You need to be very wise before you approve a comment on your blog.
Here are the main things you must obey before approving them on your dashboard.
Top 10 Guidelines on Approving blog Comments
Install Askimet to Look after spam comments in your blog. But never leave Askimet to approve comments on its own Because some people use advanced techniques to cheat Askimet. Just make a change in Discussion settings , to avoid auto approve of comments. Now Askimet move spams to spam folder but it will not approve any comments. It will just wait for you to approve or un-approve comments which are not spam.
Do not approve comments which are not related to your article. Some people comment on your blog only with the intention of placing their link inside your blog.
Never Approve Comments which have links inside the body of the comment section , Unless you feel that it is not placed for self promotion.
Never forget to visit the link which will be placed by the one who comments. Check out their website/blog once before you approve them. Because Google give importance for outgoing links from your site.
Do not approve comments having common bad words like , f**k, shit etc, even if the comment is related , Just edit the comment and then approve. It does not look good for your readers if the language is not good.
Always correct the spelling mistakes in the comment. It is not a bad thing to edit their comments just to correct their spellings.
Do not approve comments of Languages which you do not understand.
Never forget to reply for the comment you approve. It is always a good way to keep relation by replying back with those who comments.
Try to help them by replying if they ask you for some help or if they express any difficulty in the article. This may help not only for the one who ask you the question but for other readers as well.
Approve the comment of those who place a negative feedback on your post. Because positive feedback cant help your blog every time.
