I am a strong believer in the idea that no website would be successful without input from its visitors. After all, those are the website’s audience, and as such, have the biggest opinion on the sort of things that are posted because otherwise. Otherwise, why would they visit? If you’re running a blog or any website which invites users to comment, one app to definitely check out is Disqus.

A comments platform specifically designed for websites looking to unite their users’ comments, Disqus can be a great addition to any website. In this how-to, I’ll be showing you how to get Disqus up and running on your website so you can begin uniting your users through comments.

Looking through your site’s analytics can be insightful and unsettling at the same time. You can see how many people read your latest articles, but then wonder why they didn’t share the link or join in the conversation. Disqus has tried to take on this problem by making comments more social, and building in a new ranks system to let your loyal readers show that they’re staying involved.

We’re going to take a look at some of the newest features in Disqus, and how you can use them to enhance your site’s community. Then, we’ve got 2 Disqus Pro accounts to giveaway to our readers: a 1 year subscription, and a 6 month subscription.
