Since I’ve added CommentLuvÂ to my WordPress blogs I’ve seen a 50% increase in my blog traffic.
Go ahead look at some of my blogs from a few years ago. Â Sadly I was hearing crickets.
OK, so I get more comments but what’s really the best thing about the Commentluv plugin?
ItÂ encourages engagement!
If your blog is anything it should be engaging. Â That’s how you build relationships with your readers.
Getting worthless blog comments like “your blog is so awesome“, “thanks for posting” or Â comments that don’t at all relate to the post, isn’t engagement. That’s just bloggers using your blog to benefit them.
That’s why I love CommentLuv. It helps eliminate worthless commenting that doesn’t do a thing for building relationships, trust or engagement, which is ultimatelyÂ how you increase traffic, improve your rankings and ultimately get more sales.
Granted, there are lots of ways to establish great relationships and build trust without using CommentLuv but CommetluvÂ was a logical starting point for me. Â It brought serious bloggers to my posts which was a huge step up from the poor comment quality I had previously.
But that’s just the tip of the CommentLuv iceberg.
Here are 10 more things CommentLuvÂ does that has brought some outstanding people into my life, helped me learn new things, find traffic, crush spam, build blog engagement, and so much more.
10 Reasons To Put CommentLuv To Work For Your Blog
1. Commentluv ENCOURAGESÂ Commenting
People that leave thoughtful comments on your blog are rewarded with a backlink to their own blog. That encourages more comments, not only from loyal commenters but others as well.
For you most loyal commenters you canÂ customize the CommentLuv plugin to allow commenters to choose a blog post they link back to or you can allow a link back to only their last post. Â How you set this up is your choice.
2. Regular commenters enjoy KEYWORD BENEFITS
You can customize CommentLuv to include 2 or 3 keywords in the commenting name field where the keywords are used as anchor text of their link. This use to be the part of a separate plugin offered by Andy Baily known as CommentLuv but Andy now incorporates it withing the CommentLuv premium plugin.
For Bloggers that love the keyword anchor text, this is another awesome benefit for them.
3. CommentLuv CRUSHES BOT SPAM with G.A.S.P.
The GrowMap Anti-Spambot Plug-in or G.A.S.P plugin has beenÂ incorporated into CommentLuv which I think is one of the best anti-spam plugins available for WordPress.
4. CommentLuv PROMOTESÂ your Blog Posts
When you own ConmentLuv and then comments on other blogs there will be a heart just to the right of your comment with a little ‘info panel’ that pops up when you hover over it with info about you and other posts you’ve written. Â Anyone reading through comments on that post will see your information and what you blog about.
Another great way for others to find out about YOU.
5. CommentLuv Gives your BLOG RECOGNITION
With all this recognition that CommentLuv exposed me toÂ I am getting requests to guest post on other blogs. Bloggers have invited me to guest blog because they noticed the high engagement on my blog.
I use to have to hunt down blogs to guest post on, now bloggers come to me. Â I can thank CommentLuv for that!
6. CommentLuvÂ LINKS TO TWITTER
CommentLuv gives you the option to have your commenters Twitter handle displayed beside their comments. Another reason to get visitors to comment. Â This little feature actually encourages quality comments and helps your commenters grow followers. Â Who doesn’t appreciate that?
7. CommetLuv comes with BUILT-IN-STATS
There’s a built in dashboard widget that breaks down visits brought to your posts from other sites you’ve commented using commentLuv so you can see at a glance which sites and which post are bringing you traffic. That’s a great feature because it lets you see where your traffic is coming from so you can comment there more.
8. CommentLuv Has A TOP COMMENTERS WIDGET
Talk about offering commenters incentives. Top commenters on you blog get their smiling face as a top commenter posted in the side bar of your blog. That means they’re on every page of your blog. Â Talk about exposure for your commenters. If that’s not incentive to get people to comment on your blog, I don’t know what is.
9. REPLYMEÂ Function
CommentLuv will sendÂ a personalized email to each commenter when they get a direct reply to their comment.
So for example if I respond to a commenter they will automatically see my comment in their email in-box. Â Also if one of your guest post authors receives an email when someone makes a comment on their guest post they will get an email that they have a new comment on the post. Â Another excellent way to build close relationships with not only commenters but guest post bloggers. Â If you use this function to ask questions your bloggers will comment even more. This is engagement at its best.
10. CommentLuv is highly customizeable
There are 5 parts to the CommentLuv plugin. Â The commentLuv basic functions, Enable Twitter Functions, GASP functions, keyword name settings, and the Replyme functions. Each function takes only a few minutes to set up, and if you need help with any of it Andy Baily, the author of CommentLuv has video instructions for each portion of your setup. Easy peasy!
I’m a proud CommentLuv affiliate. When I purchase a product, use it and reap as many benefits as I have with CommentLuv, I want to be part of that.
But I also want to be up front with by letting you know that if you purchase CommetLuv through my affiliate link I receive an affiliate payment. Of course there’s no additional cost to you, however I’d be so grateful for your patronage
But there’s a benefit for you as well. If you purchase, use and endorse commentLuv I encourage you to join the affiliate program too. It’s easy and free to join and it only takes a few affiliate sales and you’ve paid for the product.
And if for some reason you don’t want to keep CommentLuv, there’s a complete money back guarantee. I don’t ever buy without a guarantee and you shouldn’t either.
Regardless of whether you use my link or not I think you get my message about the value of using quality tools. With almost 100,000 bloggers using CommentLuv to socialize and viralize their blog posts, it’s been my experience that the benefits far outweigh the cost. Â Â Not many products can live up to that claim.
Do you use CommentLuv? Â If so what are your thoughts?
