Top 5 Reasons to Buy the CommentLuv Premium This Week

The CommentLuv Premium WordPress PluginFor those of you who haven’t heard yet, Andy Bailey is having a special 75% off anniversary sale on CommentLuv Premium (CLP).  If you don’t already have a copy, you may want to hop over and take advantage of this sale while it lasts. (My affiliate link is below.) The regular price is $97 and the price right now is about $24. In this kind of sale, the price goes up after every 5 sales and this sale will only last for about 5 more days.

Here’s the short version of why I recommend CommentLuv:

#1 – CommentLuv Premium Plugin 75% Off Anniversary Sale

This is your chance to grab your copy of CommentLuv Premium at 75% off. (Yes, that is my affiliate link. Personally, I don’t make much money with affiliate programs but every little bit helps.) As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, this sale will end soon. Actually, I’m late to the game writing this post. Most of you probably already have this plugin or know about the sale. IMHO, it’s a great deal.

#2 – Awesome Bonuses

This version includes several bonuses that you can download for free: the “15 Ways to Generate Traffic eBook”, the “WP Dealpon” plugin (offer Groupon type deals), the “WP Mail Ads” plugin, the “Dashboard Widget”, the “WP Auto Links” plugin and the “Premium Headers” pack (in Photoshop’s PSD format along with an instructional video.

#3 A Commenting Strategy Tool

A while back, I wrote the post “Commenting on Blogs – What Strategy Works for You?”  (At the time I’m writing this, there are 175 comments. People feel strongly about commenting.) The main reason that people install the CLP plugin is to drive traffic to their blog by engaging with their readers. CLP is a too. Alone, it won’t perform magic for your site but used wisely as part of an overall strategy, it can be very effective.

#4 – DoFollow Control

The feature that I appreciate the most in the premium version of CLP is the ability to control the do-follow attribute at an individual comment level. Let’s face it, there are people who will leave a number of acceptable comments on your blog and then start sneaking in links to sites that you’d rather not be associated with. In CLP, you have the option of setting the number of comments someone needs to have before their links have the dofollow attribute. You also can go into individual comments and remove the link or the dofollow attribute if you’d like.

#5 – GASP Pro Anti-Spam Plugin is Included

Of the eight different plugins included in the premium version of CommentLuv, the GrowMap Anti-Spam Plugin (G.A.S.P) is my favorite. The biggest issue that I see in CLP is that you will get more spam. Why? For the same reason that you’ll get more valid comments: do-follow links are an incentive that bloggers look for when they comment.

Why Use CommentLuv Premium?

Why Install the CommentLuv Premium WordPress Plugin? In previous posts, I’ve talked about the benefits of installing the CommentLuv Premium.  There’s also a guest post by Randy Pickard asking the question Does CommentLuv Leak Link Juice?

Kimberly Castleberry has written a great post about GASP Pro – Your First and Best Choice For Controlling Spam On WordPress Blogs. Kim includes a video where she talks about this awesome anti-spam plugin and shows you how to configure it.

Ileane Smith has also written an excellent article, The Ultimate Collection of CommentLuv Blog Lists. Check out some of the CommentLuv enabled blogs that she’s listed to find other bloggers to engage with. If your blog is CommentLuv enabled and you’re not listed on any of these, now may be the time to see if you can get included.

Do you have tips for other CommentLuv Premium users? What would your advice be to someone who is considering installing it? I’ll leave you with one more tip. If you have CL on your blog, make sure to submit it to the “DoFollow Blog Directory & Compendium”.  I get a surprising amount of traffic from there.

  1. Hi, what else can be said about CommentLuv? I’m a Premium user since years and I can’t think about a blog without CommentLuv, it’s really priceless.

    At a point that I can’t really read a blog if I can’t see the CommentLuv icon, it’s becoming an habit.

    This plugin is not just a plugin, it’s a community, it improves your theme, it changes how your readers interact and how you interact with your blogging friends.

  2. Great post! Commentluv can truly increase a websites flow of traffic and give them the recognition they deserve. Thanks for sharing your post and educating others about Commentluv!

    1. You’re welcome Chad. Thanks for letting me know that you found my post helpful. Another benefit is being part of the CommentLuv community. It’s a wonderful group of people. There are quite a few bloggers who post lists of other CLP blogs to comment on. It’s something to keep an eye out for. Some of these bloggers only post links to blogs with a page rank of 3 or more but some don’t have any restrictions other than leaving a comment for them.

  3. Been using the pro version or quite a while now. It drastically improved the social media sharing of my posts, and the other features are just amazing. Takig into consideration that theres just a one time fee, this plugin is awesome!

    1. Hi Abhay,
      Thanks for weighing in on CommentLuv Premium. It’s good to hear from others who have benefited from it. I understand why people always look for free plugins but sometimes we need to weigh the benefits of investing in premium software like CLP.

  4. I used to use cmomentluv for my other blogs, I wasn’t aware of the Do Follow Blog Directory and Compendium so that’s on my list to check out. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Clemence,
      I joined that directory when it first started out. It was free at the time. Someone here mentioned that it costs $10 to join now. Still, for the amount of traffic that I receive from it, I would join for that investment.

    1. Thanks for sharing Steven. I feel the same way about CommentLuv. It really gave my blog the kick start that it needed whenI was new to blogging. Plus, there’s a wonderful community of bloggers who use CommentLuv. They’re supportive in so many ways.

  5. CommentLuv is really a great plugin which can surely help us in driving a lots of comments to our blog. Every day i read at least two article which tell me the importance of CommentLUV plugin and hence i want to buy this plugin. IF any one has discount coupon code than plz provide me and help me

  6. For anyone sitting on the fence, I’m telling you, this is a great plugin if you’re trying to build a community. It WILL increase your traffic (which immediately increases $$$ if you’re hosting ads). Andy has really done a great job with this plugin and the improvements over the years have just made it better.

  7. Commentluv is one of the best plugins around. I was sitting on the fence and then finally bought it. I wish I had bought it when it was the sale but don\’t regret buying it at all. Its worth every penny.

  8. Commentluv is great plugin. I was going to buy this on very first day but luckily i won developer site license in a giveaway on weblogbetter. 🙂

  10. Thank you for not only sharing this, but also explaining this over to us. Overall I can definitely see how they would help you tremendously. Great article and great information as well thanks.

    I am really a fan of comluve and been using for almost 2 years and it really help me for spammers on my blog.

    1. Thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed my article. CommentLuv isn’t for everyone and it definitely increases the amount of time a blogger will spend monitoring comments and dealing with spam. It is a great tool for people who are serious about incorporating commenting into their strategy for driving traffic to their blog.

      That’s great that you’ve been using CL for so long. I’m glad it’s working for you.

  11. Sherryl — I did sign up for the Do Follow Directory and Compendium. I’m not sure how it works but I paid my $10 and got a response that I’m in. So, we’ll see if I get any traffic from it. Thanks again.

    1. Jeannette,
      I didn’t realize there was a fee to submit your site to the Do Follow Directory and Compendium. When I registered back in June of 2010, it was free. Still, that seems like a reasonable investment to me. I hope it works as well for you as it does for me.

      I appreciate knowing that there is a fee. I would have mentioned it in my post.

    1. Thanks Keyuri! I think that’s great that you’re adding CommentLuv to your site. I really believe that will increase the number of comments that you get.

      Absolutely contact me if you need help. Who knows? If I do end up helping you, I may end up writing another blog post. 🙂 (My post on adding the Facebook like box came thanks to helping Catarina.)

  12. I used to use cmomentluv for my other blogs, but I deleted it due to a couple of concerns.
    1) When you have a lot of external links on a webpage (even if they’re nofollow), I think google ranks your lower on the SERPs.
    2) I got a lot of spam from spammers looking to build links.
    How do you combat these problems?

    1. Hi Tony,
      I think it’s safe to say that everyone who installs CLP notices an increase in the amount of spam that they receive. It’s the biggest downside but most of us believe that it’s a fair tradeoff.

      There are a lot of options that you can tweak to help eliminate the amount of spam that you get. A lot of us manually monitor the links that are being left. (I remove links to sites that are blatant advertisements and add no value.)

      I don’t know for sure if my Google rank is tarnished by CL. My rank has grown slowly but steadily. There’s a large number of bloggers (who I respect) that use this plugin. If they were concerned enough to remove this plugin, I believe I’d hear about it and I would remove it to. Google is changing their algorithms again. So, there’s a chance that could happen. If it does, I’ll write a new post and provide links to resources.

      Meanwhile, I’ve linked to a guest post that Randy Pickard wrote about CL leaking link juice. You may find the article and the comments interesting.

  13. commentluv premium plugin has very good feature.one of the best features is that it has do-follow strategies.it also can control spamming and what to something,everyone knows about what it is…
    we can see it as a core of blogging.

    1. Hi Bhushan,
      There certainly are a lot of controls built into CommentLuv Pemium that we can use to help control spamming. As far as I know, GASP is the best tool out there for controlling spam.

  14. CL is one of the best plugin to increase traffic and comments on a blog.
    Though I didn`t used premium version I am going to get very soon.

    1. I think you will really like the additional control that you have Khaja. In addition to the plugin, you’ll find that you’re a part of blogging community. Good luck. This special is going to last for another 4+ days and then it’s gone.

  15. Sherryl — I already have the CommentLuv premium version, although I took down my affiliated link because I think I had one visitor purchase and it was taking up geography. I have gotten traffic from websites — such as yours — from the CL link. I think it encourages people to comment and it’s a nice little perk for your readers. I wasn’t aware of the Do Follow Blog Directory and Compendium so that’s on my list to check out. Thanks for the tip.

    1. Hi Jeannette,
      I’ve been meaning to pull down the affiliate link for CLP too. Even though I was a beta tester and wrote a couple of detailed posts explaining the benefits of the plugin, I only ended up begin credited with two sales. (Although I know several people who thought they were buying through my affiliate link.) The way Andy set up that program was that the payout went to the first affiliate link that left the cookie. It would have been nice if I had earned more commissions but honestly, my motivation in writing the posts was to help other bloggers not to make a few extra bucks.

      That do-follow directory works well for me. I also get traffic from a couple of blog/directories in Ileane’s list too. Although, a lot of her links are new to me and I haven’t looked into them yet.
