Add Visitors Comments Policy to Your Blogger Blog

We the blogger from the blogspot platform have to deal a lot of headache from of the comment spam - like the comment will have word like "Great post" or "interesting" and then a URL pointing to some XXX site or any other site not related to the topic. For this reason we makes the comment section the moderated type because the blogger.com does not provide plugin like Akismet anti-spam filter, which catches majority of the comment spam in the wordpress blog.

Many of our visitors do not like these features because this doesn't credit to instant commenting but believe me it is very much necessary because in my previous blogging, I use to receive many spam comments which is totally not related to the content. So to acknowledge your readers about this, you can add comment policy to your blogger comment section. Blogger.com has added a features that allow users to display a "comment policy" for their blogs that is shown to any visitor who intends to write a comment on some blog post.

When a visitor opens your comment page, he will see this policy just above the comment text area. For example, see the image below.



The comment policy of this blog says " Comments posted on Blogging Finger are moderated and will be approved only if they are related to topic and not abusive. Please do not include URLs in the comment box - gedet"

So how to add comment policy on your blog?

  1. You just login your blogger account.
  2. Click on the setting of the relevant blog from the dashboard.
  3. Now click on the comments tab and now look for the text " Comment Form Message", similar to image shown below, click the image to enlarge it and note the coding.


Isn't it looking cool???

It is not any hack, but comes in the blogger itself but very few of the bloggers are using these features. Either they are not aware of this features or they do not know how to use it. If you are using blogger platform, are you using this features - how to add comment policy on the blogger blog?
