I like to receive comment from readers because I like to interact with them, people comment your post means that they have read your post. If you wan to encourage your readers to comment your post in order to make your blog more active, then you should try the following top 5 wordpress plugin that can help to increase your comments.
1. Show Top Commentators
Encourage more discussion from your readers, by displaying their names (linked to their website if desired) and number of comments they have made recently to your sidebar.
2. Brian’s Threaded Comments
Adds a ‘Reply to this comment’ link to every comment. For example, when you click the reply link for comment no. 2, then your comment is placed directly under the comment no.2.
3. Subscribe to Comment
Allows commenters on your blog to check a box before commenting and get e-mail notification of further comments. It is one of the most popular WordPress plugins out there for the simple reason that it helps foster a community around your blog by encouraging commenters to come back and stay engaged in the dialog.
4. Comment Relish
Developed to send an e-mail message to users who comment on your website who have never commented before. The message dispatched to the user is defined within the plugin’s preferences. Numerous tags have been integrated to allow for information to be included in the message easily (I.E.: timestamp, author name, comment, ETC.).
5. Link Love
Turns off nofollow for all commenters who have posted at least 10 comments.
Today is another round of Google PR update, I think this is the fifth round of update. This time, Google deserved PR0 for most of the blogs that are participated in selling text links and write paid post (This is what we guess about Google’s action).
Two of my blogs have been deserved PR0 after this PR update, and I have tried to check other blogger’s PR, most of them also deserved PR0 most probably they ever sell text link before. While I checked Problogger.net (PR6) and JohnChow.com (PR4), their PR remains unchanged this time.
Page rank matter for me to make more money online, some of you may be doesn’t matter after slapping by Google with a Google PR penalty. How about you?

I have 5 posts have been declined by Smorty.com with the reason of one blog cannot take the same post more than once. After that they send me email as below for their reason of post declination and apologise for the system error.
There has been a system error in the last few days and the ads have been served to the wrong blogs. Unfortunately some of our advertisers have declined the duplicated posts. You can delete those declined posts from your blog if you want. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for your support.
This case is quite similar to Blogsvertise case, the different is my posts under Smorty are waiting for approval only.
Smorty, do you know I have spent few hours time to complete these 5 paid posts but end up you simply declined my posts saying that due to the system error.
Blogsvertise Rejected My Approved Paid Post
I’m surprised to receive an email from Blogsvertise.com regarding the rejection of my paid post which has been approved last week. Blogsvertise asked me to remove the post because the advertiser has decided to discontinue his campaign, and has asked for a refund for some recent posts.
Blogsvertise, I Cannot Accept Your Reason like This
I was thinking that this is none of our business because whatever approved paid posts have to be getting paid as we have done our task. Blogsvertise should take the responsibility on this issue, they cannot simply contradict oneself and I totally cannot accept the reason like this.
I asked you, will you satisfied and angry when your employer refuses to pay you the salary after you have done your works?
Blogsvertise, You Broke Our Confidence to Your Company
Blogsvertise, if you want to provide your excellent and professional good service to your customer, this is not the action that you should taken for your best solution. What we want is our confidence to your extreme company, we do not wish to see Blogsvertise just like what we so called scammed website.

Google Banned WidgetBucks.com but Yahoo Don’t
Google has banned WidgetBucks.com from the site appearing in the search result recently and most probably due to the hidden text links.

But if you go to Yahoo and search, there will be showing the result. Obviously you can see that Google banned WidgetBucks.com, but Yahoo don’t.
WidgetBucks.com Violated Big G’s Guideline on Hidden Text and Links
There is no official word from Google yet but it looks like WidgetBucks.com violated Big G’s guideline on hidden text and links.
If your site is perceived to contain hidden text and links that are deceptive in intent, your site may be removed from the Google index, and will not appear in search results pages. When evaluating your site to see if it includes hidden text or links, look for anything that’s not easily viewable by visitors of your site. Are any text or links there solely for search engines rather than visitors?
