Leaving Your Name Behind

Whenever you leave any comments at a blog, an article or even the forum, how do you sign off? Do you leave your name? Or even better, your url? Are you consistently doing it? Why not??

Goggle for djStoreRoom, and see for yourself. Some of the links shown were my signature!! Leaving behind your comments and signature really helps in bringing exposure to yourself and your brand!

So, how do we sign off? I have seen many comments. And over time I developed my own signature which includes my name and my blog url and this is how it looks…

Most people do not leave their url behind when they read blogs or post on the forums. I would advise them to do so for each and every comment that they made. When you leave your clickable url behind, some people may just click on it to visit your blog! Imagine the amount of traffic you are wasting! If 10 new persons visited that particular page and read the comments, you have already wasted 10 unique hits!

And, do you limit your comments to just blogs? Of course not!! You can leave comments and your signature everywhere!! On guest books, on forums and even on articles!! Come on, leave your comments and sign off with your name and url now!!
