Do the Comments Affect Rank?

I'm just curious. I still have some pages where the comments are not being counted. If they don't affect the page rank then it doesn't really matter.

I really don't know, Ragtimelil. But I know in the past I've netted a bit of traffic because of the comments, extra search terms are added. And I suppose, if nothing else, it shows Google that users are engaging with the content.

Not sure, I had assumed it does because if I order my stats. page by rank the lowest one has no comments and yet the traffic to it is better than for some of my other higher ranking Wizzley articles. I dare say someone else will know more, I even think I read a Wizzley on the subject in the past.

My counter has been off for almost 3 weeks now. It seems to miss the first 2 comments and then kicks in after that. I'm getting very discouraged.

So the comments are counted correctly from the third comment on? Is that correct? That would be really helpful to know ...

Might be that the first 2 comments are not counted. My lowest-ranking page is at 23%, and that's with 2 comments, 1 like, and 50 total visitors.

Okay, I've just found a bug, that may have been responsible for the miscounting! All comment numbers *should* now be correct and I couldn't spot any wrong numbers so far. SmileSmileSmileSmile

Sorry. I was out walking the dogs. It looks much better. I see one that didn't show up but it just got posted. Maybe it takes a little time. I'll keep an eye on it.

THANKS!
