Comment on How to Increase Blog Comments by SEO Dave.

How to Increase Blog Comments I’m looking forward to WordPress 3, looks like another step in the right direction for those not really using WordPress as a blogging platform per se but as a content management system (CMS).

As I’ve got 50+ WordPress installations I’ve been trying to find a way to update them all from one source, right now I upload it one site at a time by FTP which is a PAIN. I know there are easier ways, but I have a custom WordPress core file to remove nofollow that needs to be updated as well, so can’t use the automatic WordPress upgrade plugin.

Hoping WordPress 3 gives me more options.

I recall seeing mentioned somewhere, so maybe you mentioned it before. Didn’t look at it until just now.

Are you using the WordPress plugin at

I just downloaded it, not installed yet, but if it can reduce the number of hackers, email spammers, comment spammers that view my content and try to abuse it, that would be highly welcome.

Akismet deals with 99% of the SPAM comments I get automatically, but with 50+ WordPress installations even with one SPAM comment per installation getting through to the Pending Comments section a week means I get 50 emails telling me I got a comment that needs checking out!
