Gravatars and Site Links: Here I Go Again

In the last month, I have had 33 new followers who had no link to their blog or website attached to their Gravatar image or graphic.

That is 33 people I am unable to thank for following, and 33 blogs or sites I am unable to view, comment on, or perhaps follow.

Regular readers will no doubt yawn, as I try once again to advise you how to do this.

But if you do not take my advice, your blog will remain unknown, impossible to find, and you will be wondering why nobody ever comments, or leaves a ‘Like’.

Please read these posts and links, and connect your Gravatar to your blog or website. It is not difficult, even I managed it.

You can thank me later.

      1. Pete, I can’t thank you enough for your advice. I have been blogging painstakingly since December and always felt something was missing. Slowly the missing pieces are coming together. It is really nice of you to help us newbies.
        Best wishes

  1. I see so many blogs with all the WordPress default language and no individual content. Either they are just getting started or they simply need a presence from which to create fake comments and spam. I almost wager on the latter.

  2. There’s a lot for new bloggers to do. A bit overwhelming perhaps. But a Gravatar with profile linked to blog is important…along with actually writing posts. Odd how many keep “Coming Soon. Check back” pages up for months or longer. Not really here for the blogging maybe

  3. At the very start, I linked my Gravatar profile thingymajig to a different website to my own (we had very similar web addresses). Anyway, I don’t think they were active, but they still ended up reaping the rewards of any of my likes or comments! I still wonder if I missed out on any potential readers who didn’t realise… Luckily, it’s fixed nowadays.

    1. Glad to hear you noticed, and fixed the link. I check those every time I get a follower, and always use it to go over and thank them for following. Over the years, I have found hundreds who did not link their blog or site.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Some followers have even deactivated their sites. I am lucky nowadays if I have 10 or 15 followers who make comments. Some follow one’s blog in the that you would follow them back. I’d rather have those followers who sincerely and regularly read my posts.
