To be honest to you, I am flattered when people comment my posts. That way I know that I am not only posting for myself – someone reads my stuff and comments widen my horizon. I love comments.
Before Akismet, Defensio and other antispam systems Google had to implement the nofollow tag, it was just silly for them to index all the junk, but among them was the real comments, kind of victims of spam.
Now that we don’t let spam out, I wonder if its time to let the comments get rewarded again, kind of saying thank you for commenting me. If I remove the nofollow tag your site will be linked from my blog and search engines will embed that link in the system, like any other link.
If you answer no, please leave a comment why ok?
One thing I am specially curious about is how people are going to react to this. Are people going to comment just to get linked? I “think green” and hope that people will continue as before and just be intrigued by the new bonus.
