Today I Received 29 Comments To My Blog!
Hello to all you lovely people out there. Hopefully you are all having a good day and staying safe. Today I just wanted to share the fact that I received no less than 29 comments to my blog at The Make Money Online Zone this morning! This would normally be a great thing, but unfortunately most of these comments were spam!
If you are new to blogging then you probably won't experience this for a while. But for many bloggers, comment spammers can be a real pain!
I started receiving lots of spam comments a while ago when I stumbled upon an internet scam that I reported on my blog. I wrote several articles on the scam in question as it was a good source of traffic. We are trained at Wealthy Affiliate to look for that all important low hanging fruit and that is exactly what this was. I found a high traffic scam that needed to be written about.
But since those articles were published I have received spam comments attempting to promote all kinds of things. The people behind these comments obviously use software that attempt to get backlinks by spamming the comment section of sites like mine.
Just goes to show that you never know how people are going to react when you publish the truth about their scams.
I now have a regular practice of blocking spammers on my website. If you need to know how to do this I wrote some training a while ago on the subject.
No matter how many spammers I block, there is always more the following day!
Thankfully The Make Money Online Zone blog does get genuine comments too, which goes to show that regular content creation does pay off.
Just thought I would share this with you as I'm currently doing a bit of sorting out on my site. I would love to hear from you if you have had a similar experience.
