Do you find that it is very irritating when your comments submitted were left under moderation until the author approves it?
“Your comment is awaiting moderation.” – this is the message that appears after you hit the Post Comment Button.
This indicate the the author had to read your comments first before he approves it and appeared in the article.
When your comment is left under moderation, you will not earn any point until the author approves it too.
No wonder less readers are reading latest blogs published.
Look around your own blogs, count the number of comments. How many are there in each of your blogs? Mine could hardly reach a handful. Worst scenario is ZERO comment which left me hung up dry and disappointed.
Everyone would rather join forums, groups , leave comments on the walls of the author to receive immediate points. It is much easier to collect points at these sites but leaving comments on blogs help writers to communicate with each other better.
Hence, in order to encourage your followers to read and leave comments on your blogs, remove the comment moderation option. Then whenever your follower leaves his comment, it will appear immediately which means new comments are automatically approved , giving your readers 1 point to gain. That would make him happy.
Don’t let your readers wait for his pending point.
This is how you can remove the comment moderation
- Go to my sites
- Select the site that you want to remove the moderation option
(For example: I chose Festival & Holidays)
- Go to Dashboard -> select Settings ->go to Discussion
- On your right hand side , you can find a list of option you can manage over the comments under your wings.
- Scroll down to “Before a comment appears “, UNCHECK both boxes, don’t select any of them.
- Press Save changes
The next time any of your new and old blogs under this site will self approve all comments immediately.
Blogjob would not wait for your comment approval.
Your readers will receive 1 point immediately.
A win-win situation for both sides.
Now, everyone is happy
A win win situation to encourage your readers to give read and comment.
