Ways For Respecting Your Beloved Commentators

Everyone loves their commentators. You, Me and All. They even comment and criticize during their busy schedule. But many bloggers never thought about giving something in return to them. That is not loyal. Commentators give suggestions, solutions, feedback and many more through their comments. That indeed makes the post or article active and boosts it. Below are some of the ways by which you can gift for your beloved and worthy commentators.

Ways For Respecting Your Commentators

1. Top Commentators Widget - shows the top commentators list in my blog’s sidebar.

2. Comment Luv Plugin – Displays their last blog posts, tweets or digg submissions in their comments which they can choose one from.

3. Sidebar Banner – A 125 x 125 banner in sidebar can be allocated for Top Commentator of the month.

You can check this here itself – Ad Slots For Top Commentators.

4. Thank Me Later – Will send thank you emails to readers after they post a comment.

5. Becoming Do Follow Friendly Comment(s) placed in a Do Follow blog will be considered as a backlink. If you love your commentators you can do the same.

6. Recent Comments Widget – Many blog owners fail to realize the importance of this. By displaying the recent comments, you indeed help them drive traffic.

7. Announcing Top Commentators – Allocate a separate post for mentioning the top commentators of the month.

For example, like this : Top Commentators Award For December 2009

8. Greeting First Time Commentators -Replace default text ‘Your comment is awaiting moderation’ with a decent welcome message greeting. This is done without using a plugin.

You should do some tweaking with the code.

9. KeywordLuv : This plugin rewards your commentators by separating their name from their keywords in the link to their website in the comments.

  7. Great List.. thanks for the mention. Found some useful Plugins here ! ;)

  8. Nice post Pradeep. Though few things I would like to add
    Thank me later plugin can create a red flag as it violates Rules of many hosting company. Because it send an Email without user performing any action. Though to keep yourself on the safer side , you can add a note above the comment box that we will send a Thank you mail…

    • Hey thanks for sharing that mate ! :)

      Actually I misunderstood about this plugin @ the beginning.. anywayz… thanks for the words ! Cheers ! :)

    • These kind of mails instead of some good intention behind, sometimes annoys the commenter. Harsh, this is really a point to be taken care of, and you gave a very good solution for this “add a note above the comment box”.

  9. Cool tips dude!
    I m loving it..I am seeing comment love plugin in many blogs these days..

  10. Ugh, I liked! So clear and positively.

  13. Hi, Where are you from? Is it a secret? :)
    Thank you

  14. No one leaves the Top Commentators and Comment Luv plugin. they are the most worth one and attracts more visitors.

  15. Everything on the list is good but don’t you think auto-mails send to thank the commentator can actually make him feel like being spammed from your blog?

    • Yes Rishi.. I agree with you…

      A major disadvantage with it. But quite a useful plugin. Since the commentator won’t think he is “lone” and author assures him that he will reply soon .. :D

  16. I use most all of the plugins you mentioned on my site, and the response I have gotten with comments is phenomenal! Genuine comments too, not one liner crap, my readers are passionate about their comments!

  17. After leaving a comment on a blog yesterday and being chastised for my opinion, your quote, “Commentators give suggestions, solutions, feedback and many more through their comments. That indeed makes the post or article active and boosts it.” is actually the essence of a blog. Depsite a person’s unfavorable view, it should be respected and playing devil’s advocate is not always a bad thing. Thanks for reading.

  18. All are some nice idea to reward to commentators, I have put top commentators widget on my blog to reward to my top commentators.

  19. Ya this is really good idea. I will try it on my blog :)
