Why am I receiving crazy comments lately?

Last Update: November 12, 2020

As the screenshot above shows, the comments look like they're coming from Google, they're not, are they?

The email that I receive when one of these is shared says that it's a TrackBack.

Should I be marking these as spam, deleting them, approving them or doing something else with them?

Is there a way to prevent them?

They're not a good thing, are they?

Why am I receiving them, do you know?

Thank you for commenting, asking more questions and/or answering some of the questions!

Good morning Tony,

I hope you're doing well.

Definitely spam Tony, I would delete them. I know that it is rather painful.

Recently I put a few of my websites on a dedicated server, the server works really well, however, I am getting quite a bit of spam. This is something that needs sorting out.

Have a great day.

I am having similar, if not the same, problem.

The site I take care of for a non profit gets similar one-word comments, several a day, with the occasional 3 or 4 page long comment in what appears to be Russian.

I have been marking them as spam, but they are getting to be quite a pain. I will take a look at the links below and see if that helps.

Good luck with yours,

I would say spam myself, Tony!

Trackbacks mean that some people are trying to link their websites to yours. I treat them as spams.

Hi Tony
Unfortunately the image is very hard to see so I cant read the comments.
Chrystopher did a training a while back on disabling track backs which might help: Cheers
