Well, this blog officially started a few days ago and thanks to CommentLuv Premium , the entire Red Fox Candle domain was indexed by Google within hours of launching. I completely give credit to this wonderful WordPress plugin for helping bring in our first subscribers and repeat visitors.
For those who are unfamiliar with ComLuv, it is a free WordPress plugin with a premium model as well. The free version does a good job with opening up your blog for higher quality comments, but this also entices spammers to your blog. The premium version helps to avoid this by only giving out quality links to visitors that share on other social sites, or comment multiple times (and are approved). Additionally, it includes multiple plugins in one, and has some extra automated spam deterrents built-in.
CommentLuv works by providing links to your commenter’s most recent blog posts, with the option for making them dofollow or not. This greatly increases visibility and backlinks, which helps out with SEO tremendously. Your comments on other blogs are also more likely to be approved because of the community the plugin has created. It’s really a win-win in almost every way you look at it.
So, I’d suggest that you head on over to CommentLuv and check it out. The premium version (used here) is well worth the price and it also opens your blogs up to premium features on every ComLuv enabled blog that you might comment on.
I’d be interested in how many of you have used this plugin, and would love to hear your success stories with it also.
