In the comment section on this blog, you will notice that every person who contributes a comment and types the blog URL into the website field receives a link to his or her latest blog post subsequent to the comment. By way of example on a recent article about the importance of writing Twitter messages manually, you will see the following comment by Chris Apple:
The leading text underneath his comment and the accompanying link are generated by a WordPress plugin called CommentLuv.
Registered CommentLuv users (and if you have a blog it is a no-brainer to register and sign-up), upon entering their blog URL into the website field will see an automatically-generated drop-down list of their last 10 blog posts. Unregistered users get no list and only their latest post is displayed.
There is a reason why you’d want to register your blog because on a blog article such as this one about a blog plugin, what if one of your last 10 articles was about a different plugin? That would be a contextual and relevant link that you could choose to be displayed with your comment. If you are unregistered then your irrelevant blog post might show instead.
All CommentLuv-powered blogs display a heart-like box in the vicinity of the comment submission button to let you know the plugin is installed. CommentLuv-registered bloggers also enjoy commenting on each other’s blogs because of the potential of inbound traffic.
Between CommentLuv and KeywordLuv, another blog promotion plugin, you will never second guess yourself again whether someone clicks to your blog — because you are telling the person with KeywordLuv what specifically your blog is about and you are telling the person with CommentLuv which of your last 10 posts you want that person to click.
If you are a blogger — whether you use WordPress, Blogspot, Typepad, or another platform — what are you waiting for? Install CommentLuv on your own blog and pass on the love to your commentators, too!
CommentLuv is not paying me to write this. I’m paying them.
