commentLuvIn order to gauge how healthy your blog is, there should be more than a couple of comments in each and every post. It should not be just any comment but it is important that the comment is related to the topic where the comment is left (this means that your article was read by the visitor). Why, because there are some blog hoppers who will simply leave a comment about anything under the sun and have nothing to do with your post just to simply advertise their website.  Leaving a comment practically gives a commenter a chance to show a link back to his/her website to encourage more visitors.

Let us face the fact that that is one of the reasons why comments are left to your blog post. Aside from the decent percentage of those who really want to read you blog because they get entertained or they really need the information you give, a large number of blog commenter do simply comment as a way of free advertising.  The more traffic your site have, the better chance they get someone to click going to their blog.

Given this scenario, I believe that blog commenter’s should still be rewarded to get a chance to showcase their website to other visitors. Anyway, this is vital to all bloggers. Even yourself, would like to have someone visit your website and comment about your posts. This encourage every to hop from one website to another, giving everyone a chance to be visited and at the same time enriches the knowledge of those who blog hop. How? Well, reading stimulates knowledge.

If you want everything I mentioned on top, I think it’s time I introduce you to Commentluv.  This pretty little tool, allows you to get more traffic, encourage readers to comment about your posts, and its gives you more chance of getting back links for the benefit of your website, at least to your latest post. If you leave a comment to a Commentluv enabled blog or website, you get a chance to add a link going back to your site. This actually allows one to give a brand to their website and to increase its visibility.

Reasons why CommentLuv is important for commenters

Backlink rewards
Sites is branded and becomes visible
More networks
Establish a link building campaign

Reasons why CommentLuv is important for website owners

More chances of getting links to blogs with similar niche as yours. Search Engine loves this
Very easy to install

Keywordluv comes along with Commentluv, so you should know this as well. Having a Keywordluv plugin also allows your blog to have an edge in getting comments. Many commenters love to showcase their anchor texts. So with Keywordluv, instead of leaving comments that looks like “example @ the best example”, this will look like “example from the best example”. Doing this actually allows the website to rank well with their keyword on the search engines therefore it brings more traffic.

    I actually using this plugin in some of my sites. Now I remember that I need to update my other blogs and will use Commenluv.

      Good luck Divine,

    I think it is really useful because I personally like commenting on blogs with CommentLuv. But some sites have versions that are no longer supported asking them to upgrade to premium. Hmmmm.

    • February 11, 2012 at 10:27 am

      I guess those sites have not updated their versions

  3. February 11, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I love commentluv and the developer is very reactive in sorting things out if there is a hiccup. It’s a plugin well worth getting.

    • February 11, 2012 at 3:08 pm

      True, Andy is really finding ways to make the plugin very useful to all of its users, not even on the premium one but also the the free version

    Hi Herbert,
    I really love commentluv, it’s one of the best plugins that every blog should have (especially if it’s a new one). It really helps to get more comments on your blog and of course commenting on commentluv enabled blogs is a great way to get traffic and backlinks…

    • February 11, 2012 at 3:09 pm

      You are truly right Kostas.

  5. February 11, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    I have been using Commentluv for many years now, and I can say, it rewards great. I also love the fact that this plugin is by far, the most active when it comes to discovering new developments. You can see it by the frequency it requires you to update. Commentluv is really a must-have plugin.

    • February 11, 2012 at 3:11 pm

      Yes Dimaks, especially if you are using the premium one, you get most out of the plugin

  6. February 11, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    I think readers and commenters become more inspired and feel more rewarded when we see a link back to our posts with CommentLuv so when I blog hop, I usually put on top of my list those blogs that has that. haha

    • February 11, 2012 at 3:12 pm

      Am I on that list Jonha?

  7. February 11, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    Hmm I must look into this! i had not even thought of using Commentluv, but now I see it is a Great tool! Thank You!

    • February 17, 2012 at 3:12 am

      You are right there Chris

  15. February 17, 2012 at 7:12 am

    I began to follow some comluv blogs which haven’t only nurtured my knowledge but everytime I comment or suggest something, I’m rewarded with a link.

    • February 29, 2012 at 6:30 am

      Yes Dooley, a reward is given every time you made a comment to commentluv blogs

  16. February 28, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    HI Herbert,
    I am using this plugin on my website and it improves my traffic too.I think that may be possible because bloggers are trying to post comment on the post they like,so they are searching for the topic on our website by navigating from one to another page.
    This way we can generate more pageviews as well as better relationship with other bloggers.
    Nice information,Thanks for sharing.

    • February 29, 2012 at 6:54 am

      You are truly right Bhavesh 😀

  17. February 29, 2012 at 4:58 am

    CommentLuv provides better feature to encourage commenter to comment and offer a backlink. This is very helpful to increase the traffic and popularity of your blog.

    • February 29, 2012 at 6:54 am

      Yes Sir thats true. Thanks

  18. March 6, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    you are right,because it helps alot to generate traffic and also helpful in seo.

  19. March 13, 2012 at 1:44 am

    I am using this commenting system because I believe through this I am able to fish quality back links necessary for my site and I think this notion is really a big help to fully understand this process.

  20. March 19, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Commentluv is best plugin for WordPress blogs . CommentLuv Premium plugin provides a simple way to increase comments, and social sharing of your blog posts, plus other great features included in the CommentLuv Premium version.

  21. March 24, 2012 at 3:46 am

    What is nice about it is people come to your blog and leave valid posts rather then trying to spam makes for a better link trading type of experience.

  22. March 26, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    This two plugins CommentLuv and KeywordLuv is best for getting tons of comments and connections.

    Though I have not yet installed them at my blog, but I am seriously thinking of doing it.

    Could you please let me know if this effect our SEO?

  23. March 28, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    Definitely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. I tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and explained out everything without complication. Maybe, people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.#

    An easy but concise explanation! You are correct, there are who comment just to advertise their links. But as bloggers we need it for our traffic though.

    I’m still working out ways to easily find other bloggers who use commentluv with similar interests and content to myself (design etc). I understand that this plugin should help build a friendly community between bloggers, but I do feel that should have some kind of member / site directory as part of its structure. That way its easier to find the type of articles you wish to read or truly have interest in. Instead, we have compiled lists that people have put together instead, (and PR’ed).
    The main risk I see with this is that people may be tempted to just add comments to commentluv enabled blogs with little regard to the content of the article, just to get those links back to their own content. Particularly those with high PR. Is this not, in some ways, a form of spam also? I’ll continue to use this plugin for now, but I feel there needs to be an easier way to look for content specific blogs who also use Comluv.

  26. April 22, 2012 at 6:20 am

    Honestly, one of the reason why i wonder around in internet is to find information. While the reason why i have to comment is to ask question

    But sometimes, have a back-link reward is not too bad 😉

  27. May 3, 2012 at 3:47 am

    Hello Herbert!!!You did a great job!!!!Your blog will help new commenter like us.I am the one who benefited by your article.Moreover I have gotten some important tips on Comluv.Thank you.

  28. May 14, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    Building traffic with commentluv blog comments works great. Andy Bailey is a genius for creating this plugin.

  29. May 22, 2012 at 8:00 am

    CL and KL do give great rewards to commenters, that’s why every commenter should show appreciation to the blog owner by leaving comments that add meaning to the discussion :)

  30. June 27, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    I’ll try to use this instead of wordpress native commenting system ! i made few follow blogs but i increased the number of spammers only.

  31. June 30, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    I just started using comment luv and am very impressed with it so far. Is there a way to find other blogs that are running comment luv?

  32. July 18, 2012 at 5:26 am

    That way its easier to find the type of articles you wish to read or truly have interest in. Instead, we have compiled lists that people have put together instead, (and PR’ed).

  33. July 20, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    Oh My God! The number of comments posted to this article made me to post a comment here. This shows the interest of your readers to the article of yours. I am considering to use Commentluv on my blogs
