I know how discouraging it would be if your blog getting no comments or less comments. How to get them as quick as possible then?
Reasons for not getting comments in your blog is -
1. You don’t have compelling content:
Be it a newbie blog or which is started few months ago the main reason you don’t get much comments (or the reason for getting 0 comments in most of your blog posts) is you don’t have the content with the following features:
- It’s not interesting – if your content is not interesting then there is no reason your readers to comment on it. So try to create READABLE content in your blog.
- It’s not useful – why should your readers comment if your post is not worthy? Try to add value to post and try to know who is your readers & their problems. Solve their problems in your posts.
It’s not grabbing your readers attention: You are not making your readers Your content should be appealing. The best tip to make it appealing is – write catchy headlines to your blog posts, and better format your posts.
2. You are not commenting on other blogs:
How do you expect comments from others if you are not commenting on theirs. You are not a problogger yet to publish a post and leave that alone. Even the probloggers worked hard in the beginning to get comments on their blog(s) by commenting on other blogs.
Try to leave at least 10 comments a day. Make your comments worthy don’t use one liners in your comments. Suggest them, question them or be controversial!
And expand your comments to get noticed by asking question at the end of your comment – this is the best tip to expand your conversation.
3 a. You don’t have a call to action at the end of your posts to get more comments:
This is the most essential thing and most common mistake that many bloggers are doing in their posts by not having a call to action.
Call to action simply means – ask your readers to comment them or ask them how this post helped you.
Ex: I will make a call to action at the end of this post ;)
3 b. Publish less content:
It may look strange but its the best way to go if you want more comments in your blog posts – publish less. If you update more often then the chances of getting comments will be less, don’t you agree?
Make a blog schedule post twice/thrice a week. Post quality content. If you still got time then start guest posting on other blogs and grow your network, traffic and backlinks in the remaining days.
Note: This point may seems to be foolish but know what you want to get in your blog. Is it updating daily or getting more comments?
Simple… If you want more comments then you need to focus on more quality content creation with call to action at the end and publish less.

Over to you:
Do you believe that getting less or zero comments in a blog is just because they are updating so often? Or with lack of quality content or call to action?
