Why Your Comments Don’t Get Approved
You leave comments on blogs & they are not approved? See why you should delete disapproved words & create new blogs comments with our tips
Maybe your comments are spam in some way. Maybe you use names like “Make money online,” “Tips and tricks,” and so on. And some bloggers/Webmasters marked your comment as spam, and Akismet is treating your comment as spam on all the blogs. Do you leave comments on blogs, and they don’t get approved? See why you should delete disapproved words and create new comments on these blogs with our tips.
The easy way to get out of this is to comment on a few blogs and add useful and detailed comments. Also, send an Email to the owner using the comment form, And inform them that you have commented some useful comments and your comment is not showing, And please check your spam folder.
You need to add valuable comments to connect with like-minded bloggers. If you put useful comments, it will grab more attention. More attention means more traffic. So blog commenting can increase your blog’s engagement, traffic, and brand ability.
Using Keywords of Name Field
The name field is only for your name. Obviously, your name is not something like ‘blogging tips,’ ‘SEO tips,’ ‘tech blog,’ etc. Using keywords or your blog name as your name is the first sign of spam comments.
If the blog owner finds keywords as names, s/he might not read your comments. So no matter how good a comment is, your comment will be deleted or moved to Spam.
How to fix it? Don’t use keywords in Name Field. Use your full name. It will help you to engage with the blog owner and others. If you want to use your blog name on the name field, then add your blog name beside your name, like “Visualmodo @ WordPress.” But it’s not a good practice to get your comments approved.
Comments Without Content
I get a lot of one-line comments at Visualmodo like these
“Great post. Thanks for sharing”
“Thanks for the post”
I like these compliments, but I’ve to delete this right away. Because they do it only for the link, these types of comments hurt the blog’s quality.
How to fix it? Take some time to read the post and share your thoughts in at least 2-3 lines. There is nothing wrong with commenting, “Great post. Thanks for sharing,” but make sure to follow it up. Share why you think the post was great. So try to add some value to your comment. And more importantly, if you’ve any questions, ask them.
Comments With Links it is Not a Good Practice for Approved Comments
You might have a similar post on your blog, and you want to share the link in the comment. Stop! Don’t do that if you are not a regular commenter on that blog. Maybe delete valuable comments if it contains a link or anchor text.
Certainly, most blog owners don’t like links in comments.
How to fix it? If you have a good connection with the blog owner, you may share links in a comment. But don’t make it a habit. Therefore never add anchor text to blog comments, as they will be disapproved.
Comments without a Gravatar
Gravatar allows you to show your picture in blog comments. Personally, I don’t delete any comment just because of not having any Gravatar. But the problem is the Akismet WordPress plugin that sometimes marks valuable comments as Spam.
Unfortunately, if your comment goes to the Spam folder, there is less chance that your comment will be approved. But if you have a Gravatar, the blog owner will surely notice your comment on Spam. Because most of the owners look at a glance before deleting spam comments.
How to fix it? Set a Gravatar Now. It will take just 2-3 minutes to add a picture to your every comment. It will help you to build a brand, increase traffic and build relationships.
Offensive Words it is Not a Good Practice for Getting Approved Comments
There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with someone. I really like it if someone corrects me. But that doesn’t mean that I’ll tolerate someone who uses slang, cursing words, or makes any personal attack. I will delete the comment.
How to fix it: Don’t be rude. If you don’t agree with something, say it politely and give strong reasons.
Comments on disapproved blogs? See why you should delete disapproved comments and create new words on those blogs. If you are not making any of the above mistakes, but your comments still need to be approved, I suggest reading the blog’s comment policy and contacting the blog owner. How do you comment on blogs?
