I have been thinking about a contest in this blog for a long time, maybe a top commentator contest, It’s a common strategy for bloggers to increase readership and increase comments, but I don’t have that enormous traffic yet that I can start with. Maybe there’s 4 or 5 commentators but it’s not yet enough, so I was thinking maybe a backlink for those who comments in this blog. But not every commentator, of course there should be a reason for me to give them a backlink.
I have already linked out to bloggers that helped me including , MaterSimon, Toan, Sire, Mitch and Lee Ka Hoong. The very reason why I linked out to them is that their comments are very informative, very helpful and fills out the things that I forgot to mention in my articles.
So simply, I will link back to those bloggers who gave help and that’s it. Even though I don’t know you yet, as long as you helped me and the other readers, you deserve a gratitude for doing that. Because you know, not every blogger does that. There are also bloggers who doesn’t help other bloggers because they are afraid to be competed which I think is not healthy as a blogger.
So what do you think? Will it increase readership and comments?
