What is Disqus?
First, we must able to know what exactly we are onto. Disqus is a commenting platform that gives you great comment system to build engagement with your visitors. If you are using built-in comment system on your blog(say blogger or wordpress its good however, you can try this Disqus too).

 Disqus is easy to configure and it adopts the color and size of the post pages. It has also good feature and spam alert system. With these features, i dont doubt if it use for more than millions users in the world from different niche topics. 

Now, are you going to implement Disqus comment in your website?

Disqus Promoted Discovery
In their blog post last August 2012, i am the only one who was late for this news? Disqus added a concept of Discovery. A feature that will connect better with audiences(visitors and readers) to build engaging community between the authors of the site.

The Discovery Box was made to help users discover interesting and great stories in a site. Not only for discovering great  conversations, it allows also to drive more high quality traffic. (it displays inbound links to your pages thus potential to get more traffic more likely same as Related Post widgets)

Now the newest form of Discovery - the Promoted Discovery. Discovery does not gives traffic and engagement, it also make money out of it. Disqus gives the opportunity for the publishers to make money through Disqus Promoted Discovery. The recommending contents can give potential to earn money to the publishers. The readers may find the recommending content interesting on their part and that's the process  the owner will earn the money.

How to earn money via Disqus Discovery?
  • As i mentioned awhile ago, it can generate money with the Discovery Box. Promoted Discovery potentially earn revenue for publishers because it points the visitors to the recommending content (that an advertisers pay to the Disqus to post a promoted Discovery.)
