Today, we're excited to announce that we're making even greater strides in improving the Typepad blog commenting experience by partnering with Disqus, one of the biggest and best out there when it comes to commenting systems.
We here at Typepad have been working hard at combatting spam on your blogs. This has greatly improved commenting for you and your readers on the backend, so we're happy to use this partnership to improve the front end.
Disqus is the #1 "Distributed Content Platform" on comScore and the most expansive comment discussion network on the Internet, now reaching 1.4 billion unique visitors each month. You're not alone when you add Disqus comments to your blog! Check out how Disqus can even help drive more traffic - and maybe revenue - to your blog.
Integrating their service with your blog will make commenting even easier for your readers. They can even get notifications of new comments, helping your blog's conversations remain active and engaged. We have easy to follow steps that should make it a breeze to integrate Disqus into your Typepad blog. You can learn more about this in our Knowledge Base.
Please note that enabling Disqus is completely optional; Typepad commenting itself is not going anywhere.
We're rolling out the Disqus integration to our Beta team subscribers first, so if you want to integrate Disqus sooner than later, go to Account within Typepad and sign up! Everyone else will see it once we get feedback from our Beta team and start rolling it out.
