There have been a number of new platforms popping up recently that claim to increase your user engagement, get you more comments, increase your traffic, and more, through means that I consider short-sighted and harmful. Since people seem not to mind, I thought I’d write a guide for how to increase the number of comments you get by 400-1,000% and ruin whatever shred of community you had on your site.
Matt outlines 6 steps and provides a couple of bonus pointers! One of my main pet peeves in regards to commenting is forcing people to sign-up. If I need to sign up to something to comment, I will just not comment. It’s all about lowering the barriers of entry 😉
