When Is It Time To Close Comments?
I have a very successful blog post that gets a lot of traffic and a ton of comments. I'm VERY grateful for this so I don't want my question to come across as a complaint!
Close to 1000 comments have been left in the last year+ and as you can imagine, many are repeat questions or comments.
My question~ is it a good or bad idea to close comments? Would I slowly start losing rank in the search engines? Also, how do you handle duplicate comments? Just don't publish them?
I have to admit, when readers come to my site and take the time to leave their questions or comments, I feel obliged to answer everyone!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
