These is so much to do on the internet for the people therefore they do not have time to leave comments even though they like the content.

I read a lot of contents online however, I do not comment. I leave comment only when I want to learn more. You should not worry about getting comments. What actually matters is getting traffic and generating revenue.

That's really true. What's the point in having comments that do not add value to your content. having a lot of comments on your posts also means having a lot of links on your page, which is not very good in terms of SEO.

I have had a few comments on my blog and the blog I have has not had any spam posted on it. I don't really have a niche. I just post about things I do on the weekends or what is going on like weekend sports. Then I share it on social media and get a few visitors weekly. I also have an earning area there for all the programs I belong to. Forumcoin is on the list :)

You mean back links are not good for SEO? As far as my knowledge goes back links play a major role in SEO ? Kindly correct me if I am wrong dear friend! :(

If your site has too many external links, it might harm your website SEO. Therefore, having too many links from the commentators is not good for your site

If your articles get comments, it indicates a couple of things
readers like your article
your article is engaging
your bounce rate is low
That's why I give importance to comments and I try to invite users to leave comments.

Another way of getting comments to your blog is to do it for others. When other bloggers received comments from other bloggers, some of them would return the favor.

Blog commenting is one of the ways to generate comments on your own blog. However, reciprocation is lesser known in the blogging world. Therefore, it is better to create a group of bloggers and then participate on comment exchange.

The only way for you to have people comment on your Blog is writing quality and informative content. When users see such, they either leave your site after commenting or go by the advert. Either way, that is good for you. Personally, if the user exit way is by touching my advert, then of course, commenting comes later. That means earning. But trust me, comments come by themselves where necessary.

I think you should not worry too much about getting comments. What actually matter is traffic and engagements with your ads. Because at the end of the day how much you are earning matters more.

In my experience, getting comments is related to traffic. I have noticed that when the site begins to receive more traffic, you will see more comments coming in. However, mire than 90 percent comments are spam comments.

There is no easy or standardized method of doing it, but i do think writing engaging and asking questions at the end of the post helps alot http://naijblack.blogspot.com

Aha, yes, I have noticed that. I did not check my blog's dash board for a week and there were more than 100 spam comments. removing spam comments is frustrating, however, they do help our site with keeping the bounce rate down.
