    Most of my site installed Disqus comment system, I just wondering where they hide that footer from php code, i'm trying to locate those for academic research purpose only but no success yet.

    Yeah, I was also wondering how they weren't penalized since they hide content from users and show it only to search engines. Google considers this against their guidelines, but not when it comes to big fishes lol

    Quite similar to statcounter. There are always conditions applied.They proved you free comment system and in return take some of your link juice.

    They are still doing this. It's exhausting how the big players get away with such things.

    Fairly common with large services, just take a look at the godaddy websites with the natural outbound anchors of "web design" pointing to godaddy.

    Do you guys really think Google plays fair? LOL, this is no surprise.

    Small companies always will get the short end of the stick. If you have money they turn a blind eye.

    Wait a second, so by installing Disqus, it takes away a bit of link juice on your website but Diqus itself is No Follow?

    But can't this be countered by simply making your website Nofollow?
