This Site is Gravatar friendly.
Why do I say this?
I find that most comments being posted are with false address and packed with links, if not packed with links, far off the subject matter. Leaving you with no real way of replying to their, likes, concerns or interest. Do not take this in a wrong way, I say most not all.
OK! I know that we all like backlinks but I do not believe that this is the best way to do this. You look like a spammer.
- Not a good way to show your presence online.
- A good way to get ignored.
- Not a very good way to promote your online business.
- You will never get a response or your comment posted on this site anyway.
Just to name a few reasons.
How to avoid this ?
Most site owners have taking this into their own hands, by using commenting systems that require you to log into a social network, (Facebook, Twitter ) for verification. Which helps the site owner screen out the spammers, although comments may still be moderated before being posted.
A Excellent Commenting System (Disqus ) used by a large number of bloggers and site owners. The only drawback for you and site owner is that unless you have one of the set accounts you will not be able to comment. For now I will leave the standard system in place until the abuse starts.
Myself and am sure others find this limits activity in sites discussions, which brought me to this topic for discussion. The easiest way to have your comments taken serious, is to have a Gravatar/Avatar.
What Is A Gravatar ?
Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums.
Wikipedia: An avatar is a computer user’s representation of himself/herself or alter ego whether in the form of a three-dimensional model used in computer games or a two-dimensional icon (picture) used on Internet forums and other communities.
How Do I Get A Gravatar ?
It is easy , will take you no more than about 5 minutes, if you have a e-mail account and a picture to upload, you will have time to come back and comment to this post, and be taken serious. Although you comment will be moderated, your Gravatar will stand out from the rest being moderated.
So why not stand out from the Pack, Get Yours Today
