The desire to be heard is a basic human characteristic. People want to influence others, to get attention and to develop conversations with those who share the same interests and passions. When applied to the internet, users like other people to read their opinions, ideas, critics, jokes and remarks, and they are more likely to return to a site that provides them with a simple opportunity to do so.

The majority of blogpost and articles published online has already acknowledged the value of having a comment section attached. Currently, most WordPress themes include a comment plugin by default; however, notifications of new comments are only sent to the author of the post.

Nowadays, commenting has taken another step forward thanks to the comment notification plugins for WordPress. Users may not only leave comments, but they can also get e-mail notifications when other users reply to their comments. When a visitor submits a respond to another user’s comment, an e-mail is sent to notify the original commenter. These comment notification plugins allow visitors to follow up comments and to promote conversations on your site. It is one of the most efficient and simplest ways to engage your users and develop long lasting relationships with them.

    I want a simple system by which whenever I approve & reply the comment made on my Blog; the Commenter gets a notification in his email address.

    And this too , I DO NOT want him to login (which he does not need to at present) or even select an option to subscribe to.
