Thank me later-> Thanks the commentator, and you leave a personal touch that may get him back.
Hi, There are plugins that get people to engage in conervsations. Could you recommend a few. Thanks.
Just make your blog dofollow
I just installed Disqus for Wordpress.
As of yet no comments (because nothing much to comment on) but I do hope that it will let users feel more enclined to comment due to the simple login and it works across all Disqus enabled sites which are definately growing.
I'll have to see how it goes though.
Over the past month, and this ongoing month I have been working in increase page views for my site by whatever means. Here is a post I did on it: Turning Your Weakest Link Into a Winner!
Adding Subscribe to comments was my biggest winner last month. In regards to increasing comments you may get some follow up comments this way, so I would say good to use. For me though, it works great because it turns one time postsers/visitors into return visitors. Return visitors over time can become fans of site, are more likely to comment, and do what I wanted...increase page views.
On some of my blogs I've made them dofollow via the CommentLuv plug-in. Really easy to get going and smart forum posters know how to search for it within Google.
I really love comment luv plugin. But beware I got ban on one of my sites not cause I used do follow plugins, but because I did not take the time to visit the links which the comments pointed to. Was really a mess trying to clean it up
ouch! Good tip, I'll have to check them all.
The main issue with Comment Luv is the amount of spam that hits your blog. Lucky WordPress has a really good spam catcher.
I think RAP or reader appreciation plugins like commentluv, keywordluv and top commenters plug-in can lure a lot of comments ( and even spammers ) specially if it is dofollow. Of course, its too difficult to determine if they are commenting because they really want to not for the sake of link.
