In this article we will be clarifying some of our syndication and comments policies.
I’ll be quick with this one, since we’re not discussing recycling or environmental issues in this post. I just wanted to clarify some of our blog site’s policies, with respect to syndication of our content and blog comments.
We’re now displaying the Creative Commons (Some Rights Reserved) License in this blog. What this means is that if you want to copy, distribute, or transmit any of our articles or posts, you may do so, provided that:
- you give full attribution to Pacebutler Recycling Blog as the original source of the material you’re copying AND you link back to the original article.
- you don’t use the copied material for commercial purposes; and
- you do not alter, transform, or build on the material being copied.
Any material can be copied under the above conditions, and transmitted through RSS feed, a website, ezine, newsletters, email comminications, etc. For a full explanation of this license, please see the Creative Commons license page.
This blog is listed in the Do Follow Blogs Directory and in dozens of other sites where do-follow lists exist. This means that when you make a comment in this blog and link back to your site, the search engine bots that regularly crawl this site will follow your link, giving your page additional SEO points. We decided on this policy when we first started this blog, so as to encourage and reward in a small way, our visitors who make on-topic and relevant comments.
This doesn’t mean, however, that we will welcome and post ALL comments in our blog. I’m not even talking about the mindless comment spam by bots that are automatically filtered by Akismet. Human-generated comments are welcome, but because of our do-follow policy we’re stricter than most sites when it comes to approving comments.
You can link back to your site and you can even use your keywords as anchor text, but if your comment is one of those “nice post” and “thanks, enjoyed this site a lot” type of comments, clearly not adding anything of value to the conversation, I can assure you – that comment will never see the light of day in this blog.
Okay, that’s all for today, folks, I hope I’ve clarified enough how we do business in this site. Looking forward to reading your relevant and substantive comments in my subsequent posts.
Have a great week ahead!
