The amazing plug-in, CommentLuv Premium, is sweeping the blogosphere!
Invented by coding guru Andy Bailey, CommentLuv gives you the power to reward commenters with links back to their own articles. You can set the rewards to encourage more comments, notify Twitter, Facebook, G+, etc., or lure readers to register to your site.
CommentLuv Premium is amazingly flexible for you the blog owner to offer other bloggers rewards
But as a commentor, the CommentLuv Premium offers you equal flexibility.
Standard Comment Method
The standard comment technique is to enter your name, your e-mail address, the URL of your homepage, a comment politely and tastefully crafted, and finally, a link to your most recent post.
Using this standard approach offers the usual opportunity to make a politely worded germane comment and to promote one of your articles, where cleverness and creativity are reflected in the post’s title.
Let’s Kick It up a Notch
When the CommentLuv blog where you are commenting allows it, you have an additional power. This is the power to add keywords following your name and the “@ ” sign. Thusly, Astro Gremlin@knickknacks for sale. ”
To have this power bestowed upon you may be required to have left three comments, or met some other condition, or may not be allowed at all (bummer).
Keywords of your choosing are limited in number, ranging from 1 to 9, typically 3 to 4.
These words serve as what is called “anchor text” for your site. Search engines such as Google see these anchor text words associated with the URL address of your homepage. If you are a purveyor of knickknacks, for example, the keyword anchor text “knickknacks” tells search engines that your site is relevant to that topic.
For example, if you happen to have a personal blog and happen to be an ax murderer fan, the “anchor text” keywords such as “chop chop,” “Lizzie Borden,” or “40 whacks” might all work well to let Google know what your site is about.
This flexibility offers you nearly infinite creative opportunity to let the world know with many word combinations just what a reader can expect when they click on your name.
Leave enough of these kinds of anchor text keywords around the Internet and you may become the featured guest for a long interview. By an “edgy” talk radio show or local law enforcement.
You can add a boost to the overall gestalt, at least for a human reader, by promoting an exciting post title from the CommentLuv pulldown menu. “Mom Gets 40, Dad 41: Gender Inequity?” “Sharpening Tips and Do They Really Make a Difference” or “Diplomatic Conversation Starters with Standoffish Neighbors.”
To set these choices, get CommentLuv Premium, and in your settings select a list of your best post AND page titles to promote when you leave a comment.
Going the Distance
Now these standard techniques are going to, of course, promote your featured article. Moreover, choice keyword anchor texts for your homepage are going to notify Google of its relevance to those keywords. Make it a habit of commenting on five, 10 or 20 sites a day the search engines soon get multiple clues about the topics in your homepage content.
Put It on Turbo
Here’s the really cool tip. What if instead of the standard homepage URL, you put in the URL of a specific post? Let’s say you have a landing page deep in your site and you enter its full address instead of the standard homepage URL. Now the keywords you select are going to serve as anchor text for that specific article.
Let’s assume you’re getting a little bored with the ax murderer thing and want to branch out into arranging and photographing flowers. Instead of your usual ax murderer homepage, you enter the full link to an article called “My Favorite Funeral Wreath Designs.” Now you also diverge from your usual keywords, and type after your name “@ lilies and ferns.” For a comment on another site, you could use the same article URL but this time put “@babies breath” or “@black roses.” For these comments you can also select a nice article from your collection, say, “Natural Fertilizers for Amazing Fern Growth.”

Look at What You’ve Done
By using different URLs for your new “home” link with selected relevant keywords, you are directing traffic to a targeted part of your blog. I don’t know if the selection of relevant feature post adds any extra oomph to the search engine’s perception of this new target. But it couldn’t hurt.
Put some relevant keywords into your comment itself. This isn’t hard. Tell the writer that their prose is flowery yet peaceful and makes you want to visit often. Who knows if this adds a fourth level of CommentLuv Premium turbocharged relevance to your anchor text?
