Engaging with readers through comments and feedback should be one of the most important goals of any blog. It is why I want us to consider the benefits of the Disqus commenting system.
Below are some benefits of blog commenting.

Why Commenting Is Important for Your Blog
We cannot overemphasise the benefits of blog commenting. Therefore, I’ve written extensively about the importance of having a corporate blog or company blog. Creating new or optimising existing blog posts is a critical aspect of many SEO services offered by agencies. These posts are vital in boosting your online presence and attracting new friendly relationships with other blog owners or new business opportunities for your organisation.
If you’re a blog owner, I’m sure you already know the benefits of blog commenting and the value of your blog in attracting organic web traffic or search engine traffic. If not, then maybe you’ve been publishing irrelevant blog articles. The value of a blog in helping your business create a viable online presence is clear when it starts attracting blog links and blog comments.
These days publishing articles through a blog post is becoming difficult for small businesses because readers are not commenting on blogs. And even when they do comment on your blog post, most are mainly spam comments that they want to use to direct traffic to their websites and not domain authority blog comments.
The comment box is one of the critical features that promote good engagement and build a professional relationship with avid readers. There are many different comment box and depending on the platform on which you create your blog; it may have its default comment box.
However, with time, many bloggers discover that their default comment box is no longer adequate for organic search. It leads many to search for suitable alternatives like Disqus, Livefyre, etc.
If you have read many blogs by now, you are probably aware of the Disqus comment box. It is gradually becoming one of the most popular commenting platforms today among avid readers.
In the past, The Mauco Blog used to use this platform. While it’s an excellent platform, we were not getting the desired results, so we discontinued it. But who knows, we may go back to it in future. Only time will tell. After all, what’s a blog without comment, right?
So what are some of the reasons I chose to adopt Disqus as our former blog comment platform?
Disqus is used by some of the most significant websites and blogs on the internet today. It integrates seamlessly into your current website or blog content regardless of the platform of your blog. With a few quick and easy steps, you can have your new commenting system up and running in no time and start reaping the benefit of blog commenting. The only time-consuming part would be exporting your comments from your existing comment box to Disqus. If you have accumulated several thousands of words already, this should take a while to export to Disqus.
Disqus is also a comprehensive real-time commenting box. It makes it the perfect choice for those who want to participate in breaking news, hot discussions, live events and video content.
One of the main advantages of blog commenting using Disqus is that it allows your readers to log in with Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Disqus and OpenID. It eliminates the need for you to create new accounts on every blog.
If you choose to go with Twitter or Facebook, you’ll also have the option of sharing your blog content and comment with your friends on Twitter or Facebook. It increases the viral promotion of a comment on your blog.
If the person commenting already has a Disqus profile, their avatar and commenting history on other websites will also be visible. It helps people find other popular blogs of similar interests with the possibility of cross-promoting blogs. It will help you not to have a static blog because you’ll be generating organic traffic and quality traffic. A good marketing strategy, don’t you think so?
These are some of the benefits I considered when adopting the Disqus commenting system in the past. I wanted to interact and connect more with all readers of this blog. I intended to have it help promote my blog content, affiliate marketing, content marketing, building inbound links, and other aspects of my digital marketing. I also thought that by producing quality content and having a relevant comment, I could reap some benefits in SEO. But alas, in business (online marketing included), things don’t always go according to plan.
