Can Disqus Comments Increase Traffic?

Can Disqus comments increase traffic to your blog? Many bloggers use blog commenting as a means of driving traffic to their site. Writers who publish on revenue sharing sites also leave comments on blogs that they frequent. Blogs use different commenting systems, such as Intense Debate, Live Fyre and Disqus.

Is it worth your time to comment on blogs that use Disqus? Will that help with building your brand online? If you read a post on a blog that uses Disqus, should you just read and go without adding to the discussion?

Some people are not as interested in leaving comments on blogs that use Disqus because they are often required to create an account and that takes time. However commenting on blogs that use Disqus benefits you in many ways:
1. You are updated when people reply to your comments. This means that you may choose to continue being a part of the conversation without exerting much effort.
2. You get traffic from Disqus referrals. When someone clicks on a link in a comment you made, they go back to your site.
3. You build relationships with other people who are interested in the same topics as you
4. Disqus comments on WordPress blogs are indexed by Google.

Having Disqus comments on WordPress blogs indexed means that when you are involved in a discussion on a particular topic, there is a good chance that someone who is looking for information will find your answer in the search engine results. Google crawls and recognizes these links, even when they are no follow. They are an important part of a link profile that looks natural.

Using Disqus Promoted Discovery is another way that blog owners can get more traffic to their websites. In the Discovery Box, visitors to a blog will usually see content that is related to whatever they are reading. This feature is just one of the benefits of using this commenting platform. As a publisher, you also earn when visitors click on a link in the discovery box that is paid for by a sponsor.
