  1. Hi Victoria
    Just wanted to thank you for a great SEO presentation yesterday. I loved hearing about this case you share here and how powerful just weekly blogging can be. Love the image in this blog and how this blog checks so many of the things you said to include, even down to the personal part about pineapples and dreadlocks!

    I am the person who asked about the value of comments on your blog and responding to comments when it comes to SEO (as I mentioned, I get a ton of comments on my blog with over 800 on my most popular one).

    I did a bit of digging and found that Neil Patel published some data “in regard to whether or not blog comments generate more search traffic.”

    “Neil found that he averages about 176 comments per post, with 22.6 words per comment, which means that allowing blog comments nets him an average of 3,978 extra words on each page.

    Next, he checked Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools to see whether the blog comments were resulting in more search engine rankings. He found that approx. 26.7% of the keywords that were ranking in Google were from the comments section.
    However, to figure out how much additional traffic he was receiving from those rankings, Neil took a look at the actual number of impressions and clicks that those rankings received.

    Overall, he found that the comments section brought in 16% of all search traffic.”

    It’s from an older post on optinmonster dot com so I don’t know if this still applies. If it is still relevant I’ll take it. Next is for me to check my google analytics.

  2. Trudy, it was my pleasure. I’m always so excited to share SEO tips with people who are pushing good science to the top of Google.

    I love that you sourced Neil Patel! Yes! Thank you for following up on this and sharing the info with me…16% is not a small percentage of search traffic, but I agree that it would be optimal to check your own analytics and see if your blogs with more comments are resulting in higher levels of organic traffic, as ranking factors change over time.

    FYI: Neil’s SEO tool, Ubersuggest, is the one I use to teach specific SEO techniques. It’s user-friendly and very affordable, and it’s what he’s using to get information on keywords.

    Please stay in touch with any other info you find, and I hope I get to work with you again!
