The Spam Just Keeps Rolling In

At first I thought it was just a fluke. Someone really desperate to make a quick buck, but it happened again today. My site is gaining enough traction that I'm getting spam comments on my website. It's awesome!


I know that I might be just a wee bit odd, but the fact that the spammers are finding my site means that it's getting out there! I, of course, did what any businesswoman with a lick of sense did and approved both of them.

Comments will only help my rankings in Google so of course I replied to both of them. They

are helping me, not hurting me. In the first one I commented that they must not have read my post and in the second thanked them for their difference in opinion before pointing out the affiliate links they had in their comments.

Even though it is spammers I am happy that my message is starting to get out there. This is only the beginning!

Wishing you success and happiness on your journey.

Take care,

Anne

I agree with RobFore you can change the comment or question to benefit you and make you look good and they look bad.

Thank you for your comment. I'll definitely be keeping it in mind from now on. I might even go and edit both their comment and my response.

Take care.

You are so very welcome

One of the more powerful things we have done over the years is to OPEN & EDIT these spam comments before you approve them. Keep the email addy and the rest - change it to read or ask whatever you want. Save. Then REPLY. Very powerful way to leverage spam.

Yes, indeed. I will be doing that from now on. I did edit one saying that I'd removed the affiliate link because I don't recommend that product. We'll see what the reactions are to that and then I will adjust accordingly.

Thank you for your insight. I will remember it in the future. Take care.

Bang on, Anne. All comments boost our rankings, even spammy and negative ones. People reading comments will spot the spam and the spammers are only sewing the seeds of their own demise for some hoped for short term gain.
With regards to negative comments, if we handle them professionally and don't get drawn into arguments then this will highlight us as professionals and make our following more solid and secure. Great post, thanks for sharing :-)

Thank you, Rich, for your wonderful comment! No arguments on my site right now and I don't plan on being drawn into anything like that anytime soon.

Take care.

Be careful of their links though, usually they don't last very long and that can have a negative impact on your site if it become broken. I was a victim to that back then.

Other than that, glad that Google is finding favor with your website. If he comes back today, can you mention my name? Lol. Make it a great weekend and congratulations.

Thank you for that. I can go back in and edit them so I will keep an eye on the links and if they do get broken I can just delete that section of the comment.

I'll be sure to put in a good word for you if I see him again. Good luck and take care!

The worth of a good vacuum cleaner can be the dust it gathers

I like it! Thank you so much.

Anne,
A very interesting way to go with it. Best of luck and, I guess, Congratulations!

Thank you! Best of luck.

The only problem is if Google sees them as spam, it will affect your ratings with them!

I will have to look into it. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Take care.

I took a look at Kyle's training and they're not technically spam, I suppose. They are relevant to my post and they do make sense they're just trying to promote what I wrote about and said was not recommended.

As others have said you can edit the comment before it goes live. If you are sure they are not spam you should be ok.
