Amazing lol…

Seems like just yesterday I made my first post….

Its hard to imagine 60k comments.ร‚ย ร‚ย  Especially when about 80% of them are manually approved with all the spam filters we have.

  1. Congrats on the milestone of 60,000 comments. That is a heck of an achievement. Looks like you got 3 plugins to update too ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow that’s a lot of comments to approve by hand. Congrats and keep up the good work!

  3. thats a lot of frickin comments. nice to have an opinion that matters to so many people

  4. It seems like your popularity has gone to an all new high. Very nice. I smell a pork product on the burner.

  5. Congrats.

    Oh, and I checked out your first post, btw. Seems like dupe content to me, dude, cause I’m SURE I’ve seen that post some other place before.

    Well done, though.

  6. That’s a lot of comments!

    What plugin are you using that gives you a running count on how many comments your site has?

  7. A lot of manually approved comments then. 60K is a great achievement though. Only a few more months till 100K

  8. very impressive…im at about 200 lol but then again my blog is only 2 months old

  9. Wow! That’s a lot of comments to review and approve. How much time do you spend each day approving comments?

  10. My first comment showed up pretty fast in a few minutes, and subsequent one immediately. That’s some fast manual approving.

  11. By the way did you change your HOME PAGE TITLE Today 3 times , just to take a good screenshot ? :p

  12. 600,000 more shoe. I’m trying to learn how to get my users to do this. Comments are very important when it comes to organic searches I am finding. Again, congrats and many more.

  13. […] 60,000 Comments – ShoeMoneyร‚ยฎ. […]

  14. Thats definitely a lot of comments to approve by hand. I thought my 20-40 comments every couple hours was a big deal!

  15. Do you have to set up your site on a load balanced system? There aren’t many mega WordPress sites out there, and they all seem to have custom solutions for handling the volume.

  16. Hahaha, Yeah thats not that many. It might be some de-activated plugins. I think I have 7 to update myself.

  17. Depends on what version of wordpress your using Lyndon. If you need any help just follow my link to my contact form and I’ll assist you.

  18. It usually does specially with that many comments marked as not spam. I wonder what his AKISMET spam count is. I’m at 500,000 for that but then again im really popular in terms of Spam!

  19. …and 90% are people that are just trying to get Macbooks ….. (pointing to himself)

  20. 60,000 comments is indeed quite an achievement. Congratulations, Jeremy, and may the second 60,000 come in half the time! It took you just shy of three years to achieve this. Impressive indeed!

  21. Shoemoney is indeed a wonderful testimonial to the effectiveness of WordPress in the blogosphere. VIVA WORDPRESS indeed!

  22. Went to check pout the first post too, and this is what I got when clicking the link…..
    “Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!” I am sure that wasn’t the first post, please help me out here!

  23. Averaged out. Recently the numbers are higher. A graph showing the growth curve would be nice. Now that Jeremy is running contests I’ve definitely noticed an increase in comments posted, and lots of new “faces” on this blog too.

  24. Wow, that’s a lot of comments. I notice that is just the approved comments, if you add in the spam/removed comments how many would that be? Manually approving comments is hard work, but it’s the only way to ensure quality – automated filters will never be as smart as a human being.

  25. That is a sick milestone. Congrats!

    By the way, care to share the size of your database? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. congratulations!!! that was a tough work, ๐Ÿ˜‰

    keep it up pal.

  27. Thats amazing…
    Yours is not a blog, but a forum ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Thanks to us ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. well thats really a lots of comments.i love to see my blog with that kind of amount of comment:)Congrats though

  29. We’ll have to wait for him to post it, if he does. I don’t know, I have more respect for shoemoney, but john looks like he gets more traffic.

  30. My site still hasn’t even broken the 1,000 comment mark, but congrats on the achievement! And Geiger, if you want to know how many comments John Chow has, just look at the number at the end of a comment you posted in the URL

  31. Did you both check a few comments above?
    John said he has more than 100,000 comments..

  32. It probably will come in half the time. That is a great achievement. There are a lot of comments per post as well.

  33. that would be nice to see… though I am sure hard to measure with affiliate links and other things, but an estimate would be nice…

  34. even on his first post he got 5 comments , and i’m sure if the comments were not closed he would have much more !

  35. mine has broke the 40k Comments the only difference is that they are all SPAM COMMENTS !

  36. Average of 150 comments / post

    2 posts / day

    100 – 60 = 40 k

    40 000 / 300 = in aproximately 133, 33 and for the % of error let say he will have his 100K during the next 6 months ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. Wow congratulations! That’s quite an accomplishment. Better celebrate with a beer at Lazlo’s tonight.

  38. wow!.. that’s a lot of comment to moderate..

    hope my blog receive that lots of comments someday!..

  39. Congratulations Jeremy.
    You are a true inspirational blogger.
    I wish I will reach a position like you one day.

  40. I’m good, but thanks for the offer ๐Ÿ™‚

    Didn’t realize it was added to 2.6, since I have upgraded yet. But I will be doing it soon.

  41. It’s really amazing how many of them have the same tone of voice and spelling errors too. We must all think alike! Your really amazing tho and a very funny guy.

  42. wow that is an impressive number of comments. 60,000 comments, that seem so far-fetched to me.

  43. That’s a lot of comments. John Chow has twice that but nonetheless that’s a ton!

  44. Over 110,000 for John. I wish you guys would leave your posts open for comments longer. You would definitely have a lot more.

  45. congrats on the 60k …. I think I’d be ecstatic with just 60 so I can’t even imagine moderating 60,000 + comments.

  46. Congratulation to you that is big achievement for 3 years from the day you start blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. Awesome work Jeremy. I cannot tell you how impressed I am at that! Damn, you get 100 commments for writing a post about how many comments you get. Brilliant!!!!

  48. Dang shoe, that is alot of comments.

    I agree with the guy who just posted. you write you just hit 60k comments, and you get another 100. But then, just about anything you write is worth that many comments.

    Have you figured out how much each comment is worth to the value of the income of the blog?

  49. I got some 120 or 130 :p
    hehe, to be honest, I didnt even think I’d get to 100 lol

  50. John Chow’s posts definitely is seen with more comments. 100,000 is another Insanic value..Shocking ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  51. haha nope. Forum Posts and comments can definitely not be compared. Posts are way too fast than comments. Even a comparison is like woah, too much hehe.

  52. Blogs gets LOADS of spam thats why. Everyday 100s of spammy porn comments with full of links. I hate it. My blog is not even popular and I get 100s daily…

  53. Yes it’s pretty cool that a lot of people are commenting here + the new contest has encouraged evryone to comment.

  54. lol is the contest effect, people are working hard to get the shoemoney tshirt ๐Ÿ˜›

  55. […] posted that he recently passed the 60,000 comments mark. That’s a lot of comments for any blog. Of course, it also made me check how many […]

  56. great accomplishment – I have a blog that probably have 10,000 unapproved spam posts
