  1. I don’t believe in this. First or last , whatever it may be, like the quality of post, quality of comment is also important. The first comment may attract the author but I don’t think it will attract others also. Google alert is a good option to track the topics but it’s purely depends upon the indexing, it can vary.

  2. I come here to read the professional biography of different IT professional and always got something new to apply to my own profile. Your way of describing professional biographies is just awesome.
