As you can see, I am a big fan of Google comments, but with any new technology, we need to make sure we understand the implications of what we are getting ourselves into with adopting a new technology.Here are some implications that come to mind when I think about the adoption of Google Comments.
When we implemented this on version 4 of the Search Engine Roundtable, I made sure to leverage the Disqus API. (1) I wanted to own all the comments and have them as a backup in my own database.(2) I wanted to make them search engine friendly(3) But I also love the user interface and ease of commenting via Disqus, so I took that(4) I also wanted Disqus to deal with the comment spam and server load issues caused by that.
I checked out my post from last year about Google Analytics for Lead Generation and noticed that the article that once had 0 comments suddenly came to life with 44 comments pulled in from Google !
The comments on the post were both aesthetically pleasing and also a great way to view all of the activity that had happened around that post.
Where I was once concerned that the post didn't receive a lot of attention, I can now see that many people found it to be useful.
Naturally, blogs that weren't powered by Blogger wanted to show these comments on their websites as well, so the industrious individuals at Cloud Hero worked to make that dream a reality by releasing a Google Comments Word Press Plugin.
Now just about any website can use Google comments on their site using this plugin.
*Note, this plugin is not officially sanctioned by Google, so install at your own risk.
Now that Google comments are available, you should assume that every single item you publicly share on Google will ultimately become a comment on that website at some point in time.
While that should not be a concern in most cases, you will need to make sure you understand your privacy settings before sharing.
It isn't "easy" to code this all out, but I feel the approved comments add a lot to the articles I post here and thus want them indexed by the search engines. Note: This story was written earlier this week and scheduled to be published today.
On April 18, 2013, Google announced that Google Comments were being enabled into their Blogger platform.
The best part is that the plugin now supports the ability to maintain your current Word Press comment system in addition to Google comments.
