As time flies by more and more energy is being put into making things work out fine your way, yet no positive changes in amount of daily unique visitors. And you start to explore different strategies, tactic and just about any means you could think of to improve the level of visit and engagements.

Professional blogging consist of countless daily task, and combine it with blog commenting for blog marketing can be an overwhelming task if not done with proper efficiency. You’ll need to work “smart” and not “hard” in your blog commenting campaign for marketing your blog.
Here are Five effective blog commenting Strategies to save you time and energy.
1. Comment on Popular Targeted Blogs.
Except that you’re not commenting to market your blog and drive targeted traffic back to your blog post; one of the very basic fact that makes blog commenting a success is relevancy.
The blogs you comments on will determine your success. Be picky on blogs you reads and comments on. If you’re in the health related niche and you’re mostly commenting on blogging tips blogs you’re not going to get the best out of your commenting efforts.
See blog commenting as a “micro” or “mini” guest blogging campaign. You’re contributing to other blogs content by sharing your experiences and valuable thought with their readers community.
There is no way your guest post on health topics will be accepted on blogging tips blogs; the moments you start seeing your blog commenting strategy in this way the better.
2. Subscribe to Blog Updates.
Once you discover relevant blogs to regularly reads and comments on, your next line of action is to subscribe to their rss newsletter. This way you can be rest assured of getting notifications once the blogs updates with fresh content.

3. Be the early bird.
Driving targeted traffic and boosting blog engagement through blog commenting is just like trying to drive traffic through the search engine.
Once you miss out on the first page of SERP, that’s it! You’re not there and nobody care to look at the next page. Try be among the “first five” to read and leave remarkable comments on the post.
It makes whole lots of difference when your comments is an excellent one and is seen by mostly all others who leave comments on the post.
This is why I suggest above that you subscribe to your favorites blogs rss feeds, so you get an instant notification once the blogs hit publish buttons.
4. Reply to Other Comments.
I used this strategy a lot and has proved to be effective as described.
And apart from the fact that it help drive free targeted traffic to your blog, it also help in building friendship, establish relationship, networking and establish you as an expert in your field.
But don’t abuse this strategy by trying to reply to every other comments that is left on the post. Do this when someone might have ask a question and it happens that the blog owner hasn’t reply and no one has supply the answers. If you’re confident and feel you know what the answer is, then take the chance.
It is a great way to show case your talent to a larger community and build your portfolio as a professional blogger.
5. Content Is King.
It doesn’t matter where, how, when or what you’re writing online, always focus on giving out your best shot.
Either you’re engaging in forum discussions, social media status updates, blog comments, article writing, blog post, etc. Always provide quality content. Remember, someone somewhere is reading your content and your name has been attached to your content.
There we have it!
