Spreading a little Commentluv between home workers

Spreading a little Commentluv between home workersMy partner and IT adviser A is always spotting new ways to improve our blogs and on his suggestion I’m trying out Commentluv. (I know the name alone will offend those of you who, like me, try to maintain standards of spelling and grammar in the face of the txting masses, but let’s try to put that to one side!)

The good thing about Commentluv is that it allows you to link to a post on your site when you leave a comment on mine and add my post to Google+, like it on Facebook or tweet the link.

So you are adding to your backlinks, which helps with your SEO, especially as this blog has a Page Rank of 4 (and rising!) Other visitors might check out your blog for themselves, especially if the selected post is related. So you benefit both from improved SEO and from extra visitors.

There are 3 boxes to fill in with your name, email address and website (put ‘http://’ in front). You type your comment in the large box as usual, click on the title of the post you want to link to, check the box to confirm you’re not a spammer (the cheek) and post the comment.

Underneath your comment is an invitation to read your selected post, next to a little red (luv?) heart. Hover over the heart and a box appears with links to more of your posts. There are other features too, but I think that’s quite enough to get your head round to start with.

Confused? Check out A’s post about Commentluv and have a look at the comments beneath before you have a bash yourself. And of course let me know if you luv it, or not.
