Writing articles and posts for blogs is a great way to articulate your thoughts. Being involved with a community is the best way to get trusted information and insight from your peers. What do you do when no one ever comments on your posts? I was recently reading some posts from seoroundtable about topics that are being covered at PubCon. I was immediately intrigued with an observation that Rand Fishkin made. He pointed out that, when writing posts, if you have a “matter-of-fact” point of view you aren’t really promoting comments. If you want community involvement you need to pose questions, which makes sense…right?
Are you more likely to post comments on a blog that poses questions, or do you read blogs for more general information?
