Thread: Common Blog Tool Spam Comments

    Common Blog Tool Spam Comments

    Don't know if I got the point of this post across effectively or not, but I've been seeing a fair number of verbatim blog posts (across 20+ sites) that appear to come from a tool(s) I'm not familiar with. Anyway, figured if you use one of these tools, you might find it useful to not "reuse" other folks "spam" and if you're a new blog owner who's trying to give "DoFollow" love, you might find it useful to see some of the low hanging fruit on spam. I'm not including "enhancement" or some of the other common spam, but more of focused on the flavor that gets past Askimet. Here's 5 to start. More as I have time. I've just gotten to not approving any comments unless its from someone I've run into in the niche, know, or makes a legitimate point, provides a link to something I find useful, etc except in the sports niche where readers tend to get fired up over whatever stance/point you make.

    I'm seeing 93-97 comments per 100 == spam over the past month with the number rising. To the point, I just queue all in askimet and am even debating on turning off comments altogether on all of my sites.
