More of you will be familiar with CommentLuv, a WordPress plugin that encourages comments and allows us to get to know each other faster. Read about How CommentLuv Works.

It can be a challenge to find posts on the ComLuv site so you may want to bookmark this collection of CommentLuv posts and videos.

Wow there are a lot more CommentLuv Videos on YouTube now! This one by Just Ask Kim about walking your blog in a ComLuv Circle of Luv is very popular:

Besides CommentLuv, one of the other two best ways to meet bloggers who are interested in collaborating with you and sharing your best content is through our private Secret Blog Club (SBC) blogging collaboration.

UPDATE: The Secret Blog Club forum was lost after the domain it was installed on was hacked. Unfortunately, the owner was never able to recover it and it is gone for good. We have started over collecting information for a new database.

“BloggerLuv is a lounge for active bloggers to connect and trade ideas and where to get what resource.”

BloggerLuv was started by John Sullivan who recently wrote a post about Dealing with Better Spam Comments. I wrote a long comment for that post and want to share it again here. It explains why I believe we need to think carefully about our definition of spam:

I’m sure many reading this probably already know that I am one of the champions for supporting small businesses and welcoming them into our blogs. Since John opened the door I want to explain briefly why I feel the way I do.

Spam originally only referred to automated comments left by bots – not comments written by humans. That said, I consider any comment whether written by a human or not that is NOT about the post it is left in to be spam.

Akismet is a major problem because many people we know who never spam have been flagged as spammers and many bloggers have a box checked that instantly deletes whatever they write in OUR blogs – and everyone else’s. There are posts about that in my blog in the Akismet category.

The only comments and links I recommend we not approve are those that are inappropriate or link to bad neighborhoods (adult content or gambling related). You can also choose to delete links to sales pages, Made for AdSense (MFA) sites or poor quality sites if you wish.

The questions to ask yourself is who does it hurt? Who does it help? Why do I care? I’m sure you’ll make the decision that is best for you.


Have a post about BloggerLuv? Leave a link to it in the comments and I’ll move it up. If you have more than one leave a link to each one.

  1. When you understand the impact that CL has in regards to SEO, this tool can not be overlooked. I am not saying that it would right or wrong; I will say that the time that it takes to leave a decent comment and actually read a blog post will greatly reduce bounce rate. Why is that important? The search engines penalize you for high bounce rates by lower rankings.

    • Hi Matt,

      That is an interesting point I haven’t seen made before – and you are correct that lower bounce rates are a factor. There may be a trade-off though because CL attracts spammers and they don’t always read or leave decent comments so they spend less time than real readers.

      Either way I support CommentLuv because it is beneficial to small businesses and they are the solution to the impending economic crash. More on that in my post CommentLuv Your Way to Business Prosperity.

  2. CommentLuv is the great boon to bloggers as well as for commentators, happy to see the encouragement here, Tons of Thanks!

    [Hi Matthew, Your comments are being stuck in spam by WordPress (Automattic) so you are probably on the worst Akismet blacklist. You may want to contact them to see if they will reconsider and get you off. Use the test link at the top of this Akismet Blacklist post and the link to contact Akismet further down in the post.]
