Should My Blog Or Article Be Open For Comments

by Terry Warner My Leads Call Me

Writing a blog or article every day takes planning and forethought as well as copy writing skills. It isn’t easy to write every single day and stay on subject. Some days your copy writing will flow easily and everyone will be pleased. Some days your article will miss the target audience and lack appeal.

Allowing comments for a blog or article takes certain extra steps than not allowing comments. In other words, writing to allow for comments means you will have to monitor the blog or article for lewd and uncomplimentary remarks.

Make sure you personally approve all comments so web bots and crawlers don’t link your article to porn sites or make nasty comments. If it is a criticism, delete it. This is your article/blog and you alone regulate the comments.

It is not open for discussion or critique, it is strictly being allowed so others can confirm  your expertise. It is not for the purpose of showing the readers that you can handle critique or criticism but comments are allowed only to buttress your article and subject.

For a long time I didn’t allow any comments to be made on my article writing. I then opened comment section up and at first had very many porn and web bots filling in junk. It would sound real nice but wouldn’t make any sense. I was really impressed that so many people were reading my blog.

After doing some research and back tracking the links, I found out I was being taken advantage of and I was driving undesirable traffic to my web site. Undesirable traffic that was making my web page rank lower than normal.

I added a plug in that made the person entering the comments type in a simpler but moving captcha. This eliminated the bots and then I still approved the comment.

In that case, should my article be open for comments? Actually, yes it should. Opening your article for comments helps your article get noticed more quickly, more exposure, and advertises you as an expert.

The same would apply to your blog. Open the blog up for comments and then pick and choose the comments that advertise and show off your expertise.

Good writing,
