The best indication of whether a blog is successful or not isn’t the number of comments people leave, but in the analytics data. In particular the length of time users spend on the page and number of page views.

There are a number of good reasons to comment on blogs. The top 5 reasons are as follows:
1. Commenting on blogs gets you noticed and boosts your profile in social media communities.
2. Commenting increases brand exposure.
3. Commenting redirects traffic to your blog, website or other campaign.
4. Commenting provides links to your blog or website that help with SEO (search Engine Optimisation).
5. Commenting enhances the value of the post and contributes to the knowledge of the group.
It’s not necessary for comments to be long winded. One or two sentences can be enough.
