The truth is, some friends who come to my blog and reading my blog posts frequently, wants to know the simple reason why I removed the Google plus commenting system on my blog. Hey! I only removed the G+ comment system because of one little problem, yes! Just one little problem and as I proceed, I’ll explain for your better understanding… 😀
Some weeks back, I talked about the G+ commenting system, how to integrate it and the benefits it holds. I even installed it on my blog as a tester to see how it goes because I don’t want to know what other bloggers think or has been saying about the plug-in, rather I want to test it myself and see how it goes. Truth be told, after trying it out, I did enjoyed every moment using that little but yet powerful comment box (system) because it did do things unimaginable 😉 .
If it does things I like then why did I removed it?
You know, before I tested it out I saw different bloggers from different blogs that gave their own opinions and most of these opinions are as follows;
–The comments made by your commentators will not be yours
–You will be giving Google more members
–Your precious comments will be lost when you remove the comment system on your blog.
While all this are true, I still did go ahead and use the comment box on this blog to see what i’ll personally find. After my weeks of testing, I did love it but every good thing must always have a downside right? The only drawback was the “lack of comment moderation”.
I am getting some good returns of traffic and if you are getting some good amount of traffic, bulk of spammers will surely visits you from time to time and if your comment system is not moderated, you will be bombarded with spam comments.
The main reason why I remove the Google comment system on my blog:
I was doing my regular weekly cleanup you know, repairing my databases, deleting broken links found on my blog. As I was cleaning the pages, I accidentally entered one of my earlier blog post and found out that my G+ comment system has been bombarded with spam comments by spammers . I decided to check some more blog post and then I realized that my blog is being spammerlize (brought the English up ). If you have a blog with more than 50 or 150 pages you will know that it is almost impossible moderating each of your blog post. Instead of wasting my precious time removing those spam comments, I removed the comment system to stop the spamming because if I don’t remove it, it’ll still happen over and over again.
I did not remove the comment system because it was not performing its task, I simply removed it because of the lack of comment moderation it possess.
I need something that I can be able to control (moderation wise). I don’t care if I bring more member to Google plus, I don’t care about who owns the comment, but if they can build a moderation system like the native WordPress comment box, I will definitely love the G+ commenting system even more because “to me” they have all the SEO benefits.
