When I started my first blog over six years ago, one of the challenges I faced was finding ways to get people to leave comments on my blog posts.
When you’ve taken the time to write a blog post, it’s only natural that you’ll want to receive feedback on what you have written.
How Do They Get So Many Comments?
Have you ever seen a blog and wondered how the blogger consistently received comments on their posts?
In this post, I’m sharing with you the method some bloggers use to get more comments on their posts.
But before we get into it, I’m sure you’ve heard about the importance of writing helpful content, building relationships, asking questions within your posts, etc. as ways to receive more blog comments.
Yes, all of these things are important, and are methods I highly recommend. However, in this post I won’t be focusing on those methods.
In this post, I’ll be telling you how that brand new blogger receives comments on every single blog post they write, while you’ve been blogging for months, if not years, and are lucky if you get one comment.
How to Get More Comments on Your Blog
The secret to getting more comments on your blog is to share your posts in Facebook share groups.
Not all Facebook groups allow you to promote your content. If your goal is to receive more blog comments, you’ll want to make sure you’re joining Facebook share groups. These groups typically have schedules for sharing your content.
For example, Monday could be for promoting your social media accounts, Tuesday for sharing your latest blog post, and so on.
The Blogger Life Facebook Group
The posts you want to look out for in these share groups are the posts that allow you to leave a comment with a link to a blog post that you want comments on.
In these threads, bloggers support one another by visiting the links placed within the thread, and leaving comments on the posts as requested.
Depending on the rules for the group, you’ll either return the favor to those who left a comment on your blog, or you’ll choose from a few blogs within the thread to comment on.
I have participated in Facebook share groups, and can tell you that if it’s your goal to increase your comments, you’ll definitely be able to do that by participating in these groups.
I haven’t participated in share threads enough to say if any additional benefits are received from sharing your content this way (such as building genuine relationships), however, I have noticed that when people see that others are commenting on your blog, it makes them more likely comment.
Also, I’ve heard of blog posts going viral after being shared in Facebook groups. So, I do see the potential benefit in participating in share groups.
