3. Ask a Question

Asking a question towards the end of your posts is widely used and very effective technique for encouraging comments. Asking a specific question encourages readers to answer through comments. See example below: (4)

4. Make it Easy

Let’s take an example. One of the most commented-on posts on Copyblogger, is a post on “38 Critical Books Every Blogger Needs to Read”. At the end of the post, the author asks people to list any books they love, and would add to the list. This worked so well because everyone has a favourite book, and simply listing the book in a comment requires no effort (as opposed to answering a question that takes more time and thought). In other words, the author made it very easy to comment.

5. Reply to Your Comments

Interacting with readers who comment is a great way to build conversation and discussion around your topic. It also contributes to the content of the page whilst allowing you to connect and engage with your readers. It also lets your readers feel appreciated and builds a sense of community.

6. Offering an Incentive

Offering a reward for commenting on your blog is another great way to encourage readers to comment. You can offer a fee e-book or resource to those who leave their first comment. Or you can feature them on the top commentators’ widget on your homepage.

See image of top commentator’s widget below.
