“Comment subscription” plugins greatly help you in bringing visitors back to your blog and increase traffic by allowing them to subscribe for comment notifications. In such a way, comment notification subscription doesn’t let your visitors go away and it can help you in building some loyal readers over your blog. It is one of the beauties of WordPress.org that it makes all blogging tasks possible and the simplest for you with the help of plugins.
“Comment Notifier” is the best “Subscribe to Comments Plugin” for WordPress according to me which adds a check box at the bottom of your blog’s comment form. Your visitors can simply check the box to subscribe to comments on any particular post. Although JetPack of WordPress also adds a subscription box to comment section but it isn’t straightforward and simple. Firstly, JetPack is a heavy plugin and slows down your blog, secondly, your visitors need to confirm the subscription by visiting WordPress.com before they will start receiving the comment updates they are subscribed for.
Unlike JetPack, Comment Notifier doesn’t take your visitors through complicated steps and they are subscribed instantly when they just check the box and post a comment. In addition, the unsubscribe process is also simple and straightforward and your visitors can unsubscribe from notifications by simply following the “Unsubscribe” link added at bottom of each notification they receive.
More features of Comment Notifier plugin include the custom welcome email which is sent to the commentator when you approve his / her comment. You can compose a custom welcome text for your visitors and the welcome email will be sent to each and every commentator who writes a comment on your blog for the first time. In such a way, the plugin effectively helps you in bringing back the visitor to your blog and increases the readership considerably.
Moreover, Comment Notifier collects and builds an email list of subscribed users and you can view and manage the list on plugin settings page. You can view the subscribers for each and every post and can manage the subscribed emails.
Over last couple of months, the plugin has helped me nicely in bringing visitors to my blog. Thanks to Comment Notifier, my valuable readers come back periodically whenever an update is posted to their subscribed posts. If you are in search of a comment subscription plugin for your WordPress blog, then Comment Notifier must be your choice. It is both free and effective. Install it and see how visitors grow over your blog within a short span of time 🙂
(Note: Install plugin by searching “Comment Notifier” from your blog’s dashboard or install it by downloading from WP Plugin directory here).
