Hello my fellow bloggers, today I will be writing on something more interesting, I will be writing on how to add a commentluv system to a blogspot blog.
Previously there has been so many flaws in the way the default blogger comment system behave, it disappears sometimes or even fails to show up and it has been extremely frustrating to so many bloggers because they find this problem very hard to solve. Google has been rolling out so many updates on blogger in the past few years, like the introduction of the search preference tab, enabling users to use smileys in posts from the post section and so on, but they seem to care less about updating the look of default blogger comment box which has lead to we users finding alternatives. There are some many alternatives comment systems which engage and attracts users to leave a comment, some of them includes; Disqus, Google Plus and Facebook comment system.

What is CommentLuv
CommentLuv is a Plugin that was first brought to Wordpress. It is simply one of the best commenting system I have seen so far. Why? It's basically because it allows your content readers to comment on a post with their own link attached too. It's a very good and impressive backlink system used by many webmasters, because on every comment you make, you will also get a link back to your blog posts.
Cool isn't it?? Am very sure you love backlink, I do too and so is all other bloggers out their. This feature alone makes commentluv stand out, as everyone would love to comment on your blog.
