    Can Disqus still be used to gain authority in a niche? I looked in the profile and my Moz bar would not tell me if it is Do or No Follow. It wouldn't highlight it either way.

    Most of the comments in my niche are handled by the Wordpress system. The only other notable blog in my niche uses Disqus.

    Anyway, how can I leverage Disqus to get authority or a backlink or whatever.

    What can I do with Disqus?

    Google can most definitely see the Disqus comments and links within them. They are nofollow however.

    But you can still use them to diversify your anchor text and improve branding of your website. I wouldn't use any keyword rich anchor texts.

    I was thinking of using Disqus as a way to build authority in my niche. I need to get active in this community and I am not sure what tool is best to do that.

    I'm pretty sure that Disqus profile links are do****ow. Comment links are nofollow.

    If you are using chrome as a browser there is an add on. Think it is something like "no follow simple" and it places a red box round no follow links. Not sure what part of disqus you mean as I am not familiar with the website or I could tell you.

    disquss comment is really a good plugin. It can boost the look and authority of your site on your visitors eye. But I think it is a no follow link. Tho I'm not quite sure about this.

    Seems most discussions on wordpress or any forum are indexed so they are worth it.
