Commenting is a killer strategy to make a relationship with any blogger. Even I made some nice friends by commenting regularly on their blog. Commenting is a sign of trust, you can you make a valuable comment on others blog. Also you can ask any questions or doubts in a comment section.

Retweeting is another form of building trust. If you are Retweeting others post, the chances are high that you will get a retweet in response, this helps to build a strong relationship between bloggers. Most of the WordPress blogs provides RT button. You can tweet the post by @username instead of default @tweetmeme.

You can help you fellow blogger by providing some help to them. Its either helping them  when their blog is down due to some error in the server or providing some help in designing their blog better. You may give any useful suggestion in the form of email or DM in Twitter.

  1. The word “link exchange” was set to filter messages hit my inbox and all of them will be deleted automatically. I hate these sorts of blogger.
    Yep, comment is great for building relationship. Some use this tactic for backlink or gain traffic but it’s worst for these SEO stuff. For me, leveraging the social media may do more and far more effectively. But for relationship, commenting is always a smart tactic, isn’t it?

    • Very nice question Tushar! I want to ask you a question: Do you feel comfortable to give link juice to any blogger? Link juice is a precious thing and it should not be shared with anyone on the internet. If you are getting link from the high PR blog or high traffic blog then it is acceptable but if you are exchanging link with any blog whose key factors are not appropriate then it will be just like giving free link to any blog in exchange of nothing.

  3. I do a simple task of checking their facebook profiles and sending them friend requests.
