Google listened – Blogspot Blogger comment form allows URL link

Hurray – non Blogger users can again provide an auto-linked URL when signing in to comment on blogspot Blogger blogs.

It seems that Google does take account of what we have to say. Very wise considering the downturn in comments on Blogger blogs and the number of people talking of leaving for a different blogging platform.

Here is the announcement at Google’s Blogger Buzz – BlogYou Blog, We Listen

Thanks Colin of Adelaide Green Porridge Cafe for alerting me to this change. At this stage not all Blogger blogs have been changed to this system.

      Thank you. Same to you.
      Thanks for the link love too – you are always very generous.

    Yes, they seemed to listen to all the protests and no one is happier than me :-D It was quite time consuming to leave comments and frankly, I did skip it some days….

    I hope your having a xmas holiday filled with joy and laughter :-)

      So it has. I will have to check to see if CommentLuv gets stuck with other blogs too. There is no reason why it should be picking on you.

      I will look to see if there is an update too. Thanks for letting me know.

      I hope your Christmas time is wonderful too.

      I was not aware of this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

      Here is Steve’s post about the subject.

    Well, this is good news. I think they realized the potential loss: a massive migration to wordpress.com

    Just to make things really clear: Google never does something out of pure “kindness and consideration” – the idea of “respect” is a foreign concept for the Giant!

    Hi Sue!!! For me, the subscribe to comments addition to blogspot is nice. It can be tough to remember checking back on every reply.

    I hope 2008 is great for you!!!!

      Yes it is a good new feature. I tend to have trouble keeping up with emails if I use subscribe features though. I use CoComment to help me keep track. I email subscribe to the CoComment feed so I get the same information in just one email.
      It is good to see you here Bobby.

    Does it really matter? I mean, all those links are no-followed, so you’re not getting any seo benefits…

    This is good news for blogger.com users since I personally stopped commenting on their blogs because of the rigorous process. I even wrote a blog post on it some months back but it seems some people still insist on logging in to comment. This is soooo old hat when you have capabilites that allow you to moderate comments.

    It is better to have a WordPress blog on own domain and own host.

  18. Posted April 10, 2009 at | Permalink

    It’s a great news for non blogger users to post their comment on any blog. It happens sometimes that posted blogs never been showed on the site. Thanks for the news.

  19. Posted April 27, 2009 at | Permalink

    thanks for share it

  20. Posted September 27, 2009 at | Permalink

    search the google then find your site.that is a really excellent post.

  21. Posted October 24, 2009 at | Permalink

    So it has. I will have to check to see if CommentLuv gets stuck with other blogs too. There is no reason why it should be picking on you.

  22. Posted October 24, 2009 at | Permalink

    I reals like the fact that Google now allows us to put the URL address in the comment section, it makes alot of sense to allow it! =D

    Till then,
