Blog Comment Spam October 21, 2006

If you have your own blog have you noticed that comment-spam has increased in the past couple of months. Three or four months ago I would get only 1 or 2 spam comments a week. Now, I’m getting 30 to 40 comments that are spam on my blog each week. So, what’s up with that?

I guess the good news is most of it doesn’t ever show up where people can see it. Instead, the WordPress folk detect it and block the posting. But, I am seeing one or two spam comments get through each week. Not a huge problem, but it is amazing how bad it could be without the spam detection. I pity the person who has set up their own blog server without some form of spam content detection and blocking.

my spam levels go up and down, but they seem to roughly correspond with how many/how important my incoming links are. For example, when I got linked to on the ZDNet blog page, suddenly I found my comment-spam upwards of 20 a day. After a week or so, it tapered off to almost-normal levels.

So I guess this increase just means you’re popular, eh?

Laura’s absolutely right. The more posts you have (which normally means more incoming links), the more spam you get…
