Post Comments on Other Blogs
Posting comments on other people’s blogs is one of the great ways to let other webmasters and bloggers know about your blog. To do this, simply search and go to other blogs related to the theme of your website or blog.
Look and read through their blog posts and post smart comment(s) where necessary. Your comments do not have to be long paragraphs, even one or two sentences will do, so as long as they are constructive and pleasant.
Type in your blog/website URL (for webmasters and readers of that blog to follow the link back to your blog) if there is a section for you to do so. But do not include an affiliate link (if your blog is promoting an affiliate product) as most webmasters do not allow affiliate URLs and consider it spam. Use only your own blog or website links (e.g. ‘http://yourblog.blogspot.com’ or ‘http://www.yoursite.com’).
