Having a good and better comment box can contribute to your site SEO and page rank, having may people to comment on your blog can increase your site traffic, and add value to your SEO there maybe many keyword you forget to mention in your post which commentator help you to mention, getting lots of comments on a single post make a blogger or writer feel happy, because it knows that his/her blog was read but all these cant be achieve with the suck and confusing default comment box. (on Blogger).

Why Removing Default Comment Box
Right before i was using the default comment box, i feel ashamed of my blog because the default comment box doesn't encourage ME to comment on my own Blog so what did the readers do? many bloggers may keep wondering why people not commenting on their blog? there are many circumstances contribute to this but one of the major circumstances is  bad or uninteresting comment box.  The default comment box sucks and i dont see the reason why you have to keep on using it, not friendly user interface, not applicable to many social networks, no free commenting without you log in in, No SEO value, just sucks!
