Take away from these spam comments

Honestly, in the past, I have accepted many of these spam comments and never realized they were spam. Any newbie Blogger would love to see getting such comments because these spam comments work as an ego booster, and they don’t look spam in any way.

However, always keep in mind to accept only those comments which add value to the topic.  Do not approve comments like “Thanks @author, for useful the information”, “Very informative posts”, “Love your writing style”, etc.

If you are using anti-spam comment plugin like Akismet, it will filter most of the spam comments, but again by the end many of these comments bypass the Akismet filter, and you have to take a manual action.

I have already discussed the similar issue in the past ” Blog Comments: When is it harmful.”

Do let me know how you filter out spam comments from genuine comments, and how many times have you encountered one of the above blog comments and accepted it? If you find the list useful, do share it on Facebook and Google plus.

  1. Most of the spam comments manifest similar signature or trait in regards to the general feedback structure and lack specific coverage on the topic under discussion. Usually I will overlook and discard comments that do not include any keywords associated with the blog post.

  2. o…oh…… i must confess I have been accepting some of such comments……but will be more careful now….

  3. You have done good job ! many blog owner don’t know whether the comment is Genuine or spam, confused to approve it or not, thanks for creating such awareness.

  4. I have just started my blog, and i am getting lots of comment from the user which is completely different from my blog and post topic, and sometime like your given list,should i approve that, what is the effect of spam comment on blog

  5. Thats quite a big list. yup most of them look genuine comment and also fit for any topic. Good you have shared this. Next time when I moderate I won’t miss these kind of bot comments

  6. Ohh!! such a long list harshe…Although I have not started received many comments in my posts. But most of them are like : Nice article, Useful info, Thanks etc etc…. In that case should I delete them? As a beginner blogger it is very tough to take such step. As you have also accepted that earlier you used to accept all comments. Comments are like appreciations, so whatever I get it makes me happy……..but your realization after long time is a lesson for us….ll definitely work on this.

    1. Hi Santanu, to me the problem with accepting comments like the spam ones in the article is that because they are generic they don’t actually continue the conversation started by the blog post. While they can be a comfort to the person that wants to post a comment but doesn’t want to go first, they ultimately devalue what you’re trying to do which is typically engage with your audience. Kind of like empty compliments (‘you’re great’, ‘love your work’) rather than thoughtful reactions that add value (‘I really like the way you’ve styled your hair’ or ‘you raise a good point about spam comments and how they can feel like they validate you’).

  7. Thank you for sharing a list of this would surely keep them in mind and check it out weather there are any in mine as well

  8. I thought I developed an eye for spam, eespecially if it is completely off-topic, but sometimes they get in a lucky shot or two. And if you take a close look at that list, this doesn’t come as a surprise, some of them are really well done (almost don’t want to admit it).
    In the last few weeks I get a LOT of spam that passes my antispambee on WP, I guess they are not recognized as spam because they are entered manually with no links.

  9. Hi Harsh Thanks for this post πŸ™‚ . I am new to blogging thats why i wasn’t aware of spams comments i use to approve all the comments but later i got little knowledge of SEO and now i only approve valid comments.. thanks for the post..

  10. These spam comments can trick anybody for sure. Thanks for coming up them in order to help us realise the extent of dubious work which is being done by some.
    Will be more careful in future.

  11. I got your link to this post from twitter. I have a doubt, what actually these type of SPAM comments do?. are they harmful for our site reputation. I mean, They are not leaving a LINK or something else, its just texts.
    Can you please explain something more about this.

    1. Hey Krishna,

      Even if it is a text, it degrades the quality of your blog. Comments are an integral part of your blog. Your blog comments are also calculated as a part of your post content.The number of high quality comments your post receives will also improve the overall ranking of your content.

  12. Vivekanand Arumanda

    This is a huge list of spam comments that may look like genuine. To be frank, i have accepted few of spam comments in the past. But now, I am taking lot of care when it comes to comments πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for this useful and much needful post-Harsh πŸ™‚

  13. Hey Harsh,

    Visited your blog after a quite long.

    Happy to read your content. I always do πŸ™‚

    Well seriously we should take care of comments. As google may consider it as we are promoting spamy sites.

    So, Definitely an eye opening post for newbie.

    don’t do mistake which we did πŸ™‚

    Thanks,
    Piyush
