In the early days of blogging, success was often measured by the number of comments you received on a blog post.
But, as the blogosphere has matured, the volume and value of blog comments has shifted a bit.
After all, there is more blog content available to us than ever before, which can hinder how much time people have to leave a comment. And, much of the conversation about blog content has moved to social networks instead of on the blog itself.
So, do blog comments even matter anymore? Is it something that businesses should be concerned about with their company blogs today?
That’s what Stan and I discussed in today’s episode of The Marketing Huddle.
Here is what we covered on the show:
- Why blog comments matter in the first place;
- Top reasons why some businesses and some of the top blogs in the world have turned off blog comments;
- Why Stan has removed comments from his blog and Laura has kept her comments on her blog;
- How to evaluate whether to turn blog comments on or off; and
- Whether you spend time commenting on other blogs.
