How do comment variables work?
« on: October 13, 2010, 03:12:03 PM »
All comment posting tools support webmaster-defined variables to make each comment message extremely targeted, relevant and unique. Comment examples below explain how variables work. First of all, here is the list of supported variables:


%TITLE% - Title of blog entry or webpage with comments form (title is parsed automatically);
%ANCHOR_TEXT% - Anchor text of promoted domain (anchor text is added by webmaster using 'Add New Domains' section, it can also be modified later using 'Edit Domains' section);
%KEYWORD% - One of keywords used by the software to find webpages (keywords are added by webmaster using 'Add New Keywords' section);
%URL% - The address of promoted domain;
%ADMIN_EMAIL% - Email address of webmaster (this email can be modified using 'General Settings' section);
%DAY% - Current day of the week;


Let's say that you installed the software using email address 'some@email.com', added domain name http://www.lipskas.com/ to be promoted, and assigned anchor text 'Business Blog' to it. Then you assigned keywords 'make money', 'money making' and 'online income' to this domain. Finally, let's say that you wrote this comment for http://www.lipskas.com domain:


I was searching for %KEYWORD% via Google on %DAY%, and I found your page %TITLE% to be extremely relevant to %ANCHOR_TEXT%. I would like to cooperate with you on my website %URL%, so please email me at %ADMIN_EMAIL% if you are interested.


Now let's say that today is Friday, the software randomly select keyword 'money making' and finds 2 relevant webpages with titles 'Make money online' and 'Business tips'. So automatically posted comments will look different on each site. This is how messages will look:


1st site -  I was searching for money making via Google on Friday, and I found your page Make money online to be extremely relevant to Business Blog. I would like to cooperate with you on my website http://www.lipskas.com/, so please email me at some@email.com if you are interested.
2nd site -  I was searching for money making via Google on Friday, and I found your page Business tips to be extremely relevant to Business Blog. I would like to cooperate with you on my website http://www.lipskas.com/, so please email me at some@email.com if you are interested.


Please note that different comment posting tools might not support all of these variables, and you should always check supported variables in each tool by moving your mouse over green help icon (displaying '?' symbol) in 'Add New Comments' section for more details. This interactive help section will also include instructions of correct variables usage depending on selected tool.
