Is there a WordPress store where one can buy LIKEs and comments?

I’ve been camping out in blogs for the last hour or so and stumbled upon something that has me wondering. It’s not the first time but it was by far the most puzzling.

Here’s the scenario: Blogger has very few posts in his blog, as few as six in the most recent one I saw. The first post had 129 LIKEs and 60 comments. The fourth post had 441 LIKEs and 241 comments. The first post was published in early May, and the most recent post was published on May 21.

I’m confused.

Is there a WordPress store where one can buy LIKEs and comments?

    If there is a WordPress store, can I go there too? I have piles of money.

    I’ve noticed the same thing and often the post is about some inane thing and poorly written. I don’t get it. I can’t wait to see how others weigh in here. So much so, I am ticking the “notify me of follow-up comments” box.

    While I hope you do, I hope you don’t receive 241 comments here!

    I was initially thinking along those lines, but I think I have now worked it out.

    1. it helps to have a large extended family who blog – they will Like or Comment to support your blog – none of my small family blog (not one)!.

    2. it helps to have a large circle of friends & acquaintances who blog – I don’t have a large circle of friends & acquaintances who blog (they’re totally not interested and don’t have the time – they keep in touch with people through Facebook or other social networks with brief sentences or have busy work & social lives & only use the computer for work).

    3. it helps to spend half the night surfing WordPress or surfing your current interest/hobbies and visiting other people’s blogs with similar interests to your own. You press Like or you Comment on all these blogs and possibly start to ‘Follow’ their blogs.

    These complete strangers, in turn, visit your blog and press the Like button or Comment button. If they’re interested, or are Blogaholics, they will then ‘Follow’ your blog – I don’t have the time or energy (with chronic pain, limited energy and severe physical health limitations) to spend more time on the internet or computer, so I rarely visit/surf other blogs).

    4. it helps to blog about universal interests – these attract other people – even if you’re not interested in those universal or popular subjects yourself LOL

    5. It helps to be a good writer with a quick wit and/or creative talent in some way – that you present well to the reader/viewer.

    6. It helps to keep your posts brief, with good grammar & short paragraphs that make it easy for Blogaholics to visit regularly.

    And so on……..

    Since I don’t have friends, family, acquaintances or work colleagues who blog, the only way I will ever get viewers is to press ‘like’ buttons, spend time writing ‘Comments’ or ‘Follow’subscribe’ other blogs.

    I just don’t have the time, energy or interest in spending all night on the computer.

    I just started a new blog yesterday on Health – I had 53 views from Australia in the first hour before I’d even finished setting it up or writing the About page. I set it up to be private (until I’d actually got it designed and wrote the About page and the First Post), but accidently pressed the public button and now I don’t know how to get it back to ‘private’. Grrrrrr.

      Those are all the things that I have also discovered in five years of blogging. However, it takes time to build up that following.

      How does one get 129 likes and 60 comments on the very first post? I went through the comments and likes and clicked on the various links to look at the people who had liked and commented, and even decided to follow a few of them. His following is no different from my own, people from here, there, and everywhere.

      It doesn’t make sense unless he’s a WordPress staff member…. Or something else going on, like that WordPress store.

      I understand having a post Freshly Pressed and getting 500 likes. I see that all the time, surrounded by posts that get a typical number for that specific blogger.

      This one is not the first that I’ve seen like this, but it did have the highest number, and for just six blogs, beginning in May and ending in May.

      What if they were just a penny apiece? That means that this guy only spent $4.41 for his best blog. Of course, pennies do add up. Maybe that’s why he hasn’t posted since May 21.

    This has me stumped, Russel. But of course, I’ve never understood the mechanics of getting comments, followers, and all the referrals that many SAY they get (and I think you know where I speak of). Totally missing something, obviously. I chock some of it to people being hesitant to respond to a lender … we’re all sharks, you know? But this many likes and etc??? Something seems pretty out of whack to me. Following the conversation on this one, for sure …

      Hey, Gene. I’ve found that tit for tat works quite well, and that’s what I’ve practiced for the last five years. Since I do subscribe to the tit for tat method, I wonder what I’d do if I had 440 likes and 260 comments.

    I understand the “you have to give, to get” theory .. and try to apply it to my own commenting. I seem to have highs and lows. Some posts receiving high numbers of comments, others zippo. As my commenting is pretty consistent, the “give to get” theory doesn’t seem to hold water to a great extent. The batting average of this blogger is amazing. I jealously want to know their secret …

      I bet if you were to set up a spreadsheet and track everything like I do, you’d find that the 80/20 rule holds quite well for the give to get theory. The more popular the person is, though, the longer it takes for that tat to come to you for the tit you left.

      Here at WordPress, I’m tatting for those who titted on me on May 16, so if you leave a comment for me today, it will be about 17 days before I’ll get to your bog to tat.. That’s why you have to keep track to see if the tit for tat, give to get works.

      I guess I should have realized that. I just tried to find him again but I don’t think I’m following him and he’s not following me. It was on one of my browsing sessions today.

      However, take a look at this one: http://2gallants.wordpress.com/

      It’s right up there. First post in March had 391 likes and 109 comments. Has four posts total, none with fewer than 100 likes. Says he has 1,563 followers. Amazing.

      When something is really puzzling me, I take a catnap. 99% of the time I then have a quick dream about whatever is puzzling me. Sometimes the solution to the puzzle comes in the dream.

      What appeared to me in my catdream is that this person had a previous blog, probably for a long time. He changed blog hosts, or changed blog names, or whatever.

      His last post on his old blog was something along the lines of, “This is my last post on this blog as I’m changinge [names/hosts/etc]. If you want to continue following me with my new name/host, click here.”

      If he did that on his old blog, and on Faceboo, and with a tiny url on Twitter, etc., he would be there. And with his five-year-old following on his new blog, he would continue to get his 500 likes and 250 comments — old to him, but new to us.

      That’s all I could figure out.

        This was my immediate guess too…although the WordPress store theory is more fun to contemplate. Since and new and not remotely made of money, I’ll just keep titting and tatting and enjoying the whole process.

    Do these blogs have Facebook, twitter and websites linked to them? If so, it’s highly likely they’re the product of SEO marketing drives. The latest thinking seems to rate blogs very highly and everyone seems to want one.

      Google has been ranking blogs very high for at least four years now. It’s that “fresh content” thing that Google loves.

      Combine blogging with appropriate titles, keywords, and back links, and it’s possible to do just about anything you want to do on the Internet.

          There is a difference, though, between Google search results and simply having a lot of followers. I have a WordPress web site where I focus on Google search results, and it works. Over here at my WordPress blog, I’m simply out to have fun, and I can best have fun by meeting people and creating relationships with them.

    That does sound odd. Your thought of it being a blogger who simply moved to a new blog is a good one.If it’s not that, then my guess would be that this Blogger is very active on other social media places, like Facebook and Twitter – probably already had a following there, and then tried out blogging to see how it went – friends from other places followed over to see what it was, etc. You could always leave Blogger a comment and ask. πŸ˜‰

      I get the impression that all he does is read, like, comment, and follow the blogs of others, and they reciprocate. So if he only has six posts but likes, comments, and follows, say, 50 blogs each day, and using the 80/20 rule, that would be enough to get him 959 followers after just a couple of months, regardless of whether or not he actually blogs much.

    Really interesting post…and just as interesting comments! I think this is the first post in a really long time where I actually read everyone else’s comments prior to leaving my own. I’m not quite sure where a lot of the likes/comments come from. I do use tit for tat…but usually, others find me first (not sure how) I just opened up my blog to the public in March and it’s doing relatively well….I think…how do you really gauge? I’d love for some feedback on that! I don’t have other blogs of my own to compare my “progress” to. I think i have an OK number of likes/comments/”regulars”, but can’t be sure. Would love it if there were such a thing as a ‘blog report card’ that puts my newbie blog alongeside others so I can get a sort of relative measure of how I’m doing….One thing’s for sure–I don’t have the numbers your seemingly fishy blogger has!

      I find new people to connect with in two ways:

      1 – I check Freshly Pressed each day. Not my favorite method but sometimes I’ll find a gem. Sometimes I wonder, “Who on the WordPress staff picked THAT blog!”
      2 – My favorite method is to read through the comments of the blogs for people whom I already have connected with. When I find either an interesting comment or an interesting gravatar, I’ll click on over to that person and check out the blog. This is my “like likes like” method. I like to interact mostly with people who like the same things I do.

    Ah-ha! I think I see what’s going on. I looked at my own stats and see that I have 618 followers. I don’t have 618 followers. I have 278 followers. So what’s going on?

    WordPress adds up the total number of your WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Email (and probably others that I don’t subscribe to like LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, etc.) followers to get the total.

    When I add up my email followers and my Facebook friends, yep, I get 618 followers. How disingenuous.

    I don’t have a Twittter account, and don’t want one, so I can’t see what Travelagos is doing at Twitter, but apparently that’s where all his followers are.

    Now I’m going to go to Facebook and friend every movie star, television star, recording star, and sports star and get me millions of followers! lol

      In my five years of blogging I’ve discovered that the 80/20 rule works real well: 80% of the people surfing the ‘Net don’t want to do to much work, and that includes reading. Even Google believes that because their SEO algorithms provide greater weight to posts that are between 300 and 700 words in length. Fewer and they think the post isn’t serioues enough. Longer and they know that people lose interest.

      Lack of time is what caused me to come up with the camping idea. I figured just about anyone can leave a like, but it takes someone truly interested to click on links to several blog posts and leave several likes and comments. At the minimum, I always try to leave a total of four, i.e., 4 likes, 3 likes and 1 comment, 2 likes and 2 comments, etc. Anything that totals 4.

    Hi Russel, camping out at your blog today πŸ™‚ This is a very interesting post and food for thought. I looked at both blogs, links to which you provided in the above comments, and it really is very, very curious. Below is my analysis. I apologize in advance for its long-windedness, but it’s worth reading nevertheless. As a matter of fact, I might actually turn it into a blog post, which I’ll pingback to yours, Russel.

    These are the links to the blogs we are talking about:

    http://travelagos.wordpress.com/2012/06/06/happy-1050th-follower/#comment-744

    and http://2gallants.wordpress.com/

    What someone suggested, that these guys have a huge following on Twitter or Facebook doesn’t hold water. I looked at their stats, and each has 2-3 Twitter/FB mentions per post. Which means that these posts have hardly ever been tweeted/FBied. Which means that TW/FB are NOT the driver here at all.

    You can trust me on this! I have over 6,600 Twitter followers and if you look at my blog http://LadaRay.wordpress.com, esp. older posts, there are 40-100 tweets each and at least several FB mentions. I get mentioned on Twitter a lot, yet very few of my tweeps have WordPress accounts. Many still use Blogger. So there goes this idea.

    Then, what is behind this situation?
    I kinda want to compare these two blogs to Lada Ray Blog: http://LadaRay.wordpress.com.

    It would be a good comparison, since I started my blog not too long ago, in Jan. 2012. But I think that’s where the comparison ends. I have written something like 55 posts by now, many very substantial, highly informative posts with tons of really great pics about world cultures and travel, especially Russia and China, elections predictions, feng shui articles, and other unique and great stuff you won’t find anywhere else. As a result, I get tons of search engine viewings. In 6 months I have almost 20,000 hits. I noticed that one of the blogs Russel mentioned has something like 22,000 hits with what, 6 short posts?

    Every day I get at least hundreds of hits, especially for my posts about Russia and China. Many, as I mentioned, come from search engines from all over the world. Someone suggested in a comment that search engine hits may result in likes. This is almost NEVER the case, because people who visit your blog that way are interested in specific info they were searching for. They, most likely, don’t have a WordPress account, therefore can’t just click on like that easily. I think they have to sign in, provide email, etc. Very few have time and patience. Even if they really loved your post. I get comments sometimes, often from foreign countries. But these people hardly ever click on likes.

    I also have close to 200 subscribers, but still get VERY few likes. Oftentimes, I get more comments than likes. It actually saddens me, because I put all that work into my posts. I put them out, so people could learn something, experience things they wouldn’t be able to experience otherwise. In return, I’d like to see at least some response and validation. At the same time, I see a lot of other blogs, with posts that are puny, oftentimes not even remotely interesting or even nonsensical, and they somehow get tons and tons of likes and comments. I do realize that perhaps these people have been around for a while. But looking at examples Russel provides, this argument flies out the window.

    Yes, it is possible that these people had previous blogs with a large base of followers. It is also possible that they bought following. It’s even conceivable that they are somehow famous or notorious in certain circles, but it would not be FB/Twitter for sure. See my explanation above.

    What I think though is that these new bloggers are using one trick. They go from blog to blog and subscribe to lots of blogs, as well as flood them with comments. And people reciprocate. Unfortunately, many people who like as return courtesy, don’t even read the posts. But all these hundreds of likes make one look good, even if there is absolutely no content to back it up. Meanwhile, the really great blogs seem deserted, because their authors actually spend time creating content and have no time left to fleet around randomly.

    As a result, a potentially great tool, which is supposed to be used as validation and recognition of someone’s efforts to provide great content, is corrupted. Unfortunately, social media can be a blessing and a curse. And often, it is too easy to manipulate it.

    I am usually not the one to complain or lament. I try to find a silver lining in every cloud. But this one does hit too close to home.

    Cheers and hope I contributed to the discussion.

    Now I’m totally confused.

    I don’t spend a lot of time at Facebook, so my followers there have remained static.

    I don’t Tweet since I’m not a Twit, so I have no followers there.

    Since June 4 when I published this post, I’ve been keeping track of my Follwers, almost minute by minute.

    For the last two hours I have been out back creating hanging baskets. During that time I gained 2 WordPress followers but 12 followers total! Huh? Where did the other 10 come from? They didn’t come from Facebook! Do I need to call Ghostbusters?

    I wonder this too… it took me almost 2 years to get noticed and people starting to follow other than a handful of friends and family. I now get over 100 hits in a few days, something that would take a few weeks before. I still haven’t had that many likes or comments. Then to see someone who has been blogging only a few weeks has been Freshly Pressed! Makes you wonder….? Is there a secret society of bloggers that we don’t know about? Sometimes the amount of likes is staggering for content that isn’t even that good. Again I wonder… Let me know if you figure it out πŸ˜‰

My other blogs were all connected to FB at one time, but somehow they got disconnected, so they don’t show my FB friends as followers. I think that’s a misrepresentation because certainly all my “friends” on FB don’t follow or even look at my blog! Weird. Maybe some people Likes and Comments come b/c they do a lot of social networking including Twitter and others I don’t even know about!

    Anyway, it’s a very interesting question Russell, so if you find the answer I hope you’ll let us all know!

    The blogger has lots of friends who he or she threatens unless they leave likes or comments on their blog. That’s one possibility.

    Thanks for camping out on my blog.

        I was talking about bloggers with little posting but loads of traffic in general. It’s never a bad idea to have the support of friends and family. My family members don’t bother to read my blog, nor do my closest friends. This okay because I don’t blog for them anyway.

          I understand about family and friends. I come from a large (and I mean LARGE) Mormon and Catholic family — billions and billions and billions of relatives. If I wasn’t estranged from both sides, I could have billions and billions and billions of followers and likes.

          I believe the guy I linked to is over in Nigeria, which is where all the spam, phishing, and fraud emails come from. It would not surprise me if he is a spammer and simply uses his spam program to play games with the WordPress blogging world.

          JMHO.

      I’m sure a lot of people do. I am guilty on the extremely long blog posts. I’ll start reading but if the text isn’t doing anything for me, I’ll just click the LIKE button and move on. That’s one reason why I like to camp out, though, instead of just visiting one blog post. I always try to visit at least five blog posts at a minimum for any one person as I think that provides me with a pretty good view of the person and his/her blog.

      Yesterday I visited a blog that had 10,469 followers and the most recent blog post had 1,147 comments. His WordPress blog has only been up since mid-May and he only had 16 blog posts. I couldn’t find him on Facebook so I just don’t have a clue……………..

        Tres bizarre. I am working on learning not to let it bother me…heck, when I think about it…if someone had told me years ago that 50 people would be interested in reading my writing or hearing what I had to say, I would have been ecstatic! I’ve definitely toned down my ambitions when it comes to blogging…
