When blogging regularly, people will start responding to what you write.
Maybe not right away, but as your blog is growing, you’ll have to deal with comments on your blog.
Especially when you write about your worldview or opinions, some people will disagree with you.
You’ll therefore have to deal with the responses and opinions of your readers. But how?
Are comments on your blog important for SEO?
Comments add content to your blog post. And Google indexes all content on your website, including every comment in every blog post.
Do not get excited just yet, because Google will instantly recognize comments as being just comments.
Their value for the search engine will be much lower than the original content of the blog post.
Responding to comments on your blog will therefore not instantly improve your SEO, but it will result in higher percentages of returning visitors.
