If you have been blogging for any length of time you should be familiar with a WP Plugin called CommentLuv (free plugin), however, are you are aware that there is now CommentLuv Premium.
This version of CommentLuv Premium is like a supercharged race car with all the bells and whistles to go with it. Imagine using just one WP plugin on your WordPress blog that could potentially send your posts viral, and we all know what that means to any business right.
The product creator Andy Bailey has spent a lot of time putting this together to ensure that this WP Plugin would do what it claims it can.
And I should know as I was one of the very early testers of CommentLuv Premium.
Why Change To CommentLuv Premium
Firstly it’s eight WordPress Plugins in one, by eliminating seven plugins from your WordPress site you are reducing the load straight away, this is a good thing, especially now with so much talk about site speed.
Now you have seen the video what do you think? Do you think this will improve your blog site?
What Can It Do For You
We all thought that CommentLuv was pretty good, but with the release of CommentLuv Premium things have just got a whole lot better here is why.
This WordPress plugin has eliminated many different issues from spam commentators to rewarding those who are genuinely adding value to your blog, which after all is what we all want to do.
Reduced Comment Spam
Another issue that has plagued bloggers since blogging began is being able to find a good quality one-way backlinks without having to spend the whole day doing it. With CommentLuv Premium you now have links generated on autopilot every time you comment on another CommentLuv enabled WordPress blog.
Forget About Manually Getting Back Links
Getting backlinks to your site is now simple with the CommentLuv premium plugin, by merely placing comments on other CommentLuv enabled blogs you will instantly receive backlinks to your site, this can be the last posts you made, or you can even manually select which pages you want to be displayed.
There is now no need to require anyone to register at your site to get “Dofollow” links, all they need to do is use one of the enticements you offer such as a Facebook Like and Google+ or simply five approved comments or whatever you have set that to be on your site to have all their links and all keywords become “DoFollow”.
You see CommentLuv Premium is rewarding those that are adding value to your blog and leaving those that are commenting on links far behind in its wake.
These are just some of the features you get with CommentLuv Premium WordPress plugin, so what we suggest if you have not done so already is watch the video above and then enter your comments below and see CommentLuv Premium in action for yourself.
Setting Up The Social Enticements With CommentLuv Premium
This is where the power of CommentLuv Premium kicks in, you need to decide what options your commentators are going to get for posting a comment on your blog and there are a few options to choose from.
- You can give full access to your commentators and allow all comments to be “Dofollow.”
- You can allow the commentator to have KeywordLuv enabled to leave targeted links back to their site
- Enabled, and this is the real power of CommentLuv Premium to have your posts liked in Facebook, Tweeted or even given a Google+ before your commentator can get “Dofollow” or any targeted keyword links from KeywordLuv.
Did We Experience Any Problems Setting Up CommentLuv Premium
To tell you the truth CommentLuv Premium is as easy as any other WordPress plugin to install. However, there are two options you need to be aware of to get some of the functions to display correctly.
These two options are found in the Twitter link settings of CommentLuv where you need to choose which form-type you are going to select, for us that was “Alternate” as the Theme 3.0 option did not work for our WordPress Theme. The next issue was with the Input label for the Twitter username where there was no space after the text box, so we merely had to add a space to the input label to correct the formatting.
Andy has all this covered in his tutorials, so it is not a problem to fix.
Would We Recommend CommentLuv Premium
The short answer to this is yes, we have the developers license and use this WordPress plugin on every single WordPress Site we own. If you want more control over your commentators, wish to build relevant backlinks, become part of a like-minded community of bloggers then you need to be using CommentLuv Premium.
