Comments are the most important part of blogging these days – they can be done for fun, sharing information or just to convey gratitude for a great post. Any good post does not wait to be on top of the popularity chart, but of course anticipate knowing what people think about it. Hence, we denote comments as “Valuable Material”. Such comments are not only a social action, but also serve the purpose adding more importance to the post. In fact, you can be a good commenter by talking and engaging in discussions on your and various blogs across Web 2.0. We all learn about improving our comments idea via do-follow blogs and forums, but wouldn’t it be great to consolidate all the information shared? Of course it would be.

Of late, I have got few comments asking on how do I keep track of all my comments under one roof. The two word answer is “BackType Plugin”. “BackType is a real-time, conversational search engine. We index and connect online conversations from across the web in real-time, so you can see what people are saying about topics that interest you”.
