I am about to create a page on my site that will be added to my menu. The subject will be finding you Irish ancestry and will implement links from findmypast.com and access to their free trial.

But should I open it up to comment or leave it closed? Strangely enough within the almost 6 months I have been here I have done loads of posts but very little pages,

Any advice is very much appreciated.

Personally, I would leave everything open for comments.

I've left mine open for comments, however; I'm getting lots of trash. Mostly ads. I guess you have to sift through the comments and trash the trash.

Wonder if there is a plugin to elimate adds on the comment section as that does not sound right?

Hi Jason! -

How are you my friend?

I would leave it OPEN for comments!

It's Great to interact with your readers!

You never know who is reading your comments - it might just be that person who will see your comment - go to you Website and buy something! :)

I would have comments open on all posts and pages. The more potential there is for engagement, the better :)

And, in the case of this particular topic, you could encourage people to come back and share their findings after visiting findmypast.com.

As far as I can tell, there's very little difference between a post and a page anyway, except pages are usually designated to pillar articles and you file them slightly differently on your site.

Pages are for main topics and post are articles or blogs about that topic. Also privacy page, disclaimer, about me, and home page.

Well it is a main topic as this will be a resource that my site provides access to. It is also a really good affiliate program so I want to maximize on it
