If you have a well-established blog with lots of activity and thousands of visitors every day, I would suggest using Disqus or Livefyre to handle your comments and user login integration. However if you are just starting out or want to dramatically increase the amount of discussion on your blog, Comment Luv is the comment plugin for you.
I recently installed Comment Luv on my blog and my very first post afterward quickly became my most popular article of all time. User discussion increased by 372 percent over the site average and shares on networks like Facebook and Google+ saw a significant increase. Facebook likes increased by over 300 percent and Google +1s were up nearly 200 percent. So how can a single Word Press plugin cause such a dramatic increase in activity?
Comment Luv allows users to enter their blog’s URL and their Twitter handle to identify themselves as the author of a related blog. If the site the user linked has an RSS feed, Comment Luv will post a Do Follow link to their latest article right below their comment. Many bloggers use commenting on related sites as a way to showcase their expertise and as a form of advertisement anyway. Comment Luv allows them to not only get a direct link back to their blog and a link to their Twitter feed, but also a link to their latest article on a contextually relevant page that qualifies as a trackable backlink to Google. Lists of blogs with the Comment Luv feature have become a popular means for bloggers to do some quick advertising.
The Comment Luv plugin was recently taken off the market for a change in price structure and for some upgrades to improve sharing across social networks. The newest version of Comment Love premium is totally customizable allowing you to set a minimum number of posts, or specific qualifying actions a commentator must complete before they will see benefits from the plugin. On my site I allow everyone, even new visitors to enjoy Do Follow benefits from their link attached to their comment. I also give them the option of choosing between any of their last 10 blog posts as their hot link if they share my post on Facebook, Google+ or Twitter, which is how my shares on certain networks have increased dramatically.
The last 10 feature is more valuable than it might seem. Niche bloggers often cover the same topics in a similar timeframe because they are in the news. For instance a couple weeks ago Klout changed their algorithm and most social media bloggers covered it with a blog post. If you came to my website and decided to share your views on my Klout article it would allow you to link back to your last blog post. If your last blog post was about why you dislike Google+, but the article before that was an in depth analysis of the Klout algorithm change, a Facebook like becomes a small price to pay for a contextual link to the most relevant article possible directly below a comment where you’ve proven that your opinions are interesting as well as sound.
Comment Luv was a major success during its first round of sales. It was re-released on Wednesday, November 16 at the price of $67. It comes with 4 special bonuses including the Dealpon and Dashboard Luv plugins, 15 Ways to Generate Traffic Article Set and the WP Mail Ads Developer License. This special re-release deal is set to expire 14 days from the 16th, so I highly recommend getting your copy of Comment Luv now before the price raises and all the bonuses are no longer available. The plugin will be pulled from the market again shortly, and re-released a third time in a few months, and the price is expected to be approximately $140 at that time. If you would like to increase the engagement of your visitors, incentivize your likes and re-tweets and install a great comment moderation script with included spam protection, Comment Luv is a no brainer.
