More fun and Benefits while commenting on SmartBloggerz!

by Sushant Risodkar · 123 comments

Comments are the one of the main deciding factor of a blog’s popularity. Thus to make Commenting on SmartBloggerz with more fun and more benefits, I have done several changes in the commenting system which I think is really gonna benefit you all a lot. I have done 3 important changes which are as follow :-

1. Comments are now DoFollow! – You read it right; I have now made all comments on this blog DoFollow which will help you boosting your PR and rankings. Thanks to the Dofollow Plugin which helped me in doing this.

2. Link to your blog article – Another change I have done is that I have enabled the popular CommentLuv feature in this blog. This enables the commenter to leave a titled link to their last post automatically whenever they comment or they can also select any other post from their blog too.

3. Add your Twitter ID – This is the last thing which I have done in the commenting system. Thanks to Andy Bailey who discovered a wonderful plugin Twitip ID. Basically this enables the commenter to add his/her Twitter ID in the “Twitter ID” field. Thus helping to boost his/her twitter followers. I am really looking forward to this plugin success.

I hope I have done some important changes in my commenting system to encourage you to comment on the article posted here plus to post comment replying to other comments of commentators.

If you wish to advice any other changes which you think is really great the do tell me by commenting below. Go have a try with this new Commenting System on SmartBloggerz.

[Update 1: One more addition to this. I have added the ability such that commentators can now edit their comments before 3 mins from the comment made so that they can correct any typo error or false sentence. Hope you like it too.] [Update 2: Gravatar Feature also enabled. If you don't have a gravatar then jump up to www.gravatar.com for more info and set up your gravatar] [Update 2: Gravatar Feature also enabled. If you don't have a gravatar then jump up to www.gravatar.com for more info and set up your gravatar] [Update 3: Ajax Edit Comments have been removed due to some problems; Now I have enabled the KeywordLuv Plugin, Enter YourName@YourKeywords in the Name field to link the keyword with your URL to take the SEO benefits of commenting on this blog.]

NOTE: You will find your comments dofollow only after you have crossed our limit of 7 comments. This will be done automatically through a plugin. This has been done to keep this blog clean and better from those one time commentators looking just for immediate backlinks.

Typhoon, thanks again, I’ll look for some plugins that do that. Does seem like i tried one but it fouled things up. Was a while back if I did..

Are there any downsides to giving dofollow. I mean it is obvious for the spam but I can smack those folks down just fine. :)

Can it hurt you to link to unrelated sites?

Typhoon October 19, 2010 at 11:34 am

Only bad websites go through the route of spam commenting and as you said you can throw away spam easily then it won’t be a problem for you..Making the comments dofollow doesn’t affects you much..atleast I haven’t noticed anything bad with my blog. Just take proper look while moderating comments.

People sometime copy-paste some text in their comments from somewhere to make it look genuine..So moderation should be done in a proper way..Rest Google will handle ;)

Actually i like this: “You will find your comments dofollow only after you have crossed our limit of 7 comments. This will be done automatically through a plugin. This has been done to keep this blog clean and better from those one time commentators looking just for immediate backlinks.”

Wil add your blog to mine google reader :-)

My question is, how valuable are blog comments for a backlink profile? And what is the effect of nofollow links? I think that Google will use this data anyway…

Typhoon December 2, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Hi Susan, blog comments are one of the top methods right now to build quality backlinks and generate traffic. Plus you also get recognized easily by commenting on different blogs.

But make sure the blogs you are commenting are dofollow if you want to improve your search rankings because nofollow links are of no use in seo.

You def make the team as far as who I follow. Very good blog, very useful information and links to things that people need, that is what it is all about. That is awesome. I been in this industry 15 years Although wordpress and blogs were not my department, I have decided now they will most definitely be a part of my site in a big way the partners of mine agree as well, We all feel the same way on this and we are working together to one common goal almost ready to launch and get underway.

Question, i see your affiliated with Host Gator as am I but I was thinking of going with media temple (mt) any thoughts on that and who do you host with? thx again mj \m/

Yes, I am using HostGator VPS, level 4. Pretty much solid. MediaTemple is good, techncrunch.com used to be hosted on it but later they got vip wordpress hosting from wordpress.com

I haven’t heard much about mediatemple from quite long..I am talking about publicity and web popularity.. Not many people (amongst small-medium size bloggers) seems to to be using that but their technology looks good and innovative.

But still I would recommend hostgator for it’s simplicity, better support and good value for money compared to media temple.

Thanks for creating such a really smart blog and to think you are only 17! Good for you Typhoon! I am starting to be a fan of your blog as I am a student concentrating on my private student loan.

Good that you’ve all these comment friendly plugins installed. I suggest you to add TwittipID field as well. That’ll make the blog more social.

Hi Sushant,

Thanks for helping your readers as they seek to get links and publicity for their blogs. We need all the help we can get!!!

James January 14, 2012 at 1:12 am

Yes, keywordluv, commentluv and dofollow make for a clean commenting system that benefits everyone, I think. People are active, but it appears less like spam. Also people are more likely to just put their name when they can do keywordluv. Seems to be working for you.

After fighting a losing battle with the spambots I had almost given up on making my blog do-follow when I came across CommentLuv. What a great plug-in! Now blog commenting really is win-win. The visitor gets a link back to their website and a plug for their blog posts which is great for page rank and generating traffic and the host gets lots of fresh content and engagement which keeps the search engines and visitors happy. What’s not to like?

I just have one question. I couldn’t see anywhere to add a Twitter ID. Is this only enabled once you have 7 approved comments?

BTW I use HostGator for hosting all my clients’ websites and I agree with everything you say – a very good service for the price and the customer support is first class.

I was not able to integrate it properly in my new theme so I just dropped the thought of adding twitter field again.

Hello Sushant

I really like your strategy to get quality comments on this blog, you made blog commenting a win/win approach now! Surely it’ll turn casual readers into regular commentators like me :)
I hope I’ll comment on every blog post which I read here(not one liners for sure!). Wish you all the best with your studies and blogging pal.
