I have been asked this question a number of times now “Is it a good idea to put Keywords in the comment name field in blogs”…? In answer to that question i agree in some ways it is fine and in other ways no. It’s all about how you do it… Let’s look at the options below and the reasons why.
Some Examples of good comment names –
- Timon Weller
- Timon Weller from Buyers Web
- Timon Weller from Make Money Online Ramblings
As you can see by always including the name it still keeps you as your character with the added bonus of also defining where you are from. This in turn can strengthen who you are on your blog and your opinion on the subject.
Some examples of Bad Comment Names include –
- Make Money
- Easy Money
- Get Rich Quick
- Skin Care
“People in general will always remember your name easier compared to a keyword…Because it is unique”
Overall with blogging your name is the most important aspect to include in the comment name field, as in the end we really are as bloggers selling ourselves. Also when you think about it by using your name on many blogs, readers will start to recognise your name comment elsewhere and so it will add value to your blog.
