Would You Pay For Blog Comments?

This is the 15th post in a series of seventeen posts I’m doing following Kim Roach’s list post of “17 Copy-And-Paste Blog Post Templates“. You can see all the posts from this series on my blogging challenges page.


First let me clarify, I’m talking about paying for someone to comment on your blog, and not paying someone to comment on other blogs to create backlinks.

The reason I clarify this is that usually people think about paying for comments with the goal of getting more backlinks, and it ends up being automated software doing the work of spamming hundreds, even thousands of blogs. Pretty much everyone agrees that this is not ethically correct, even the people that offer these services.

What I want your opinion on is paying for real comments on your own blog (or guest posts).

I’ve spoken recently about a new blog comment related service, and it’s about ready to be unveiled, however if you’re a bit of a detective you can already figure out what the service is called and what it will consist of.

Is it okay or not to pay for comments on your own blog posts?
