Today ended my experiment with Livefyre comment system on this blog. Somehow it was hyped, but it did not really boost comments on my blog. Now I think there are more disadvantages than advantages to this system and it’s time to change. 

I give DISQUS a try. I don’t know exactly if there are hidden configuration tricks in 2014, please give me a hint if there are any tipps. I’m unsure about quality of WP- Plugin. I hope it is SEO-friendly out of the box and synchronizes every comment back to my WordPress.

Here are some reasons why I don’t like Livefyre any more

  • I have a feeling of losing google rank since I’ve installed livefyre
  • Many users seemed not to be familiar with Livefyre
  • It hast not prevent any spammers, even worse it attracted it.
  • DISQUS Theme looks better here.

Also, Google Trends shows that DISQUS is still the Favorite system.

You are welcome to test DISQUS by commenting this post.

Update, Dez 2015: Not using WordPress anymore. But still with DISQUS.
