Nice article but I feel there is something disingenuous about leaving comments to generate website traffic. I gree with BizVoter...it seems that comments are becoming an egocentric way to get something rather than for just expressing appreaciation for a well written post. I see more and more articles making it into a strategy and a science.

Leaving comments is a good thing, but if a person needs to spend time doing this to get traffic, there might be something seriously wrong with with their marketing approach.

I am dismayed to see so many writing about blog comments as a strategy. From someone who reads blogs and comments on them because I like them it seems like a bizarre mentality.

BIZvoter,

I can understand your point of view, but I think we might consider that even social activities undertaken in the face-to-face world at times have more than one motive. For example, you don't go to a chamber breakfast just to enjoy the food or to see your friends. There's an understanding that some networking is going on. Certainly business leaders attempt to make themselves available for interviews in the mainstream press on their area of expertise not simply out of respect for the First Amendment or the Fourth Estate but as a clever form of marketing or PR for their particular company or business. The distinction is whether there is any value in the information being provided or if these, like comments made on a post or in a social media environment, are clearly ONLY self-serving gestures with NO value being exchanged. I can honestly say that I have sometimes been thanked for comments I have made or knowledge I have freely shared when commenting, but it would be disingenuous for me to say that I have not been helped by the exposure commenting has given me or that I would likely go on doing so if I never received any benefit from the exchange. The reality is that online marketing like most human endeavors is a give and take. What each person considers of value in the exchange is up to them.
