Blogs are seeing increasing numbers of blog comment spam. This shouldn’t be encouraged.
Signs of blog comment spam:
- Name is not a real name, but a commercial product –
- The URL link is to a commercial site.
- The comment is vague and could apply to any posting on the internet. “Hey nice blog, very informative, thanks for info!”
These kinds of blog comments are not entered by humans but sent programmatically.
Some bots are clever and first comment has no link, but when first comment is approved, secondary comments are just to get links to their site. Spam comments can be marked as spam.
