You are spending too much time on website or blog commenting although your comments don’t get approved.
If you are facing this problem, after that you may be doing something wrong. You have to change your commenting technique.
Blog commenting can be an enormous way to improve your traffic as well as get some link juice, although it shouldn’t be self-serving simply. If you are doing it simply for self promotion, after that you are doing it wrong.
You need to add precious comments to connect with likeminded bloggers. If you write useful comments, it will grab more attention. More attention means more traffic. So website or blog commenting can improve engagement, traffic as well as brand ability of your website or blog.
If you are still struggling along with blog commenting, here are some explanation why your comments don’t get approved also read how to fix it.
Why Your Comments Don’t Get Approved and (And How to Fix It)
1. Using Keywords of Name Field
The name field is simply for name. Apparently your name is not something like- Blogging Tips, Tech Blog, SEO Tips etc. Using Keyword or your blog or website name as your name is the first and major sign of spam comments.
If blog owner finds keywords as your name, she or he might not read or check your comments. So no issue how good comment it is, your comment will be obliterated (Deleted) or moved to spam.
Fix it- Don’t use keywords on name field. Use your complete name. It will facilitate you to engage with blog owners as well as others. If you would like to use your blog or website name on the name field, after that add your blog or website name besides your name like “AMIT@ WorthOfBlog”. Conversely it is not a good practice.

2. One Line Comments
I get a lot of one line comment on my blog Worth of Blog like these..
“Great Pots. Thanks for Sharing”
“Thanks for the sharing with us”
“You are awesome”
Guys I like these good wishes, but I have to deleted this right way. For the reasons that do it only for the link as well as these types of comments hurt the quality of the blog or website.
Fix It- take some times to read the post as well as share thoughts by comments at least on 2-3 lines. There is nothing wrong to comment” Great Post or Awesome or wonderful Post, Thanks for the Sharing such type post” but make sure to follow it up. Share why you think the post was great or awesome. Try to add some importance to your comment. And more outstandingly, if you have any problem or question, ask it.
3. Comments with anchor text/Link
You might have comparable post on your blog or website as well as you would like to share the link on the comment. STOP! Don’t make that if you are not a regular commenter of that blog or website. Even a precious comment might get deleted if it contains link or anchor text.
Most of the blog or website owners don’t like links or anchor text on the comment.
Fix It- if you have good connection with the blogger or blog owner, after that you may share links on comment. But don’t build it habit. Never add an anchor text on your comment.
4. Comments without a Gravatar
Gravata allows you to show your picture on your blog or website comment. In my opinion, I don’t delete any comment just for the reason that of not having any Gravatar. However the difficulty is Akismet plugin that sometimes marks precious comment as spam.
Miserably if your comment goes to spam folder, there is a less possibility that your comment will be approved. However if you have Gravatar, blog owner will surely notice your comment on spam folder. For that reason that most of the bloggers or web owners look at a glance before deleting spam comment.
Fix It- Set a Gravatar now. It will take just 2 or 3 minute to add a picture to your each comment. It will help you to make a brand, increase traffic as well as make relationship.

5. Offensive Comments
There is nothing wrong to disagree with somebody. I truly like it if somebody corrects me. But that does not mean that I will tolerate someone who uses colloquial speech, cursing words or makes any personal assault. I will just delete the comment.
Fix it- Don’t be rude. If you don’t agree with something, say it policy as well as give strong reason.
If you are not making any above mistake but your comments don’t get approved, I would suggest you to read the comment policy of the blog or website as well as contact with the blog or web owner.
