You’ve heard the advice a million times.
Write great comments on popular blogs, and your blog will grow. Why, it’s so easy even a caveman can do it!
And it’s true — comments can be powerful. A great comment can land you on the radar of a popular blogger — the kind of super-connected influencer who can accelerate your success.
It sounds so simple.
The only problem?
Nobody tells you how to comment on blogs. You aren’t sure what a great comment looks like.
Is it a comment that shovels heaps of praise onto the author? Or one that argues a persuasive alternative view? Or one that simply thanks the blogger for their insights?
Because while many experts preach the virtues of strategic commenting, almost nobody tells you how to do it.
As a result, many well-intentioned bloggers are spending their precious time writing comments they think are great.
Their comments usually suck.
