Commenting at WA
I have read a lot of posts here at WA regarding site comments and the quality of site comments. I am using the tool on a regular basis, because I think it is an important tool to help traffic to my sites, and I am learning a lot form doing the task.
But I have to give some critizism regarding the commenters and the quality of the site comments that are given.
Remember that there is an important reason to why people are asking for site comments. It is an important part of developing their business and online presence.
Commenting on other people´s websites, either here at WA, through the site comments functionality or directly on the different persons blog, is as important as writing a good article or review that is beneficial to the reader.
Meaningless words and sentences, just for the sake of writing something, is a killer of interest of the article that has been written.
You are learning yourself destructive methods to ruin your own business
Put yourself in the shoes of the owner of the article who are getting comments full of nonsense, comments not related to the article, and not reflecting anything in the article at all. It isn´t productive to anyone,not you and not the owner of the article. It is a waste of time on both parties. In the end, such behaviour is a way of learning yourself destructive methods to ruin your own business.
In the process you are also risking to damage traffic to the website where the article has been published. I know from myselft that I will not re-visit a website which is full of nonsense comments.
Be respectful of other people´s efforts to create content and exposure of their website. Don´t kill off their effort in this. If you do not take your time to read the article or post, or you don´t have the time, don´t comment. Wait until you have the time to sit down and provide a high quality and constructive feedback.
By being a good commenter, providing comments that shows that you have read and understood the content of the article, you are creating a mindset and behaviour that you will benfit from in developing and succeeding in your own business developement
