Some bloggers folks avoid to comment on their website and they completely remove comment content from website. Google search team member Garry Illyes said at state of search conference that if a website having comments and reactions help to rank better in SERP’s result rather than third party comments or reactions such as social media network.

He also added that having commented or reactions directly help to website. Comment on website is on site engagement signals. So my advice to all bloggers that don’t avoid or completely remove comment, but one thing Google did not tell in search conference that if comment is engagement signal then how they deal with spammy comment or reactions because if it is on site signal, most of the blogger can buy comment on their sites.
