Comment Luv and RSS Stats: You CAN have Both.

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Bloggers using Comment Luv to help boost their SEO (search engine optimization) results have long had a dilemma when it cam to RSS feed stats tracking services like FeedBurner.  If they wanted the best search engine results for the link included by CommentLuv in their comment, they had to disable RSS item tracking, because link tracking redirected the link through FeedBurner and reduced the power of the backlink. 

In other words, bloggers had to choose between knowing how feeds were being consumed and improving their blog's position in the search engine results pages (SERPs).

That was a crummy choice to have to make.

And FeedBlitz has fixed it.

I'm happy to announce that we have worked with Comment Luv (Twitter: @commentluv) to ensure that bloggers using FeedBlitz's RSS services (the leading and fully-supported alternative to FeedBurner) and CommentLuv together will:
  • Have their native links served when CommentLuv adds their links to a comment so all the "google juice" ends up where it belongs; AND
  • Track RSS subscribers and other detailed feed usage activity using FeedBlitz's RSS stats / metrics / item tracking service.
So with FeedBlitz (and only with FeedBlitz), bloggers can both track comprehensive RSS subscriber activity AND get all the SEO / SEM (search engine marketing) benefits which are properly theirs when using CommentLuv. No more crummy either / or decisions.

How to Start
  • Register with FeedBlitz.
  • Set up your CommentLuv-friendly feed via RSS / New (start a trial if necessary);
  • Tell CommentLuv how to find your FeedBlitz feed, by either:
    • Updating your blog's feed autodiscovery settings to use the FeedBlitz version of your feed, OR
    • Changing / defining the URL CommentLuv uses to be your FeedBlitzed feed in your CommentLuv account settings.
That's it!  CommentLuv will then pick up your SEO-friendly links automatically.

And one more thing...

It's been great fun working with Andy at Comment Luv; there's more to come in the not too distant future.  Stay tuned...

Thanks, yes I have looked at both of those. I tried better feed for awhile and then discontinued it. I will probably activate it again but I probably don’t want the hassle of selling ads myself.

I was unaware that there was such a problem RSS and trackbacks when using commentluv. Sound like FeedBlitz has corrected the problem though. Thanks for the head up.
Thanks From Jay at
