453 Percent Growth In Article Comments

Last February 2006, we accepted 94 comments submitted on articles vs. accepting 520 comments on articles last month. That’s a 453% jump in article comments approved!

A reader that is engaged with your content enough to leave a comment essentialy blesses the article with their endorsement; albeit a percentage of the comments that are not kind (which is why we give you the ability to delete any comments you don’t like).

Article comment trivia: 6,458 comments were accepted in the last 12 months of which 37.8% were rejected for being mean spirited or inappropriate.

Blog comment trivia: 5,038 comments were posted in the last 2 years (by 1,100 unique humans) of which ~99% were accepted.

Hi Chris

Maybe You could have differnt classes of comments.

General Comment.

Request for more information in this topic, which could use the internal mail system, to reach back to the author.

Recommend another article on this topic to create a recommended net of articles within a subject area.

Etc.

Just some food for thought

George

I appreciate EzineArticles providing a way for readers to make comments.

I have met some interesting people this way, and gained a few students and customers as well.

Like my momma said “If you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all.” (unless asked of course (smile)!

And if you check your Google Sitemaps external links list, you’ll find links from comments if you linked you comment to your website.

I have something nice to say, as today I hit 4,000,000 article views. I would say that is pretty darn nice indeed.
