Deal with Negative Blog Comment

While, at first, some bloggers may have decided they would never delete any comments – believing that the antidote to bad speech is always simply more speech – they may come to realize that there is no point in leaving hate-filled, often drunken, comments sitting on their blogs.

A good rule of thumb is that if a comment is a personal attack or contains racist, sexist, or other highly-charged insults, then fee free to toss it in the trash.

Don’t turn disagreement into a fight

Disagreement is not necessarily a personal attack. Distinguish between someone saying “You are stupid,” and saying “Your idea is stupid.” The first is a personal attack, but the second, while hardly charming, is disagreement. An attack on your ideas is not a direct attack on you.

If you respond to disagreement as a personal attack – if you interpret the comment “Your idea is stupid” to mean that *you* are stupid – then the atmosphere will become highly charged and can easily escalate into a big, emotional fight.

You can avoid that, though, by seeing the comment for what it most likely is – disagreement with what you *wrote,* not with who you *are.”

If you were upset when you read the original comment, then don’t respond right away. Wait until you are feeling calm. Then you’ll be in a much better position to keep the situation from getting out of hand.

Consider restricting who can post comments

If you are extremely bothered by negative comments, even those that may not be direct personal attacks, you might want to try to avoid the problem by restricting who is allowed to post comments on your blog. You can require commenters to register, and you can only approve those people who you know and trust.

Restricting comments in this way will cut down on the amount of comments you get, and may filter out some good comments that would otherwise be left by people who you don’t know. For some bloggers, that trade-off will be worth it. If it’s more important to you to keep the conversations in your comments sections pleasant than it is to meet new people who randomly land on your blog, then consider going this route.

Badge of honor

Some people say they consider it a badge of honor to get negative comments or email. Some may just be trying to put a good spin on a bad situation, but some actually do enjoy getting negative attention. Some bloggers will even publish their nastiest emails on their blogs for their readers to laugh at. This solution is obviously not for everyone – but if you are writing partisan political material, or other highly-controversial material, hate mail will come with the territory, so if all else fails, you might as well just laugh.

While nasty comments are an unfortunate fact-of-life for many bloggers, just remember that you are in the driver’s seat of your blog and can choose how you want to deal with them, and you have the right to do whatever makes you the most comfortable.

 

Get More Followers for Your Blog with These Tips

Each entrepreneur realizes that returning clients are the best. They know you and trust you, they purchase more from you, and they prescribe you to others.

A similar rule applies considerably more in web based promoting. That is the reason you ought to make a special effort to make your guests subscribe to your blog.

Getting subscribers and tracking them

There are multiple ways for your readers to follow you. The most popular ones are RSS, email, Twitter and Facebook. I strongly recommend you to add these to your blog.

Most of these subscription methods allow you to track the number of your followers. One notable exception is RSS. In a usual WordPress install, for example, there is no way for you to know how many RSS subscribers you have.

A good solution to this problem is FeedBurner service, currently provided by Google. It shows you the total number of your subscribers, as well as some more useful details about them:

. item views
. item link clicks
. subscribers time line

That allows you to analyze your feed performance and try to tweak it for best results.

Displaying follower statistics

Some social networks and WordPress widgets allow you to display your number of followers. Do you need to do that?

I believe the answer is yes, with a small caveat. You should only display subscriber numbers when they are reasonably high. For most people, the most important threshold value is near 1,000 subscribers. Once you hit that number, you get the following benefits from displayinfg it:

. social proof that your blog is interesting
. attracting guest authors
. attracting advertisers
. Maximizing your subscription rate

My number one suggestion is to increase the visibility of your subscription buttons. Make sure they are easy to find and click on the first screen of your page, and possibly somewhere under the post body, as well.

Try different widgets to attract your subscribers. They come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Some may work better for your audience and page layout than others.

Split test your email subscription forms if possible. Good email services offer tools and instructions for that purpose. Unfortunately, for RSS, Facebook and Twitter this may not be an option.

So what I propose is to track your subscription rate over a period of time with one widget and then with another one. Try to exclude other variables. Run each case for one full week, preferably at unremarkable time when there are no holidays or special promotions.

Widgets and WordPress plugins for subscribing and showing statistics

There are dozens of plugins to attract subscribers and show readership numbers. Here are a few of them which I noticed and found useful:
1. Feedburner FeedSmith plugin from Google
2. Feedburner mail – blog updates by email
3. Feedburner subscriber counter
4. WP Greet Box plugin
5. Share and Follow plugin
6. Facebook Like box
7. Twitter Fans plugin
8. Twitter counter widget
9. Twitter buttons
10. TwitMeme follow widget

 

Reasons Why Bloggers Fail

Regular there are new Blogs made and distributed over the web, but then, with the several many web journals over the web, They all began off with incredible expectations yet just a some blog are fruitful. What who is a fruitful blogger, As an obvious certainty, if a blog is making more than $ 100 a month, than it is said to be an effective blogger! such blog are showing improvement over 98% of 120+ million websites out in the blogsphere. Presently Why 98% online journals are not doing great? Since a blog needs CONTENT and TRAFFIC, I am certain it is not a direct result of absence of data. There is heaps of data on the web, both paid and free it is about having the correct mentality to take right choice, it ought to be made with the capacity to make a benefit out of it. Let’s be realistic there are, 3 reasons why bloggers come up short.

  • Fear Competition – A Lot of blogger or you can say new internet marketers are afraid of competition. But the main reason behind every successful blogger is competition. In Internet Marketing, if there is competition than it means there is a bigger market for a particular niche.
  • They feel, “Why would someone need to read what I’ve got to say on the topic?”
  • They feel the world is saturated, plus there’s no other blog in that market.
  • Many people create blogs for fun and not to make money. They don’t take it as seriously as they should.
  • Most blogger create a blog because it is free and it is easy to create a blog, if the blog is not making any money for them, they simply quit has they have not incurred any money in it.
  • Most blogger don’t treat their blog their business. A money making blog is a business and it should be treated as such.
