How To Double Your Traffic This EoM! Guaranteed!!!

It’s end of month of Februaryย and for WordPress bloggers like me, it’s time to shoot your traffic through the roof and boost engagement with MyCommentAuthors.

Everyone that visited and commented on your blog this month will be excited to hear you say “Thank You” and is there any better way to say it other than MyCommentAuthors?

Many bloggers have seen this plugin very useful. What it does is simply generate for you a list of those who have been active on your blog during a certain period. Well, version 1.3 has something a little more. I’ll talk to you about it in a moment!

Though I have written about this plugin in this post, let me quickly outline some of its functions here;

  • Generate a list of all commentators on your blog during a certain month.
  • Make this list available in html so you can copy and paste in your blog post or newletter.
  • Add pagination if the generated list gets too long for a single page.
  • Add/Remove Nofollow to/from commentators where were most active (option can be disabled).
  • Generate list with/without gravatar.
  • Send friendly “Thank You” message to list of commentators from your WordPress Admin.
  • Keep you in copy if that’s what you want.

double my trafic

How can this plugin boost traffic?

Every first week of the new month, create an activity report post, showcasing your active commentators of the previous month. Not only is this a traffic boost. It’s also a steady and ever-exciting post idea.

This plugin comes in helpful in 2 steps;

  1. Generate the list of all commentators of the previous month (in html) so you can just go ahead and paste the generated html code in the activity report post (paste in Text Mode). This will automatically create a beautiful list
  2. After the post is published, go back to the plugin dashboard, under the html generated code, click “Mail This List“. Copy the url of the report post you just published, paste in the mail and send. Your commentators on the list will be alerted and watch as they rush back to your blog.

NB Before you send the mail

Be sure to do these 3 things so you don’t get embarrassed by one or two things. On the plugin’s Basic Settings panel (right sidebar), be sure to adjust the following values;

  1. Mailing limit per hour: On most shared hosting servers, there is an hourly limit on how many mails each domain can send out per hour. Any more mails after this limit is reached will simply be ignored. Find out your limit from your host and adjust here accordingly. Default is 450.
  2. Email From: Some hosts don’t allow you to send mails from emails that don’t exist on your domain. I therefore recommend not using yahoo, gmail, etc in this field. For the most part, your mails will not be delivered. Use an email that exists on your domain (info@yourdomain.com, contact@yourdomain.com, etc).
  3. Name From: This option only helps you personalize the mail even more. I recommend you enter your real names here.
  4. Gravatar Option: Not required. These are options to adjust the gravatar background and border colors to match your entire theme outlook.

Since this plugin went live about 2 weeks ago, 2 bloggers are using it to run a commenting contest on their blogs. These are:

  • Jackson Nwachukwu: Win $130 on JackPreneurโ€™s Top Commentator Contest
  • Adesoji Adegbulu: Win $70 on #MMONigeriaโ€™s Top Commentator Contest

I also have had words from 2 awesome bloggers who have written and are recommending it to their readers. These are;

Nb: Let me know if you mention this plugin on your blog. I’ll be glad to link to it and share it on social media

MyCommentAuthors 1.3

It’s Lisa Buben again! She suggested I add a widget for the frontpage. Remember in version 1.2, I added the Dashboard widget. What it does is show the blog owner the top 3 comment authors since the history of your blog. So Lisa thought it will be good to also have them shown on the blog’s sidebar. So I added this option.

Upgrade to (or grab version 1.3). Go to Appearance -> Widgets

All you have to do here is enter the title and the number of commentators you want displayed on the widget. It’s as simple as that.

  1. Hi Enstine bro!

    Yes, whenever we think how comment can boost traffic! This plugin is very useful for getting back all commentators again on your blog. It seems very easy to install and works greatly.

    I just downloaded it on my PC!

    Anyway, thanks again for letting us know about this great plugin.

  2. Thanks for sharing this great and informative article.
    I did not know about comment Authors before reading this post.
    It is very interesting and great plugin.
    It is a very great idea.
    I appreciate your work and great sharing for us.
    Thanks once again.

  3. What a great idea for a plugin Enstine.
    I agree, it provides a really unique way of encouraging bloggers to return to a site.
    Will check it out, thanks.

  4. Hi enstine,

    I got to know about Mycomment author plugin. Its a great plugin. I want to organize a giveaway and blog commenting contest on my blog and I want to use this plugin. I need your help in this.

  5. Hello Enstine Muki,
    I never heard about this Plugin, I know about only comment Luv Plugin.
    I read entire post and found great feature. It’s really Interesting Plugin.
    and it’s a great idea to appreciate Visitor through Monthly report.
    Any way Thanks Enstine Muki for sharing your hard work with us.

  6. Thanks Estine for sharing this.
    Actually I didn’t know about it until I read this post which means your post has been beneficial to someone. Am also sure am not the only one who didn’t know about this.
    The reason I like to visit blogs like yours is to learn of the latest trends in blogging world so that I know what is relevant and what’s not. However I always take such recommendations with a pinch of salt because I have noticed there are many suggestions about various plug-ins especially with wordpress and surely you cant use all of them because not all of them are really necessary.
    However I have to say if it’s something that will help me increase traffic I am always for the idea especially for a new blog.
    And by the way have you blogged using blogger(google)? How does it compare with wordpress? I would love you to write a post about this.

  7. Enstine,

    What a smart idea, I was wondering how you did that! It’s a fantastic way to make commentators feel appreciated and I had no idea it was so easy! I’ll definitely have to look into it more when I can find a minute, because I can definitely see how it could be great for one’s blog traffic.

    You’re so smart. =)

    • Hey Brittany,
      Thanks for showing up on this post ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I’ll be glad to see you run this on your blog. BTW, I was on your blog a few minutes ago but I was unable to rely to the reply you left on my comment. Looks like you have to adjust your comment settings to allow for more conversation ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Oh really? I didn’t realize I didn’t have that option, how lame! How would I fix that and still keep my WP commenting system? Is there a plugin for that?

        • Hi Brittany,
          You just have to go to your blog Admin -> Settings -> Discussion

          Under Other comment settings, locate the option Enable threaded (nested) comments and set the depth to something like 5 or 6

          That should open up your comments for more replies, discussions and engagement.

          Please let me know how it goes

  8. Hey Enstine,
    The plugin you shown over there is really cool. Will be waiting forward to use it in my new blog launching soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you.

  9. Hi Muki, traffic generation is the pursuit of every blogger, therefore, any tutorial on this subject is a must read, thanks for sharing.

  10. Enstine bro, after this post, you just forced me to say

    ‘YOU ARE THE BEST’. I have not experienced such awesome articles even at BasicBlogtips.com. Everything written with pure simplicity and concluding awesomeness inside it. Hats off to your man!!!

    Regards,
    Divyansh

  11. Wow! Cool one for the new month anyway. This can’t be used on blogs hosted in the blogger blogging platform, this is so sad to hear. But all the same it’s a wonderful one. I recieved a message from madam Herleena using this awesome plugin and i was happy that you could help others to make blogging easy.
    Thanks Enstine Muki.

  12. Hello Enstine,

    Thank you once again for developing such a great plugin! It was so easy to configure and add to my sidebar!

    Definitely sharing this! Hope you’re having a great week!

    • Hi Corina,
      Thanks for stepping over here and leaving a comment
      Yes, it’s beautiful on your blog and thanks for using it.

      Just create a thank you post this month end and send a mail to your commentators. They’ll surely love it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. This is an awesome plugin for bloggers like us to get more traffic thanks for the recommendation and update version

  14. Hi Enstine, as always, actionable information. The only chagrin I have, without trying to be a spoil-sport: this thank-you email is not based on a double-opt-in unless at the same time that particular commenter has already subscribed to your blog (comments) somehow and during this process passed through a double opt-in process. Since the Canadians have now even topped the (US) CANSPAM act, I would certainly not go overboard with it. I would suggest, if the comment thus recognized is really a worthwhile one chances are the commenter might appreciate such recognition. But others might also be fishing for “litigation fodder”. I don’t know, time will tell.

  15. Looks to be a really great plugin for WordPress blogs. A nice way to reward your commentators as well as boost your site traffic at the same time. Thanks a lot for coming up with this plugin, I have downloaded it and will start using on all my WordPress sites ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Hey Enstine,

    Oohh, so that’s what the name of the plugin is. I seen a couple of emails you sent to me with a list of other bloggers, and i was wondering what plugin you were using for this! Now I know and now it’s time to implement. I sure appreciated you sending me the email of how many times i commented and I’m sure that others will too! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Enstine, your commitment to updating this plugin with awesome features is what makes it one of its kind in WP.

    I can recall vivdily when you first launched it, today it’s turning into an eye catchy plugin.

    There is nothing awesome than letting your amiable readers know how well you value comments they left on your blog. I will say nothing but thumbs up for such a professional blogging intiative!

    The v1.3 coming with a sidebar widget is great, atleast it’s another great way to show off your most dedicated commenters.

    Cheers bro!

  18. Thank you for this very much informative article about “MyCommentAuthors”. I didn’t know about it. And also thank you for describing “How to use it, install it etc.?”

  19. Hey Enstine,

    I absolutely love this plug in! It is such a great idea to shoot a “thank you” to all of your readers for leaving comments! I definitely see how well it works and how it has changed the engagement to my own blog.

    I also love the fact that it is getting updated with some of these new and amazing features! It is so easy to use for someone like me who isn’t mega tech savvy. Thank you as well for explaining the new functions and exactly how to use them. I believe with the use of your plugin we can all have a better blogging experience!

    Still incredibly fired up about what is coming in the very near future ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for everything Enstine! If you ever need any help, I’m always around!

    All the best,
    Jeff Sollee

  20. WOW! Thank for sharing this useful tips.
    I need to try it out and see the result by myself.
    You rock man

  21. Hi Enstine,

    Glad to know that you have a new version of this plugin.

    The widgets you have added are really great to show. I liked the option to limit e-mails.
    Gravatar option is also effective to use. There are many people who don’t use any image as their Gravatar. Their comments shouldn’t be approved.

    This plugins can increase traffic to the blog. People like to get mentioned and see their name at famous blog they comment.

    Lisa has written an informative post regarding this plugin.

    Great to know more about it.

    Hope you have a good day.:)

  22. It does make sense, tried that actually, but with different plugin, actually on completely different CMS. Though on latest changes on my layout I’ve removed this widget. Probably I will turn it back.

  23. Hi Enstine, glad to see you updated the latest version with this new feature ๐Ÿ™‚ It does look cool and I really like it. Can go back a year but can it be like the one in dashboard for all time? I didn’t see that option but I could have missed it. Thank you Enstine. I can’t wait to the first thank you email next week with the new month!

  24. I’m really in luv with the plugin. You definitely deserved more than a complement. Thanks bro Enstine for sharing and stay bless.

    I will migrate from Blogger to WordPress, and install this plugin soon. Thanks for this plugin. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Hey Enstine,

    Already heard about this plugin but never found enough time to activate it on my blog, I’ve been getting your thank you emails and no doubt it’s a great method to get your regular commenters back to your blog.

    Good luck with the plugin, i hope i’ll activate the plugin this week.

    • Hi Enstine, I am really enjoying reading your blog post from recent to previous one like this. I am planning to put this on my new blog because I am going to use WP now rather than Blogger. Hope sooner I can do this.

        • Nah… No need for thanks sir. I am being loyal because I really admire bloggers who put a lot of info in their content like what you did.
