  1. Good to see that We can also build links from Disqus enabled blogs. But I had a question, Do Google really index comment links from Disqus enabled blogs?
    Ahrefs Indexes these links But what about Google?

  2. Hi Anirudh,

    Firstly thanks for your visit to my blog today. Please note my reply as I have asked you something very important and have a surprise for you if you reply.

    Your post here about Discus is interesting and yes the links are rel=nofollow as was mentioned by another commentator whom I doubt is the same Matt Cutts of Google fame.

    However, whether you use Discus or CommentLuv or any other blog commenting system, the key issue is to provide the most valuable relevant comment you can to someone’s post. In doing so you are building your reputation and credibility. Blog commenting purely for traffic purposes is not the way to go.

    I use CommentLuv rather than Discus simply because it makes it easy for people to discover my latest post.

    Thanks for the review Anirudh and hang in there my friend. You may be a newbie but you’re making a great start with your bloging journey.

    Best wishes from the remote Thai village blogger


    1. Thanks Peter. I never expected that you’ll look into my blog. after getting comments from great people like you and Matt Cutts I’m feeling more encouraged. Thanks once Again. Your support means a lot to me.

  3. This is such a comprehensive post on how to comment on blogs for newbies. I am going to share this with my Merry band of picture book authors. This is not, by a long shot, my first time commenting on a blog, but it is my first time commenting on yours. ???? Thank you for such great information!!

  4. Hey guys, anyone seen any boost in rankings from these disqus backlinks?

    PS. Oh, and thanks for the article by the way, not much info to be found on the web about this stuff lately.

  5. Hey Anirudh

    Thanks for taking the time to write this post.

    Unfortunately, I do disagree with the methodology. There are a couple of issues at hand here. Firstly, the fact that the linkk is nofollow on a comment reduces the value of the backlink significantly. Yes it may be a backlink from a authoratitive website, but the link is already devalued by being a comment link and not a link in the main body of the site. On top of that, it is a rel=nofollow link making the link hold as much weight as that of a directory imho.

    This is couple with the fact that you are commenting solely for the backlink. I know you mentioned about being careful of spamming, but if you intention for commenting is to get a backlink, then you are not going to be adding to the discussion in a positive way – which means you will build a perception of yourself as a spammer.

    Honestly, in my opinion, you should dedicate your time trying to build one powerful backlink rather than many comment links.

    Keep up to great work on your blog!

      1. No improvement needed, without people theorising and testing we wouldn’t be able to push the industry forward. It’s a great spot, and maybe it is worth running a test on a site that you are happy to risk possible repercussions on.

        1. You need to find whether the blog/website is allowing a backlink or not . Read the blog post carefully you’ll find your solution here :”Trick to Find Backlink opportunity in Disqus “

  6. Hello Anirudh,
    You explain very nice about how to get backlinks using disqus forum. I don”t know how to take backlink but after read your article i understood all of think. Thanks for explanation.

  7. Since disqus comments are now being indexed… I would think they do hold value in the comment links. I personally think no-follow links do help sites rank organically. I know they don’t pass page rank (green bar juice), but they do count as links.

  8. Still i never understand how to get backlink from disqus. because when i comment on any blog my disqus profile url link with my name. i just want to know how to link my website with my disqus username

  9. I’m planning this to implement on my site. However, The moderation seems to be focused. I will get rid spam comments manually

  10. Thanks for this, I’ve been following web design / developer blogs for years and now they are all using Disqus I felt I wouldn’t get any backlinks which was a bummer. I write genuine comments and interact the best I can, so I was concerned about it all. Cheers!

  11. Thank you for your nice post about Disqus comments. I was quite desperate that many blogs do use Disqus. Me personally would not do so.
    I still could not understand what to do, if Disqus sees my comment(s) as spam? What actions do I need to take?

  12. Hi Anirudh,
    You have provided a great information in the best way possible.
    The screenshots were very helpful and you were direct to the point.
    I would like to thank you for the information and concept clarification you have given.
    Thanks & Regards,

      1. I will for sure.
        I will look forward for a post from your side regarding nofollow issue with disqus comments (as someone in the comment section mentioned it in context to the article). I would again say thank you because this article has literally everything the title says.
        Thanking you,

  13. Your ranking nicely. Just searched for this topic and you were on the top spots.
    I like your case study and the 50/50 chance seems realistic.
    It’s not a ton of work to find spots and write comments that actually make sense. Just beware that the niche – in our case SEO and link building – fits your website.

  14. Thanks for this tutorial ANIRUDH,
    I have discus account and configuring properly.
    I just want to know, If i comment on discuss enabled blog without dropping any link, Does it get me any back link from my discuss profile ?

    Thank you !

    1. Hi, Rakhi
      Thanks for asking this question, And Thanks to anirudh for reply. Actually I also don’t had that knowledge. My Discuss profile also configured properly as you describe through the article. Thanks for this informative post. i really learn new thing from you.

  15. Very informative guide, thank you. Disqus is quite different to plain old blog commenting, so i think you have to be careful, as you say comments are moderated by the company overall, not just the individual blog you comment on. So from what i gather from your profile, the ability to gain a link depends on how the webmaster has set up their comments? So, it’s only worth the effort if you check the source code before commenting, otherwise you’re not going to get any credit?

  16. Question. How often are you guys commenting on relevant blogs and what not? What would be considered too much? I know that sometimes if you leave over a certain threshold it’ll get marked as spam. Thanks for the article though, i’ve been looking for a way to get some type of back with disqus.

  17. This is great information for me, i dont know if it works, let me try, ahrefs index most of the backlinks that even not indexed by google. So i dont know if it really works. If it works it is a very good deal for seo.

  18. Wow, just read the your blog post!
    I was searching how to get quality back-links from guest posting and stumbled upon this blog!
    I will use Disqus from now on, although it is necessary to mention that people shouldn’t use this method sorely for the purpose of getting back-links but should engage and interact to share information and knowledge.
