Blog comments are incredibly good for SEO, but difficult to come by. Even if you have a ton of quality content, you may not be racking up the comments that you deserve. Because of that, you may be looking for a way to automatically generate comments for a WordPress post.
The benefit of having comments on WordPress posts is twofold. First, you establish credibility with new visitors and readers. Because there are already comments there, these new readers are encouraged to leave one of their own. If you're trying to sell products, establishing this credibility is a good thing to do (though as an agency, we don't recommend fake social proof -- it always comes back to bite you).
Your second benefit is with Google. Comments on your own site add to the content length, and they also show that readers are engaged. Neil Patel did a study where he turned comments on, and he turned comments off on various posts. the post with comments enabled ranked higher and drove more traffic to his sites when compared to the post without comments.
Also, spam comments don't count for this. You need high quality, well written comments.
But here's the issue. If you're just a random website, it may be difficult to get comments on Your posts. This is especially true if you are being barraged by spam comments, and need to manually approve them, incorporate a reCAPTCHA, or require an email for comment submission.
Of course, you can always create tons of accounts and manually post comments on your WordPress posts, but that takes a lot of time and the payoff simply isn't there.
