As part of you managing your WordPress website or blog, it’s just as important to manage your Comments section as it is securing and backing up your website regularly. Why? Because managing your site the right way can improve the success of traffic-generating tactics you put into your site daily or weekly.
One of these traffic generating tactics is managing comments you receive on your blog posts. Hopefully you have opened up your posts to receive comments or replies and you haven’t made it inconspicuous to find the comment box. The challenge that most people have in leaving or receiving comments is asking them to log into either WordPress.com or Google.com to leave a comment. I’ve had to experience this lately when I was participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I definitely like leaving comments, but I don’t like it when someone cannot get comments on their blog because they have made it hard to do so. They are leaving themselves in a position that they may never receive traffic when someone leaves a comment on a blog they have posted.
Not only that, when you have a comment audience on a particular article, they are engaging in a conversation that really resonates with your blog reader. Your written expertise + comments and questions from your readers = a trust in what you offer in your business. Do you get the gist here?
If your blog is powered by WordPress, you can locate your Comments section on the left side of your navigation dashboard. Here is a screenshot of my Comments section and you will notice I have one comment waiting to be reviewed.
Check out this short video tour of the Comments section of my blog and start paying attention to your own comments if you are receiving them. And I hope you do!
I always welcome comments and questions on my own blog, so feel free to leave a reply or ask a question. I will be happy to answer you back!
