I see people ask this question all to often on websites that I frequent, so I decided to put together a few tips and ideas on how to get more comments on your blog. Feel free to add your own in the comments section, if they are good I will add them to the list.
Generic articles don’t spark discussion!
This is one of the major reasons why articles do not get comments. The article is too generic, it is just plain dull and boring or has been covered by several hundred other blogs before you. There is nothing to discuss.
Don’t be scared, try to push your opinion forward in your articles. The more outrageous your opinion is the better, people will want to argue with your opinion and this will spark a debate. If everything goes right your comments section will explode.
Try to write your articles 500-1000 words long. Anything too long will discourage people from reading the whole way though the article let alone make a comment. Anything too short won’t be worth discussing.
Nobody visits your blog
This speaks for itself, if nobody visits your blog then nobody will comment. Pretty sad but a very common reason.
