Commenting And YouTube

I’ve done a lot of posts on this blog on the importance of good commenting. I’ve even done one on grading peoples comments called, Teaching People The proper way To Comment. What I learned over time was that leaving quality comments on other blogs lead to an increase in traffic to my blogs. Which brings me to YouTube commenting.

YouTube Commenting = More Traffic

So, the question is, will leaving good comments on other YouTube videos generate more traffic to your videos. I believe it will, especially considering the quality of comments that you will find on most videos these days. Compare my latest comment to my competitors. I say, competitors because, in essence, we’re competing for recognition and the resulting traffic.

Good Commenting Rules

Youtube commenting

Watch The Whole Video: How can you expect to leave a good comment if you haven’t watched the video all the way through. You may view the video until you find something to comment on never knowing if you saw the whole thing you would have seen something that would have made your comment genuinely shine.

Comment Construction: Before leaving a comment, think about what you’re going to write. Does it add to the video? Will it be helpful to others? Comments like, great video, love your work, and the like are inane and will not lead to traffic. Those sort of comments would be deleted if they appeared on any of my blogs. Don’t believe me? Read my comment policy.

Proofread Your Comments: I believe proofreading to be an essential step in leaving great comments. Fortunately for me, Grammarly helps me to pick up on so many of the mistakes I would have otherwise missed. Proofreading proves your professionalism and shows others you care.

Read What Others Have To Say: There are times after watching a video where you’re at a loss for something to say. Sometimes reading other comments can remove that stumbling block. Also, being able to help another commenter can get you new subscribers as well as kudos from other commenters.

Nothing Say Then Say Nothing: I personally believe that it’s better not to say anything at all rather than to leave a useless comment doesn’t help anybody.

I’ve just published a YouTube video on the subject called How To Leave Great Comments On YouTube.

    Since this is pretty much the same as what you said in the video, I’m not going to add much to this comment talking about comments. Instead, I am going to recommend that you find a way to put your Twitter handle in so that if someone wants to share your comment there, like I’m going to do, that your handle is there already. After all, not everyone is as diligent as me to look it up and add it in later on (though I already know it lol).

      Hi Practitioner, is that your name? I’m allowing this comment because it doesn’t look like a keyword. You should read my comment policy, the link is in the menu above the header.
      You are right that it does take time and effort and I’m sure the results will be worth it.

    This days the quality of comments have gone so bad really, but with good comments you can get a lot of views and yes it works great for me.
    Your contents are top notch, I already bookmarked your blog, will keep visiting.

      That is so true. I understand that it’s not easy for people where English is their second language, and I make exceptions for them. Otherwise, there’s no real excuse for others who are just too slack to re-check what they have written.
