All of us bloggers love to read comments left by people who have enjoyed our ramblings. I think its one of the best things about having a blog, developing a connection with other like-minded people.
Wouldn't it be great if there was something you could do to to make it easier for those people to comment on your blog, to encourage people to leave their thoughts and ideas? But there is! Just turn off your word verification, that one simple change makes leaving a comment on your blog so much more enjoyable.
|SO SO SO SO SOOOOO ANNOYING!!!|
Word verification is pants... Even if you're lucky enough to get an easy one its still annoying and don't get me started on the really hard ones that you have to type twice...
So now your thinking, fair enough but I don't want male enhancement or get our of debt quick comments on my blog either. Don't worry about that, bloggers internal spam detection is so good you'll likely never see a spam comment in your spam folder never mind on your posts. A few really big blogs that I follow have also said that they never get spam and don't have word verification.
Since turning off my word verification I've had 60,000 views and about 600 comments - no spam on my blog at all, one (non-offensive, but you could tell it was fake) comment got sent to my spam folder. Thats it!
So please please please if you still have it enabled on your blog get rid of it!
