KeywordLuv Installed – Happy Commenting!

KeywordLuv - Spreading Luv

KeywordLuv - Spreading Luv

This is just to let all of my readers and commentators know that I have now also KeywordLuv installed on my blog. I had been thinking about it for a while, but as I do want to encourage the interaction with you all, I decided it will be well worth it.

KeywordLuv will reward all of you who leave a comment on my blog by separating your name from your keywords in the link to your website, giving you improved anchor text. Like, when you leave a comment now, you can do so by putting down, for example,

[email protected] lists”

and this will then anchor your site to the keywords you have picked, in this case to “building lists“, which will work well for any search engine optimization you are doing for certain keywords.

As you might remember, on this site I have also installed

  • the Top Commentator widget, which will list the most active commentators in my sidebar, giving them a valuable do-follow backlink from each page within my blog
  • CommentLuv, which will show a commentators last blog post with every comment
  • and best of all, the DoFollow plugin, which means that all the links that are on my site from commentators are now being followed by the search engines!

I actually noticed today when I installed it that on my earlier post about dofollow and commentluv that I had promised to install KeywordLuv within the next few days, and now look at me! Shame on me! – But I guess what’s in my favor is that I at least did it now… 😉

So, all that’s left for me to say is “please leave some comments here” and you will be doing some very active SEO!

  1. Hi Petra

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and casting your vote. I was leaning towards that one also and it is always good to get opinions from other people. I like the information about your plugins and I am going to enhance my site with them also.

    I am curious about your header picture. Is that where you live or where you would like to live? My wife and I live in Puerto Rico so we live like that picture.

    Have a good one.

    Great post, haven’t used the keyword luv plugin as yet myself so would be interested in the feedback as I know some of the fellow students have had good feedback from adding it.

    Have a great weekend

    Hey Petra,
    It’s refreshing to see someone actually post about the inner workings of their blog, and why they put certain plugins.

    And as for the explanations of it all, you’re clearly SEO oriented and know what’s what.

    Thanks for this wonderfull post

  6. Hey Petra,

    I’ve just actually noticed that my comment luv feed isn’t working properly, so I’m going have to check that out.

    You’ve highlighted some really great looking plugins here, so I’ll be checking them out too.

    Thanks Petra and keep in touch,

    Andrew.

    Hi Petra,

    I didn’t realize that comments were automatically no follow. Show’s how much I have to learn about WordPress 😉 I just downloaded the dofollow plug in and installed it to my blog.

    Thanks! Heidi

      @Heidi, I still discover new things about WordPress all the time, and it is so great to work with it and make your blog better all the time! :) Good on you for taking the plunge and making your blog dofollow, I might have to stop by and leave a comment!

    Hi Petra,

    Thanks for sharing. This sounds like an interesting concept about keywords related to our name.

    And thanks heaps for the Do Follow plugin……..I never knew that the comments were set at No Follow before……

    Hi Petra,

    I have found a plugin that I like that compliments KeywordLuv as well as rewarding your visitors that comment regularly.

    If you do a search for Lucia’s Link Love you will find a WordPress Plugin that allows you to set the number of comments someone must leave before they are rewarded with the dofollow attribute.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Karl

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Karl, thanks for sharing that particular plugin! Sounds quite interesting. For the time being I will leave the dofollow attribute for every commentator, though :)

  10. tank says:

    i just knew, and install commentluv too. thx
    mm.. can commentluv join with lucia link love?

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @tank, I don’t see why not! I just think that if you use Lucia Link Love, don’t install the “normal” dofollow plugin. – That’s just what I think, though, does anybody know for sure?

  11. Stefan says:

    Good choice Petra. Now I would just like you to add threaded comments as well and this would be perfect. :)

      @Stefan, you got me there. What are “threaded” comments (I might look stupid here, but I really would like to know!)

  12. Matt says:

    Hi Petra,

    Great to see more and more people casting vote for dofollow and encouraging quality commenting. It is not up to Google to determine the quality, it is up to the bloggers! I’m promoting the same concept with my blog for the Blogger Bloggers. Greetings, Matt

    Hi Petra,

    this is the first time I have visited your blog and I must say I have learnt a heap of stuff about plug ins already!!

    I will definitely be back! 😀 I am one of John Thornhill’s coaching students.

    Thank you for the information I am looking forward to coming back and spending some time reading.

    Kind Regards

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Hi Jacinta, welcome to my blog! I checked out yours and I like it! You are doing great – I think you got into John’s coaching the time he opened it after i was in, because all the later students got all these nice headers, which we didn’t have yet :( Hope you are doing good with the program, I have pretty much finished with it and moved on to other things, but I have learned so much through John, he has really guided me on the right path! I would love you to come back and read a bit more! :)

  15. Stefan says:

    @Petra: No, problem. Most of the blogs are still not using threaded comments. If you have a look at my site you will see a “reply”-button beneath every post. When you press this button your comment will be placed just beneath the comment you answered instead of at the bottom.

    You can change it under:
    Settings -> Discussion -> “Enable threaded (nested) comments”

    Hi Petra,

    What a great way to lead into my comment, first thanks for installing Keyword Luv. I may look into using it on my blog. Next YOU HAVE BEEN TAGGED!!! See Gary Simpson’s post on the forun here:

    You can see the 25 things I have revealed about myself on my blog, geneilten.com.

    This sounded like something fun and I hope you will participate (no this is not some scheme).

    All the best,

    Hi Gene, uuuuuh – 25 things about myself? Of course I am going to participate 😉 sound like a whole heap of fun!!! BTW, I cannot find your post on your blog? – Thanks for tagging me!!

  18. Gene says:

    Hi Petra,

    You have discovered the 27th thing about me. I am sometimes absent-minded. (It’s because I’m old) I realized this morning (and with fingers crossed) that I had forgotten to publish the post after loading it on my blog. I wanted to contact my “tagged” people before it went live and then I went and forgot to make it live. It is there now, so you can see the real (embarrassed) me.

    Thanks.

      @Gene, gee, I am glad I am not the only one! You wouldn’t believe how many things slip my mind! :( Well, I shall head over and have a read now hehe….

  19. Rob Canyon says:

    Petra,

    Been reading you dofollow post and still am undecided, then came along this one.

    Another I’ve been thinking about… If I can get my head around it that is.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Rob

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Rob, I was like that for a long time, just couldn’t decide. Because you hear so many things about it taking away “link juice” from your site etc. But I believe that at the end of the day it is all about interaction with your readers, and I do believe in the term “give and you will receive”…. so don’t think about it too long, just do it. :)

  20. Codey says:

    Hi Petra Weiss

    I would just like to say this is one of the best plugins for wordpress as I’ve recently just installed it on my blog aswell you can check it out and get some more link link luv from me aswell. I thing This linkluv strategy is good because not every marketer is doing this their still too busy about building links from only one source like Social bookmarking, I think a better solution for long term desired results would be to go for Quality over Quantity of links and mix it up a little what do I mean by this? I mean Variety of Inbound links to your site not just top comments keword luv etc but also social bookmarking, videos and other relevant sites… etc What do you thing could you elaborate on some of these linking methods some more maybe in some of your future posts. Also stop by on my blog for more Link luv I love to share 😉

  21. Tony says:

    Have you noticed an increase in the number of comments since installed KeywordLuv? I’ve been considering using it on a blog I own and need some honest feedback.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Tony, as I said before, I haven’t seen a big increase yet, but I am getting a few more than before. And it’s on the up! I think as long as you can handle it (the spam and replying to the comments), I like to keep it to be able to give something back to my readers. I like it.

  22. Mike says:

    Hope you don’t mind me going a little off topic, but I was curious as to what extent you have found keywordluv has helped you get more comments…and if they are good comments or just thank you for the post type comments. I found when using this plugin I got a whole heap of “Thanks” type rubbish which didn’t add to my blog at all…it sure did get a lot more people making comments though!

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Mike, I haven’t seen a really significant jump in comments yet, they have gotten a bit more steady, and so far I haven’t had too many spammers yet. Usually they are quite good comments. But we will see how things develop!

  23. I have also installed the do-follow plugin on one of my blogs. But then suddenly I noticed a huge spike in the number of comments and most of them were spammy like “congratulations!”, “good post”, etc. Finally I had to remove the do-follow plugin to stop this spam!!! ;-(

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Dave Richards, I don’t like it either when people use your blog like that. Tank God it hasn’t happened here yet. I just manually approve all comments.

  24. Abu Baitcast says:

    A few weeks ago I found your blog and have been following along quietly. I felt I could give my first comment. Im not sure what to write but that Ive loved reading. Cool website. I intend to continue coming to this website now and again. I have also subscribed to your rss feed for updates.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Abu, thanks so much! I am very happy that I could provide you with interesting content and that you like my blog so much! :) I wish you lots of luck with your site, too!

  25. A few days ago I discovered this website and have been reading along quietly. I decided I should write my opening comment. I dont know exactly what to say except that Ive really enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I intend to keep coming to this site very often. I have also got your feed to get updates.

  26. Victor says:

    What if I tell you, I’m just coming across the term “KeywordLuv” today? After reading this post, I’m of the opinion that that is a cool one.

  27. Vance says:

    Hi Petra,

    Keyword Luv is fantastic. Where did you get the plug in? I’m thinking about getting it but it doesn’t seem to come up in Word Press search box.

    Comment Luv and Top Commentators plug ins are great too and I use them.

    I’m a bit confused about the Do Follow. Some people who have it complain of spam but i think that you still are able to approve the comments before they show up so that should solve it.

    Certainly having a Do Follow plug in will likely increase the amount of comments you get.

    Great information about “KeywordLuv” . i really like this. Thanks for sharing.

  30. I wish I could find the time to write consistantly at my blog, on a day to day basis, like you do. Nicely done! I look forward to your additional article.

  31. George says:

    I’ve been following your articles for some time now. They are really great, and interesting reads. By the way, absolutely love KeywordLuv!

  32. David says:

    Good article here and I’m very glad to see you’ve put KeywordLuv to use!

  33. Instead of posting a lot in No-follow blogs and wasting time. We can post in Do-follow blogs,especially with comment luv. It really helps a lot in bringing traffic.

  34. James says:

    This is very cool :)

    I think that it is a great decision by you… I strongly support keywordluv and it brings me lots of quality comments on my blog…

    Other people that are worried about spam probably do not have the time to clear it out, but even if you don’t install it you will get spam anyways from my experience… especially from bots…

  35. Mack says:

    Petra, in addition to those benefits of this plug in, I find it easy to address my blogs visitors. Earlier I have to reply to hi “cool t shirts”, hi “florida clinic”… I know its kinda weird but with keywordluv I dont have that problem anymore besides I can give them a keyword if they make a good comment and not a me too run off a mill. I am sure your orientation to SERP would have been improved by this time. keep you posted.

    Hey petra, seems that installing keywordluv has paid off very well. Many of my friends are bragging that their traffic increased drastically after installing keywordluv and commentluv plugins. This is luring me change my CMS tool to wordpress. I would like to know about the moderation time you spend on this blog. I am sure spammers would recklessly exploit this wonderful tool. So have to think about the time I am going to spend on this before I actually go for it.

  40. I’ve been using keywordluv as my plug in and it has been doing well. It did increase the number of traffics and been getting sensible comments. But still, there are those taking advantage of back links and are making remarks not related to the posts.

  41. Mike says:

    Encouraging more comments is a good thing if you focus on the social value of your blog…i.e. if you want to be an A list blogger…but for SEO sorts it doesn’t really make a difference. Still it’s nice to offer those leaving comments a reward.

  42. Nice looking blog, have you noticed an increase in the number of comments since installed KeywordLuv? I’ve been considering using it on a blog I own and need some honest feedback.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Superhero, I do get lots more comments, and also more spam comments, but they get pretty much taken care of by Akismet.

  43. Michael says:

    Petra, thanks for joining the dofollow movement and implementing these amazing plugins for the visitors benefit. I have been thinking on adding a blog to our website. Right now we dont use any cms tool, but i am sure i will pick wordpress just for these plugins :)

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Michael, you have a great looking website! If I ever get to NZ, I will have to stop by it looks very nice!

    As another blog owner, I very much appreciate

    Keywordluv is a great plugin. It’s very useful and becuase of the plugin you’ll get even more comments. The only problem is that you should be careful about getting too much spam.
