top blog commenter awardEvery month we hand out our Top Blog Commenter Awards, celebrating those wonderful people who most often added their insights and contributions to our blog discussions.

We will announce our July 2011 Top Blog Commenter Awards in a moment, but first I would like to answer the question…

“Why Should I be a Top Blog Commenter?”

The Benefits of being a Top Blog Commenter

The plusses and minuses of blog commenting has been the subject of hundreds if not thousands of blog posts lately.  It seems like everyone and his mother has an opinion.

I think by now we are all pretty convinced of the benefits of commenting on the blogs of others, such as inbound links to your site, increased exposure to other blog visitors and building a relationship with blog owners.

But what about these Top Blog Commenter awards that many bloggers are now handing out?  Are they of any use, or just a nice gesture by blog owners to promote more comments on their blog?

I would argue that it’s more than that, although it is a grand gesture, no doubt.

Here are some of the benefits as I see it:

1.  Enhanced Exposure

When you comment on a blog post, your comment can get buried, especially if there are dozens or even hundreds of comments in the string.  But as a Top Commenter, your name and blog gets spotlighted for all to see.  There’s no way for it to be missed.

Look how we spotlighted our Top Blog Commenters in April!  How’s that for additional exposure?

2.  Build a Reputation

We’ve been Top Commenters on the blog of several of our favorite bloggers and because of this, we’ve built a reputation as active and knowledgable bloggers in our niche.  I can’t tell you how many people have contacted us, where the first words are “I saw you were Top Commenters on _______ blog last month.”

It’s like our reputation has preceded us!

3.   Enter the Inner Circle of Top Bloggers

You already know that one of the advantages to blog commenting is to get noticed by the blog owner.  Guess what happens when you win a Top Blog Commenter Award?

You stand out above the rest of the commenters, that’s what.

You see, when you snag one of these awards the blog owner cannot help but take notice and check you out.  He/she may even contact you with some personal words of thanks.

What an amazing way to build a reputation with key bloggers in your niche.

Hopefully we’ve convinced you of the value of being a Top Commenter, so on with our awards!

    Hey Bob, another reason for commenting is to learn! I find I learn and take in information a lot more when I’m leaving a comment or interacting on a blog. Thanks for another great post, picked up a few nuggets from this one as well!

      Hi Hans!

      Glad you found this information useful.

      I can’t tell you how many times my next blog post comes from something I learn on another blog. It certainly is a great way to educate yourself — and it’s free!

      And don’t forget that through blog commenting you form great relationships with other bloggers! That, to me is one of the biggest benefits!

      Thanks for sharing, Atish!

    I want to share my experience of blog commenting here. I have optimized my site under one keyword and when I checked my site,it was on first page and the site on which I have left comment was also on some pages.

    Blog comment award is a marketing strategy and a way to pay back honor to a commentator.

      Hi Jamal — great results!

      It’s like we’ve been preaching — blog commenting is powerful, both from an SEO point and in building successful relationships and potential partnerships.

      Keep going, Jamal!

    Hi, dr Bob,
    congratulations to the winners of July! I think it is great from you to give your top commentators the tribute and present them on your blog, as it’s mutual benefit of traffic, but also respect towards the value of someone’s insights and shared perspectives.
    Your posts are inspiring for many bloggers, so its no wonder that there are so many commentators sharing the place for the best one.

    Hi Bob ~ I certainly agree with you when you say that commenting on others blogs makes a huge difference. We could all stand to enhance our reputations and make better connections with all the great bloggers out there. I have experienced better exposure to my own blog by making comments to lots of blogs. And I try to read as many as I can each week. Thanks for a great post.

    Oh Dr. Bob..(and Rosemary) Thanks so MUCH for mentioning me on your blog. I am thrilled that I was a top commentator. I didn’t realize how often I have enjoyed visiting and following your wonderful advice and experiences.

    Thanks so much for your kind words… although I do have one question: “I’m not THAT old… am I?” LOL ha ha… “Old, very wise friend” LOL

    I feel like I should have glasses perched on the end of my nose… and look like an owl! (Pulling your leg).

    Back to my serious note… I am so honored to have met you… and so pleased I get to rub shoulders with you on an almost daily basis!

    Thanks so much for sharing all your advice.

    Have a wonderful week adjusting to your work routine after your short semi-break!
