Comment Clowns

Comment Clowns

So I’ve been pretty busy off-line since the beginning of August and haven’t had much spare time. I’m hoping I can get back to a more leisurely pace after the holidays.

I did however have some time to review many of the comments left and wasn’t really surprised by the crappy comments left by the comment clown brigade.

What’s surprising is that there are blogs where these types of comments are getting published. I guess if they weren’t getting published, the comment spamming would diminish.

I can’t imagine anyone approving comments such as the ones below:

Great, I never knew this, thanks.
This is an awesome article.
I’m new to this forum.
Good job, I’ve bookmarked your site.
What a great resource!
Thanks for a really informative post.
Thanks for good information that comes out to read.
Please keep up the good work.
Thanks a million for this, I appreciate the info.
Here’s a comment.
Great advice =) Thanks.
I’m feeling it.
Very nice site

It’s no wonder these SEO experts are running around whinging about their lack of success when blog commenting for links. Wanna get a link? Offer an opinion or comment that’s relevant to the post. Not that hard to do, really.
