I read this post over on CopyBlogger: Is Commenting on Blogs a Smart Traffic Strategy?
...and it got me thinking. Yes, I think it's effective when you have something of value to add. When all you're adding is gibberish, the tactic completely backfires. Rather than having people wanting to read your content, you become an outcast in an otherwise thriving community of readers and commentators.
When I first started [Ribeezie.com], nobody knew about my blog. But as soon as I started reading and engaging with people on other websites (by simply commenting on other blogs), a small but thriving community started formulating here. In a period of about one year, we're at 1,211 comments and counting.
What do you think?
I thought I'd pose the question to you...
