When running a blog, you probably count on some feedback from your readers (comments on the blog). Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Recently doing a survey about our blog, I was surprised how many people indicated that they never comment on posts. Is it worth paying so much attention to the number of comments? Or maybe only the blog Author pays so much attention to this?
The number of comments equals the number of blog views
The number of comments does not translate in any way into the number of views of the blog. In most cases, the number of views is much higher than the comments. People rarely comment on posts because they either have nothing to say about the topic or they just don't want to.
There used to be a very important number of comments under a post for me, today I don't pay so much attention to her. Which does not mean that I do not like when someone comments - quite the opposite. I really like reading readers' comments and responding to them. Comments are one form of communication with Readers. So let's reply to comments that require this answer.
Is it worth letting anonymous comment?
For many years I thought that thanks to the possibility of commenting by anonymous we will have more comments. I have always explained it to myself that not everyone has to have a Google account or any other account, and will want to intelligently comment on the post. Unfortunately, it was different. In our case, anonymous comments often translated into hate, which was rarely supported by any reasonable argument.
The golden rule - if you have something wise to say - talk, if not - keep quiet.
In addition, there were also comments written by emissaries of various companies in a cheap way to promote their services or products. Although the free advertisement was mostly deleted - at some point it just became bothersome and began to take too much time.
We have opted out of this option for some time, and spam and anonymous hatred have ended. Valuable comments began to appear from people who are not ashamed to sign their statements. For now, we have peace of mind with this topic.
Comment - a simple way to self-promote your blog
It may surprise you, but the comment is a very good self-promotion of your blog. Of course, I do not mean comments like "cool blog + link to your blog" or "Super post, look at my blog click". Such comments are immediately removed from us, so there is no point in bothering to leave them.
I mean sharing on other blogs. Taking part in discussions, writing smart things, showing interest in a topic can make this comment intrigue and someone will want to see what else wise you have to say on your blog. The golden rule - if you have something wise to say, say it, if not - keep quiet. And stick to it, and the comments "cool blog, click" better forgive yourself. You certainly won't interest anyone with such comments, but rather upset you 😉
How to link in a blog comment (blogspot)
Not everyone knows that you can paste a clickable link in a comment. It is very simple. All you have to do is paste <a href=apellinkapel> text </a>
In the place of the "link" paste the address together with http: // in the place of the "text" paste the name to the link, e.g. a post about healthy eating
An example link will look like this:
<a href=utajhttp://www.dpblog.pl/search/label/Rozw%C3%B3j%20personal> Personal development </a>
