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.

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