Thank you thank you for coming to my brand new personal blog. As you know, the last one got hacked (for some reason, still trying to figure it out) but this new one is on a more secure server. So yeah! All in all, here I am ready to start bringing you all the amazing content you loved.

Now, at the moment I’m gathering articles so please read this article while I’m still trying to figure it out what to post next:

Very often I read various blogs, I find that in some of them, is not opted into “comment”. This happens to me especially when I visit blogs of large companies.

In theory, a blog is intended to be a place where you stop talking about your product and talk about topics related to your product or service, to speak, like “unlink” of the corporate image that offer in the other pages to provide a closer image with your users and discuss issues that add value to these and not allow their participation is a contradiction. Since the blog has been the main driver of Web 2.0, ie, share information addressed to users, information with which they can interact and collaborate.

Apart from defining the functionality of a blog, I found interesting name the different strengths that have enabled comments on any blog, and a great opportunity to show that they are losing so they can start as soon as possible to take advantage of these features:

They are good for the optimization: We started by one of the fundamentals most often convince people is that the reviews are good for positioning in Google, imagine that your content is 800 words, maybe in the future you add an update and arrives at 1000, and this, that’s the extent of your content, but with comments, helps add more content and best of all, that the content is relevant since in most cases the comments it is often left to ask questions concerning your niche or the same experiences that addressed the article. So with every comment it is as if an update to your post occurs, adding new content and this Google loves.

Help answer questions: Please note that every day 30% of queries on Google that never again be consulted, that have comments in your blog, it helps that these consultations are resolved through these comments are made.

They help you learn: Each comment can bring you new information you did not know, a different opinion, people who have a different point of view based on their experience or personal circumstances, so this will help train you better.

Is there anyone there ?: a blog with comments means that there is life, it gives a personal appearance and in turn makes see that the blog is relevant due to the number of comments out there.

Feedback: On many occasions you say things that are not quite right or inaccurate, so it is very likely that some users in a review do you see the mistake you’ve made, you are what you can thank and improve for next time do not not ever commit such error.

Make it easy: On many occasions I see sites that comment, requires registration. logearte with your Facebook account, inter alia, these records are a barrier for users, since they have to be a minimum of 30 seconds recorded on this platform, login with your Facebook or Google + (losing your privacy) . If you have a valid reason to do this, it is better to opt for the typical comment form: name, mail, web and commentary. So you will increase the chances for your users to leave comments because it is much faster, easier and give users the opportunity to make public or not his name.

Do not be afraid !!!, open yourself to your community, you can always moderate comments to see if they are spamming with your website, whether they are negative reviews (trolls), but allows people to comment on what you’ve shared with them .
So, dear webmaster or Community Manager of these pages and you are reading these lines, I hope next time you write an article, you enable comments as shown in the following image, a small gesture that helps you make larger:
