Alternate comment form systems for Blogger

My last post was about adding comment form below Blogger posts . These comment form are seo friendly , but doesn’t have other options like comment backup ,Gravtar support etc .There are alternate services offering well featured comment form systems for Blogger .



1. DISQUS :

Alternate comment form systems for Blogger

DISQUS is an alternate comment and discussion system for WordPress , Blogger ,Typepad and other related services .Look at the following screenshot .It looks really professional than default Blogger comment system.

Join DISQUS here . After registration they will ask you to upload your Blogger template. upload and then download the DISQUSed Blogger template . After installation , your comments would appear as shown above .You can manage and moderate,backup your comments in DISQUS control panel .DISQUS also supports a universal avatar that can be set from control panel .

Intensedebate :

Intensedebate is another alternate Blogger  comment system similar to  DISQUS , but better than them in features . Intensedebate is an Automattic(Those guys behind WordPress) joint venture . So this comment system includes many WordPress features like Gravatar and Akismet spam protection . Intensedebate installation is almost similar to DISQUS. upload the template and then download the widgetized version .

Join Intensedebate here .You can enable Akismet and Gravatar from Intensedebate control panel . They also support export ,import and backup of Blogger comments . Comment moderation is possible and you can even replay to comments by email .

Other features of Intensedebate comment system .

Comment Threading : Replay to individual comments.
Comment blacklisting : You can automatically delete comments containing certain phrases(you can set them) .
Comments can be integrated to Twitter.
Reputation and point system like that in Digg , Mixx etc .

Though these alternate comment form systems in Blogger looks professional and maintains a lot of features, they really sucks when it comes to SEO .Comments ,they really have an SEO potential in them .Since these comment systems uses JavaScripts , you may loose the value for them in search engines. Also its not possible to restore the comments to Blogger , if they are uninstalled .
