  1. Hey Akhilendra. You’ve got a cool site, but many people don’t like having to subscribe to blogs through email. You should consider allowing people to subscribe to your blog through RSS or if you already do, place the RSS subscribe button somewhere a little more obvious.

  2. On top of getting your 10 latest posts to choose from when commenting on other blogs (providing that the blog owners don’t limit you to the last one only, of course), you can now add 5 of your favorite posts/pages to that list.

  3. You mentioned that you have not enable do follow under commentluv but you suggest low comments site do. I am not sure why this gives you problems when you have many commentors. Is it because if dilution?

  4. I consider it a very good addition to the many awesome premium stuff that comes out all the time by Andy and the commentluv.com site.

  5. The change is happening because the current model cannot continue without some sort of recurring payment because there have been lots of feature additions and a lot more to come and when it comes to updates, it would be more profitable for me to make new plugins and sell them than updating and adding features to commentluv if there wasn’t a recurring payment.

  6. Thanks for updating…I’ve seen lots of blogs who are using commentluv premium for their site. To be honest, I must agree with you about the opinions of SEO gurus when it comes to commenting. Many of them give a lesser weight for blog commenting on their link building process that’s why they are relying to their software for automatic posting of their generic comment to increase the quantity of their links.

  7. Blog comments are very effective ways to know if the readers are satisfied with the information you provided. This is a very good way to get to know the readers and interact with them. We just have to be careful with the spammers.

  8. While Commentluv Lite will continue to be completely free, I’m going to show you why you’d be absolutely silly if you’re a commentluv user to not upgrade!

  9. Hi Akhil.. Great suggestions,
    A good comment not only add the value to your post rather than it generate a dynamic content where lots of learning stuffs, discussions even we may know what are the drawbacks are.
    Thanks for sharing.

  10. commentluv premium is worth every penny it checks for spam and also increases google rankings,according to seo experts!
