This post is intended to be a whirlwind of the three main competing comment communities; Intense Debate, Disqus and the newly rebranded ECHO.

I know from experience people, still, always want to talk SEO when we start to talk comments so let’s tackle that head on...

In the beginning comments on blogs were seen as a win-win scenario.

The blog owner could see that someone cared enough about the post to comment. The blog owner got some free copy. Someone else was writing for their blog; albeit just a little paragraph or so. It was still content and content was still king. The kindly person leaving the comment got something too. In the old days they got a link back to a site of their choice.

This apparently mutually beneficial setup was so strong that many bloggers, especially blog commentators, were very happy. Many people didn't want to change. They didn't want to loose the comments or the links they could get from comments. They didn't want some odd JavaScript powered widget on their site in control of their content.

And yet it made sense to change the model.

The first problem was a lack of community.

All three of the comment communities I’ll quickly show case here had community at their heart. Sure they offered improvements on the basic commenting functionality offered by some popular blog platforms,  especially Google’s Blogger but that wasn’t the main thrust of the idea.

With ECHO, Disqus and Intense Debate comments are collected across many blogs. Once you’ve signed up to one Disqus powered blog, for example, you use the very same account to comment on others. Your comments belong to you.

For example, you can arrive at a blog for the first time, leave a comment and not only have all your avatars and profile set up but also show that the Disqus community consider you a good commentator. You’ve a high number of Disqus points earned by being part of the community elsewhere.

This works for a certain type of commentator. They might not get the link, not if the blog is using the JavaScript version of the comment community, but they get the profile boost. They get the kudos. They’re encouraged to post a thoughtful comment rather than a “me too” comment.

For the blogger, for the social media savvy blogger, this equates to a better type of commentator. These are the community builders bloggers really should be wishing for. These are the people who are more likely to blog about you and raise your own profile and generate some trusted, quality links for you.

The second problem was the fragmentation of comments.

Social media has allowed people to pass links around. People save links on delicious, on Friendfeed, Facebook and Twitter. The result of this is that people comment about those links and the web pages associated with them on Facebook, Twitter, et al...  people don’t necessary comment on the original blog any more.

ECHO, Intense Debate, Disqus and a few others have a solution for this. These platforms watch Twitter and other social sites for comments about the blog posts they’re powering the comments for. When someone tweets a response about a blog post then that response is detected and shown below the original blog post.

In effect, these comment communities act as comment search engines and gather back the fragmented responses and associate them back with the original.

Here’s an example; the comments and ‘reactions’ to my latest waffle over at my own blog.  You’ll be able to see that the short discussion it triggered occurred on Twitter and yet it is documented on my blog.

So, without further ado; my whirlwind tour of:

Intense Debate

Intense Debate has improved greatly in the last few months. They’ve gone from frustrating me to pleasing me. All along they had one big advantage. Intense Debate is owned by Automattic. That’s the same company that controls Wordpress. Needless to say the Wordpress integration of Intense Debate is jolly good.

In particular, Intense Debate is the easiest of the comment communities I know of when it comes to dealing with trackbacks. In my experience there’s less risk of trackbacks getting missed by Intense Debate and triggering the ‘old’ Wordpress alert system. This means less risk of  having to bypass your own default comment response GUI in order to (normally) reject the trackback.

Intense Debate also has its own small community of plugins. By tapping, once again, in the community Intense Debate are likely to continue to make improvements.

Against Intense Debate has been their original awkward integration with Automattic. It was not uncommon to come across challenges in migrating all your original comments from the blog into the Intense Debate system.

Intense Debate isn’t as good as tracking the real-time social media responses as ECHO. Intense Debate isn’t a strong a community as Disqus. It is, however, a relatively safe pair of hands these days.

Disqus

I use Disqus on most of my blogs because it’s easy to get set up. It becomes a self-fulfilling circle; as I use Disqus on most of my blogs most of my comment history is on Disqus and I don’t want to fragment that over more platforms than necessary.

Disqus earned my attention by being so very quick out of the gates. Disqus lead the way when it came to Facebook Connect and Twitter account integration. People can easily use their Facebook or Twitter accounts to leave a comment directly on your blog. The easier it is for your readers to comment then the more comments you’ll get.

It’s not just easy to install – it’s easy to see working. These days, if you’re using the right options, you can see tweets about your blog post appearing on the blog post as you watch.

In particular, Disqus now splits out comments and profile. You have a very strong Disqus identity and its all yours to control. If you want to go back and delete a comment you can.  Many blogs don’t simply list Disqus comments in chronological order by apply a smarter filter system so the most meaningful comments appear first and by being a respected Disqus user you’ve a greater chance of jumping to the top.

My main grumble with Disqus as been with spam. They have their own spam filtering tech but I’ve found it is easily bypassed by spammers. I fear I’ve had to block dozens of Indian IP addresses in a last ditch attempt to ban persistent (and brain dead) spammers from blogs.  I’ve checked my email in the morning to find that a single blog has been successfully carpet bombed by a single spammer.

If you’re using Disqus with Wordpress then it’s essential you integrate with Akismet.

ECHO

ECHO is the new name for JS Kit. JS Kit was an early player in the comment community and ECHO was their prestige product. ECHO’s been so successful that the company tends to be known as ECHO these days.

What ECHO did first was grab the fragmented comments left by people discussing blog posts on Twitter. It was ECHO that first showed off the integration of real-time comments elsewhere back on the parent blog.

ECHO is particularly useful when you’ve a static page that you just want to quickly zap into something that you could call “web 2.0”. It’s an easy way to turn a landing page into a conversation enhanced page.

ECHO may well be the best at quickly pulling fragmented comments back to the original posting but they’re also, in my opinion, the weakest community.

Oh; and the SEO?

Let’s put aside the fact that many of these comment communities are becoming more search engine friendly by improving their APIs and falling back to 1990 style noscript backup areas.

Let’s instead focus on the SEO advantages of having a better and more interactive blog.

For example, the more people comment on your blog then the more likely it is that you’ll have people talking about your blog. Where there is talk there are links. I’ve seen blogs link to comments.

In fact, this becomes a circle. If a reader has paused to browse though a bunch of ECHO powered comments on your most recent blog post and they see a new one appear then there’s a chance they’ll want to respond to that. That keeps the discussion going.

You also benefit from the fact that people want to improve their own comment profile. I’m much more likely to comment on your Disqus powered blog because I know my Disqus profile could pick up another “like” vote.

The fact that these comment communities integrate so well with the likes of Twitter and Facebook mean that they’re good at putting comments left on your blog into Twitter and Facebook.  A few years ago an “internet celebrity” might have left a comment on your blog and you’d have to run around to tell everyone you’d scored the comment. Today, with one of these options you’ve a chance that the “internet celebrity’s” comment is also automatically tweeted into their Twitter stream or on their Facebook status stream. You don’t need to run around and do anything – all the celeb’s followers will be able to see you’ve scored the comment.

I’m a big fan of the comment communities. They help my social media efforts and do so in a perfectly natural way. The stronger my community becomes the better the blog does in the search engines.

We’ll see more comment community action in 2010, It’s an area to watch.

I am a big big fan of Disqus.  In fact I use it on my site and unless the content is really good I usually won't comment on a site that doesn't use Disqus for precisely the reason that you mentioned-I'd like to have the opportunity of earning points and each comment seems to enhance one's opportunities to build a community around his or her comments.

That being said, I do have one small gripe but its not a big one and hopefully I get an answer from the folks over at Disqus soon.  The trackback url on my blogger blog for external links seems to have been changed to a Disqus domain instead of my own domain.  This would seem to not bode well on the SEO side.  But just yesterday I noticed some tweets linking to one of my own url's that did show up in the reaction section that Disqus puts beneath the blog comments so maybe its just much ado about nothing.

SEO-wise, I like JS Kit because of the keyword luv and comment luv plugins but I just couldn't find the plugin that would work for Blogger blogs.  This plugin makes comments on wordpress blogs followable plus automatically allows you to tie your site (keyword luv) to a keyword or in the case of comment luv-commenting on a site that uses comment love automatically gives you a back link to your latest post.

Thanks for the informative piece, Andrew!

For my two pennyworth - disqus and intense debate comments are as the article says jizzed off page.  Personally if I feel I have something worthwhile to say I wouldn't feed the ego of self important bloggers that use them but don't give me any proper credit for my contribution.  I fail to see how "but they get the profile boost."

They are pretty though.

As a blogger about social media, I feel that you are very right that comments will be a growing area to watch this year. Like you say, comments keep the conversation going. They also provide additional insight to the readers and the bloggers. Comments offer a different perspective and put a "face" to the readership.

What does an effective Internet marketing strategy involve?Comments or not ?
Identifying your goals – As in any other task, you need to determine what you expect to achieve from the Internet marketing strategy. This is very important since it would determine the approach to be followed in Internet marketing.
Getting a web presence – via the social media
Search Engine Optimisation –  People usually do not look at too many results while using a search engine. So, you would want your website to appear high in the page.

Online newsletters Publishing articles, blogs or press releases Publicising deals and holding contests via your website

Sadly this win win situation is all too often abused by the small minded members of the community. With a huge plague in comment spam, where people think that leaving a comment of "I like your blog" merits a back link to a porn site, or some radical surgery on the male member. Comment can be a powerful tool if used correctly but sadly they are not.

I've not used ECHO so far, never really had the need to as Disqus covers all the bases.

I just worry if they'd been better off tempering their growth, learn from inputs and then launch v2 with a lot of fixes, and then, when they got it all just where people are craving for it, scale, with all that this entails.

here are many “SEO Gurus” that will tell you commenting on blogs can boost your pageranking a

lot. These gurus are also the ones with page rank of 0.
You might be asking this question to yourself, “Why should I even bother with commenting then?”

Because you want to get noticed! Posting comments like “nice post!” will not get you noticed.

You want to add value into the discussion, and that will get the author of the blog to notice

you. Ask good questions or let the author know about something that was missing in the post.

Those two are just basic ideas.

We generally tell all our customers to think of commenting on other relevent blogs as a way of showing another blog’s audience how much they know/ how interesting they are. So this new audience will click on the link back to their blog. This is another method of driving traffic to your site and entices people to write really well thought out comments, instead of junk to get ranked higher on search engines…

I have to say that You really convinced me to try out disqus. I haven't try yet, but I think I'll give it a chance soon. Thanks for this article.

I can see that this particular blog post has rather become cluttered (in terms of the contents section), which is something of a shame.

The article itself makes some good points - some of which we have discussed with our clients; some that we hadn't previously thought of.

Needless to say that we've bookmarked this page though!

Of course, one thing you will always look while blog commenting is that the comment is related to the article at hand. You do not want to raise red flags for spamming another article just to improve the optimization of your Internet search engine. You have to actual practice. If the comment is not related to the topic, you will not only get flagged but you will also confuse those who may have a propensity to visit your site. What spam does irritate visitors to view your site and make sure you become something of a pariah in the community of bloggers.

Blog comment is helpful specially when you comment to related blog as you not only link to it to add on you back links but also through it you can meet those that have interested with the same topic.

Sadly this win win situation is all too often abused by the small minded members of the community. With a huge plague in comment spam, where people think that leaving a comment of "I like your blog" merits a back link to a porn site, or some radical surgery on the male member. Comment can be a powerful tool if used correctly but sadly they are not.

Absolutely right :)

Thanks for the article. You have explained the benefits of comments so well. Few of the bloggers are thinking to close the comment in order to avoid spam, i refer them to follow you. Instead of closing the comment section then can try disqus or something like that.

Disqus seems to be integrated in many major news organization blogs and article pages. As a commenter I do not like how sometimes there is no option to switch the url/name combination. This may only be a negative to a few seos who do linkbuilding under multiple client names/url pairs, but if you have a tech blog/seo blog the situation may come up more.

That's exactly what I thought! Network Marketing often uses potential income to lure people in...it's a marketing strategy just like all the good stuff about a Burger on a TV ad...but never the bad stuff. You should do you due diligence to research and read carefully before you jump at anything...ESPECIALLY BUSINESS! More than anything else, u should be thankful that it doesn't cost anywhere near as much to start a Network Marketing Business as it does a traditional business. Learn that any business is business...SERIOUS BUSINESS!That's exactly what I thought!
