CommentLuv is one of my favorite WordPress plugins. CommentLuv helps you build backlinks, and brand recognition. You can also increase engagement on your blog by installing CommentLuv on Blogger or by installing the WordPress Plugin. CommentLuv has also been the driving force behind fabulous guest blogging contests – including the big one going on right now in conjunction with Famous Bloggers, iBlogZone and MyBlogGuest.
(I'd like to mention that I'm one of the proud sponsors of the Traffic Generation Blogging Contest, and after you're done reading this post, go on an check out some of the submissions and wish the contestants well. Or maybe even enter the contest yourself – wouldn't that be the bomb. There's close to $4,000 up for grabs.)
Top 5 Dead or Alive
If for some reason, CL were to ever go away, you would hear the collective moans of over 45,000 CommentLuv members from across the blogosphere and let's just say – hearts would be broken. I will go so far as to say this – Dead or alive – CommentLuv is one of my fave top 5 🙂
However, quiet as it's kept, there has been some speculation in the past as to rather or not CommentLuv would survive the massive server loads and the costs associated with maintaining server upgrades. Basically, if you follow along with the CommentLuv blog, “like” the Facebook page, or subscribe to the newsletter, on occasion you've heard the owner (and friend to Basic Blog Tips) Andy Bailey mention that some big changes are in the works for CommentLuv.
Now, if you're paranoid like me, all kinds of nightmares start running through your head, and your heart starts beating fast as your blood pressure begins to rise!
What?? Changes coming to CommentLuv???!! OH NO!!
On the other hand you could be the cool and confident type and you're thinking – Hmmm changes coming to CommentLuv? Bring it!!!
Well, up until now, the greatly anticipated changes to CommentLuv been a very closely guarded secret.
CommentLuv Secret Leaked
The suspense is over – at least part of it is anyway. Watch Andy's most recent video where he talks about the Big Blogging Contest of 2011, and if you're totally impatient at this point skip to 8:43 of the video to find out the big news straight from the man himself!
CommentLuvvy – leaks (sort of like wikileaks but not really)
Remember that in the video, Andy says that he hasn't even started working on this project yet, but here's a snippet of what you can expect:
- ComLuv.com will no longer be a multi-user site. It will revert to a single user site featuring guest bloggers.
- Complete paradigm shift of how CommentLuv works
- Revamped CommentLuv plugin will allow sign-ups on individual blogs (like mine and yours)
CommentLuv registration on your blog?
Once people can register for CommentLuv on your blog that will have potential to bring traffic to your domain. Can you imagine what that will mean for your blog? I know there's all sorts of questions running through your heads right now and I'd love to hear what they are. Maybe we can get Andy to show up and respond to a few of them. What do you think about that?
