Evil ways to get comments

By Mohnish On February 16, 2009 Under Blogging, Make Money Online

I’m so fed up waiting for comments that I’ve now decided to do it the ‘Evil’ way. I have tried all the ways to get comments from visitors but its been a big FAIL. For those who are not evil like me, you can see my previous blog post about getting comments the legit way.

Buy the comments
You can pay people to comment on your blog or dangle the carrot in front of them with a reply contest. I hosted a contest on Sensonize.com when it was new and easily got 20 comments 😉

The main problem with a reply to contest is it only generates comments to one post. It looks very strange to see one post with a bunch of comments and the rest with none. The solution would be to give commentators additional entries if they leave a comment in another post.

Make a commenting gang/group
For all those who yet don’t know about this, join digg! On Digg and many social networking websites friends/users make a group to Digg/Fav/Stumble etc each others submitted links which is amazingly the best way to get up.

Be Your Own Top Commentator
If all else fail then it’s time for you to be the top commentator. Make up an alias and reply to your own post. Now you may think this is dishonest but in marketing, perception is everything and the perception is a blog without any comments is not a happening blog.

I’ve seen blog posts where the blogger asked a question from his readers. A couple of days later I got back and there’s zero comments to the question. That does not look good. If you are going to ask a question from your readership and there’s no reply, then answer it yourself with an alias. Having one comment on there is better than having none. That one comment may be all that’s needed to get the comment ball rolling. If you’re really evil, you’ll set up a bunch of aliases and really make the blog come to life. Remember, perception is everything.

Being Evil is not bad! 👿

    Thanks! I love being :evil:… I have another evil way to scam your credit card company just like they scam you.(I mean legit scam LOL). I will post it later on about making money with your credit card by paying only 1/12 of the amount every month with 0% interest 😉

    Yes, these are evil ways, but it is ok if you do it moderately and only at the beginning, as it takes some time to make a blog popular.
