What Comment System Should I Use on my Wordpress Blog?

15 replies
Hi everyone, I have an relatively new internet marketing blog and so far I have only been allowing people to comment with their Facebook accounts. I have been looking around at other internet marketing blogs out there and they are all using Commentluv. I thought Facebook would be better because when someone comments, then their friends on Facebook will see it (which could mean more traffic). I only want to stick to one commenting system, so which one do you recommend? Facebook or Commentluv?

    I've tried multiple systems and keep going back to the original system. I have a good number of mobile users and the other comments don't work well with mobile. My spam is through the roof, but it's easy for my human visitors to use.

    If I had to pick one of those two however, it would definitely be Facebook Comments

    I would honestly use Discus. It looks awesome, and I'm jealous of people that use it.



    Only problem, is that I'm 2000% lazy... Too lazy to integrate it.

    (Can anyone tell me how easy it is to integrate + if it carries over my old comments? I don't see how it would, but am curious to hear from you?).

      It's pretty simple: There's a free plugin, plus the option to import existing comments. The only issue is that the import isn't perfect, or at least it wasn't for me. If you like that comment system, then it's worth the 15 minute setup.

    Disqus is always my first choice. I've seen sites have success with Facebook comments too though.

    I like the Facebook commenting system for blogs for exactly the same reason that you do as any comment made by the person may appear on their own feed for friends to see. Being able to have a blog comment go viral on Facebook without any effort on your part is priceless.

    I've always found I get the most amount of comments using the regular commenting system. I do think Disqus fits well in tech-related blogs though, where most visitors will likely be familiar with Disqus anyway.

    There are a lot of ways to measure success with a blog. You could measure readership, bounce rates, time on site,or conversions to your mailing list.
    But, one of my favorites has always been commenting.
    So I have used Disqus system for allow my visitors to comment on my blog posts. It`s free and gives the user multiple option to sign up and start commenting.

    I read somewhere (perhaps Neil Patel) that if you use the original system, any comments made will be picked up by Google, while Disquis and others don't. So if you're blog post is about "widgets" and you have 30 comments all about "widgets" using lsi keywords, then it may help you in the SERP's.

    I have no idea whether or not this is true.

    I have however, used a number of different commenting systems and always seem to revert back to the original because it tends to attract more comments (at least in my experience).

    I am previously used jetpack comment system on blog and getting a lot of spam comments. Now I move to disqus and its very intuitive to use and manage and helps me to prevent spam comments.
