CommentLuv: Give Your Readers Some Link Love

CommentLuvEvery blogger wants love. In the blogging world, link love refers to the Google pagerank boost a site gets when it has links to it from other, higher quality sites. In other words, when other good sites link to yours, it’s good for search engine optimization and traffic.

With CommentLuv you can hand out a good does of link love to the readers who comment on your blog. It allows them — without spamming your blog — to get a titled link back to one of their blog entries at the end of their comment. This encourages commenting and discussion.

Installing CommentLuv on your blog is easy. Just follow these steps:

Login to your Dashboard.

Click on Plugins>Add New in the left navbar.

Type CommentLuv in the search box. Click Search Plugins.

Locate CommentLuv in the results list. (It’s probably the first.)

Click on Install on the right side of that plugin row.

Click Install Now on the popup dialogue box.

After the plugin is successfully uploaded, click on Activate Plugin.

Click on Settings>CommentLuv in the left navbar. Choose the settings that you like. (I leave all the defaults except the badge I choose to display.)

Now your blog is ready to give mounds of link love to your loyal readers! And to make it even better for them, make that a dofollow link. They’ll love you for it!

Now, get some link love for your own blog!

    Hey, Selurus. I’ve been riding it for a while. Finally blogged about it after a client asked me why I had that on my comments. 🙂

    I’ve been using CommentLuv since I started blogging on the Blogging Wire. I think it’s one of my favorite plugins.

    Do you remember a few days ago or maybe a week ago, when commentluv went down? It was only down for a day, but I noticed a dip in my traffic.

    This is one of the biggest factors in my sites traffic I love it.

    Here’s my latest post thanks to commetluv!

    Alison

    Thank you kindly for using this plugin on your website. It helps both of us in the rankings and I do appreciate it.

    In your most recent post you state an important point that you must own your own blog and domain to be serious about blogging. Couldn’t agree more.

    I have used previous comment Lux, but now I like Disqus shingles because it avoids many of the errors spam and other annoyances, we can say lux is the best comment I have seen so far. so thanks your post.
