How to measure blog comments and forum discussions
Posted By Marketwired On September 3, 2010 @ 2:44 pm In IR/PR | 1 Comment
After taking a week off, I forgot how quickly the chat goes by during the short hour. Props to Garry Przyklenk, Marketwire’s online marketing manager, for taking the reins during last week’s #smmeasure chat  and to thank everyone who participated and helped spread the word. A big thanks to Sysomos’ Community Manager Sheldon Levine @sysomos for co-hosting the chat.
#smmeasure chat #6 recap
Last week’s chat covered first-glance metrics, rules of engagement, privacy and disclosure. This week we talked about comments and discussions. Below is just a small taste of the great conversation we had, but this recap will not do the chat justice. I recommend that you take a look at the full transcript  for a more thorough account of what went down.
Q1: What are your top etiquette rules for commenting?
Q2: Do you leave a link to an article or links to your social media profiles when you comment?
Q3: What tools do you use to find blogs/articles to comment on?
Others include Wikio, Google Blog Search, Scribnia, and socialmention.com. The most popular “tool” to find blogs/articles to comment on was Twitter.
Q4: How do you measure relevant comments on blogs, forums and other discussion areas?
Q5: What action do you take after you”ve collected the measurement data? What are your next steps?
Funniest Tweets of the Chat
We have a nomination for Twitter’s theme music:
In addition to creative minds, we have comedians. What a fun group!
