

6. If possible, make comments as long as possible to grab more attention.

7. Don’t attack others through your comments.

8. If you don’t like something or disagree with some points, mention it in a polite manner.


Bonus Tips

  1. Sherrilynne Starkie

    You have an interesting writing style. Why do you break your prose into such bite sized chunks? Does it make it more tweetable? You’ve got some very good advice here, but I disagree with not commenting on A-list blogs. These bloggers do actually read their comments and most will reply when possible. In addition, you get to ‘meet’ all the other commenters.

    • Sandeep Kumar

      Hi Sherrilynne,

      Thanks for your honest comment.

      Regarding your concern on commenting on A-list blog.

      I do agree with your point that A-list blogger answer to the comments as and when they get time but my intention was to get regular traffic from by commenting for newbies thats why I suggested to target those blogs that is not as busy as A-list blog so that they can get some regular referral traffic and comments too.

  29. sandeep kuamr dan

    Hello, Sandeep
    I am very happy to see you here.I am appreciating your all three bullet points.We can connect with our same interest of people by commenting but comment should be true that will make a good relationship and I think relationship is very essential thing is blogging. Because we all that if you will alone then you cannot survive in blogging or any kind of business. So, Sandeep you are sharing an awesome post here.
    Thank you
    Sandeep Kumar Dan
    All the best for the contest

  30. Anish Sangamam

    I couldn’t agree more with your suggestions Sandeep. Referral traffic surely helps you get more subscribers as well. One mistake I made was not choosing niche blogs.

    I rarely comment on blogs articles. I only do when i really like it. In the beginning I always commented with the sole intention of getting one way links but now I don’t care much about it.Another reason is me being lazy at times.

    The only part I don’t like is Blog Commenting Services, such activity should be stopped as no blogger likes fake comments on their blog. A genuine comment always make a person happy and also keeps him motivated.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful post.

  31. Vipul Garg

    This post is a real good piece of writing and is a great help to all the newbies. Commenting, everybody knows is a good way to leave links at other blogs but the way it is made understood here is just so good. Liked the tips presented. :)
