Very cool piece of software. It will be interesting to see how it rolls out further. Any idea when the ETA is for integrations released for other platforms?

We currently support Invision Community and Squarespace.

Next week we will launch Wordpress and XenForo. More to come 🙂

Will topics listed in Community Hive appear in Google/Bing/AI search results?

Yes but only if:

  1. You enable "Discover feed" for your community
  2. Your community does not contain explicit content
  3. And the content that is discoverable is allowed to be viewed without logging in

If someone "follows" a site or topic on Community Hive, can they comment on the topic right here on Community Hive and have the comments stay on Community Hive? Thus, reading it on the original community, but leaving comments here.

No, all interactions have to be done on your community. Community Hive is designed to send traffic to your community so we avoid having any interactions on this site 🙂

That was my hope and guess. Thank you.

I used to pull in RSS feeds from other sites. I linked to articles around the web that didn't allow comments. This enabled people to read on the original site and talk about it on my site. This caused issues with the publishers because my site showed higher in Google, even though I was only linking to their content. 

A similar situation could happen here.

I don't think that would be the same sort of thing here. Since Community Hive is designed to send traffic to the communities that create the content, you do not have the commenting part here. Google will see us as an aggregator not a source of content.

Also, the feed changes very, very quickly so things will change frequently. And, of course, we do not store your content snippets forever.

Great initiative!

This will be another avenue for communities to engage and appeal to a greater audience beyond what they're already doing. Great work Invision Community. 😉

I'm really keen to see how this grows in the future. No doubt it will assist the community in finding resources, applications and plugins having read about the marketplace closure. It's all just a really positive development in my opinion. Well done!
