Receiving spam comments on your blogposts can unfortunately be a common occurrence. Despite the use of spam detection tools, spam comments can often be missed. It is important to moderate comments on your blog to ensure only genuine comments are published and seen by visitors to your blog.
However recently we have noted a little confusion over what constitutes a spam comment on your blogpost. Usually you receive a vague, complimentary blog comment that arouses your suspicion over whether or not it is a human who has posted it!
So here is a little checklist with our 6 ways to spot whether a comment on your blogpost is spam:
1. It doesn’t mention anything about the post its responding to
2. It isn’t on any topic related to what our blog is about
3. It’s written in poor English
4. Could the comment just be cut and pasted into every blogpost he/she comes across on any site, regardless of content?
