Web 2.0 Marketing Tip #47: Disqus and Tumblr for the Win

By Ralf Skirr.

Search engines love blogs, and a lot of people love to create and read others’ blogs. However, one thing that turns off people is the fact that a lot of blogs request them to sign up just to allow them to comment. Sure, this move will guarantee that your blog is secured. However, for a regular blog reader, this will be taken as a waste of time.

Do you have a Tumblr account? Tumblr is a very popular publishing platform today and is also a good marketing platform you can use. If you have thought or are already using it for marketing, then you have to know how useful comments are as well as how beneficial using third-party commenting systems like Disqus can be.

Tumblr and Disqus

Tumblr is a favorite blogging platform today as it is easy to customize, user-friendly, and allows for sharing just about any type of media. If you are a Tumblr user and are thinking of a great way to encourage your blog followers to comment and repost your posts, then you should consider using Disqus.

How does Disqus work with Tumblr?

Simple. Instead of requiring a Tumblr account for someone to comment, you can just configure your account to use Disqus’s commenting system. With Disqus on, your blog followers  can login and comment using accounts for which they already have profiles.

For instance, if your visitors already have Facebook or Twitter accounts, they can login using their account username and passwords for those sites instead of creating a Tumblr account (if they don’t have one yet). They can then post comments that are linked with their social network identities. The great thing about this is that if they don’t want to be identified, they can opt to post comments as guests.

    This is pretty good, so even if my reader doesn't have a tumblr account they can still comment on my post if I have configured the disqus on my tumblr. Sounds interesting isn't it?
