How to Add Comment to Static Site Hosted on Google Cloud

Majority of low traffic and upcoming or newbie bloggers are jumping into google cloud free tier web hosting.

Because as starters in the blogging world, they do not have the huge amount of money to spend on webhosting services like goddady, hostgator, bluehost, interserver and the rest of them,

Bloggers have been searching for a solution on this, but could not find a solution.

As a result of this problem, I have also searched for solutions online but could not find any.

I was also referred to implement some hmtl and css codes on the back end of my website, but no exact tutorial on how to do this.

Because of the rising request popping up on google search and other search engines out there “on static site comment not working,”
