Heh. There are a ton of those commenters.
They are spammers. They usually link their pharmaceutical sales site or something else in their name.
I thought I’d address one other thing though. About comments.
The #1 thing most bloggers are disappointed by is the lack of comments by folks, especially in the early days of their blog. My advice to you is to hang in there. Here is the reason:
- When you first launch your blog, your regular reading audience is very very small.
- A lot of bloggers get disappointed early at the lack of comments, and then stop blogging as often because of the lack of comments. They feel like they’re shouting into the forest.
- After you have several hundred regular readers, you will start getting comments.
Other things that help:
- Link trade with other sites that talk about the same things. Establish those relationships. These people are the most likely to comment on your blog, or read your blog, or link to an interesting post you’ve written. That nets new audience members.
- Actively search out and follow people on Twitter and Google+ that talk about or use the same hashtags as you. Engage with them by commenting on their Tweets or status updates. Non-robotic Twitter users will engage with you. These people are the most likely to comment on your blog.
- Use Google Adwords or some other keyword research tool to figure out what your target audience is searching for. Start using these terms liberally in your title tags, backlinks, and inside the body of your blog posts. People finding you on search represent possible new audience members.
Once you’re up to several thousand unique visitors a month, the comments will start coming in
