When the topic of getting blog comments for SEO comes up, your first thought would probably be to get links to your site by commenting on other blogs.
Well, I usually don’t waste my time with that technique, because most comment links are no-follow anyway.
And I want to bring focus to the comments on my own blog.
Having user-generated content on your site has always been an easy way to gain search engine traffic from long-tail keyword queries. Comments are a good source of user-generated content containing those keyword phrases.
For the last two years, I’ve been conducting SEO experiments for all types of websites, ranging from my blogs to local business directories, and I have found that user-generated content from the comments section in my health blogs has increased my traffic tremendously.
