Since last week, bloggers who have visited and shared comments on this blog has been asking me as to what plugin I’m using to display a link to their posts in their respective comments.
This is to make no pun, but the answer was right underneath their nose, rather right underneath the comments text field.
The plugin is called CommentLuv and it is a nice, if not perfect, companion to the DoFollow plugin also running underneath this blog.
What it does is quite simple, once a reader leaves behind a comment and is most likely a blogger too, the plugin follows the link specified in the URL field and if it finds an RSS feed related to that link, as is the case in every blog, it feeds off that RSS feed and posts a link to the latest post on that blog in the respective comment made by that particular blogger.
At present, it works with wordpress, blogspot, typepad and blogs that have a feedburner feed link somewhere on their page.
Add to this the cool features of the DoFollow plugin and voila! The comments field in every post in this blog is now an instant feed aggregator and link juice factory in the simplest manner. You share a comment, I instantly link back to your latest post. Provided that you do have a blog with a working RSS feed that is.
Download it today, install it in your blog and give lots of link luv to your commenters.
