Articles With Most Comments

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

3) 8 comments on: Article Marketing Benefit – Surges in Web Traffic Over and Over Again From Article Writing

4) 7 comments on: Herbert W. Armstrong Was Ahead of His Time!

5) 7 comments on: One More Mile

6) 7 comments on: Weight Loss for Brides – How to Drop at Least One Dress Size Before Your Wedding

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:

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.

Very Interesting. To me, a high comment count – more than one :-) means the article has engaged the reader to the point the reader is compelled to comment. Either a powerful story or a powerfully written story. My congratulations to anyone with more tha one on an article. I have picked David’s articles off the home page based on his titles. But then I’m interested in his categories. I enjoyed the ones I have read. Not only is the writer’s blog getting a lot more comments but view counts are climbing as well if I’m not mistaken.

I find it interesting the types of articles which get the most feedback, as they are not what I might have expected. I have a skewed and rather dismal view of the average Internet user and their shallow interests. It is rather enlightening to see that topics with substance are getting more comments. The Blog issue here is interesting although should be expected with the number of people who are writers here. What about increasing total traffic? How are your stats there? Are they up or seasonally up as last year this time? That is also a trend which might propel the increasing numbers of commenters on the Blog and the articles themselves? I am interested in additional data.

As far as the quality of the comments on the articles, some are decent but some are also not high caliber thought, that is a consideration too. It would be good to increase your quality of reader, indeed when I write an article on Hair Styles and it gets 22,000 page views, I really question the integrity and quality of the readers themselves. That is an issue, that needs to be addressed too. Popular topics of the masses is degrading some, but perhaps we are seeing an increase is more intellectual thought as a percentage of viewers. I would like to be impressed with not only stats of how many responded to the articles but the intellectual value of all this intended interactedness too. Just thinking out loud I guess?

I think there is a process by which most things are improving but we won’t recognize it until years later, although improvement is very much in one’s face here at EzineArticles. Perhaps we have here an inside track on net wide trends. I’m sure some such are beginning here often, then spreading as ripples in a pond.

Ed, Indeed I tend to agree with your summation in that it appears we are the first to see trends. Because this site dissects the viewer, reader, writer and industry or hobby sector and this site has improved a lot in that all the so-called “Get Rich Quick‚¬ stuff is getting drown out by reality based content. It seems to set the bar a little higher and the author’s works are getting better actually, as is my writing, which I never thought to be very good actually, having got a D+ in journalism in Junior High School? Go figure? That was the worst grade I ever got in school and kind of set me back a notch in ego in those early years I tell ya!

I think I like what I see here really, I find it great to be part of a team of real winners, who appear to love what they are doing and are well, they are just darn good at it. Indeed I would like to see the Internet up-graded with more value content and less junk. It clogs the system. The Internet is the greatest communication innovation to mankind in quite awhile and it propels the human race in so many great and wonderful ways.

I think you are right Ed, and I am happy to see that the whole thing makes me smile to see the positive trends here. Considering all of this in 2006.

I do believe you see it. When any one of us desires an improvement and intends and pursues it, the quality improves overall from the moment of intention. Hence, we each and all play a part in every quality issue. And we all have far more influence than anyone will give us credit for. If that does not matter to us, our power to change and improve has no limit.
