Keep your commenting system simple
Leaving comments on your blog should be as easy as possible.One thong most visitors detest is having to go through the registration stage before hey are able to leave comments on your blog.To achieve this ,i recommend you enable commenting through email ids, social media sites, open id, url ,removing CAPTCHA and other hurdles to commentinget.

Most comments left on your blog post are left out of interest on the post,so taking your time to visit your commenter blog and leave a meaningful comment there,acknowledging them for visiting your blog.This goes a long way to telling your blog commenter that their visit,comment was actually appreciated and will stil e welcomed anytime any day.
Be Concise In Writing
Not everyone has all the time on earth to read your article of about 1000-1500.An average visitor spends 2-3 minutes on a page,that is just enogh to scan through a 300-400 word article and stil have time to consider leaving a comment if the post is worthy of his/her comment.
Make Your Blog Popular
Have you ever wondered why and how some blog post receives close to a thousand comments?.I guess that is because they are popular and authority blogs in their niches.If you have a popular blog,you are sure of getting comments on your blog even if your post is short,long or even if its makes little or n o sense,provided such post is on a popular blog,people would ordinarily wish to comment if not for anything but for backlink and possible traffic.
Lastly,i would advise you not to ever beg friends through Email , beg on Facebook or even on twitter for them to comment.Such comment may not be a true reflection of their real thought about your post.
