I’ve been blogging long enough to know about the different types of blog commenters (I’m not sure if that’s a word, but I’m going to use it anyway) floating through the blogosphere. There are so many out there that I probably missed a few in this post, but these are the major types of commenters that immediately come to mind.
The IRL Friend
This type of commenter is an in-real-life friend of the blogger. His/her comments are usually really long and filled with inside jokes that the rest of the commenters don’t understand. Often a long back and forth conversation ensues between the blogger and the IRL friend.
The BBB (Best Blogging Buddy)
The BBB is usually a long time commenter on said blog. He/she and the blogger have most likely corresponded outside of their blogs-perhaps through email or social media. The two BBBs usually comment on every one of each others’ posts and their comments tend to be on the longer side.
The Outright Spammer
This type of commenter is really annoying. He/she’ll/it’ll post something like this:
Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at.
Ummmm…Oh, thanks for criticizing my blog.
And his/her/it’s email will often look like this: fkdjal;firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you got a kick out of this post. Which of the above types of bloggers have commented on your blog? Did I miss any types?
