Comment Luv

I’m testing two new features today designed to encourage and reward comments.

  • The “Comment Luv” plugin will display a link to your latest blog post when you comment, it slows down the comment posting a few seconds but gives readers more incentive to click back through to your blog. Leave a comment on this post to give it a try.
  • Top Commentators for the current month are now displayed in the sidebar. It won’t bring a rush of traffic, but it lets people know who is active in the Said at Southern community.

    Interesting, I will have to give it a try – is it wordpress only?

  12. Tony Kummer says:

    There may be an equivalent for blogger in about 10 years. I’m not sure about typepad or droopal.

  13. Shouldn’t you test them one at a time to see which is more effective? Then you could even do a comparison.

  14. Tony Kummer says:

    yes and no.

    I was sure I’d like the most comments feature, and was just testing comment luv to see if it was annoying

  15. Pretty cool plugin, does this thing pull latest entry info from the “website” field in the comment?

  16. Tony Kummer says:

    The plugin checks your site for a feed and tries to pull its last entry. It seems to pick up most of the feeds, but not everyone is supported.

    It’s been fun and I think it does encourage comments and people checking out new blogs.
