Recently I made a post about 9 Reasons you must using Disqus comment system, and I activated the plugin too on this blog until about the last 20 minutes. I find that Disqus is good, even it is really good and I will add two more advantages of using Disqus comment system.
But you must be curious, if it is that good, why I turn it off? OK I will tell you why, but after I give you two more reasons to use Disqus, deal? Deal, off course!
1. Disqus is spam free
Using Disqus will give every blogger dream of getting of off spam comments. That was totally right from my experience here. Because everyone trying enter the system will have to logged in first with their username and or social media account. It is a bad practice of destroying your image and brand if you use Disqus for spamming.
More over, Disqus is really strict to any trackback to your post. No trackback is appear if anyone linking to you. It even hide any trackback from your WordPress dashboard, Disqus simply don’t count it even it still stored on your database and will be there when it is off.
2. Disqus seamlessly integrated to your Social Network Profile
Just like what I said before, you will need to login to the account using your user and password or social media profiles if you wanna make a comment. It is a time saving because you don’t ever need to enter the same credential again and again, just click the icon and you’re set.
Now why I Deactivated it?
It is simply personal. The first thing is it don’t fit this theme, I hate how it is appeared under every single post and page. Disqus is even not appear when I try to use Chun theme by Justin Tadlock.
The second is it looks like prevent anyone to join the discussion if they don’t already have the account. That is some kind of bad experience for you, my reader.
I know this blog is new, and that’s why I need a feedback from every one reading my post. It is important to me now to get as many comments as possible because it will make me motivated to publish more and more article, feedback is a need for this blog.
Maybe Disqus is good for well established blog, but not for me now.
Have any thought about it? Comment bellow please, now it’s easier!
