Comments Are Back For Now

With added filters and moderation.

Here’s to all the trolls (the same three guys with 48 different IP addresses) in the comments who think we brought them back because visits went down.

We removed them on July 15. Here’s are our unique visitors since.

By day:

By week:

[The last one is less than three days.]

And as you can see, visits were up 3% since we took them down.

The commenters are not as important as they think they are and make up .1% of the audience. Without being rude to them (some are great, the finest people!), you are inconsequential to Crossing Broad, as a business. But, some of you are funny. Perhaps it’s time for an AMA.

Or maybe I’ll wait until after we roll out our Philly Sports Media Power Rankings in September.

Also, I’m back, baby.

    I haven’t been called inconsequential since my divorce. Those were the days.

    Unique visitors were unchanged, but how about page views (and as a result, ad views) ? Not doubting you, but I think we’re probably not hearing the whole story. That’s to be expected; why would you tell outsiders anything about how you choose to run your business. That being said, you put the comments back and made a post about it for a reason.

      page views also up slightly and really not relevant to bottom line

    I remember the comments on a post about Ryan Howard’s retirement being way over the line racist. Then the ability to comment was gone like the next day.

    Is that when you decided to pull them?

    Do it again for 6 months + please.
