Business Blogging: Five Reasons You Have No Readers

Spin Sucks

While you may be tempted to give every other blog post a super creative headline or artsy (but not terribly compelling) lead with an obscure literary reference that will make you feel like a smarty-pants, remember: You’re  business blogging. Not just a “great post” comment with a link back to your blog. You interact with anyone who comments on your blog. It happens.

Disable Comments for a Better Blog

ProBlogger

Disable comments. In the past, whenever I did I’d usually receive a comment from the other blogger, thanking me for the link. That would be the comment in its entirety: some variation of “Thanks for linking to me.”. These comments and their brethren did nothing to propel the dialogue.

My thoughts on Facebook’s commenting system

The Way of the Web

There’s been a lot of debate around Facebook’s new commenting system, particularly due to the fact it is currently being tested on Techcrunch. Matthew Ingram does a good job of summarising at GigaOm, although the heart of the debate seems to be in the comments section of Robert Scoble’s post (I pop up a couple of times in the comments!). There are various reasons for allowing a choice of commenting profile, whether or not that includes the facility for anonymity in an easy or more complicated manner – such as creating a fake Facebook account.

Get and Keep Readers

Geoff Livingston

The way content gets found today with social validation and search requires that posts, videos and pictures get referred to and talked about by others.

So serve them well.

How To Tackle Negative Comments While Managing Community In Social Media

Social Media Network Marketing

Well you do not have to be a community member to receive negative feedback / response or a comment.

Before we re-act to negative comments we need to have a basic understanding towards the human mind set. There are a couple of ways in which one should re-act or rather let me say 'address' negative comments. Silence speaks.

The Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA ) is seeking public comments on its Ethics Code until January 5.
