The comment section is not the right place to promote your brand. The comment section should be utilized to comment honesty to add some values to the blog. There are many people who comment in similar ways: “hey check out some similar in my websites,” and “check my website for enhancing your knowledge”. These comments should be avoided.

Know the website
If you do not know the motto of the website, you cannot add value to the comment on the blog. So, before you add the comment or read on of the blog post, go through the About Us or Introduction page that will enable you to know the blog motto. Try reading their previous blog posts roughly to get an overall idea. It is advisable to read at least 4 previous blog posts to get the full and crystal clear idea. You can try reading the comments to get into the discussion part. The discussion is always better than commenting and leaving the conversation as discussion always pulls the attention towards the blog commenter.
Targeting blogs of your niche
Do not leave a comment on the blogs that is not relevant to you. Google wants you to backlink to the blogs of your niche. If you follow this, you will create strong links with the site owners as well as blog readers.
Keep word count in mind
You should not post words that are below 150 words. Commenting with more than 150 words creates your influence in the blogging world. This creates a positive aura for you and this will work for you eventually.
Using same avatars
It is a common sense that you should use same avatars. If you are using same avatars, then you get recognition and trust from the bloggers. They know that you are quite active in blogging the world. Using different avatars might lead to confusion. Even if it is not your personal blog, use the same avatar as it will give you recognition.
Replying other comments
Replying positively to some comments will lead you to have a strong profile and huge online authority.
If you are using above tips, I am sure that you will be successful in comment marketing. You should know that PageRank and comments are not co-related. Page ranking cannot be improved by leaving comments on the blogs.
