Arrow DISQUS Blog Comments - Valuable For Backlinks?

I've been posting on blogs that use a disqus verify tool to screen spam comments.

I have set up an account and have added my link in the profile section, but I am not entirely certain that this is of any real value for backlink juice - since it is buried off site and takes a bit of work to find if you are seeing just the comments on the blog.

Does anyone have an opinion on this? Is it still worth the effort making the comment and do you value the backlink as worthy in it's own right?



Be really interested to hear your opinions on this one, as disqus has a really good reputation to curb spam commenting.

I'd say they would be as good as comments in any other blog or forum. I wouldn't have thought it'll be any better.

Also depends on the PR of the website where the DISQUS comment is hosted.

It depends on the blog because most of them are in nofollow attribute. It still creates an infraction on my site though.

I thought disqus's selling point was that the links wouldn't be crawled so nobody would have a reason to spam. That may not be the case in practice though.

If you're doing blog commenting as a means to simply build links then it doesn't seem that disqus comments would be worth as much since the link doesn't appear on the page and since it's more difficult for another reader to find the link to your site if they want to learn more about you. However, if you're also using blog comments to build your reputation and you're using your real name an image to comment then perhaps there is still some recognizably and credibility being built.

I agree Jen, it seems that I have to use a really easy to identify avatar and username to start some sort of brand recognition in disqus - but once you start commenting and get a few likes its' good.

no link juice, but you can gain traffic using comments on disqus

Disqus doesn't provide link juice anymore. It used to until everyone started spamming it as an easy way to get links

The type of disqus link is no follow, so you can not get back links or it doesnot provide any link juice.

Like everyone said, it's NOFOLLOW, so no juice, but... depending on how much traffic the site gets, a single link in the comments could bring decent incoming traffic for you.

For example, I have a health food blog. So I went to other health food blogs, posted a comment, and left a link to my site mentioning people could read more by visiting the link. Got me several hundred visits of people in the same niche. Problem is that comments get buried over time, so incoming traffic from those links will die out eventually.
