Finding Comments on DoFollow Blogs

Here is a quick tip to help you find Wordpress blog posts that contain comments, to see if the blog comments are dofollow or nofollow..

As I go though the blogs that are up for review on my DoFollow Blog List, I first have to find a post with comments, to see if they are dofollow or not.

When you are looking for dofollow blogs to comment on, if you like to first verify the comments are dofollow, you know it can be a pain to find a post with comments.

This is a little trick that I use to find comments on WordPress blogs.

If you cannot easily find a post with comments, add this to your browser address bar, at the end of the blog path “/comments/feed”
Example: http://followlist.com/blog/comments/feed

This is the feed URL for comments on WordPress blogs. This will bring up a webpage that displays the comments feed in a readable format. You can then click on one of the links and go directly to the actual post to verify comments are actually dofollow.

I hope this little tip will save you a little time.

BTW, since I see a lot of Blogger blogs being added to the Followlist dofollow list, I will be posting information about what I consider to be a dofollow Blogger blog. I will also have information on how to properly set Blogger blogs up to meet the criteria for my list. Look for this in a few days.

Amazon, Colorado and Affiliates

Amazon, Colorado and Affiliates – I would not normally post anything on this blog that is related to politics, but the Colorado state government has screwed a number of it’s constituents. Let this be a warning to you in other states who are wanting to generate additional income online. This may be coming to a state you live in!

Amazon, Colorado and Affiliates

I would not normally post anything on this blog that is related to politics, but the Colorado state government has screwed a number of it’s constituents.

Let this be a warning to you in other states who are wanting to generate additional income online. This may be coming to a state you live in!

I live in Colorado, and today I received an email from Amazon, letting me know that thanks to the misguided legislation (HB 10-1193) passed by our state legislature, I could no longer be an Amazon affiliate.

Our state government, in all of its wisdom, decided it needed to try to collect more tax revenue by charging sales taxes on internet based transactions.

This is a bad law, and puts too much of a burden on affiliate networks, and Amazon was the first to reject the requirement, and will no longer allow affiliates doing business in Colorado.

I don’t receive much income from Amazon, so it will not affect me as much as it will affect others. Image waking up one day to find out all the sites you have been working on, building affiliate income on, are now worthless to you. Those affiliates who prepared for this may be okay – for now. If they saw this coming and moved to another affiliate network, good for them.

But, I am concerned that other affiliate networks will follow Amazons lead and thousands of Coloradoans will lose income.

It continues to amaze me how our local and federal governments continue to screw its citizens, in a time of great financial hardship.

Government continues to grow and consume at an alarming rate, while those of us contributing to the tax base are punished more and more. Has all common sense been lost in this country? Don’t they understand that being unfriendly to small businesses, taking more income from small business results in less tax revenue to draw from?

There will be those who blame Amazon for this, but Amazon fought this bill and gave fair warning that they would not participate in what they see as an unconstitutional law.

As Amazon stated in the email to Colorado affiliates:
“As we repeatedly communicated to Colorado legislators, including those who sponsored and supported the new law, we are not opposed to collecting sales tax within a constitutionally-permissible system applied even-handedly. The US Supreme Court has defined what would be constitutional, and if Colorado would repeal the current law or follow the constitutional approach to collection, we would welcome the opportunity to reinstate Colorado-based Associates.”

If you are a resident of Colorado, I encourage you to contact Governor Ritter here and your state legislators

If you are not a resident of Colorado, pay attention to bills being passed by your state legislatures.

Well, I’m off to look at all my websites to see where I need to change my affiliate programs from Amazon to some other affiliate network.

You know, I’m not that far from Wyoming, perhaps I am ready for a move to southern Wyoming. No state income tax, and they still value freedom and small business.
