As a site owner I know that it is frustrating when someone leaves me a comment and asks me a question and then they vanish into thin air. I have taken the time to answer their question, but I have no idea if they ever saw my answer.

I am sure I am not the only one going through this.

We are taught that comments are important to our site and so is subsequent discussion. I think out of the 200 or so comments that have been left on my site only a handful are left by "repeat" commenters. By this I mean the person comes back and checks to see if I have left a reply for them and then they respond to that reply.

Now, sometimes you leave a comment and the site owner replies and other than saying "thanks" there isn't much that needs to be said. In those cases, I wouldn't expect someone to go back and leave another comment (unless of course you want to).

Keeping Track of Visited Sites is Overwhelming

This is probably the biggest reason why people don't go back to a site to see if the owner has responded. I bet you completely forgot what site you were even on.

I hope to ease some of these dilemmas with this tutorial

You will need to use SiteComments to get comments on your articles. If you haven't accessed it before just click on the site rubix tab on the left of your screen and then select SiteComments.

Thanks so much for this info. I was wondering how that worked once you had a comment in the system. I just assumed is you wanted to follow up for some reason had to go to blog directly. So we get credit for replying to comments w/in the system? Thanks

Unfortunately you do not get a credit for leaving a follow up reply via Site Comments. Some members have discussed that this would be a great addition to the platform. Hopefully we will see this in the future.

Usually I go to somebody's website back which I see interesting to look for answers to my comments. Sometimes some sites are so far away from my interests, that I do not know how to extend conversation. Luckily, there are many inspiring and fascinating sites, that sometimes I forget to comment. After reading, I go back to particular page which was offered for input.

That is great that you are going back to sites you were interested in. I wish more people did that. I had someone outright disagree with a post of mine and I left a very detailed response but I never heard back from the poster. I was really hoping he would come back and reply to my comment.

I think it happens when people overwhelmed with tasks. They want to learn, participate in community life and leave comments too. Your tutorial helps to stay on track. Thanks:)

Nemira you are great; I must say here that you made 2 follow up replies recently in my site, on the same post. I can only say thank you. Pity we do not have credits for such actions.
