Support » Plugin: Disqus Comment System » too bad it insert affiliate links without you knowing

  • this plugin is great as a commenting system. However, it displays too many ads which is acceptable because it is free plugin. What I do not like is that they hijack your affiliate links and use their own links without you noticing anything. go to google analytic and type in on event type viglink and see how much links are there most of these viglink are affiliate for disqus.

    Right after I discovered this, I google it and there are many articels talking about these things and how can they have made too much money by inserting affiliate links using your audience to make money and probably stealing your own affiliate liknks.

  • Hi there,

    You may disable Disqus Affiliate Links at any time from the Advanced Settings tab in your moderation panel.

    I know I can disable it, but I do not like the fact that it is turned on without my permission. It has been inserting Affiliate Links for a long time without me knowing. So, that is basically a hijack. That is not acceptable at all so I decided to deactivate and delete the plugin.
