So you’re blogging with WordPress now. You just found out that leaving comments on other blogs in your niche is cool. Why? Because when you do, you have to sign in with your name and email address. You can actually sign in with the email address that is linked to your blog, and when you leave a comment there will be a link back to your website. This is a great opportunity to add valuable insight in the comments of other websites that are in your niche. This exhibits your professionalism and shows that you are knowledgeable.. and it makes it more likely for someone to click your comment and land on your website. WordPress profiles just aren’t complete without Gravatar Images!
There is a real cool modification you can take advantage of to add an image to your WordPress profile. This will add a personal touch to your comments on every website that can sign in with your WordPress account.
Notice in the image below, that it’s much more attractive to have an image as opposed to the default WordPress user icon.
All you have to do is go to Gravatar.com and sign up for a free account. You can add whatever email that you have attached to your WordPress profile to your Gravatar account and add an image to it. Now your email has a gravatar image attached to it, so whenever you leave a comment using that address the image will show up.
This is a great way to draw more eyes to your comments. Other than having a great comment, the eyes will likely first go to the comments that have images in front of them. You can raise your rate of being read, and possibly clicked (free traffic).
If you need to find out what email address is connected to your WordPress profile, simply log into WordPress. Go to the ‘Users’ menu, and select ‘Your Profile’. Then you can add or change what email you have attached to your profile. This will be the same email you want to attach an image to at Gravatar.com.
It’s so simple that you really should do this right away! It will surely bring more clicks, and possibly fresh leads and sales to your blog.
Until next time,
