2 Simple Ways to Make your DISQUS profile MUCH More Effective

DISQUS (pronounced discuss) is a global blog commenting system. It consolidates the comments you make on other blogs and the comments you get on your own blog into one easy to manage dashboard. It becomes very easy for commenters to chat with each other and you, and that’s a win for your blog.

This post, rather than being a review of DISQUS, will focus on making the most of your DISQUS profile once it’s setup.

Fill out your DISQUS profile.

Completing your DISQUS profile isn’t a time consuming exercise but it’s worth taking some extra time to fill out every field especially your name, avatar, and your bio.

PRO TIP: Your bio appears after your published comments and gives you a great chance to spark some interest in who you are and what you do.

Your bio will appear after your comment

PRO TIP: Populate your name, in addition to your username, so your image presentation in comment threads is a little more approachable.

Connect your DISQUS profile and merge your comments.

If you post a comment using your Facebook or Twitter (or Google, Yahoo! or OpenID) login, you can ensure they all get merged into your DISQUS blog comments dashboard. By connecting your DISQUS and social media profiles, you can also share your comment on social media as you hit submit.

Connect DISQUS with your social media profiles

If you’ve posted blog comments in the past and used the same email address as your DISQUS profile, you can merge those blog comments into your DISQUS dashboard with a few clicks. In fact, DISQUS will prompt you to merge your profiles.

Using DISQUS means you only have to manage single profile to view all your blog comments, making life just that little bit easier.

Do you use DISQUS comment system? Let me know if you’re a fan, or not, and whether you maximise your profile.

    If there is no option for guest posting for building of links, still people use their Disqus profile for the same purpose. Can you please tell how to do this?

  • http://nomadicpolitics.blogspot.com/ Nomad

    One thing I wanted to ask. I have checked the option for media attachments but there’s no way to limit the size (which is enormous) I find having a full size youtube video or a large sized pic pretty distracting for my readers.

  • http://digishock.ca/ Gabriele Mollica

    There was a lot of great information in this article. Disqus can be a bit of minefield if not used correctly. What would you suggest for the best method to find more disqus enabled websites to generate more traffic back to your own content?

    • http://www.copywritematters.com.au Belinda (The Copy Detective)

      I’m not sure Gabriele. That might be a question for Disqus!

  • http://web-tasks.com/home/about Local SEO Services

    While this post looks simple but one thing for sure it is really an effective factor for sure, another best methods to get very high quality backlinks is by asking for links from other related sites’ webmasters. This is a rather “old-school” tactic but is still effective.

    Merge linkedin and DISQUS!

  • Michael

    But if I have a few sites, how can I add links of all of them in the profile using disqus? Or do you have any suggestion?

  • http://www.smoothsailingmusic.com/ | Smooth Sailing |

    Huge huge fan of it. I can see Disqus taking off in a very real way because it can potentially give people a quite expansive idea as to who you are which as a musician in the digital age is an EXTREMELY important part of establishing a fan base.

  • http://www.anekdotakias.com anekdotakias

    is any way the images to show up whe you share them in other social media like facebook?

  • rothbriele

    Huge large fan of it. I can see Disqus getting off in a very actual way because it can possibly give individuals a quite extensive concept as to who you are which as a artist in the electronic age is an EXTREMELY essential aspect of developing a fan platform.

    I have been looking for ways to make my profile more attractive. I added an Avatar and filled out my personal information section with things that aren’t necessarily true but are good for a laugh. What more can I do to make my profile more complete.


    • http://www.copywritematters.com.au/subscribe-copy-detective/ Belinda Weaver

      Things that are good for a laugh will help your profile stand out Sampson. I say go for it!

  • http://soarlikeaturkey.com Tony McGurk

    I really like Disqus especially that I don’t have to wait for page reloads when I have a heap of comments to reply to on my site which can be quite time consuming. I also love that once I’m logged in I stay logged in for any Disqus site I may visit. Disqus just makes things a lot easier all round

  • Kristina Smith

    Well, these was really some good post regarding improving a disqus profile but I would say that there’s writing skills are very important and you must provide some writing tips so that one can improve writing skills.
