Google confirme la résolution du problème d'indexation des commentaires Disqus

Google’s Martin Splitt confirmed earlier this week that Google has fixed an issue with indexing and ranking some content found within the Disqus commenting platform. It is not clear how many sites were impacted by this issue, but Google said it is now resolved.

Qu'est-ce que Disqus ? Disqus is a commenting platform that allows blogs and publishers to add comments to their web sites. While a lot of sites no longer allow user-generated comments on their sites, Disqus is a still fairly popular platform used to manage, maintain and moderate comments.

Le problème. It is not exactly clear how long Google had issues indexing Disqus comments. When Disqus first launched, I know many blog platforms that wanted their comments visible to Google had to use workarounds to get them indexed. But as Google became better at rendering JavaScript, it began to index most Disqus comments by default. But not all.

Glenn Gabe a écrit un article de blog détaillé en décembre dernier, documentant les problèmes que Google rencontre avec l'indexation de certains commentaires alimentés par Disqus.

Google a résolu le problème. Last week, Gary Illyes from Google took notice of the issue via a tweet and passed it along to his colleague Martin Splitt. Splitt spotted the issue and escalated it internally within Google. Splitt said on Twitter on June 18th, “This looks like a glitch on our end. Keep an eye on this the next couple of days, it should eventually, possibly, work.”

Quelques jours plus tard, le 20 juin, Splitt a déclaré que cela fonctionnait maintenant et : "C'est résolu pour tout le monde."

Pourquoi nous nous soucions. If you or your clients use Disqus, you should keep an eye on your rankings and indexing patterns. If the content in those Disqus comments were previously not indexed, you may notice ranking changes after Google begins indexing them — in either a positive or negative way. You also may want to adjust how those comments are displayed to Google, depending on what you see.
