There’s a simple little thing Blogspot bloggers could do which would make us non-Blogspot bloggers happy. It’s simple, and it won’t change anything about your site except. . .the ability to share our link when we comment on your blog.
See, if you are signed into Google or Blogspot, and then comment on a Blogspot blog, your link is automatically added. So you get the backlink, the chance someone might click on it, and all those fun perks of commenting, besides the interaction. But some settings on Blogspot force everyone to utilize a third party Google to leave a comment. This gives no control over what link is added. And sure, we’re going to comment anyway. At least, I know I will. But it would be nice if we all allowed each other to share our real blog links, and not the one imposed by settings.
So how do you, the blog owner, fix this? Just sign into your Blogspot control panel, click settings — comments. Change “Who Can Comment?” to “Anyone”. Don’t be alarmed; this doesn’t remove the spam fighting captcha. It just means even if we’re not part of a community network, we can still comment–and leave our link, like most other blogs allow.
Thanks for playing.
Do you refrain from commenting on a blog if you can’t enter your real link?
