    How many different blog comment applications are out there? If you are a WordPress user, then you know you don’t need to add a plug-in or application to encourage comments on your blog. However, you can add comment management services like Disqus or CommentLuv. But what if Google+ had a blog comment system? Let me tell you why you should consider it: A blog comment system owned by Google would be SEO gold. Comments from Google’s blog comment system would be given preferential treatment in the search engines. WordPress has its own.

People who read that conversation feel attached to your business because they got interested in your story, and that story is being told in the dialog of the comment section.

    There are many reasons for the change back to the default, most notably that many long-time commentators had complained about various functions (or lack of functions and didn’t want to wait until future plugin versions included their wish lists). Marking comments as spam, for instance, required multiple clicks instead of one. The company’s customer service team is top notch and the Livefyre system does allow for robust interactions among people commenting — but while it may work well for some blogs, my presumption is now is not the best time to continue with it.
