Still not using KeywordLuv plugin on your blog?
You should. For more than one reason.
But later on that; let me start with telling you a bit about the plugin – judging by the fact that many of my commentators have no idea how to use it, plus I got one too many questions about it.
Since I am too lazy to write what others have written before me so well, I’ll take some excerpts from KeywordLuv download page:
Reward your commentators by separating their name from their keywords in the link to their website, giving them improved anchor text.
In other words, you are letting your commentators to use both their name – to make the comments more personal and less spammy, and the keywords that will link to the URL they chose to use in the “website” section.
If they enter “Steve@the best bank” in the Name field, their comment will have:
In the first example, they entered @ symbol between their keywords and their name and only their keywords became the anchor text.
In the second example, that’s what your anchor text would look like on a site without KeywordLuv.
For a live example, see the comment section below (and leave me a comment to test it out!).
KeywordLuv & Search Engine Ranking
So here comes the cool part.
It was brought to my attention by the fabulous Lisa Drubec of TheFriendlyBlogger.com.
Check out what she saw when she checked out her search engine ranking for the term “Blog Building Basics“:
Yes, that’s her blog in spot #3 for the term and yes, it’s MY BLOG for the same term in spot #4.
All thanks to KeywordLuv and Lisa using that term as the keyword in the comment section.
There’s a whole lot more to KeywordLuv then simply giving your readers an opportunity to advance their blogs (what’s the fun in that, huh?) through providing great comments on your blog and building quality links for themselves at the same time.
As you saw in the example above, it can also place your blog on the Google map.
Search engine ranking – here we come!
