How To Add Disqus On Blogger?
Step 1: First of all go to the Disqus signup page. You can sign up through your social media profile (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus). There is another option to signup using an email address. I recommend signup using email. So fill up the boxes with username, email, and password. Now click on the signup button. In the next step, Disqus will ask to choose the type of your account. Click on “I want to install Disqus on my site”.
Step 2: Here you will be asked to provide your website name and category. Website name will create your unique Disqus permalink as: “yourblogname.disqus.com”. You can also customize your URL by clicking on the “Customize Your URL” link. Choose a category for your Disqus account and click on the “Create Site” button.
Step 3: Now Disqus will ask about your website’s platform. Most popular blogging platforms will be shown to you. You have to choose (Click on) “Blogger” platform as shown below.
Step 4: Here you will see three options. We will go with the first option to add Disqus with blogger. So click on the first option as shown below:
You will be redirected to the blogger widget page. From here you can select your blog from the drop-down (if you have more than one blog in your blogger account) to add Disqus. After selecting your blogger blog, Click on the “Add Widget” button.
Step 5: I think you are redirected to your blogger “Layout” section and you are watching the Disqus widget is added here. Everything is fine. You should see the Disqus comment platform right below your blog post. Disqus will ask you to verify your email address, so do it.
Note: You have successfully added the Disqus comment platform to your blogger blog. But your existing comments are disappeared. To bring them back, you have to import your existing comment into Disqus.
Import Existing Blogger Comment Into Disqus:
