Blog Comments - How Will You Get Them Outside WA?
Several months ago, I was discussing with a friend the possibility of canceling my account here. The reason is, my marketing funnel now offers blog hosting and it looks like having two blog hosts would be a redundancy.
Guess what prevented me from leaving?
It's the blog comments.
"How will I get them outside WA?", that's the question that lingered my mind while thinking over the decision. They don't have a system like WA's Site Comments!
Easy Blog Comments Here
When your blog is hosted outside WA platform, you are on your own.
Yes, they can be cheaper than ours here. They can also guarantee you fast-loading websites for you to be liked by Google. And they can also offer tight security like ours.
But when it comes to getting blog comments?
You have to be super good at writing content.
If you are a mediocre writer, or you're just a beginner with "not yet developed" blogging skills and not yet popular, you will find yourself alone in this Internet space.
Oppositely, here in Wealthy Affiliate, I see beginners with not yet developed writing skills get comments for up to 20 comments per blog post. Thanks to our Site Comments platform!
Ways To Get Blog Comments Outside WA
Like I said, it is still possible to get comments if you're hosted outside WA. These are some ways to get them:
- Ask your friends and relatives to comment on your blog posts
- Become super good at writing content so you get comments from legit readers
- Join Facebook groups created for blog posts syndication
- Open your blog commenting system to spammers
To me, it's only #2 that I like. Others, forget them.
I remember, prior to discovering WA I was already blogging for the MLM niche.
The way to get comments then was to join blog post syndication groups in Facebook, give comments to 3 blog posts before you can request those 3 people to give comments to yours.
Oftentimes, not all of them reciprocates.
Then, I'll check the comments Que to find spam comments to edit and make them look like legit. (Yes, you can edit them and disable the spam links)
But all of them are nothing compared to what we have here in Wealthy Affiliate!
WA's Site Comments
Here, you just give 2 comments to generate the credit needed for requesting 1 comment.
The system requires the person commenting to really read the blog post or else the comment that will be screened out will not pass through our system's strict "uniqueness verification" method.
Truly legit comments.
And like I said, just give 2 comments and you'll get 1 in return via your credits. It's super easy to have people commenting on your blog posts.
When you have all these, how can you leave for other platforms?
Why Comments Are So Important To Me?
Prior to joining WA, I was browsing the websites of those critical to the MLM niche. One is the site of Nathaniel, and the other one is the site operated by writer named Oz.
I looked at them with awe and wonder, "How the heck these guys are getting all those comments? There are too many comments!"
I wished they vanish from the face of the Earth as they are doing damage to my niche. But Google loves them, giving them favor on the top spots for every search results related to MLM.
One of the reasons?
It looks like a lot of people love commenting on their blogs!
When I became a member of WA, I later learned that blog comments are integral part of getting ranked high particularly in Google's SERPs.
Because I Can't Leave, I'll Stay
Several times I pondered on leaving for the reasons that I can now blog using the bonus blogging platform offered by my marketing funnel and this community is critical to my niche (MLM).
But I can't because, I don't know of a substitute to our Site Comments here.
So, I decided to just stay and work around the negative comments I'm receiving via Site Comments from fellow WA members critical to MLM.
The need for blog comments supersedes my irritation of the pesky WA members who, in spite of every explanation I make, that there's a difference between a pyramid and a legit MLM, still keeps on giving me negative comments.
I can work around that problem and just edit them to my liking.
What matters most is, this system is really helpful in getting blog posts to rank by having them lots of comments, I can't find another system that's so close to this.
So, that got me stayed.
