Not too long ago comment spam consisted of repetitive words, or short phrases, like ‘play online-poker’ written 50 times in a comment. With better spam filtering by modern blog systems (like WordPress), comment spammers have had to take a kinder, gentler approach… making their comment seem like it may actually be a real comment, unless you look close that is. Here’s a typical example of the kind I am getting now:
“I luved what you’ve wrote. Your blog is great! I luv the way you express things! I’ve read lots of blogs but I find yours a lot more interesting than the others! Keep up the good job!”
The comment above would have been followed by one link, to an instant payday loan, or a thrilling game of online poker.
Make sure to look closely at your comments. Don’t be fooled by the lack of typical spam words. And delete these types of comments when you find them.
