    Hi Dheeraj,

    Its really irrrrritating while fishing out in the comments page, isn’t it? I have enabled GASP and turn on Akismet too, and thus blocked almost all of the automated commenting bots. Still there are BIG Headed human bots to creep inside and in moderation queue just waiting for a nice KICK! Uhh!

    If anybody is serious on blogging and really wish to build up his/her career here, sincerity is a must. I agree with your argument.

    I have received such low quality comments on my blog & straight away sent it to the spam queue. So using Akismet + some other spam plugin is essential.

    Hmmm.. Nice view on commenting. if we can find anything controversial about blog post, we must post it on comment section without any shake. It would make us to get more view on those topic.

    Hi Dheeraj

    I agree with all the points mentioned by you. I see these comments each and every day.

    But the quality of comments also depends upon the contents. A thanks word gives more happiness to the blogger when he has provided some news on time. For quality comments, a blog needs to have a very big tech or geek community around like Shoutmeloud and problogger.

    What do you think ??

    @ Mohit . You are very right If you really want quality comment then Quality of content matters a lot. But my target of writing this article is to point those Visitors who just through Comments without knowing anything about post.

    @Swamykant. Sorry, But this time you are wrong. If you want Quality comments it does not means you should be bloggers at the Top.

    Certainly initialy people may begin up by appreciating your work by just saying one line “Nice Work ” and once he actually has some query he can crawl back.. You might be aware of few days back somebody was unable to read gadgets price that was highlighted in blue and he placed a comment that please share the price .. Now this may be counted as negligence while reading or being over curious for asking queries..!!
    Even if such comments are accepted that should not matter… WIth Commenting they are definitely getting inbounds to their site so they are happily doing that..

    I agree with Swamykant. If you want quality comments in quantity then your blog should have a community like Shoutmeloud or Problogger. If you don’t have a community no matter how well written your content is, it will not get good comments.

    Quite true. Quality of comments is not depedent upon quality of the content at all. If the quality of the content is not at all good, then you have a better chance of giving quality comment just by indicating the obvious mistakes and/or non-understandable items. In fact, many times it is seen, when the quality of content is very poor, then one gets to read some highly insighting and quality comments which provides far better information than the content itself.

    Comment is a great marketing tool for your blog, but it can turn out to be bad if you don’t think carefully before leaving your comment. :)

    Nice post.

    Always read the comments before approving. reject comments which are just for backlink and is not adding value to your existing post.

    Sorry, Dheeraj, but in response to your bullet point: “Catch mistakes (If any): If you find some mistake in article than let it knows to the blogger it will also help blogger and you also get noticed.”

    As a Virtual Assistant, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out several mistakes in your sentence. It should read: “If you find mistakes in the article, let it be known to the blogger. It will help the blogger and you will also get noticed.”

    Excluding spammers, every other person who comes across a good post wants to post a genuine comment on it. Because it is the natural behavior of human beings to love to engage in a conversation. That is why the facebook is so popular.But when it comes to comment on blogs, most new visitors hesitate to initialize a real conversation and that is why they end up with tipical “nice article” type comments. I think if the person doesn’t include any link into his comment, it is pretty okay to post one liners.
