    Question Wordpress Banning Links from Comments

    Hello,

    I had created a site sometime in December. Throughout the first two weeks of January, nearly 250 - 300 comments were posted on various blogs with a link to my site.

    During the third week, about 100 comments were posted in the same manner. All was done manually.

    In early February, I tried commenting with the link in the URL spot, and the comment did not appear on the blog. Usually it says "Comment pending approval".

    So, I sort of tested this.

    I had a blog on wordpress. I commented with my link in the URL spot, and it did not show up in the admin panel for approval. When I changed the URL by adding an extra character, it went through and was available for approval/denial.

    Has Wordpress banned that particular domain from appearing in the comments?

    EDIT: Akismet is the plug-in that is doing all this.

    It could be getting picked up by askimet. Did you check the spam folder on your blog for it? (or have it enabled?).

    You are right. Silly me, I couldn't figure it out.

    Akismet did pick it up.

    Akismet has protected your site from 1 spam comment already, and there's 1 comment in your spam queue right now.
    I guess I can not really do anymore blog commenting on blogs with this plugin, since Akismet picked up on it. Unless the blog owner allows it through Akismet, which is highly unlikely.

    Probably depends on the niche...If its on one of the "star" sites, they may be making those "spam" now with the reports from few months back on the various star-related names that are on malware sites (I can't remember which one was associated with the most malicious sites, but it was a bunch).
    Cheers,
    James
