For the second installment of this series, I will point out that this blog uses CommentLuv which fetches your latest blog posts and displays it at the bottom of your comment..Which is some great promotion for your time and opinion. The second plugin that will be featured today is Comment Relish. What this plugin does is after you comment on this blog, It will email you and send my thanks in the form of a email!
So the first plugin, CommentLuv is available here and is installed as every other plugin is. The second plugin, Comment Relish is available here and needs some customization before you can use it. You can access the options of it by going to the “Plugins” menu and finding the “Comment Relish” tab. Then you can customize your message that you send.
The benefits to using the Comment Relish is that you will make the reader feel appreciated and more likely to come back if you send them a email. It’s always nice to see, “Thanks!” for a subject of an email in your inbox. This will probably remind them of your blog and will make them come back.
The benefits to using the CommentLuv is self-explanatory. People aren’t likely to do something if people don’t give something in return. This plugin is that one extra step that will encourage them to comment.. Who doesn’t like seeing their posts on someone else’s blog?
These two plugins are recommended for WordPress blogs. Although not necessary to gain search engine hits, it would be beneficial to any person that wants to comment on your blog… Therefore gaining your more comments..which is crucial for blog success!
