Comment Spam – a blogging inevitability

Website owners in the hope of getting better ranking through backlinks (links that go to their website) and possibly the stray click on their name regularly add comments to any blog they can access.

This is often done using automation. Set up a standard message and then the program goes and finds blog posts on the web and adds a comment automatically. Pretty easy to do when so many bloggers use the same blogging software – like this blog using WordPress.

Blog authors use various tools for flagging comment spam and trashing it automatically. It’s just one of those things that comes with the territory. The spam comments are usually some form of generic compliment “interesting topic” or similar.

However, I did quite like this one (but it’s in the spam bucket regardless).

If you could e-mail me with a few suggestions on just how you made your blog look this excellent, I would be grateful.
