1. Jetpack By WordPress

Jetpack is practically considered the default comments system these days. The multi-functional plugin created by Automattic does far more than improve the commenting aspects of your website, though that is a major feature of the plugin.

Jetpack allows your readers to connect to your website and leave a comment in multiple ways. Whether that is by using the default WordPress comments, connecting to WordPress.com, or by logging into Facebook, Google+ or Twitter.

Not only does it allow for a more social connection, you are also given the ability to use threaded comments for more organized commenter discussions, as well as having the functionality to notify people whenever a new comment is added to the thread. Because this comment system is part of Jetpack it is constantly being expanded and improved by the Automattic team.

Jetpack is one of the most popular plugins installed on WordPress sites because of the additional features it has. With Automattic continually improving Jetpack it is worth installing on your website, even if you decide to use another plugin to maintain your comments.

2. Disqus Comment System

Disqus

Disqus is one on the most widely used comment systems in the blogosphere. It isn’t tied exclusively to WordPress and so one user account can be used for blogs on any system that has Disqus installed. This means that rather than control the comments within the WordPress installation and adding to your database, Disqus uses its own servers to manage the user login and comment management.

In what is fast becoming a standard feature list for plugins of this type, the Disqus plugin allows for threaded comments, notifications of new comments in the thread, subscription options for comments and inbuilt spam and malware filters.

Disqus is a community-focused plugin. Users carry a record of every comment they make on their account and can be followed by other Disqus users. This let’s them engage with them not just on your site, but on any site they leave a comment.

3.Disable Comments

disable

 

This plugin allows administrators to globally disable comments on any post type (posts, pages, attachments, etc.) so that these settings cannot be overridden for individual posts. It also removes all comment-related fields from edit and quick-edit screens. On multisite installations, it can be used to disable comments on the entire network.

Additionally, comment-related items can be removed from the Dashboard, Widgets, the Admin Menu and the Admin Bar.

Important note: Use this plugin if you don’t want comments at all on your site (or on certain post types). Don’t use it if you want to selectively disable comments on individual posts – WordPress lets you do that anyway. If you don’t know how to disable comments on individual posts, there are instructions in the FAQ.

If you come across any bugs or have suggestions, please use the plugin support forum. I can’t fix it if I don’t know it’s broken! Please check the FAQ for common issues.

4.SEO Facebook Comment

SEO Facebook Comment

 

SEO Facebook Comments embeds a Facebook Comment Form on your blog and also looks at each of your blog posts searching for Facebook Comments already posted. All new found comments will be added to WordPress Database.

Remember: You don’t need to use any other Facebook Comment plugin with this one, SEO Facebook Comments will do all that is needed for you.

Why this is so Good

Among many advantages, you will have all your WordPress Comments widgets and plugins still working since all the comments will also be at your database.

Also, even if Facebook goes down or slow it won’ affect the loading of your site content.

And what is the SEO benefit?

Normally the Facebook comment system is embed into your page through an iframe. Because of that Google can’t read those comments or associate then with your page.

This plugin changes all that by adding and loading all the comments on your page through your WordPress Database like the rest of your site.

It will not hurt my server performance?

What makes this plugin shine is that it is very low server resources intensive. It will search for Facebook Comments specific to blog posts only when those posts are loaded. This will save your server from any stress situation or overload.

Incredible Easy to Install

All you need to do is enable the plugin, set its configuration with facebook (app id, secret and admin id) and it will already start adding all the facebook comments to your WordPress while the users visit your blog posts pages 🙂
