When it comes to blog commenting, there is always a debate as to which commenting system is the best and which one should you use.
Well, the grass is always greener on the other side and I see that true in blogging arena too.
People who have default WordPress commenting system, they wonder if they should switch to CommentLuv or should they choose DISQUS?
People who have one of these commenting systems, they seem to wonder if the other one is better.
We had a wonderful guest blog post by none other than Adrienne Smith just a few days ago about CommentLuv, it’s components and some incredible features of the tool and.
Adrienne did a phenomenal job of showing us why CommentLuv is so powerful tool for blog commenting and how it is designed to fight spammers and increase engagement on your blog. She’s a great testimonial of CommentLuv as she has a buzzing online community through blog commenting while she never gets spam comments.
Isn’t it what most bloggers are looking for?
If you haven’t seen her post yet, I highly encourage you to visit that post and get to know the power of CommentLuv Premium and how you can benefit if you use the system properly.
What About DISQUS?
I have seen a number of bloggers writing posts to compare CommentLuv with DISQUS and some of them justifying why DISQUS is better than CommentLuv.
Well, as far as DISQUS is concerned, I used to have DISQUS commenting system on this very blog and eventually I ended up switching to CommentLuv Premium and I couldn’t be any happier since.
Some people say that the reason they prefer DISQUS is because they get spam when they are with CommentLuv while DISQUS gets SPAM to zero.
That theory could not be any more wrong!
You get spammed whether or not you use CommentLuv. As long as spammers can access your wp-comments-post.php file, you will have spambots doing their job. Whether or not you approve it, that is always your choice. But you will have spam. I know I used to have SPAM all the time when I was on DISQUS.
What About Broken Links?
Some of my blogger friends have objections about broken links because of CommentLuv links.
I agree that commentators could delete that post on their blog after commenting on our sites. It will result in broken links on your site. However, Andy has a plug-in to take care of that issue which many of us use already.
If you use DISQUS, you will not have that issue for sure but then, no commentator gets a back link from a blog that uses DISQUS.
Isn’t it unfair?
I mean, I take my time and energy to share something of value in form of my comment to somebody else’s website who may or may not even respond to my comment. On top of that, I don’t even get a back link. Why would an average commentator waste their time commenting on somebody else’s blog for absolutely no value?
Yes, there are a handful of bloggers who will respond and be open to building relationships. But, for an average new commentator, is that hope worth their time and energy?
I doubt that.

Please feel free to share your thoughts about blog commenting and/or CommentLuv and add value to this post. Thank you kindly!
I want to first personally congratulate Jennifer, Deborah and Mi Muba for winning this awesome license for CommentLuv Premium. I know they’re really going to enjoy this awesome addition to their blog.
I’ve never used any other system but WordPress for commenting so I haven’t tried the other ones out to test what they can and can’t do. But the reason for that is I like the set up I currently have and as you mentioned, I don’t get the normal spam that everyone complains about. We’re all going to get the occasional person who is trying to sneak their way through to get a link but as many comments as I get, I really don’t get that many. Seriously, maybe five tops a week if that.
I think as bloggers we have to do what’s best for us but I’m sticking with CommentLuv Premium and I hope that those who have been sitting on the fence and didn’t win the license will grab this great deal you have for them.
Thanks for having me and enjoy everyone.
You are right Adrienne! We all have a choice and we have the right to exercise that choice as well.
However, my argument is, choosing one thing over other isn’t the issue. The issue is, sometimes, we try to justify our liking on logical ground for other people.
For example, when somebody says that their spam stopped because they started using this or that commenting system, it tells me that they know not what they talk about.
Things of that nature is what I feel is unfair when people talk without paying much attention to the details.
I am very excited about our winners and Andy will get them their license just in a few days. I have already sent the details to him. 🙂
Congratulations Jennifer, Deborah and Mi Muba! I know you are going to enjoy CommentLuv Premium!
I’ve been using it and it does cut the spam out! But not only that, if you are on a blog you can choose which post you want to link to that correlates to the blog you are reading. I’m so happy for you guys!
Thanks Adrienne and Kumar for doing this contest!
Thank you Donna for stopping by and taking time to congratulate Jennifee, Deborah and Mi Muba!
I am sure they would love the tool and more than that, they will reap the real benefit of the premium version by sending spammers away!
First of all thank God and then thanks a lot to you for offering an opportunity to be blessed by the wonderful views of networking specialist Adrienne Smith on CommentLuv plug-in in a previous post and also your conducting a lucky draw to give it to three winners for free.
I am lucky enough to be one of three and am so happy as I was seriously thinking to buy the one but deferred my plan after reading the lucky-draw post just hoping maybe I get the one.
Also thanks to all my friends who congratulated the winners here.
Have a great weekend.
I feel so jealous of you 🙂 I hardly have own anything a lucky draw and here you are, entered your name once and walked out winner!
Congratulations to the winners and I am sure they are going to love this plugin 🙂
Yes, Mi Muba would love it and so would Jennifer as I visit their blogs so often and I know it’s going to add more value to their blogs and fetch them more readers. I agree about it being a great plugin for new bloggers, especially when they are wanting more people to visit and comment on their blog, having used it on my blog past 2 years – it’s worked well for me, though lately I switched, as we had a long discussion in your earlier post about it (so I won’t go into those details again!)
Yes, Discus is good for those who are alright with it and there are many who are loving it, and so are the other systems. Yes, each system has it’s plus and minus points and we all accept that. I think at the end of the day it all comes down to using what you would like on your blog, which suits your audience, isn’t it? What might work for one may or may not work for another, or certain bloggers might want to move on and try something better, so each to ones own, whatever brings them contentment and happiness 🙂
Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week, whatever is left of it 🙂
You are right. We have our choices and we have right to exercise 🙂
The trouble is, with more power comes more responsibility. That means, the more following I have, the more responsibility I have to be accurate and truthful in my suggestions. At least this is what I believe in and I am sure you think the se way.
Now, there are people who can’t setup spam control properly or their whole setup is done in a way that it attracts more spammers. However, they blame that on CommentLuv and don’t realize that they are sending wrong message and hurting their own credibility.
I believe that we must know what we are doing and if we are doing it right before blaming someone or something or asking others to believe in our recommendations, right?
When I see people not following these simple things, it puts me off.
Rest is all good and I know all systems have pluses and minuses and depending upon our own needs and likings, we can always go for what works the best for us.
Thank you for dropping by. I know you have already discussed your opinion and stand on this matter. So, I respect your decision and I really don’t need you to tell me all over again 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Hello Mr. Kumar
Congratulations to Jennifer, Deborah and Mi Muba. I am glad for them.
Thank you for letting us know. I still use the free version, so do you think I need to purchase the premium?
Have a great weekend
Premium is definitely better than free. But you are okay without it for the moment because you don’t want to deal with setting complex rules at the moment.
You are hosted with Krishna World Wide and when I see the need, I will tell you 🙂
Not now! Right now, let’s focus on building your community and traffic!
Nice giveaway! Congrats Jenny, Debby, and sir Mi Muba! Thanks Adrienne for that fabulous insight into CommentLuv Premium and a big thanks to Kumar for initiating this giveaway. Kudos guys! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by to congratulations brother! You are so awesome!
Well, you didn’t win the contest this time but you did get a lot of insights into the plugin, didn’t you? 🙂
Thanks to Adrienne for that awesome post!
It was my pleasure to share this post with Kumar’s audience since it’s so fabulous and I was so excited about this giveaway.
I’m so excited to be a winner in this contest!
I am 55 years old and haven’t won a contest of any sort since grade school.
Thank you Kumar and Adrienne for the inspiration. I was planning on purchasing the premium comment luv plugin after reading Adrienne’s article and then though the contest would be FUN. And it was! I’ve had a blog for business for many years and have explored numerous comment plugins, and couldn’t decide so waited. I guess it was divine intervention that I read Adrienne’s post when I did, and also got introduced to this great blog!
Thank you again!
And…..a BIG Congratulations to Jennifer and Mi Muba too!
Isn’t this just fun?!
Love that when business and friendship also makes people smile.
I’m SO excited for you Deborah and now you’re going to have the best plugin available online my friend to attract more commenters. I’m really thrilled for you.
Woohoo! I’m super excited to see my name as a winner! Yay!
I’ve been thinking about getting CommentLuv for the longest time! So, this really comes just in time. I’m super happy. I really want to start building a community on my website and feel that this plugin will help move me towards that direction.
Thank you so much Adrienne and Kumar for not only the information you provided, but also for holding this contest. Congrats also to Deborah and Mi Muba!!
I’m really excited to get started with CommentLuv!
I’m thrilled for you Jennifer and know you’re going to love this plugin as much as we do. So happy to share how great it is with Kumar’s audience so congratulations.
First of all congratulation to all three member.
You are right sir, I like a line in which you said that,
When even people visit any person site He has only two purpose. one is get backlinks from comment and other is participate with other people and learn some thing new.
So I recommended Commenting Luv Plugin.
Any way great and informative post.
I’m very thrilled actually for those that won. Even though I didn’t win it’s fine. I’m still going to purchase CLPremium.
Regardless of this comment or not, I’m a fan of your site, Kumar. You have some great posts here and I certainly will be back on a consistent basis to read them.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Here you are with the winners.:)
I would like to congrats them for winning the licence.
There is no doubt that Muba is an amazing commentator. Though I was not aware about other two bloggers but still I would like to congrats them too.:)
It’s the matter of choice about the selection of any commenting system. I prefer CommentLuv. It drives traffic to the blog. Many bloggers claim that their blog get broken links due to CommentLuv. They can check the broken links once in a week. It’s not a big deal to do. They can check and remove if find any.
Disqus is also good but it irritates in loading. It takes more time in loading.
Great to hear about winners.:)
Enjoy this week ahead.:)
Hi Kumar, congratulations to the winners here of the CommentLuv Premium. I’ve been using it for years and LOVE it! Andy is awesome if any of them have any issues along the way. I stilll think it’s the best Comment System out there after doing my review of Disques and seeing how readers responded, etc. Several had not set up the CommentLuv right and were getting spam. Andy left a lengthy comment about that and how it should be set up correctly.
I’m sure these bloggers will love the new system on their blogs.
Congrats to Jennifer, Deborah and Mi! Enjoy!
Wow, I’m late to the party! LOL Hey, Adrienne and Kumar!
Congratulations to the winners, and especially my friend, Mi Muba! Yeah! It’s exciting to win stuff, and I want to offer a sweepstakes of some kind coming up, not sure what it will be yet, but it will be fun, and free! 🙂
It’s especially nice to win something that you’ll use for your business, and CommentLuv Premium is a very nice prize.
Hope y’all have an awesome weekend.
– Carol 🙂
