I suspect mostly it is for the points but there are other possibilities.  

I have commented on a few blogs with some totally generic comment because their blog was so poorly written and I couldn't think of anything good to say.   However, I still still wanted to encourage them to keep trying because people ARE reading.  I've even gone so far as to offer FREE editing services to help them.  

There are, however, those trolls that slap their promotional taglines anywhere and everywhere.  There are also courses that teach people to comment on other people's blogs to get exposure for themselves.  The part of the course they are forgetting is to add value to the conversation.  

I do like Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 positive spin. There is always more than one side to a coin.  

Have a great day selling furniture, Roger D. Mucci !

Roger,

Glad you asked this.  It is so obvious when someone has not read the post by the comment that makes no sense.  My fave is the comment specialist who basically copies your contact information and says, for all your real estate needs call Roger...You know the one.  LOL A

I think it's odd when people randomly comment and it's obvious they didn't read any part of the blog.  The ones who comment two and three times on every blog, saying stuff that doesn't make sense....WTF??

It must be the 25, 50 or 75 points.

Those types of commenters are what I call "gangsta". They drive-by and spray their pablum all over the board, and don't care who they hit.

The process that has been the incentive for many of my comments is simply to reciprocate with comments after the member has commented on my blogs. I often comment on market reports or listings that are not of interest to me.

Sometimes, a comments is just a small way to pay it forward.

 Why do you look at it THAT way.

Could it not be their way of YOU getting a few points for your effort.

To let you know someone IS reading.

And they may be saying, 'Up your game and there are likes and reblogs in your future."

Why go negative?
