CommentLuv: An Easy Way To Improve Your Page Rank

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

CommentLuv is a great WordPress plugin that increases engagement and can also help improve your Google page rank.


What is CommentLuv?

CommentLuv is a plugin that allows your commenters to link a recent post from their site into the comment they leave on your blog. Usually, there’s a little checkbox next to one of many different CommentLuv icons in the comment area on a post (much like this one). When you check the box, CommentLuv scurries over to your website, pulls in info from your latest post(s), and attaches it to your comment.

You can see an example of the CommentLuv plugin in action below – Jenn from The Rebel Chick had her Wordless Wednesday post pulled in by the plugin.


CommentLuv Example

How does CommentLuv help the commenter?

When you comment on blogs with CommentLuv enabled, you’re creating backlinks to your website, also known as incoming links. One of the factors Google uses to determine a site’s page rank is the number of quality incoming links. By commenting on sites with higher page ranks than your own, you’re increasing the number of sites linking back to you, and thus helping to boost your own page rank.

By using CommentLuv, you’re also displaying your content in other places. For example, by commenting on this post, you’re not just creating a conversation, you’re also promoting your site to my readers by having a link right there for them to click on.

How does CommentLuv help a blogger?

Think of CommentLuv as a way to reward your readers for engaging with you through comments. People are more likely to engage with your content if there’s something in it for them.

If you’re worried about having poor quality links on your site, you can always use the “no follow” tag to prevent Google spiders from crawling through comments. Personally, I don’t worry about this. Comments are all the way at the bottom of the page. Based on the hierarchy Google spiders use to crawl a site, by the time they reach my comments, they’ve already gathered data from my headings and body text, so very little link juice, if any, would be lost if they continue crawling comments.

  10. I was wondering if this was considered in blog rankings.. thanks for answering my question!

  11. I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  12. Thanks for the explanation.
