ExposeYourBlog!: About comments

I think that I can safely say that Don, Touwe and I are very proud of ExposeYourBlog! We’re very keen to grow the membership in order to get member’s blogs seen by a wider and wider audience. One of the ways in which I do this is by leaving a link to EYB! whenever I leave a comment. This means that other commenters see the link and hopefully check us out. I also do this when I see other blogs I come across elsewhere, especially if I think they might be interested in ExposeYourBlog!. I don’t really consider this as spamming, perhaps it is. I’ve noticed that sometimes comments I’ve made that have been held in moderation never get published. I’d like to apologise if my leaving a link causes offense. My intentions are sincere.

If you have a Blogger blog the best format for comments is the pop up one. This is the only pop up we allow on EYB!. Unfortunately the other comment formats either break frames or leave the viewer looking at a blank page. Aha! That explains why you weren’t getting many comments from EYB! Members.

I’ve made a thread in the forum about how to change your comment format, if you need it.

ExposeYourBlog!: Blogger comments

This is lifted from a post I made on the EYB! forum in the Blogger thread:

You really do need the pop-up window format
It seems that any other form of comments on Blogger breaks frames. To change; from the dashboard choose the ‘Settings’ tab then click on ‘Comments’. Go to ‘Comment Form placement’ and check ‘Pop-up Window’. Don’t forget to save the changes.

ExposeYourBlog !: How to put an EYB! link into your comments

If you read your regular emails from Don you know that we’re always looking for new members to make everyone’s surfing with EYB! as advantageous as possible.  One way of spreading the word is by putting a link into the comments you make in other people’s blogs. This serves in two ways as the blog owner sees the link and so do other commenters. I expect you’ve noticed some of us doing this.

How to do it (I didn’t have a clue until I was shown)?

To get the result:

I visit your blog when I’m on ExposeYourBlog!
You need to use a little HTML, I’m leaving gaps so that you can see the code, to get the required result add your ID number where you seeNNNNN and close up the gaps:
I visit your blog when I’m on < a href=http://exposeyourblog.com/?r=NNNNN>ExposeYourBlog! < /a>
You can change the first sentence to fit your mood. Of course you can use this to get people to visit your own blog too, by changing the URL.
