SEO Super Comments

The whole concept behind the plugin is presented in Presenting SEO Super Comments Concept which I suggest reading.

For each user comment we will create a new dynamic page on the blog, holding the actual comment information. This page will not actually exist in WordPress database, but we will create it dynamically using a WordPress plugin.

What we instantly get in this way is big jump in site's index visible to search engines. This is possible because blog comments are crawl-able, index-able and most importantly rank-able content. Also meaning you will start to get search engine traffic for the context of the comment.

The old author link in the comments will now lead to the newly generated page. Author's URL will still be displayed (and we can do-follow it now as it will be only one external link on the page).

The concept relies around optimizing the target page using title and H1 tag using the context of the comment. So basically we will take the excerpt of the comment and use it to create the page title and H1 tag and in the body we will old the content of the comment (plus some more goodies, read on).

Since now all comments normally drain page rank even when nofollowed (bad for your site) the whole idea of using them to generate links back to your site instead and get free indexable content along the way, looks just much more appealing.

To spice things up, the dynamic comment page concept additionally features:

  • List of author's other comments on the post are presented (good value for the visitor, more content)
  • List of author's other comments on the blog (even more content, chance to interlink to your other posts, more value to the visitor)
  • Author url links are do-followed (option, but why not?)
  • Extra few clicks generated will increase your pageviews, lower the bounce rate and increase any CPM advertising revenue
  • I have also created a mod for hugely popular XML sitemaps plugin to include all the new dynamic comment pages into your sitemap, so that the search engines can index the pages more quickly. Download the modified files here and replace them in the plugin folder (works for plugin version 3.1.2, experts only!)

Installation & Usage

  1. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin.
  3. Use the Options page to change your options
  4. That is all. You can check your posts for new links.

New from version 0.6

I added the option to specify 'friendly' websites that have their links intact, and also dofollowed.

This adds you the possibility to send some of your high ranking page PR juice to a friendly site.

    I have been using SEO for comments since last year and its a excellent plugin. It helped my blog's traffic grow substantially.

    I could also see drop of traffic since last one month. Since last few days, I noticed that links on comments are not being generated. This may be one of the reason for traffic drop and search position downgrade.

    Comments links can be checked on this page: http://www.pankajbatra.com/finance/fixed-income-plans-ppf-scss-corporate-fixed-deposit/#comments. See there is no link against commenter's names which was there earlier I believe.

    Did anybody else have also encountered the same issue?

    If developer of the plugin can read this post, please can you help out?

      In my case, neither comment links are being generated nor the plugin is behaving the way it should with Genesis framework.

      The plugin is very good in generating traffic but unfortunately it is not working now :(

      I have edited plugin code and got it working.

      In function SEOSuperComments_author_link()
      Lines after below are unreachable and code is not making sense to me.
      if ($comcountstrip_nofollow($link);

      So I have commented above 3 lines of code.

    is there any plugin with the same feature for blogspot? or was this really designed for WordPress only?

    Thanks

    Vladimir, very interesting plugin! Exactly I was looking for!

    But I don't see any your comment-pages in google search.
    For example take text of some comment from current page:
    http://www.google.com/#q=%22Also+curious+why+you+don%27t+use+the+plugin+on+this+site%3F%22+site:prelovac.com
    Only one result! Where is comment-pages in google index?
    Also it's not clear why there is no links to each comment's page from comment to post?

    It's really important to know your answer. Because now I'm completely confused to use or not to use.
    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    I installed the plugin on the site, but can not figure out how to set up links to each page commentary.

  5. Sep 29th, 2011 10:44 AM

    I really like the idea. I already wanted this feature to separate the comments for easier reading. But your SEO idea is great.

    I tried SEO Super Comment it on 3 sites, my personal blog, http://www.meo.vn and http://www.homenh.vn which has hundred of comments a day. Those use 2 diferrent themes. But it doesn't work. Is it because the plugin is too old and not competable with newest wordpress version. Or is it because I didn't install it correctly in the theme files?

    Please help. Thank you.

    See you've updated the plugin, did you fix the canonical URL issue with newer versions of WordPress?

    Issue was unless you disable canonical URLs on the template file the comment pages get a canonical URL to the orignal post: Google doesn't index them.

    Also curious why you don't use the plugin on this site? I've used a highly edited version of the plugin with my Stallion SEO theme (built into the theme) and run it on all my sites, adds a lot of indexed content and makes commenting more worthwhile because the comments are like posts, but easier to write (I find writing comments easier than writing posts, less formal).

    Do a Google site: search for
    site:http://www.stallion-theme.com/

    That domain has less than 70 posts/pages, but over 350 indexed pages in Google thanks to a derivative of your plugin (most indexed pages are comments), the site has around 500 comments, they aren't all indexed as comment pages because I edited your code so it only shows the comment link for posts with X number of charachters (didn't want single sentance comments wasting link benefit).

    Your plugin is a great concept for extending WordPress SEO.

    looks coool, i will be using it on my AutoBlog.

  19. May 25th, 2011 9:36 AM

    Of course, one thing you will always look while blog commenting is that the comment is related to the article at hand. You do not want to raise red flags for spamming another article just to improve the optimization of your Internet search engine. You have to actual practice. If the comment is not related to the topic, you will not only get flagged but you will also confuse those who may have a propensity to visit your site. What spam does irritate visitors to view your site and make sure you become something of a pariah in the community of bloggers.
