Martin Splitt of Google confirmed that Google has fixed an issue with indexing and ranking some content found within the Disqus commenting platform. Right now, we don’t know how many sites were affected by the issue, but Google has resolved it.

For those who are unaware, Disqus is a platform that lets blogs and publishers add comments to their web sites. Disqus is a somewhat popular platform that is used to manage comments.

It’s unclear how long Google had indexing issues with the Disqus comments.

Glenn Gabe wrote a detailed blog post last December documenting the issues Google has with indexing some comments powered by Disqus.

When Google’s Gary Illyes noticed the issue via a tweet, he passed it along to Martin Splitt, who escalated it internally within Google. Splitt said on Twitter, “This looks like a glitch on our end. Keep an eye on this the next couple of days, it should eventually, possibly, work.”

Google fixed the issue. Last week, Gary Illyes from Google took notice of the issue via a tweet and passed it along to his colleague Martin Splitt. Splitt spotted the issue and escalated it internally within Google. Splitt said on Twitter on June 18th, “This looks like a glitch on our end. Keep an eye on this the next couple of days, it should eventually, possibly, work.”

A couple of days later, on June 20th, Splitt said it is now working and, “It’s been resolved for everyone.”
