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...

New: Time of Day Scheduling

Monday, January 25, 2010

Publishers using FeedBlitz's email marketing services to automate their subscriber contact can now fine-tune their daily and weekly mailings.  Not only can daily users pick their daily delivery time zone (we've had that for years), but they can also now pick a time window within that time zone for delivery.  Daily time windows are three hours wide.  Weekly deliveries don't have a time zone option, but you can pick any hour of the day for your mailings to go out in US eastern time.

Time of day settings are found in the scheduling area at Newsletters / Mailings / Schedule.

Jan 13 2010 - Early mailings completed

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

...but they're in progress and will be in an inbox near you shortly.

Update 10:17am eastern: All caught up. If for some reason you think your mailing still didn't go out you can run an on demand mailing at Newsletters Mailings Send an On Demand Mailing.


Annual pricing, upgrade discounts!

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

What better way to start the new year than by saving a chunk of change?

Save 33% to 50% (really!) if you upgrade and move to an annual payment plan.
Save 10% if you upgrade from the ad-funded service and pay monthly.

It's a fabulous offer for publishers using our free, ad-funded email marketing services, and is available right now.

The actual discounts vary by who you are, so log in to FeedBlitz and check out the offers at www.feedblitz.com/f?NewAccount (you MUST be logged in to be offered this deal).

If you want to stop the ads, make your mailings more professional, and take control of your mailings then this is the best time to take the plunge and upgrade. After all, 50% discounts don't come along every day and in these times it just makes sense to get the best deal you can.

The catch? Annual pricing and these other discounts are only available to publishers currently on our ad-funded services full time (i.e. those who were using FeedBlitz on the free service before 1/1/2009).

Do you qualify? If there's an ad in your mailing and you're not in a trial or grace period then, yes, you probably do!

Visit the upgrade page now to see what you qualify for, or contact support for more information.
