With more people comment on your blog, the more traffic you will get. Regular commentator will do good on your blog. To encourage comments, you must “give” something to your visitor in return. It is backlink. You can use plugin for your wordpress to encourage comments. Here are my top plugin:
- Improved anchor text (KeywordLuv): This plugin will separate commentator name from their keywords in the link to their website, giving them improved anchor text.
- Show Top Commentators: This Plugin will shows top commentator. Usually you will put this on your sidabar so that commentator will gain backlink from your home page. You should disable the nofollow tag to lure more commentators.
- Subscribe to Comments: This plugin allows commentator to get e-mail notification if there is any new comments. When they read the email and are interested, they will come back and comment more.
