Feeling (and sharing) the Luv!
(This is the 2nd in a Series of 3 About Bloghopping)
Introducing Yourself to New Friends
When you visit other blogs that share a similar niche as yours, there are many advantages to be gained:
- Make new friends that could be future Joint Venture partners
- Create familiarity with your own name/brand
- Connect with possible new readers of your own blog posts
- Help with building new traffic to your blog
There is a popular plugin that you can easily install, that will greatly increase the effectiveness of your blog hopping efforts. There is a free version available that is becoming extremely popular because it really works.
When you install the plugin to your blog, it encourages visitors to leave a comment on your post by enabling a titled link back to their own site to their latest post. When you leave a comment on others’ blog posts, it will also add a link back to your post if you fill in your URL in the information box on their “leave comment” section. This is assuming they have CommentLuv installed on their blog, also.
Use CommentLuv For Free
There is also a paid version of CommentLuv that has some other advantages, but I recommend using the free version (that works great!) for a while, and decide later if the additional features in the paid version would be worth investing in
You can download the free version of CommentLuv HERE.
You can also go to “plugins” on your dashboard and search for “CommentLuv” in “add new plugin”.
In the next and final post of this series on Blog Hopping, we will talk about how you can use it to build comments and readers on your blog posts.
