As a blogger, regardless of what level you are in, you should know that getting comments is one of the most motivating aspects of blogging. Why, because among other things, it is the best way to know that you are not alone, that someone actually reads what you have to say, and most importantly, it is also a form to build relationships and interact with your audience. The later is probably the one that I have benefited most over my blogging career. Trough commenting, I have made friends, met people, and even gained business partners that, in one way or another, are a important part of my online ventures. Obviously, the opposite is also true. If we like to receive comments, other fellow bloggers does too. The feeling is always mutual.
Anyway, I really don’t want to repeat myself as to the power of commenting and benefits of having a blog CommentLuv (aff link) enabled. If you are amongst the 400.000 plus, that downloaded CommentLuv, this is one of those plugins that really don’t require further introduction. I have been using it since 2009, and this is the only plugin that I never let go of. That in itself should tell you something . In any event, I provided my two cents about commenting and the CommentLuv plugin some time ago. With the exception of some adjustments, they still apply today, and if you want to know more, I recommend reading the following:
Commenting has gone a long way since then. Other forms of interaction and blog engagement made its way. New tools and plugins have been developed to improve your link building campaign. SPAM comments have increased dramatically, thus requiring some form of SPAM comment defense mechanism . New forms of incentives have been created to give something back to people who legitimately interact with you. And the list goes on… Fortunately, there are plugins that can help us manage all these “quasi” requirements. The problem however, is that they have to be installed individually, and along with it, all kinds of problems that can occur within the process. Site speed loading issues, security, vulnerability, reliability, etc., are just but a few things that can go wrong. Well, all that has changed…
Enter CommentLuv Premium
Andy, the man behind CommentLuv, has decided to take his all popular CommentLuv plugin to two levels up. Yeah, next level would be an understatement. Simply put, he took the following features…
- CommentLuv – Adds the users last blog post to the end of the comment that they make on your site provided that they include their URL and it has a feed available. It can also show information about each link left when a user hovers their mouse over the link.
- KeywordLuv – Provides very similar functions to the popular KeywordLuv plugin, with the exception that it keeps the name of comment author “clean” by storing the keywords separately to the name in the database.
- TwitterLink – Adds an extra field to your comment form to allow your visitors to add their twitter username along with their comment. The username will be stored and you can display it within the comments in your chosen place to encourage people to follow them. This adds an additional enticement for your readers to comment on your posts.
- Top CommentLuv Commenters Widget – Show off your top commenters (Top CommentLuvers)
- Dofollow Plugin – Enable dofollow or nofollow on comment links. Or you can set a combination of both. For example, after 5 approved comments, all links become dofollow.
…and, combined it into one. The CommentLuv Premium is born. Needless to say, that among other things, all these helps you increase traffic, increase user social engagement, block spammers and very, very good for SEO.

CommentLuv Premium is just that, 6 in 1 plugin, hence, 6 reasons why you should consider having your blog CommentLuv enabled. No other plugin, that even resembles a similarity with CommentLuv premium, will provide you with so much features in one neat package. No other plugin will provide you with an “iron clad” guarantee, that it works. You see, as I am writing this, even if you want to, you can not purchase the plugin just yet (more on that in a while). Why, because it is currently being tested by top bloggers that know what is required for a plugin like this to fulfill its objectives. Andy has assembled an elite group of beta testers, that have been providing feedbacks to identify possible bugs, suggest enhancements, etc., before it is released to the public. Even when that happens, I am sure that more updates will come, as you have seen before with the free version. Therefore, rest assured that once you get your hands on CommentLuv premium, it will be credible, reliable, and recommended by many bloggers who are trusted. No need for giving you a list of them, as I am sure they are easily identifiable :).
Disadvantages Of Not Using CommentLuv Premium
This is a tough one and I will really need your help. If you think that there is a any disadvantage in using CommentLuv, please do let me know. It will be a pleasure to discuss it with you. Considering that nearly every aspect on CommentLuv’s features are customizable, I have to admit that the only disadvantage that I can think of right now is that it won’t be free.
I Want My Blog To Be CommentLuv Premium Enabled
Good for you :). Starting the 27th of September for 7 days only, Andy is opening the doors for the early adopters, and for those who can’t wait no longer. I am not sure how many copies will be made available so you might want to consider to secure a position as early as possible. If you are interested, you can do so by clicking the “Luv+” image. And did I mention that once you have the plugin installed, you immediately qualify to be an affiliate? How cool is that? Make a sale or two and you got your investment back. Simply awesome!
That’s it! Is your blog already CommentLuv enabled with the current free version? Do you like it? What benefits do you think will you have (or not) by upgrading to the premium version?
