is getting some strange hits. With WordPress, I can literally track how many people have visited the site, what pages were viewed, what links were clicked & how people came to my blog. On top of that, WordPress gives me the option to moderate comments before they’re published…and apparently that’s a good thing. Recently, after posting my post about why I don’t drink alcohol, I started getting a bunch of comments. WordPress thought that they were spam comments (which, is kind of a foreign thing to me). They looked ok enough to approve them…and I did. And then, more came in…with really strange comments that had nothing to do with the post. So, I’ve started to be a bit more stingy of what’s approved. Here’s my criteria:
- A comment must sound like it’s coming from a human.
- A comment should be written in English and should be in complete sentences…or close to it.
- A comment should reference something that’s talked about in the post (i.e. if the post is about the Blackhawks, the comment should not be thanking me for my post about AIDS).
