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

SMS Text

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.

1. Social Media-Friendly Way:

Description: Encourage those who comment “tweet”, “like” and share your page at various social media networks.

Actual example: Contentrix

Thank you for the comment

2. RSS-Friendly Way

Description: Show a new page to the commenter where you express your gratitude and encouragement and offer to subscribe to the blog (gets 4 stars as the user is almost unable to return to the original page to read more, leave more comments, Tweet the post, etc).

Actual example: Outspoken Media Blog

Thank you for the comment page

!Tip: Here’s a detailed tutorial on how this can be done.

3. Email-friendly way

Description: Thank your commenter by a friendly email notice (might be considered spam by some, though I am not going to state it really is. I for one didn’t think that way but you should be generally very careful with auto-email notices).

Actual example: BlogGodown

Thank you for your comment email

!Tip: This can be done with help of “Thank me later” WordPress plugin

Which of the above methods look like something you would like to give a try to? Or do you have any more to add?

    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.
