Discovery helps people find new and interesting discussions and stories from within Disqus. Discovery also helps publishers drive increases in internal recirculation and external referral traffic, resulting in increased advertising revenues. Discovery is not just one feature – it is woven throughout Disqus and a driving principle behind our entire platform. So, if you are using Disqus and want to turn off the discovery, you can follow below steps.
1. Login to your Disqus administration page. Go to Settings > Discovery. At here, you can select the discovery level and to turn off the discovery option, you will need to select Just comments. Save the change.
2. You can see the changes on your site with no discovery box now.
