Now, this blog is using DISQUS

I decided to switch the commenting system for this blog, from WordPress’ built-in commenting system feature to DISQUS. I was not sure which hosted service I wanted to use — DISQUS and Intense Debate came into consideration. Here are some reasons why I use external commenting system service right now:

  • DISQUS provides integration with other services like Twitter, Facebook and also OpenID. This features can be activated on WordPress-powered blogs using plugins. But, if DISQUS already has this feature, why not?
  • DISQUS also offers spam filter mechanism. I’m tired of spam. Akismet and TypePad Antispam plugin did a great job. Right now, I rely on DISQUS spam filter. And I have Akismet activated also.
  • I’m happy with how DISQUS display blog comments. Options can be managed directly from the dashboard.

The migration process was easy. It took less than 30 minutes to import all my comments (there were around 3,100 comments), and I got zero problem. It just worked.

  1. Tonight, all websites using Disqus now have the option to enable … think Disqus is underestimating the risk blog owners are taking by …

  2. The Disqus systems is the best. We have been using it on one of our sites. We now receive many more comments and less spam. We recommended the system. By the way, we have never had a problem posting or receiving posts.

  3. Definitely Facebook (Like Pages and Communities) are the
    first and foremost platform to get as many users as good your campaigns is
    running. Although you need to set up blogs first for engaging your users with
    you because when you provide information then they could take interest in your
    business and i believe SocialAliens(dot)com most trustable place to buy Real
    Targeted Facebook fans.

  4. All of sweet replays here with have good opinion.I read this article very carefully & glad to visit here.
    I have no doubt to read this excellent post.I came to understand that I need to look at blog commenting and moderation differently.
