It's not just the back links, it's the reputation. You should become a member of relevant website communities. You should be helpful and friendly. You should recommend your website when it is appropriate. Don't hide your affiliation. Use your real name, or at least a consistent nickname across different sites. Limit your membership to ONLY relevant sites. ...

This is because what you had read is not fully true, as Google says: Google tries to associate framed content with the page containing the frames, but we don't guarantee that we will. Or it was before 2011, when Matt Cutts from Google said: Googlebot keeps getting smarter. Now has the ability to execute AJAX/JS to index some dynamic comments ...

Get a backlink through blog commenting is not bad. But you should be putting a backlink on the related blogs only. For eg if you have a travel site and you are commenting on a tech blog and getting a backlink from there, then it is a serious issue. As per the recent Penguin and Panda update, if any site is giving link to any other site which is no where ...

There is no SEO-specific reason to disable comments based on your statement above. However, if you ever pass control of the site over to someone else and they install a standard theme, all of those "left-on" pages and posts will revert to being open to comments and you certainly wouldn't want that to happen. Best practice is to disable comments for all new ...

I would think the simplest option would be to contact barber/salon owners and inform them that your site exists, that their business is listed, and that as an owner, they have the opportunity to have their satisfied customers post a positive comment on your site to increase their customer base. Bare in mind that you will need to make this really simple for ...

Using remote servers to store your comments is absolutely fine and in fact they are safer as they add a extra layer of security, they keep the SQL database smaller, easier to administrator and many more reasons why so many are using remote comments. 1) Disqus Disqus is my top favorite as its easy to administrate and edit the styling and just does what its ...

Regarding Comment Sections: Search terms used: comments section seo There are several considerations that need to be made before comment sections and ratings are to be implemented. General: Time it takes to moderate the comments Moderation must happen quickly or comments section will suffer Whether the comments reside on the site itself Whether ...

Ernesto there is no link type of dofollow, and nofollow is not really a w3 standard. Search engines have agreed to recognize it as a link not to count towards your search positions. It doesn't mean they won't crawl and index it though. If you want to increase your page rank any good quality standard href link on a relevant page linking to your page will ...

Disqus has its own Privacy Policy that you can link to from your own Privacy Policy so that you can inform users that Disqus, a third-party you use, may collect personal data through the embeddable commenting plugin. Disqus discloses what kind of personal data it collects at the "Personally Identifiable Information" clause: And Disqus links to its Privacy ...

Googlebot and other spiders can process some JavaScript, though it is true that having the content you want indexed in the underlying HTML is always best. One way to verify whether Easycomment's content is indexed is to look for other sites that have Easycomment installed, then do a site:example.com search for those sites. You can even test on your own site ...

Jekyll, with a photo gallery plugin like https://github.com/ggreer/jekyll-gallery-generator Unfortunately, that one doesn't have pagination but you could get round that with subgalleries. Generate everything locally, then just upload the HTML and images to something like S3 or Cachefly.

I would suggest a system like Disqus. You can see a list of features here, it seems to meet most of your criteria.

Livefyre is a commenting system like disqus that doesn't load GA.

You should use Comment instead of UserComments. UserComments is for the action/event of commenting, while Comment represents the published comment itself. (You’ll often find that UserComments is used although it’s not appropriate; that is because Comment was introduced later.) Neither Schema.org nor Microdata define which conclusions can be drawn when a ...

"Comments" is such a common word used on web sites that your website isn't even going to register on scale of top websites that use it. As long as Googlebot can get to all the pages on your site by following links, your internal link structure is pretty much "good enough". The days of being able to tweak your internal links for better ranking are pretty ...

I took a course back in the day on web marketing however I am no pro in that area. My opinion is, I think social media is hard to compete with left or right and I'm betting that's what is happening to you. My best answer is to create an attraction to the comment section of your site, you have to get your name out there. As one person said, advertise, ...

These are pingbacks. If post 1 links to post 2, a comment (including a link to post 1 as well as a quote) on post 2 gets posted¹, notifying the post author and the readers about the backlink. You can verify it by looking at the HTML: each of these comments has the class pingback. ¹ This is likely happening automatically (many blog systems come with this ...

An active forum with good quality posts entice users to sign up for the forum. The initial phase of running a forum is tough as it technically lies empty. It creates a catch-22 situation where lack of users create a lack of content and vice versa. You need to hire friends, freelancers to start posting on your forums on a regular basis to get the ball ...

I think that you will lose all of your social activities if you change your domain or switch from HTTP to HTTPS. So, only point 3 above will not lose your activities count.

Value is already opinion-based term:) The value of comments you can benefit from is directly depending of the quality of your readers: Are readers nice people - they write meaningful comments, you don't have the pain to struggle with trolls -> overall profit. Once you have more pain/time loss on troll management, as benefit from meaningful comments - ...

Changing line 24 of /application/libraries/Engine/View/Helper/ViewMore.php: protected $_maxLineBreaks = 4; // Truncate early if more than this nl to 12; fixes the problem for now without removing the functionality entirely.

my experience (we can only base ourselves on our experience here) is as follows: if you add the Facebook comment box, people will comment. It doesn't matter if the site doesn't get much traffic. It is just that an interface that is already known and used, combined with the fact that users tend to be already logged in to social networks, encourages comments. ...

My experience is that unless people had a really great experience or a really bad experience with a product, they don't make comments. May it is because your site is new and does not generate much traffic. They may be using other established sites to put their comments instead. Instead of comments, you might try your own +1/-1 buttons. What triggers ...

Are we allowed to import these comments for display on our site? Technically speaking (and if I understand your issue well), those comments are not generated on your platform in the first place, so they cannot be covered by some kind of agreement between the user who created them and you. It is more like you are willing to import something your don't own ...

A good practice is to disable the comments in Settings -> Discussion page so that you don't have them to pop up when some other kind of changes are made to your WordPress website. SEO rankings will not be affected if you disable these comments. Search spiders will only look into the template part of the website and if it does not have any comments that is ...

To get Facebook comments working on your site you need to follow Facebook's instructions. They will give you a snippet of javascript code to put on your site where you want the comments to show up. Then users can comment on that page. By default their comments are shared on Facebook. Replies on facebook will also show up on your site.
