Your blog’s commenting system plays a vital role, for not getting much comments for your blog posts!
Even the opposite situation is also true. Means, a good blog commenting system also helps you to get more comments for each of your blog posts.
I know, you have already thought it several times that, why your posts are not getting much (or any) comments at all?
Are the posts really not up to the mark? Because, you have written some really well thought, engaging & informative articles, but why these are not attracting any comments?
May be you are not getting the main reason behind it! May be the problem is not at all related to the quality of your article and it’s related to a totally different thing.
What? Yes, the problem maybe related to the commenting system, that you are using in your blog.
There can be many reason behind this, but having a great commenting system on your blog can increase the chance of getting comments to a great extent.
You know, what is the foremost reason behind why people don’t comment or avoid commenting? Because, it’s a time taking matter.
Sometimes you may find that, some of your readers are feeling really engaged with a certain post but, after reading it, instead of commenting by feeling up the form, they simply share it to their social media channels with some feedback.
Sharing on social media has some great benefits & impacts, I am not telling anything on that.
But, have you ever thought, why readers are not commenting, although they are engaged with your content, liked it & shared it in social media channels?
The reason is “TIME”. In most of the cases blog commenting is a time-consuming matter. You have to give your name, email, website and then the real thing.
So time is a big factor, for which most of time people avoid commenting. Because, they feel again I have to fill those data before leaving a comment.
& that’s where you have to look for an alternative commenting system over traditional ones. Don’t worry, there are many freemium & premium 3rd party commenting systems available.
Because in traditional commenting system, you have to feel up all the above mentioned fields every time but for these popular 3rd party commenting systems, the overall process is much more integrated. How?
For an example, you can have a look at this blog. Here you will find, for ease of blog commenting and for many other benefits, I am using a great 3rd party commenting system called Disqus.
Using this system you can leave comment (s) on this blog in 4 different ways. The first option is if you have a Disqus account, using that.
If you don’t have a Disqus account don’t worry because creating one is really simple. From commenting section you can easily create your account for future benefits.
Means, whichever blog has this commenting system integrated, you can comment over there without further delay or lengthy form fill up. So, Commenting will become a one step process if you have an account in Disqus.
Let’s say you don’t want to create an account for any reason. Then also there is a beautiful alternative solution. What is that?
Now a days, we all have social media profiles, may not be in every platform, but in the most common ones. Like, in Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc.
So, if you have your account in any one of these three social media platform, you can easily comment through Disqus using any of these accounts.
The most intriguing factor is, once you connect your any of the above mentioned social media account with Disqus, then whenever you are logged in you can leave a comment through this commenting system.
There are many popular Commenting systems like Disqus, so choose one thoughtfully based on your need, integrate it & find the difference.
The major benefits of using these commenting systems are, these make the commenting process less time taken, easier & simpler.
