Review on Intensedebate

Intensdebate is a plugin that allows bloggers to share traffic, and/or reward those that leave comments on there blog with a backlink, track users, and many other things explained below. Intensedebate works great with blogs on several platforms.

The Intensedebate application, which is quit simple to use, is shares some simliar functionality with ComLuv, a wordpress plugin ideal for blog networking.

I'll try to explain a little about Intensedebate.

First you sign up for an account at

You will have two options to choose from;

a) if your blog is a hosted blog, meaning it is on the blogger or wordpress server

b) if your blog is self hosted, meaning your blog is installed on your own domain.

If you have a hosted blog when signing up all you have to do is enter the url into the sign up and it will now be associated with Intensedebate.

If you have a self hosted blog you will simply downdload and install the plugin on your site. If you use Wordpress you will upload it to your plugins folder and then active if from your dashbord.

IntenseDebate offers some really great features:

Comment Threading
Improve the conversation within the comment section and reply directly to an individual comment. Indented replies make following various conversations manageable.

Respond to and moderate comments with ease via email, even if you're on the go. Just because you're away from your computer doesn't mean the conversation stops.

Email Notifications
Commenters receive email alerts when a response to their comment is posted, linking them directly to the response. Add in reply-by-email, along with the option to subscribe to all comments and let the debate ensue!

Commenter Profiles
Commenter profiles let you and your readers learn more about each other. Watch the conversation go to new levels once you and your readers are able to get to know each other. Don't forget, their universal profiles can be used on any site with IntenseDebate!

IntenseDebate offers some truly hardcore moderation options. Customize your settings to moderate by keywords, number of links, commenter email, and/or IP addresses.

Reputation Points & Comment Voting
Your readers will start to build their commenter reputations when they create an IntenseDebate account. Their reputation score is based on the quantity, and more importantly the quality, of the comments they've made across all sites with IntenseDebate. Bring the quality comments to the forefront.

Plugins API
We've opened up our code for developers to introduce their own creations into the debate. These enhancements include Seesmic video comments, PollDaddy polls, YouTube videos, smileys, and more. Interested in building your own customizations? Check out our Plugins API.

Your readers can post comments easily using their OpenID. They can tie their OpenID to their IntenseDebate profile so they won't have to worry about remembering another set of login credentials.

We've built some fancy widgets based on your feedback. You can display your blog's comment stats, the most recent comments made on your blog, your most popular posts, the most recent comments you've made, and even who the top IntenseDebaters are.

Give your commenters the option to send a simultaneous tweet when they post a comment. It's a great way to let your commenters spread the word about your site and drive new traffic and comments!

Facebook Connect
Open up the debate and let anyone with a Facebook account post comments on your site with our Facebook Connect integration!

RSS Readers & Tracking
RSS readers make life simple. That's why we've integrated IntenseDebate comments with Google Reader and Bloglines (with more RSS readers on the way) so you can read and post comments directly from your RSS reader.

Once you join intensedebate, make sure you click on the service link and fill in as many programs as you are a member of in the fields so that your comments and blog post are circulated more widely.

Using both ComLuv and Intensedebate can significantly increase your backlinks, with can result in an increase in your bottom line.

I apologize that the images are not working. I tried to make this Revpage as informational as possible. The images are screen shots of the varous pages within the intensedebate sign up process. For some reason the images are not showing up.

However, the information is good and valid. I hope you can get some use out of this.
