Disqus vs Squarespace Comments

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.thegoodtrade.com/

Hi! We are migrating our site from 7.0 to 7.1 — our site receives over 1M+ unique visitors per month mostly from organic search and our rankings/traffic have dropped significantly since google's core web vitals update. The migration to 7.1 is mostly to fix our speed and mobile responsiveness issues (we have added a LOT of extra javascript in on our 7.0 site which is in developer mode). 

We have thousand of comments we would like to migrate from the old site to the new site but we haven't found a good solution for this. Here are the things we are consider —

1) Does anyone have a clever solution for an automatic migration of our comments? we've seen a workaround by export to disqus and re-uploading however we are concerned about site speed by adding disuqus plug in. 

2) does anyone have insight on wether disqus would have significant pagespeed impact? We'll be testing this on a dummy site but thought I'd ask. 

3) does anyone have any experience with Openweb and integrating it with squarespace? It seems to be a really beautiful interface but also concerned with pagespeed impact. 

Thanks so much!!
