No matter what type of site you run, there are a few other potential benefits to turning off comments in WordPress.
For example, you won’t have to worry about spam comments making your site look messy, or filling up your posts with spammy links. In addition, disabling comments means your pages will be leaner, which can have a positive effect on your site’s performance.
Every site is different, so you’ll need to weigh up the pros and cons of comments for your particular niche and audience. If you decide you’d like to disable comments, either partly or entirely, there are a number of easy ways to make it happen.
