Tip #14 – Become a Top Commentator Wherever You Can

One of the best plugins available for any CMS is the Top Commentator plugin. Blogs that use this plugin give a free link to readers who comment frequently on their blogs.

While you do not want to comment spam someones blog, you DEFINATELY want to post substantive, thoughtful comments as often as possible to get on this list – Especially if the blog with the Top commentator plugin is a highly ranked blog.

If you manage to get on the Top Commentator list, every time the blog owner posts, Technorati is sent a ping telling it that the blogger is linking to you. A single placement on one of these lists can catapult your ranking thousands of places in mere hours, so it is definitely worth the work.

For example, if you are in my top commentator list you would have received 24 pings in the past 24 hours! So what are you waiting for? Make some comments right here on the 20,300th blog on the Internet and begin to raise your rank now!

    Its a great way to reward your blog readers and commentators.

    Offering Top Commenter option on your sidebar is a great way to encourage others to comment on your site. However, it is only plays a part towards the whole picture. On my site, I quickly identify some key elements to my readers:

    One: What is the site about?
    Two: Who visits here?
    Three: What are their opinions about the site/content?
    Four: How often do they comment/visit?

    To achieve this, there are tools, plugins, and manual code I write into my sidebars to give this information up front and quickly.

    I definitely agree with that! Becoming a top commentator is a great way to move up the ranks in Technorati.
