One of the more interesting things on the Internet to build friends, relationships and customers is the ability to leave comments on others people's website profiles. Back in the old days of the Internet there was little interaction between people on the web (besides chatrooms). Now you have the chance to learn all about people from all the world and ask question and start a dialogue with them. This is your chance to network with like minded people for free.
You can share ideas and art techniques with your peers, help answer questions for the novice visitor and just tell people how much you like their work. The biggest value for leaving comments are the links you leave back to your websites. Search engines love incoming links to your site when determining what position they are going to give you. Links in comments also drive targeted traffic to your website. When looking at statistic programs connected to your site, you'll quickly see just how many visitors arrive at your website from comments.
Where are the best places to leave comments? The first and easiest are other blogs. If you are just starting out, most art blogs will have more traffic than yours...maybe a ton more! You can benefit from their hard work by leaving a comment and driving big traffic to your site. Other high traffic sites to leave a comment are YouTube videos with high viewership, Facebook walls, retweeting people's tweets, art forums and social networking groups. Sometimes a website will even have the ability to leave a comment or start a discussion. With the proper training and guidance you can drive a ton of targeted traffic to your website even if you're just starting out.
