2 Easy Steps to add a Link to your Blog Comments

blogging tips social media

I thought I would share a tip with you today that I have had to teach myself, and you may be interested in knowing about.

When I leave a comment on someone else's blog, I want it to look 'Professional' :)

What I mean by that is: a blog comment that is neat and tidy, with all the URLs included linked to the name of my blog or page I am recommending, instead of having reams and reams of link URL.

If you are like me then I hope this tip will help you also

All you need to leave links in blog comments is this code:

<a href="http://URLofyourpage.com">Title of Your Page</a>

To change this code to fit your needs you need to:
  1. Change the "Red" URL to your chosen URL
  2. Change the "Blue" Text with the title of the page you are wanting to link.
And that is it - 2 Easy steps to adding a link to your next blog comment!

This doesn't work in Google+ by the way, there you have to add the URL to the comments, the code above does not work there.

Hope this tip helps you.


  1. Hey there! Stopping by from the Blog Hop and I just liked your facebook page! Hope you'll check mine out; you can find it here:


    1. Hi Cropped Stories,
      Thanks for visiting. I have visited your page and "liked" :)

  2. I read how to do this on another blog about a month ago and have been using it since. You're right, it does look more professional. There have been a few that didn't work and it looked horrible. By the time you see it though, it is too late and has been posted. All in all though I like using it. And it is so convenient for the blog owner to find you to comment back.

    I would also add that for convenience for me, what I did was to put the code (ready to go) into a document and save it to my desktop. That way when I need it, it only takes a couple of clicks to open, copy, close, and paste to my comment, like you see below.

    1. Hi Julie,
      That is a great idea, thanks for that :)

  3. It's funny you post about this. Awhile back I checked into it too and learned how to do it, but I haven't actually done it yet! LOL Your post is reminding me that I really should try. How about with this comment? Let me give it a go.

    1. Hi Kim,
      Great it works LOL!!
