Sunday Ramblings #3

I apologise for this being a couple of hours late, I’ve just got in from playing in my first competitive football match in months. I played in goal and only let in two goals, just in case you was wondering. 🙂

Updating comments

I have always encouraged people to comment on this blog. In order to entice you further I took the plunge over 2 years ago and turned this blog into a do-follow one. This meant you were rewarded with a back-link for leaving a comment.

Sadly this brings out the spammers in force. I have been forced to do something that I really did not want to do. I have put a requirement on the amount of comments you must drop in order for your links to be do-follow.

From now on you must leave two comments and then from there your links will become do-follow. This means if you are a spammer and only leave one comment (as most of them do) then it will be classed as no-follow until I find it and delete it.

To make it easier for you the total amount of comments you have left will appear next to your name when you leave a comment. You know, just in case you had trouble counting up to two. 😛

Listening To The Feedback

On Wednesday I published a post asking the question How Can I Improve This Blog? I was met with some very good (and some rather horrible) replies, both via the comments section and by the contact form.

One that stuck out was from a person called Alex Whalley. He suggested that I sort out the Google Adsense ads because sometimes the units were showing flashing images that were not only horrible to look at but were slowing down the blog.

I thought this was a good idea and after doing the change I have noticed a slight increase in loading time on not just this blog but my personal blog as well. I will be looking to do this with the Adbrite ads in the next couple of days or so.

  1. Thanks for the free promo man. TOTALLY appreciate it 😉

    • Absolutely no problem. As the UK supermarket Tesco likes to say “every little helps”. 😛

      Hope you won’t take this as an insult but everytime I read one of your blog posts, or see you leave a comment on this blog, I keep trying to say your name out loud. It is a real tongue twister to me. 🙂

  2. Hi Dean, yeah, having a do-follow blog can be a problem. So far, the way I’ve been handling it is to have comments on moderation if the person hasn’t commented before. I guess that’s a similar method, except it means I have to check my comment section regularly to let people’s comments out of moderation purgatory.

    Thanks for stopping through my blog and commenting, by the way! I appreciate it!

    • Hiya Theda,

      Thanks for checking my blog out. 🙂

      Yep that is exactly what I do, all comments are moderated. To be fair the comments that get through the Spam filter into the moderation folder are not spammy.

      I am trying to do this full time so checking for comments isn\’t a problem for me as I have my email client open while I\’m at the PC. 🙂

  3. “I have always encouraged people to comment on this blog” by the way i don’t see admin like you thanks for this 😉

  4. Yeah, you got mine friend. You will get more if you have commentluv enabled 🙂

  5. Try use commentluv enable and keyworl luv you will get more comment Dean.

    • I\’ve tried to install it before but for some reason there is a problem with this install of WordPress that won\’t show it properly.

      Once I work out the problem CommentLuv will be the first plugin that gets installed. 🙂

  6. Commetnluv is really one of the reasons why people want to comment…
