Top Commentators And WP Cache

I added a couple of plugins this evening. Wp Cache and Top Commentators. Let me know if anything seems off. It seems to be looking good to me. The Top Commentators was a pain in my ass because this theme can be incredibly tricky to work with on widgets. The Cache should keep load times very quick.

The Top Commentators is kind of a way to reward those who communicate regularly on the blog. While I may only carry a PageRank 3, I make it very clear that I give it all away on the blog. From commenting to the homepage, it’s all juice passed to you. I could care less about the rank as long as someone is listening. I usually get indexed within a couple of hours so the spiders to make a few trips here everday.

Hi cash tactic blogger,

Thank you for what you are doing for use with your do follow and top comments plug-in.

I have 2 questions man:

1) Doesn’t this bring spammers to your blog?

Your blogs name is excellent.

btw, we have the same template (SEs love it), but tweaking it is a “cauchemar” (translate: nightmare).

Franck the body guard.

Hi Franck,

The top comments plugin is new but the Do-follow has been on for awhile. I have the Askimet plugin running and Trackback Validator running as well to keep out the spam but yea, I do get a lot of it.

Your absolutely right about tweaking this theme. I have spent many late nights pulling my hair out on just the smallest things.

Once again Ruck you continue to bring a wealth of info and help to the game, and things like this will only continue to increase your reader loyalty.

Keep it up!

I’ve never been a big fan of the top commentator plugin for the simple fact that is drains authority like crazy. But obviously, if you don’t care, there’s nothing at all wrong with that.

I like to give as much as possible to my readers, but I do want to keep some of it to myself as well. :)

It’s great that you’re being so selfless with your blog, Ruck.

Ruck I am glad you are willing to share everything with us, even link lovin’

I use the DoFollow as well to reward those willing to share their thoughts.

You pages have always loaded quickly for me but I have hi-speed and that normal does the trick.

I may have to use the wp-cache plugin as well.

The WP Cache plugin is a good one. I had to install it because my blog was always reading “Internal Server Error” due to too many WordPress connections as far as HostGator was concerned.

What were the Top Commentator problems you had?

January 22, 2008

I used some other Top Commentators plugin and it had shrunk the words in the sidebar like real bad. I got another one that allowed me to write in the widget and it’s working great.

good plan, Ruck! this will encourage readers to comment & increase you reader loyalty!

So the question is have the number of bloggers posting increased and are you getting additional visitors each more.
