I joined the Do Follow blog roll awhile back, and was excited to be a part of a great concept. Until the comment spammers started. These are the people that join, just to get the link juice, but don’t truly give back. Sure, they visit your blog, but usually if you read their comment, it is abundantly obvious that they did not read your blog! They did it to get the link. Quite annoying and until now, the only thing you could do, was delete the comment if you didn’t want it there.
Now there’sin. It’s sooo cool. I just installed it and I am looking forward to seeing it in action.
It has a lot of great features.
It allows your regular readers to comment and get the good links back, because you are able to set how many comments a reader must place before they can get the link back. To me, a good deal.
It will encourage those who are truly interested in your blog to return again and again, encouraging links, as well as regular readers. Who wants to visit a boring blog 5 times just to get a Do Follow? Plus, it will hopefully encourage link exchanges between your regular readers and yourself, to get the word out there about the different blogs amongst new readers.
Makes you feel safer. It’s nice not having to worry about what types of comments are coming through. There is a safety feature in place that Dofollows will not be added to comments left more than 14 days after you published your most recent post. That in itself is cool if you have to be on a vacation or are away from the blogging world for any more than 2 weeks.
Long names? A title stuffed with SEO terms? Yep, you can refuse to give “dofollows” to names that contain too many characters. You know the type, the ones who’s name is “sapphire diamond pendants”? Sure.it.is!
It doesn’t change anything you already use. You can still use Akismet, delete a comment, name or URL, etc. Plus, if you don’t want to delete anything, you now will have control over allowing or disallowing the “dofollow” link they would get.
Go get right now. I’m sure you will be glad you did.
