Disqus replacement for WordPress and non CMS websites

JointComments is a Disqus alternative, a free comment software for WordPress and other CMS. Adding a comment widget to your website has a lot benefits, and we will talk about them in this post.

Comments turn your blog into a living, breathing document: Fabrizio Van Marciano relates blogging to eating toast. He argues that blogging without comments is like toast without jam and butter. It’s bland. It’s boring. But the engagement that blogging creates is like warm buttery toast that melts in your mouth. Why do you think I always ask questions at the end of my blogs? I want people to respond. It provides a way for people to engage beyond just reading my words. It starts a conversation. Moderating your comment section can be a major time suck. Even spam-moderation tools and plugins won’t catch everything. A 99.95% accuracy against spam bots also doesn’t mean they’ll catch your human spammers. A human spammer is just like a regular commenter, only with an agenda. This means you have to moderate those comments yourself.

So which argument makes the most sense for your readers and your business? Let’s take a look at what the data says… Determining whether blog comments are generating revenue for your business is tricky because they don’t directly lead to sales. But is it possible that having blog comments indirectly increases your revenue? When it comes to your content marketing, you can safely assume that the more traffic you get, the more revenue you’ll be able to generate. So the question becomes, do blog comments lead to more traffic?

Comments bring in credibility. Normal comments have a ‘Name’ field. Now think what happens if I put in ‘Bill Gates’ in that field. Everyone will assume its a fake person. But what happens is often there are popular people who might like your content. These are not necessarily billionaires, but people with authority in their chosen fields. What you want to do is to give credibility to people who are commenting on your blog. If the same comment I was talking about earlier was from Bill Gates’s authorized JointComments account, people would automatically trust it. Have you integrated JointComments comments on your blog? What benefits you have seen after using it, and any cons you know of? Also, do share which method you used to add JointComments comments on your blog?
