What is Comment Juice Plugin and what can it do for my blog?

If you have blog , you would get a few or a lot of visitors. You love the fact that they comment of your blog posts. However, they would feel more happy to comment, if they get acknowledgement for their comments. One way is to provide links back to their blog posts under their comment. It is known that links pass a little bit of PageRank to the link and thus to the commentator’s blog. Thus your commentators will feel more motivated to comment on your blog post and you will get more comments. A kind of win-win situation for both of you.

What is really cool about Comment Juice Plugin?

  1. Comment Juice helps you get more comments
  2. Comment Juice searches commentators blogs for RSS feeds, that mean they don’t have to enter their feed ever anywhere.
  3. It allows them to add texts to their titles which adds to their link building
  4. Even if you don’t want to use comment juice for your own blog, you can be compatible by just activating it on your site. You can even use custom feed instead of the default feed when you comment at another blog and still use other Comment Juice like plugins.
  5. The best part about this plugin: You don’t have to register anywhere. Just go to the site where you want to comment and then it searches your blog for feed. If it cannot find the feed, you always have the option to enter it while commenting at the blog.

What are the requirements for installing the plugin?

You must be running a minimum of WordPress 3.2.1 on your blog. At present it reads only RSS schema so make sure that you have that enabled on your blog.

Where can I download Comment Juice Plugin from?

Option #2: You are using other comment system.

You want to use comment juice to just be compatible to blogs that use comment juice ( for e.g. if Comment Juice on other blogs cannot find your RSS feed or you want to use a different feed for e.g. from feedburner).

Just activate the comment juice. If you want to use feed other than the default and check the “But always return feed below to external query” box and “enter your feed in Your feed address(defaults to wordpress RSS if left blank)” fields

How does Comment Juice work for the commentators?

The commentators on your blog just need to enter their web address as they always do. When they tab out,

  1. It checks in your database to find out the URL, that was saved when a commentator first commented on your site. It is saved against their URL address.
  2. Comment Juice first checks on their blog if the Comment Juice is installed. If it is and the feed option is enabled, it gets the feed from that option
  3. If Comment Juice in not enabled on commentator’s blog, it searches the blog for RSS feed.

Once it finds the feed, it loads the content from the feed. When commentator posts the content, the URL and feed are saved in the database of your blog. Next time the commentator puts in his/her site url, steps 1 to 3 are followed. He can override the selected feed address by putting the feed of his choice too in the field and fetching the feed again. The new feed URL will be placed against the URL of site in the feed.

Step 1: Just enter your URL in the website field

Should be an alternative to commentluv. However, I don’t like the idea that we have to put the feed link in the box, should make it easier by fetching the feed url from the input in website file.

Plus: Why not enable it on this site so we as user can give it a try? :)
