This is a short, but sweet, Web Content Thursday on a pet peeve of mine.
How do you feel about incoming links?
When someone links to me I go to their site and read the post that contains the link. I try to leave a comment on the post, even if I don’t agree with it. I figure that if they’ve taken the time and trouble to read a post of mine and write a response, then the least I could do is leave a comment.
What amazes me is how few bloggers do this.Â
I currently post on four different blogs, two of which are extremely active. On those active blogs every single post links to a news article or another blogs post. You’d think that I’d get at least one comment nearly every day, but it just isn’t so.
Now, I admit that there have been times when it looked like I was getting a link and I went to the site and couldn’t find it. (Does anyone know what causes that to happen?) But, if the blogger is responding to me, then I respond to the response.
(By the way, you can find out if someone has linked to one of your posts by going to your blog on Technorati and looking for blog reactions. If you haven’t claimed your blog on Technorati yet, I highly recommend doing so.)
What’s your take on this? Am I being too sensitive?
