Is Your Blog CommentLuv Enabled?

commentluvEveryone likes to receive comments on their blog, it helps to grow a community and makes you feel, as a blog owner that there are people who actually read your posts. CommentLuv was originally created as a WordPress plugin to give something back to every commentator as well as compelling them to come back and visit your blog more often by automatically adding a link to their latest blog post at the end of their comment.

As part of ComLuv’s improvements, and due to popular demand, the service was later extended for users as well. The integration of Comluv to users is relatively easy, provided you follow their instructions by the letter. Once you have it installed, sit back and enjoy the commenting system that makes interacting with your commentators much easier, while giving them some LinkLuv.

If you have noticed, I have have recently installed ComLuv’s commenting system. The transition went very well and I had no problems getting it up and running within minutes. Having enjoyed the benefits of the system (even for just a while), I sent CommentLuv an email asking them if it was possible to claim another site with the same account, so I can install it in other blogs. You might be wondering if I got any response. Actually, I did and this is also one of the reasons why I am writing this post. Here is the reply from their administrator:

I am making the new site ready for the end of the month, it will allow you to have up to 5 urls registered (including 1 for a wordpress 2.7 blog you can create on the site) keep an eye out for it, there’ll be invites going out to registered members soon.

You can reopen the ticket by replying, feel free to contact me if you need further assistance.

Best regards,

There you go. CommentLuv is preparing for a massive turn around and soon they will be including features that are set to raise bells and whistles. Some of these features include:

  • Multiple sources – You will be able to register up to 5 sites with your account and retrieve posts from any and all of them
  • Free WordPress 2.7.1 Blog with plugins – Every single existing and future member of CommentLuv will be able to create their own WordPress 2.7.1 blog with plugins like CommentLuv already installed. All will be hosted on the new server and all will be free for any member to use!
  • Free CommentLuv Search Engine – The new site will have a search engine that scours the very latest CommentLuv sites and is capable of searching through post titles too. Get direct to the most relevant posts within your niche!
  • More than just blog posts – As well as blog feeds, the new CommentLuv will be able to retrieve your latest Tweets or Digg submissions! More source types can be added, what do you want to see?
  • And more…

Just as Andy Bailey said, stay tuned for the next CommentLuv which will be live this coming June. Note that due to this upgrade, all registrations are temporarily disabled at this time.

So, do you have ComLuv installed in your blog? Has it increased the number of your comments? What do you think of these new upcoming features (specially the WordPress free blog)?

  • This plugin does wonders on blogging or techie related blogs. I’m not personally using yet, but I doubt it works as effective in non IM niches.

  • Thanks for the idea, i think i will install commentluv on my blogs too.

  • Yes. I’ve recently installed CommentLuv to my wordpress site because I couldn’t figure out how to make the comment section do-follow. So I thought having CommentLuv would at least give commenters on my blog some exposure to their blog in return. So far I’ve had a couple people reply, but as I gain more traffic to my site, I think that will change.

    As always, moderate all your comments and use spam plug-ins as necessary.

  • Looks like a really good approach to attract quality comments, although this plugin has some not so nice footprints that will probably attract spammers as well. I’ll go and test on my blog, should work fine if Askimet is enabled at the same time.

  • This is great info. I just enabled comluv on my site and this is my first comment. It’s a great way to spread luv in the blog community.

  • Considering installing comment luv on my blog, though naturally concerned about the increase in poor comments.

    • Hi Michael. I think that regardless of having commentluv installed, there is still a chance of getting poor comments. Plus, you should always moderate your comments and set up an approval system where after say two or three post they will automatically get approved. People want links, and this is just but a reward for leaving useful and meaningful comments in your website. Try it. If you don’t like it, then you can always deactivate it, right?

  • DiTesco, yeah at the moment there’s plenty of nonsense comments that need deleting, so it’ll make no difference there. It might just lead to an increase in them.
    Maybe I will give it a spin.

  • Great information, thanks for sharing this. I have been looking for it for a while now and it really helps me out and my website.


  • Comment luv is really nice tool for blog commenting and it does really help increased the number of comments and followers in my site. I find it very useful in my online marketing coaching.

  • This is actually quiet similar to a blog post that I made a few days ago. Great minds think alike 🙂

  • My blog is also commentluv enabled, and I have seen the big change in my traffic and the interaction inside my website. Commentluv is really cool!

  • hello,
    I would like to know is it possible to install ComLuv plugin inside blogger as I would love to have it on my blog. If not, is there any alternative?

    Thank you


    • Hi Suzzy. Try this one here. Intense Debate is the only alternative, but working, to instal comluv in your blogger blog:

  • Hey DITesco,
    Thank you for your quick answer. I have tried to install it trough template 1st , but blogger did not except it is it was not well parsed. Then I did install a widget one, but I do not see any changes tho.

    Anyways, I will look more to solve this issues as I really want to have it on my blog.

    Again, thank a lot for your help and info.


    • Anytime Suzzy. Hope you get this sorted out. If you do encounter further complications, just shoot Andy and email and I am sure he will be more than glad to help you out.

  • Thats a great idea, but is it possible to use in blogger blog?

    • Yes, but you have to install a different commenting system in your blogger blog. Go over at comluv’s site and read the instructions. If I am not mistake it works with either disquss or intense debate. Hope this helps

  • Thanks for the excellent post. It is always good to learn from experts in this field. RSPCA Townsville

  • nice post
    i am using commentluv in my blogs and i have to say that now i have more traffic to my blogs. very nice plugin

  • You make so many great points here that I read your article a couple of times. Your views are in accordance with my own for the most part. This is great content for your readers.

  • I would like to see a commentluv plugin for pixelpost users.

  • I’ve already enabled the comment luv for my blog. However, I can see that many of my commenters seem to make my site as spam place. Using software like blog commenter tools make them easier to stopping by my site and put spam comments. Those guys really don’t appreciate what have the comment luv technology have done for them.

  • Commentluv is a great and is a big motivation for bloggers to comment on a blog with all the advantages for the article author

  • Di,

    Nice post! I think we’re just beginning to see how remarkable CommentLuv is going to be. It’s one of those things even the creators couldn’t possibly know what its effect would have, or how it’ll eventually evolve.

    I’ve personally seen a huge increase in traffic from it, and I’ve just touched the surface in ways to use it.

    Poor Andy has created a monster for himself 🙂

    • Hi Ken. lol, I am sure that Andy is quite happy with the “monster” he has created 🙂 Commentluv, used well, can generate some good and targeted traffic, as well as building relationships with an ever growing community of great bloggers. Thanks for stopping by
