Optimizing Your “Thank-You-for-Comment” Page

Jordan already did once an awesome post on optimizing your “Thank-you” pages; this article is going to be more specific: it looks at various ways to get your blog commenters even more enrolled.

  • People who have found your article worth commenting are more likely to get even more enrolled;
  • People who comment are your most targeted audience; you don’t want to lose them.

3 star Optimizing Your Thank You for Comment Page3. Email-friendly way

  1. In my opinion the most effective way is the thank you page redirect where you can include links to your most important areas on your site in addition to other links such as social networking profile links.
