Get a free link from

Posted by admin on September 9th, 2007 filed in Offtopic

Getting quality links is pretty difficult, but certainly not here. When Webanalyticsbook visitors you write a comment, you are given the option of adding your website URL with your comment. If you have done so, your link will now be displayed in the sidebar under “Top commentators” throughout the entire site.

So if you have to say something and need a no-followed link back, feel free to comment. You also can get a permanent link by evaluating one of the web analytics solutions at the world’s largest webanalytics guide.

    I love that you are willing to provide recognition for the top contributors to your community. It is important for people to sense some form of recognition. However, my concern would be that people’s motivations for contributing will be altered by posts like this that offer “free” links. On GrokDotCom we removed the no-follow attribute from all comments a while ago but have not publicized it. I believe any one who contributes to our conversation deserves a link back. I am just not sure that publicizing ensures the best possible dialog. Just my $ .02 :-)

    neat way to generate comments… great blog.

    Fully agree. It’s not the best way to increase comments and I probably should not post about it.
    I did not even do it in order to increase comments. Probably like Grokdotkom, all I want is giving people some linklove back. If it turns out that users write nonsense, I certainly will switch it off. Time will tell :-)

    I’m definitely for spreading the linklove!

    I switched off all “No-Follow”-Stuff in my Blog, which causes in the typical “great post”-comments. But over time some good dialogues were started through the comments.
    I think over time the comments will increase by themselves. You do not need to post about it.

    I started to review the blogs from frequent commenters and readers and gave them some linklove in this way.
