    Make the posts useful, interesting and informative.

    You could also from time to time, mention that comments / feedback is welcome, but don't appear needy by doing it on every post.

    Content that's worth commenting on is a good start, but also a popular comment system is a good idea, one that doesn't require the user to jump through hoops to make a quick comment. For example a Facebook comment system, the user only needs to be signed into Facebook to make a comment on your posts. But the negative of this is that some may not comment because random people can see their profile image etc.

    Put a question in the content at the end - something like "I've said my piece on the matter now how do YOU feel about it? Comment below!".

    Easy peasy.

    some blogs have prize draws for most comments. You could have a comments league table and the one that has the most at the end of each month gets a prize.
    Another way is to fake the comments to start off, once people see comments they follow and comment. Nothing worse than posts with no comments

    to be frank, readers rarely will comment on website now a days.... More on youtube you can see lots of comment for FB wise depend the content.

    If there is , more like trying to back link back to their website or promoting related niche under the comment.

    Blog posts that are well written, informative, and not boring are the blog posts that tends to receive a huge number of comments. Polish the way you write, make it simple yet astounding and unique, then you're good to go. :cheerlead

    Always make the first 1 or 2 comments yourself and make them really obnoxious so people would reply to that comment/comments. A re-design of the comment section wouldn't hurt if it can be improved.
