Why and how blog comments can still benefit your marketing and SEO

Blog comments

While blogging is a fantastic way to share information about your business and industry, to educate your audience and build trust, it’s a one-way street. You’re the only one doing the talking. But when you allow comments you’re no longer just broadcasting but encouraging a two-way dialogue with your readers.

But of course maintaining a comment section takes time and resources. It’s not uncommon for popular bloggers to spend hours addressing comments, hours that they could use to craft another post, or handle other tasks to promote their blog further. Then there’s the issue of spam, which can have a negative impact on your site’s search engine optimisation (SEO) efforts.

So do blog comments still matter or help in any way, especially now that there are so many social media platforms available to discuss a piece of content?

It depends on your goals. Many businesses have chosen to take the conversation to social media and remove blog comments, like we did, because they have a big following and believe more people can join in the conversation this way.

But if you’re a small business just getting started online, and you’re only now taking the steps to grow your social media following, having a comments section on your blog is encouraged and can prove to be beneficial to your business. Here’s why…

How comments can benefit your marketing

Here are just a few reasons why having a comments section on your blog can benefit your marketing efforts:

Direct interaction with your audience

When people don’t have access to a human aspect, they find it easier to dismiss a blog as just a brand or a faceless entity that doesn’t care. The blog comments section gives you the unique opportunity to do a little PR by appearing reachable and human.

Also, having a comments section where you interact with people shows that your blog is not a one-way street, where you blast your content out to them and you’re unwilling to hear from your readers. This is particularly important if you’re trying to build your blog traffic.

Build authority

When you see a blog post with a good number of comments, it usually indicates a certain authority. But authority isn’t built just by publishing a great blog post and having lots of comments from your readers. You can build it further by replying to comments and interacting with your readers. So read the comments you receive and answer questions and concerns, and add to the conversation to show the world you know you’re knowledgeable and an expert in your field.

The enjoyment of being a regular

A coffee shop that I go to almost daily knows what I’m going to order before I order it. I love that. It’s one of the great things about being a regular.

So your comments section is where the regulars gather. After some time, they’ll get to know each other and your blog. They can help turn your blog from being just a blog, or a sequential posting of articles, into a conversation that happens every time you post new content. So think of the blog comments section as the coffee house of the web, where you introduce the topic of conversation, and then regulars start discussing it.

Makes conversations easier to follow

Allowing social media to be the primary platform for conversation on your content may bring some interaction, but it’ll likely be for a short time. That’s because conversation on social media fades away as the news feeds change.

What’s more, a conversation happening in many different places becomes fragmented, diluted, and difficult to follow. Different people might be saying interesting things about your content on Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook, but you don’t always know about it. It’s frustrating.

So, a comments section makes it easier for readers who find your blog content to follow along and make sense of how the conversation goes.

Of course, you also have other options that can help bring that “outside” conversation back onto your own blog. Many blogs use comment systems like Disqus or Livefyre that help tie your blog’s comments into that social pulse.

Build a community on a platform you own

You don’t own your presence on social networks like Twitter or Facebook. These platforms come and go, but your blog is forever. If all conversation on your content is happening on social networks, what will you do in the event these data silos move on and all that great content is lost?

Stands as social proof of your blog

If you see a blog post with lots of comments, you’ll probably be curious to know what people are talking about. Furthermore, you’ll be more likely to join in when there are plenty more in the conversation. This is social proof: when we see a crowd, we think there must be something good happening there. So if you have a comments section, make sure to do your best to encourage people to jump in as comments help encourage more comments.

A great place to get new ideas for fresh content

If you’re looking for new content ideas for your blog, the comments section is a good place for idea generation. It’s a group of people batting ideas around. So use the additional tips, advice and questions from your readers to create a new interesting blog post (or two or three).

How comments can help boost your SEO

But comments aren’t just beneficial for your marketing efforts. They can also help boost your SEO efforts.

You already know that Google loves quality content. That doesn’t just refer to the content you produce, but also to the ones your readers produce – in this case, comments.

Google’s John Mueller confirmed Google views comments as part of a page’s content, also adding that comments are a positive signal when they’re insightful and add to the conversation:

In a Hangout in 2014, John Mueller said great comments can be a positive thing for a website.

“That’s something where we essentially try to treat these comments as part of your content. So if these comments bring useful information in addition to the content that you’ve provided also on these pages, then that could be a really good addition to your website. It could really increase the value of your website overall. If the comments show that there’s a really engaged community behind there that encourages new users when they go to these pages to also comment, to go back directly to these pages, to recommend these pages to their friends, that could also be a really good thing.”

So if you’re getting good comments, they not only add to the quality content on your page, they also show user engagement and can reflect how popular and authoritative your site really is.

And here’s another SEO benefit to consider: if a reader leaves a good comment, they’re more likely to come back and revisit your blog to read new comments, or even visit other pages on your blog and website. Plus, those who leave a comment are also more likely to link to your page so others can read their comment too. This is also a good way to earn links.

Be careful, comments can get spammy

Just like you ensure your blog posts are high quality and bring value to the conversation, you should also do the same with the comments you receive. Why? Because while great comments can boost a site in the search results, poor quality comments can have a negative impact on your website.

Let’s explain. It’s not just Google that values and rewards great content (or punishes low-quality one), but also your users. If they see lots of auto-approved spam content selling pharmaceuticals and get rich quick scams, they will perceive your blog (and your site, by extension) as being low quality, even if the blog post might be very high quality. But if the comments are interesting, useful and add value to the conversation, users are more likely to stick around and join the discussion.

So make sure you’re constantly reviewing comments and not approving low quality or spammy ones.

If you’re worried about spammy comments negatively affecting your site, make sure to read Google’s tips on how to prevent spam.

Here’s a short overview:

  • Keep your software up-to-date and pay extra attention to important security updates. You don’t want spammers taking advantage of security issues or vulnerabilities in the older versions.
  • Add a CAPTCHA like reCAPTCHA that requires users to confirm they’re human beings and not an automated script.
  • Close old and inactive comment threads. If you have posts with lots of comments but people are no longer adding new comments, you might consider disabling any new comments for that post to prevent spammers from abusing it.
  • Moderate all comments. You should review all comments before they go live. Now, if you have a popular blog and think you don’t have time to review all comments, you could at least require moderating for comments with links to ensure no spam gets through.
  • Blacklist spammy or inappropriate terms like phrases related to the pharmaceutical industry.
  • Use the “nofollow” attribute for links in the comment field. This will prevent spammers from targeting your site. There are blogging sites (such as Blogger) that automatically add this attribute to any posted comment.
  • Use anti-spam tools like Akismet to prevent spam on your blog and site.

Wrapping up

If you’re blogging for business, know that real value results from a community dialogue that leads to loyal, emotional connection. You can’t achieve that if you’re preventing your audience from interacting with you, and each other, on your blog.

Now, if you fear the issue of comments, look at moderating the low-quality ones instead of removing them altogether.

WordPress Image Tutorial

I often receive a message from our student why they do not see their images on their frontend design, but backend for the WordPress website.

I wanted to make this quick video to share with you one simple method to show your images. (Please note that this will work only for the WordPress user)

If this method does not work for you, this could be a different reason, https, format, hosting, or etc.

When you install WordPress, Jetpack is one of the plugins comes with it. I personally use Jetpack for many things, so I use it all the time.

It does not matter whether you are using a FREE or PAID version. If you don't see your image on your frontend, YOU CAN TRY DISABLING THE WORDPRESS JETPACK SETTING.

SCRIPT–

Since my baby is sleeping, I will be using the Amazon Polly again for my software review video. If it's uncomfortable to listen, please leave a comment right below, I will try to take some more time to create videos with me speaking on videos.

What is SuperStores?

It's an Affiliate marketing website software that it pulls products from Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, Walmart, and Best buy. Whenever your website visitors purchase through your website, you will get a commission.

It is new to me to see Best Buy and Walmart affiliate sites to this similar software.

I was able to add eBay affiliate link immediately, but others such as Amazon, Aliexpress, Walmart, and Best Buy take about 3 to 4 days to get approval. After I added my eBay affiliate link, I started to add products. You can select 100 products at a time to make them publish.

The speed to add products were faster enough for me not stopping my works. No lacks, and easy.

But, you must create catalog first, and then add products. After I added about 1000 products from eBay, and then I started to add catalog images.

I purchased Front end and upgraded to the Enterprise to get all features as much possible. If you do not purchase the front end and purchase the upgraded version will not able for you to use the basic features. So, make sure to grab the basic, Front end version and to the upgraded versions if you would like.

I saw the similar affiliate sites as if SuperStores. But, I wanted to give it a try because it has an automation feature which is the software will add products automatically, 5 posts max per day. Plus, you do not need to pay any hosting service to add these products. It's a huge plus to expand more products.

When I will be able to add Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy affiliate links, I will add more products and create another video for you. I already contacted the vendor to add some more features. I feel I am sort of became a master to use the Super Stores. When they add anything new to the software, I will also share it with you if you are interested.

Do I need a security WordPress Plugin?

Do I need a security WordPress Plugin?

Do I need a security WordPress Plugin?
Do I need a security WordPress Plugin?

I am not a tech person; I am a designer. So, this article will be 100% based on a personal experience.

(No Commissions, Affiliate Links in this article)

Do I need a security WordPress Plugin?

Do I need a security Plugin for the WordPress Sites?

I thought it would, and it does. When I started to use the WordPress to build my blog sites, I purchased some premium plugins wishing to protect my sites. After a few days of install, I started to see errors and slowness.

So, I contacted the hosting company to ask what's going on to all my sites. They uninstalled all my plugins and started to install one by one to find the issue. Yes, it was a security plugin had a problem.

This plugin was not compatible with other premium plugins and Divi theme. Hm, so I contacted this plugin's vendor. They had some time to check my sites and suggested to uninstall some other plugins that are not compatible with. That solution was very unhelpful because I had to use them for my sites.

This premium security plugin is the amongst expansive and popular. But, it does not work for me…

So, I moved on to the other security plugins that are offering good price and many other seems using them. It also happened the same.

I had a chance to work with so many local website design companies.

They used only one free plugin, Wordfence.

Not a paid version? But, this free one to the business website? I asked why they do not use the premium, popular, expansive plugins?

Hosting company does the scanning. When the real hacker attempts to break your WordPress site, they will.

Since I heard many opinions and real things happening to the sites, I started to think to focus on the backup, not blocking the DDoS or scanning spams by premium plugins.

If you use the SiteGround for your hosting, they will do the backup your sites for you. Everything is a free service.

If you use any other hostings, you can ask your hosting provider if they offer the backup service for you.

Be aware! If you try to use the Fiverr cheap service to back up your site, this may break your site. They may do correctly on light and simple websites, not old and heavy sites. So, in my opinion, to use the Hosting provider service will be best to backup your sites.

One more thing, I received so many promotional emails about the security service or the plugins. DON'T BUY IT even the price is so low or seem a trusted people are promoting it. If it's a JVZOO new software? I would never test it to my business site.

In this article, I will share my experience using the Convertri since their beginning of the launch period.

You can find all the great things about the Convertri on their official website at convertri.com. In this article, you will not find any commission link nor praise to this software. 100% honest story.

Convertri honest review
Convertri honest review

I LEFT CONVERTRI because…

Convertri changes their policy so often without the notice. I purchased their lifetime deal, and they changed the policy and plan. Everything became limited and restricted.

When they first time to offer the sub-accounts plan, they have never mentioned about if the users can do or cannot do the reselling or doing anything to the sub-account, there were no instructions. They always make something and adding to their policy without any notice. I was one of the victims as they added and changed their only rules.

I had their agency plan which I was able to create unlimited sub accounts. I created a website for the website design service and I mentioned that I would provide the Convertri account for them to fix designs or texts. And, Convertri team just terminated my account for it.

What I realized that they will terminate any accounts that are mentioned anything to provide the subaccount. Or, if any users use the word "purchased" "bought" from the main user will also terminate the main account and all sub-accounts. Convertri was just a tool for the website design, not a reselling. Well, they don't care.

I learned a lesson from the convertri team that will not be a long run for them if they want to be a king over their customers.

Overall to the Convertri is a good website builder except for the mobile design.

Once you complete the design with the desktop size, you must spend your time again for the mobile size. Well, it's flexible and customizable, but very annoying sometimes.

For the import pages are working good. But, it's not a 100% bringing the designs. Website speed, Design flexibility, free SSL are great.

For the SEO, I highly suggest to download the Convertri plugin and use the WordPress for the optimization of your site. This way will have much more impact on the SEO.

If you are agreed with their higher monthly rate and create some simple one-page sites for you or your clients will be a perfect choice. But, if I were you, I would not get the Agency plan because it gives the convertri team to watch you and find the chance to terminate your account.

I recently purchased another website design software called XFunnels. I will make another honest review article or video for it after a few weeks of testing.
