Cutie Gadget is Now Do Follow (Again)!April 12, 2008 # 7:04 am # Uncategorized # 28 Comments
Hi to all bloggers and Cutie Gadget reader,
After my blog was featured in Courtney Tuttle’s D list blogger, I have lots of comments in every post, especially the new posts. I’m quite happy back then, but then I become upset because there are lots of spammy comments in my blog. That’s it, 2 month ago, I turned off the do follow plugin and remove the do follow badge.
However, I still receive many comments in my blog, even my blog post is not worth for commenting. I see that they want the backlinks, for the only PR2 Tech and Gadget blog (was PR4 back then). As the blogger, I also know that is really hard to build backlinks. So, I just feeling guilty when I see there are still lots of comments but some of them don’t know if they are not given any backlinks anymore. And my blog are still listed in Courtney’s D-list…
Now, after consider many things, I turned the Do Follow Plugin again! *Drum Roll* Bloggers, just feel free to comment here, you will get backlinks you desired . However,I really HATE Spammy comments, so every week (or twice a week) I will sweep and delete the spammy comments but acceptable by Akismet, here is the spammy comments for me:
- Having too Many Links outside. One link at the Name field is enough! I will consider if you put another links in the comments as long it’s just ONE link and relevant both to the comments and the post
- Promotional Anchor Text at Name Field. Use you OWN NAME. Nickname is acceptable, but I really HATE it if you place the product name/ keyword as the anchor text.
- One Liner Comments. Just look spammy.
- “Me Too” Comments. Usually one liner too.
Now, as I turn the do follow plugin again, I think I have to clean up the spammy comments a little. Remember, comments are ok, and you will be rewarded by Backlinks. But Please read Cutie Gadget Guideline and don’t create another spammy comments!
