Don’t Miss Out On The Next CommentLuv Premium Launch!

So, you missed the first release of CommentLuv Premium and you’re kicking yourself for it because it was such a sweet deal. To those of you who paid attention to my many posts promoting it and our now proud owners of what is a great plugin I congratulate you on your wise decision.

To the rest I am happy to report CommentLuv Premium is about to go into Launch mode very, very soon and you don’t want to miss out again! OK, it’s going to cost you that little bit more but there is still going to be massive savings for all those bloggers who have more than one blog because it’s only going to set you back $67 for the unlimited license! This will revert later to a single license meaning that you will have to pay $67 for each blog. Even if you only have one b log it’s best to get it now because you never know when you will want to start another one.

So, let’s have another look at all the reasons why you should be adding this plugin to your blogging arsenal.

What CommentLuv Premium Has To Offer

  • Advanced control of dofollow and 10 last posts
    It is going to allow you to set rules so instead of requiring people to register to get the goodies, you can set it to give it to anyone that has made X number of comments.
  • Unlock advanced features on EVERY CommentLuv blog
    Being premium means you don’t have to register anywhere, you get up to 15 last posts to choose from on EVERY blog that has CommentLuv. Now you all know how many people use CommentLuv so this is a really important feature.
  • Static Links
    If you have links that you would like to use again and again or pages that you’d like to include in your returned list of posts then you can with this feature! This is basically where you get the additional 5 extra links from. You get to choose 5 post or pages of your choice and they can be the ones that promote a particular affiliate or even link to your Sales or Squeeze pages.
  • Integrated anti-spam
    New and improved anti-spambot protection without the need for your readers to fill in a CAPTCHA or even check a checkbox! Also, trackback validation!
  • Stats for clicks on your links
    See what links of yours are getting clicked and where
  • Enhanced information panel
    Set your information on your own blog and your info panel updates on every single blog that has one of your links showing (including a list of other posts you have on your site)
  • Advanced instructions with video on the membership site
    Every section of the plugin has it’s own video to show you exactly what you need to do to set it up for your site.

Now, that’s not me making it all up either. That’s right from one of Andy’s pages, except for the ones highlighted in red which I’ve added to highlight some basic points.

CommentLuv Premium’s Great SEO Benefit

I can just hear all those SEO Gurus shaking their heads in disbelief saying that there is no SEO benefit in leaving comments on blog but we all know better don’t we? I can tell you without any doubt that commenting was the main reason why my Buy Online Lottery Tickets is on page one of Google!

How many of you have been disappointed when the post you most wanted to link to via CommentLuv was no longer available because it had gone beyond the 10 posts you’re allowed to link to? Well, as a premium member that is a thing of the past and it was what initially sold me on the premium plugin.

Once a member thought I saw another really important feature one that went unnoticed until I was playing around with CommentLuv Premiums settings.

The images you see over there on the right shows you what happens when someone hovers over the heart that’s at the very end of the CommentLuv link. The top one is from a comment I left that linked to this blog and the bottom on is from one linking to my Lottery blog. Clicking on them will give you a bigger image.

What you see is that unlike the regular CommentLuv you can now have your very own sales copy promoting your blog complete with links, Notice also that those extra five links that you’ve configured, you know the ones that point to your sales pages or those posts promoting your favourite affiliates, appear at the very bottom. It would be great if those links would appear to the search engines but unfortunately that’s not the case. Still, search engines don’t buy from you, people do and this is a great way to get you or your products out there.

Whatever you do don’t wait to the last minute because there is every chance you will forget and miss out once again. Head on over to the Andy’s CommentLuv page and enter your email address so that Andy can notify you when the CommentLuv Premium is available. Andy being who he is will also be offering those who register their intent a great free report.

Teaching People The Proper Way To Comment

Most people probably don’t realize this but there was a time when I was studying to be a teacher and I only had a semester to complete to get my degree before I gave it all away. There were many reasons for this but the main reason was I discovered near the end that I didn’t have a passion for it and so I decided I would be doing all those kids a disservice were I to continue on.

Now seeing as how I have all that experience I wondered if I could use it to teach people the proper way to comment on a blog. I know there are a whole lot of posts out there that have tried to educate people the proper way to leave a comment, I even wrote one myself called Commenting 101 Important Rules For 2009, yet even with this wealth of information I find there’s a lot of people out there who just don’t get it.

Perhaps they think they understand the proper technique but for some reason they’ve missed some vital point, and so they continue to leave comments that can be so bad some people interpret it as spam and send them to Akismet Hell.

I’m hoping this post will solve that problem and the way I’m hoping to do that is by grading every comment out of 10. That means that I will allow all comments, even the spam ones, and with each grade I will give a reason as to why they got that score.

A warning though, even though I will leave comments that I would normally delete or spam I will remove the url. So, what are some of the things that will cause points to be deducted?

  1. Comments that do not follow the Comment Policy!
  2. Poor grammar, which includes being too slack to use capitals and punctuation. I will make special consideration for those to whom English is a second language.
  3. If I feel your comment has nothing to do with the post, by which I mean you probably didn’t read it.
  4. If I feel you didn’t put any effort or thought into your comment.
  5. All spam comments will obviously receive a score of ZERO

OK, I may add to that list if anything else comes to mind. I reckon it will be very interesting to see what sort of comments this post will solicit. Be warned that I will not hold back because I’m not one who believes being soft on students is a good tactic, and certainly doesn’t teach them anything. :devil_tb:

You may want to tweet this post so it will get maximum exposure.

How To Deal With Rude And Obnoxious Commentators

It’s unfortunate, but every now and again we, as bloggers, will have some moron visit our blog that may take exception to what we wrote and then think that he has the right to abuse the crap out of us. There are some bloggers who may retaliate in kind but I think that this is the wrong approach as it merely brings us down to their level.

Take for example this particular post, that I did on one of my other blogs. It was obvious that this bloke was a racist pig and that I could have easily have retaliated, but if I did I would have merely added fuel to the fire. There was no way I was going to sway his opinions and it would have been a wast of time trying. If anything I reckon that being diplomatic about it actually infuriated him even more.

So, how do we treat these poor misbegotten slime balls that choose to flame our posts?

  1. Analyze the comment.  Does it deserve to see the light of day? You may decide that it doesn’t add anything to your post and that it is so obnoxious your only recourse is to delete it. I actually deleted a whole heap of that particular commentator’s comments.
  2. Do not respond in kind. That is one advantage of being a blogger, you can actually take the time to take a few breaths and calm down before responding to their comment.
  3. Be polite, civil and respectful. They may not deserve it, but it shows that you are bigger than they are. Perhaps they will calm down and put their argument, although I doubt it, in a more reasonable manner in which case you’ve shown that your course of action was the right one.
  4. Get Support. See if you can drum up some bloggers who support your view. Their comments may show the obnoxious commentator that he is actually in a minority causing them to rethink their views.
  5. Ban The Ass Hole. If all else fails and they continue to be a virtual pain in the ass, ban his IP address.

I reckon that some of you guys may have come up with some pretty cool ways of dealing with flaming jerks, and if this is so I would really appreciate some comments as others may find them very helpful.
