Speedlinking – 03 Dec 2007

by derek on December 3, 2007 · 9 comments

It is hard to believe that December is here already but the calendar has turned and it is time to give mention to the top commentators from the month of November.
There are some new names, or maybe I should say keywords, at the top of the list this month. You might remember that I questioned whether using keywords as your comment name should be permitted.
As much as I would prefer to see names rather than keywords, I cannot dispute that the readers included in this list have been adding value with their comments.

Top Commentators November 2007

1. Furniture Stores is a site that sells contemporary bedroom furniture, living room, and dining room furniture at wholesale prices. While there is some nice furniture at this site, I know it doesn’t meet my definition of wholesale prices as it is all above my preferred price range.
2. Home Recording Studio caters to people interested in making music, or those interested in learning more about music recording and production. My youngest son is really into playing the guitar so I can see him being interested in this as he gets older.
3. Nick is the one true blog among this group, although he recently came to the realization that something’s gotta give and that means he is cutting back on the frequency of blog posts. With my family, work, and three blogs to maintain I can certainly appreciate this quandary. Hang in there Nick and post when you can!
4. Jeep Parts is dedicated to selling Jeep parts and accessories. I’ve never owned a Jeep but have had a few friends that had a Jeep CJ and it was great cruising around in that thing during the summer. Although given the bad things I have heard about the Jeep Liberty and Cherokee, I am sure the Jeep Garage can make quite a bit selling parts.
5. Male Pattern Baldness discusses the causes, treatments, and prevention of baldness. While I know many men fear losing their hair, I am in the group that would like my hair to fall out. While I no longer shave with a razor on a regular basis, I shave it down with clippers every other week or thereabouts.
This edition of Speedlinking has been a little different because only one of the top commentators from the month of November is an actual blog. However, everyone continues to contribute with value-added comments.
The final month of the year should be an interesting time and I look forward to more outstanding comments from all of you!

Reena, thanks for sharing! I feel that I know you so much better already. 🙂

Hmm, furniture, home recording, Jeep, baldness and Nick.
Quite the eclectic mix!

Hey thanks for the link love Derek…
I would like to think that your average reader is a balding musician with no furniture who drives a Jeep!

I have to say it kinda bugs me when I see people leaving comments under names that are obviously targeting keywords. Makes me wonder if I switched made all links nofollow would they still comment?


derek December 7, 2007 at 11:05 pm

That is a good point about the nofollow and I have had the volume of keyword comments increasing in the last two months or so. However, the majority of them are providing value with their comments and engaging in dialog so that doesn’t bother me as much.
Might be worth a little experiment though. 🙂
