When I first implemented the Comment Karma I thought it would be cool if there was a ranking system to see what comments people liked best. Dillsmack banged out some code but also had a good idea to pull there site/avatar from MyBlogLog
. You can see the first beta on the sidebar.
Some interesting notes… after setting this up commenting on the site has increased almost 30% and votes on comments has increased over 200%. Also we noticed people who did not have a MyBlogLog account now have one cause it pulls there info from there. I just hope the top commenter’s servers are up to the WAVE OF TRAFFIC coming there way. Eventually I would like to have it be like top commenters this week or this month… That was my original thought anyway.
Regardless if you happen to see a error or something over there its cause we develop on the live box. (YA THATS HOW WE ROLL)
How hot is MyBlogLog? Looking at my statistics for this month about 10% of my referal traffic comes from mybloglog.com. That is more then Google. if you are not using it I HIGHLY suggest it. I talked to some Yahoo execs in Las Vegas last week about it and man they are SUPER excited about all the new integrations in store with it. I have not seen them this excited about a acquisition since flickr.
