WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 269 – Interview With Daniel Ha, CEO and Co-founder of Disqus

In this episode, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Daniel Ha, CEO and co-founder of Disqus. Ha explains why he created the service, what his thoughts are on large sites disabling comments, and the state of comments on the web.

We also discuss the company’s monetization strategies and what opportunities exist to generate revenue around comments. Ha shares what the company learned from its Sponsored Comments experiment and what it’s doing to improve communication with customers.

Plugins Picked By Marcus:

Woo Cashback provides each user with their own personal wallet with a way to purchase items from your store while using their wallet money or credit.

Export Comment Emails allows you to export the emails from comments to a CSV or XML file allowing you to import to MailChimp or ConvertKit.

WP Monitor adds a dashboard to the WordPress backend that displays updates, site, and server information in one convenient place. You can monitor one or multiple websites on the go.
