4 things not to do when blog commenting

Allowing comments to be entered on a blog post is like willingly leaving the front door to the house open and taking a chance on the assortment of people entering. Some people will be respectful, some may want more from the homeowner, and others will trash the place. Which type of blog commenter are you?
Blog commenting can be a fun way to meet other people who share similar interests, acquire new followers and friends, and to get an array of feedback on posts. Plenty of useful comments is an indicator of a popular post and that can lead to a higher position in the search engines.
Writing comments takes time, so if you’re paying someone to post blog comments for you, make sure they do quality work, as unapproved comments provide no benefit to you and waste money. Request references and samples of their work and insist that all comments must add value. If you’re hiring someone from another country, make sure they are able to form complete sentences that are grammatically correct as anything less hints of spammy backlining for internet marketing purposes.
If a blog owner is generous enough to allow comments to be posted, make sure to follow some general etiquette guidelines. As a blog owner myself, I will delete any comments that fall into these categories.
1. Don’t Be a Cheerleader
"Great article."
"I couldn’t have said it better myself."
"I enjoyed reading this."
"Useful information."
The kudos are appreciated, but comments like that don’t tell the blog owner or readers what was great about it. If the article didn’t provide useful content, chances are it wouldn’t have been posted it in the first place. Readers want information and solutions without having to scroll through repetitive comments.
2. Bad Time Management
"I need to follow up on this."
"I bookmarked this to read more."
"I’ll come back later."
Seriously, no one cares about other peoples’ time management issues if they can’t read the post now, or that someone bookmarked the post for later viewing. A blog owner is guilty of self-spamming by approving such useless comments.
3. Don’t be a Copy Cat
Do not copy and paste text from the post and call it your comment unless you are going to provide additional information in relation to it.
4. Don’t Advertise
This goes without saying, but people still do it. Do not blatantly paste your ad copy into the comment.
All of the above no-no’s have one common thread. The commenter wants the backlink to their own site, but has they nothing useful to say.
If you want a near 100% approval acceptance on your comments, you’ve got to be charitable with your comments. The blog owner was nice enough to open comments, so be nice enough to leave something worthwhile and useful. Let the author know how helpful the information was by briefly explaining how it benefitted you or how you implemented it. Offer supplementary or new information, but keep it related to the post. If you have an opposing perspective, always be polite and be sure to explain your point of view so readers can “walk in your shoes”.
