    I'm looking for a tool that can FIND blogs and websites that use the disqus comment system

    I don't need posting capabilities. I just need a way to find these sites.

    or use scrapebox with a large number of nouns combined with this footprint: "powered by Disqus"
    but its better if you use a different custom footprint as some may not have that power by

    Then use the scrapebox page scanner addon checking for any part of the disqus source code on pages with disqus such as
    <div id="disqus_thread" class=""></div> to verify the list harvested

    another way would be to use a general web crawler and then use the sb addon page scanner to get a larger list as a web crawler will get more than what a google scrape harvest will entail when run long enough but this option is more time/resource consuming

    Can you share ways you'll be posting on those blogs through Disqus?
    Bots/software/manually?

    Do you have a site crawler as well to find the sites?

    Do you mind to share what's good about Disqus?
    What can you get with the blogs other than nofollow links?

    Disqus allows to scrape all its forums via Disqus.
    Actually, we scraped recently 2000+ Disqus forums in 10 hours.

    I meant it's really easy to scrape all Disqus forums by scraping users and their activities on different forums.
    You don't need to use Google.
    Of course, you need to have scraping software using any automation tool like PhantomJS/Selenium/MozRepl/ZennoPoster/etc.

    I see. So manual scraping is enough.

    Anyone have a list of "seed" sites that use Disqus I can use as a starting point?

    I'd appreciate any help.

    Yes! This works well. You can improve it by removing the Disqus official site.

    I think manual scraping will take a lot of time.

    Actually, you can use any Disqus forum as a start point. Your soft must do the rest.
    For example, the small part of active forums we scraped recently (not sorted yet)
