Today our dev team enhanced the visual look of comments left on any of the articles on this site…er, so they match the same format as this blog. I wanted to show you an example of what the new visual layout looks like, but realized we didn’t have any reports that showed which articles have the MOST comments on them…until now:
Top 9 Articles With The Most Comments:
1) 13 comments on: The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11
2) 9 comments on: The Route to Democracy
4) 7 comments on: Herbert W. Armstrong Was Ahead of His Time!
5) 7 comments on: One More Mile
7) 7 comments on: How To Homeschool Without Making Your Child An Outcast
8) 7 comments on: Was Herbert Armstrong Elijah?
9) 6 comments on: How to Start a House Cleaning Business Under $200.00
Hmmm, what did we learn here?
That David Ben-Ariel has (3) of the top 9 articles with the most comments. Either his topic or his actions to promote his articles were most likely the source of increased comment attention.
There was actually (6) articles with 6 comments on them, so I just grabbed the top one on the list as I had to cut it off somewhere.
When you compare the number of comments some of the top blog entries have received:
- 10 Most Commented Blog Posts:
- Article Submission-Management Beta – 76 comments
- Article Comments Kick – 36 comments
- Puggle Article Dog – 33 comments
- Article Title Mis-Spellings – 32 comments
- Want To Know Your Rank-Position? – 31 comments
- Ghost Writers – 30 comments
- I Love EzineArticles! – 28 comments
- Got an Amazon.com ISBN? – 26 comments
- Article Production Teleseminar – 24 comments
- Rich Jerk – 20 comments
It’s clear that the community that follows or participates in a story or the topic along with having the right tools to unleash the market discussion have just as much to do with which articles get the most comments. What I’m trying to say is that the comments on this blog have skyrocketed ever since the we changed the software to make it easier to comment as well as to follow additional comments that are added to a blog entry.
Our next step will be to release RSS feeds and the ability to subscribe via email to each article comment ‘thread’… ahh, so many things to do!
If you have any suggestions for how we could improve the comment process on the articles or on the blog entries, we’re always open to feedback.
