Does using DISQUS make people comment more?


I am feeling the effect of seeing DISQUS on certain blogs in that it makes me more likely to comment. Is this true for others here? Does any blog/site owner have data on increased comment counts after using DISQUS?

I don't have stats, but I know that when I visit a site that uses Disqus I'm more likely to comment. I hate filling in the personal information form repeatedly, and this way, my comments always link back to my site, and I can keep track of all my comments in one place.

Actually for me more the most important factor to comment is valuable or interesting information for me. When i see it, i comment and even try to share with others. The second factor is a blogger, who has earned good reputation and write precious info, share His knowledge. I think whether the site uses Disqus or no, there's no difference

  • slightly outside the point but i get that for you, having a centralized comment profile and management system does nothing to reduce the friction of commenting. – Eric 14 years ago


Disqus versus requiring people to make accounts on your site. Disqus will win out.
Versus anonymous comments I'm not sure, but anonymous comments usually require capture or something annoying.

Disqus uses JavaScript embed code and the comment content won't be indexed by search engines on your page. That may or may not be important to you but it's something worth considering.

  • If anonymous comments are used, it should well advertised. If not I will always assume there is a hidden register requirement somewhere. There may be more users like me. – Imbrondir 12 years ago


It is a great system. We are using it on a site and we are now receiving many more comments. Spam isn't an issue either. We recommend it to anyone who needs a commenting system.

It's true for me because I like the design of disqus. Any other commentating system with a similar design would encourage me as well.
