My blog is only 22 posts old but I already get close to 100 comments on most of the articles I write. recently wrote about how to increase conversions and got over 250 comments in about six hours. So why is my blog getting so many comments? And more importantly, what can you do to replicate the commenting frenzy on your own blog? Why comments matter. The first thing I want to talk about is why comments are important to a blog. Blog comments are a sign that your community is healthy and functional. How I get people to comment. Tricky huh?

m sure you’ve heard well-reasoned, logical arguments for why you should be commenting on blogs: “You can be a part of the conversation happening out there.”. But, while there may be a burned, unpopped kernel of truth in these statements, none of them take into account the many reasons you should never comment on a blog. First of all, you shouldn’t even begin to think about commenting unless you have something really profound to say. There is no room for mere opinions in the comment section of a blog.
