Identifier: Tells the Disqus service how to identify the current page. When the Disqus embed is loaded, the identifier is used to look up the correct thread. If this.page.identifier is undefined, the page's URL will be used. The URL can be unreliable, such as when renaming an article slug or changing domains, so we recommend using your own unique way of identifying a thread.

Url: Tells the Disqus service the URL of the current page. If undefined, Disqus will take the window.location.href. This URL is used to look up or create a thread if this.page.identifier is undefined. In addition, this URL is always saved when a thread is being created so that Disqus knows what page a thread belongs to.

Title: Tells the Disqus service the title of the current page. This is used when creating the thread on Disqus for the first time. If undefined, Disqus will use the <title> attribute of the page. If that attribute could not be used, Disqus will use the URL of the page.
