Good Comments Going to Spam Folder

Last Update: September 02, 2017

Give and Take is Taking a Toll

Many of you may already know of the give and take comment section here at Wealthy Affiliate. For those of you who don't know you can find it here - https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co...

Simply put, it's where you post your amazing articles and content and ask the community to post comments on your page. You also give comments to those who comment on your page in return. Hence the reason for calling it "The give and take comment thread".

Recently I've had some stress with this. I took time from my busy schedule to add comments to my fellow Wealthy Affiliates' beautiful posts. A few of them contacted me saying that they did not receive comments from me. I resent the comments (rewriting them from scratch once more) and they still did not get it. In one case I redid the comment 3 times.

What happened to my comments?

Where did my comments go? I did them. So I know I'm not going crazy. Did they disappear into thin air? Nope. They went to the recipients' Spam Folder. Imagine that! These were great comments. No links. No selling. No promoting of myself or my products. Genuine comments after spending time reading content on peoples' pages.

My only conclusion is that I am a little TOO active in posting comments and WA's spam blocker is seeing me as a spammer (which I'm not). LOL


Moral of the Story?

This is an important lesson for all of us. We need to check our spam folder and not assume that only bad or spammy comments go to the spam folder. Good and even great comments could get classified as spam. So be aware. That one good comment in your spam folder could be your next sale.

All the best.

I didn't know that good comments can be classified as spam without being classified as one deliberately by the receiver. Now that you have raised that I will constantly be checking. Thanks

Hi Kevon , good to know that but I thought when there is a comment the WP platform should have a number shown on comment plugin?

So the problem of comment get into spam folder shouldn't arise. I only use the comment thread once so correct me if I am wrong.

The problem is that it was not showing up as a comment at all. That is why they missed it. You have to actively check you spam folder. It seems that Spam comments don't get counted. Will investigate this.

Check spam folder is a tedious job. It can be flooded with hundreds of junk email a day. I used to just clear all. Now that you mentioned, probably I have to check every day. thanks

It can be indeed. But better check it or run the risk of losing a potential sale.
