Content Marketing – Commenting Policy for the Article Writing Doctor

The right way to comment on blog posts.This is an impromptu post created because of spam comment.

Lately, I’ve been getting more active on Twitter and it’s bringing more visibility to the posts here. I think as a result, each day I get several or more spam comments. These comments are easy to spot because the commenter inputs his URL in the body or end of the comment.

And, what make it worse is I know the commenter hasn’t taken the time to read the post because the comments are all generic. In other words, they don’t mention the post itself. They say something like: “Great post. So, glad I found this site. Will bookmark it and be back often.”

There’s no mention of what the post is about.

NOT COOL.

This isn’t a good idea for 3 reasons:

1. Your URL is already in your WordPress tag or other tool your commenting with.

2. As a blog owner, I know Google frowns on this particular practice.

3. I delete all comments with clickable URLs within them.

HOW TO GET YOUR COMMENT TO BE APPROVED HERE AT THE ARTICLE WRITING DOCTOR

1. Actually read the post.

2. Leave a comment that is related to the post.

3. Don’t include a clickable URL within the comment.

Happy content marketing,

Karen
