In the world of blogging, we all know the higher your ranking in the search engines, the more traffic you tend to bring in. We also know that one of the ways to increase your ranking is by creating content. The more content you have, the more “pages” you have, the higher you will rank (of course backlinks also play a role – but I only want to focus on your content at this point).
But creating content has always been a long and sometimes tedious task that we could really only rely on ourselves to create. So what if there was a way your readers (or commentators) could create that additional content for you? And I’m not talking about guest posting!
Let Commentators Create Your Content
A very new and intriguing plugin just emerged in the WordPress plugins codex and unlike most of the plugins that are added, it is extremely useful.
The plugin is called SEO Super Comments, and all it does is create separate, index-able pages from the comments readers leave on your blog. These comment “pages” contain keyword rich H1 titles based on the content of the comment as well as links to other comments left by that specific commentator. Thus creating links back to old posts on your blog, and also increasing blog stickiness.
For a good example, click on the author’s name of any of the comments left on this blog.
Supersize My Content Please
If you are like most bloggers, you probably have 4-5 times as many comments as you do posts. So by dynamically creating a page for every comment on your blog which all contain links to other posts on your blog, you are literally increasing your indexable content by 4-5 times as much.
The power of this plugin is phenominal, and if you aren’t using it, I suggest you start. It’s free so why not!?!
What are your thoughts on this plugin? Are you using it? If so, I’d love to hear how it has affected your blog!
