Comments on blogs are now harshly viewed, both article writers and readers see comments as spam traffic.
I’m not really going to say no to that, since a lot of advertising is being done through blog comments, but not all comments are spam and that’s why bloggers have to be extra careful and embrace the contributing relevant comments and I personally disagree with the ‘NoFollow’ tag on the commentator’s website link.
I feel that a DoFollow link towards their website is a normal way to appreciate their contribution for commenting on articles and it’s the article author’s job to check whether the comments are content related and help the on-going subject.
I’ll have to, however, be reasonable and understand those who choose not to share their search engine page importance so they can offer better advertising juice, but I, for one, am not looking to win anything from this blog.
With that in mind, just wanted to announce that my blog is NoFollow free and I also installed the fantastic ComLuv Plugin which identifies whether your URL is a blog and it will add a second link towards the blog’s last published article.
I do however, ask you to be on topic when commenting and avoid leaving 2 words comments (i.e. Great article.), or auto-generated non-sense messages.
Your comments and any other kind of feedback is highly appreciated!
