Experienced Bloggers already know that blog commenting is one of the best methods of getting one way back links.
They also know that manual blog commenting is a very slow and sometimes tedious process.
That is why some of them try to game the system by investing in link building software with comments.
I prefer to add any comments on a blog post that I like myself.
Because I want the blog owner to know that I am a real person, so using comment automation software is just not an option for me.
In this article I will reveal to you the 4 blog commenting services/plugins that I use the most, and I explain the reason why I rate them so highly.
First started in 2007 by Daniel Ha and Jason Yan. Disqus has over 50 million users and is rated by many as one the best blog commenting service around.
I have had an account with Disqus for quite some time now, but it is only this year (2013) that I have really started to use them as part of my blog commenting strategy.
What I like the most about the Disqus blog commenting service is the ability to share mine, or any other person’s comments on the popular social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
I use this feature quite a lot because it helps to draw more people into the discussion.

2)Facebook Comments Plugin
I’m not exactly sure when the first Facebook wordpress comments plugin came into being. But I can tell you that the first official Facebook fully integrated plugin
was launched on… or around the 6/12/2012
Now some of you reading this post might already know that I am not exactly one of Facebook’s biggest fans.
But having said that, I do like their WordPress plugin for Facebook comments because I have found that it is the best method of interacting with other Facebook users.

3)Comment Luv Premium
Andy Bailey launched the original Comment Luv wordpress plugin way back in 2007
I’m trying my best not to sound too biased here, but it’s kinda hard for me not to do so… since I already have Comment Luv Premium installed on this site.
Comment Luv Premium comes with a fairly hefty price tag of $97 which might be a bit steep for the average newbie blogger.
But should you ever decide to purchase this plugin, I can honestly say that it will go down as one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.

First launched in April 18th 2013 for Blogger Blog owners, this plugin was quickly adapted for wordpress by Alex Moss
It most definitely is the new kid on the block but if their rapid growth and popularity continues the Google+ comments plugin could eventually turn out to be the best blog commenting service of them all.
I do not have it installed on this site at this moment in time. But that may change in the not too distant future.
I mainly connect with my G+ followers by using the excellent Shareaholic Google chrome extension to share any blog posts that I feel may be of interest to them.

5)WordPress Comments System
I could not finish this article without mentioning the native wordpress comments system which has been around since WordPress first opened for business way back in May 2003
Most bloggers prefer to use this option, while being almost totally unaware of all the other choices available.
But in all honesty I can’t blame them because the native WordPress commenting system is quick. It’s efficient and it actually works quite well.
However it would be stupid for you to ignore the other competing commenting systems like the 4 I’ve mentioned above. Because they have taken the basic functionality of WordPress to a whole new level.
So if you’re serious about your blog and you want to drive as much interaction as possible then my advice to you is to consider switching to a premium WordPress comments plugin.
