How to Detect Spamming Comments

Writing article is an enjoyable hobby for me.

Most of us writers expect to read some comments left by our faithful viewers after publishing each blog everyday.

It is nice to have honest comments, encouraging advises and words of appreciation to show how well sought are our blogs.
However, how do we detect comments left is consider spam or not?

Lately, I had noticed several of the comments left on my articles which are spam ads and links to different websites. These spam comments are detected by Akismet which co-operated by WordPress.

I am sure that I am not the only one  who is facing spamming comments as I had read several Blogjob writers posting blogs regarding these issue.

It is a good news that writers had united, work together to stop spammers from spreading by notifying the Blogjob support team by flagging or report them.

 

Here are 5 useful tips to detect spammer comments:

1. Guest User-
Weird usernames such as “Online shopping deals” or “Commercial Carpet” are definitely sales people. None of the writers that I had followed use this straight forward usernames which clearly stated that they are not genuine writers at Blogjob. These are spammers from external sites, as @laksh had mentioned.

In addition, look at their email address. They registered odd email address under weird websites. I had seen some porno emails on my spammer emails. Remember not to open them.

 

 

2. Same Off Topic Comments-
Leaving the same sentences in the comment box of different writers is consider spamming too.

The most common comments are:

# Hello my friend! I wish to say that this post is amazing, great written and come with approximately all important infos. I would like to peer extra posts like this .

# Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful info being shared freely out there.
# 154388 20912Thank you for your extremely great info and feedback from you. san jose used car 889129

You may notice that these comments are not related to your blog contents at all.

Copy and paste the same comment on different articles across Blogjob, that is something we should not do.

 

 

3. Advertisement Comments-

These fake writers or maybe Guests usually add in external links and writes something that is totally off the topic. Some of them are external readers, non registered Blogjob writers.

In other words, not related to your blogs.

One good example I had recently read was:

( I am sure you had seen this message, right? )

 

 

4. Empty profile page

Most fake writers profile page is empty, blank, no avatar and no blog.

Avoid these people.

Do not click connect to them.

Press “Delete permanently
What you should do:

Report immediately to Blogjob @sheridan regarding this fake writers.

They will take actions against those annoying people and we genuine writers will have a peace of mind.

Do not allow spammers to write freely.

Let us all stop spammers from spreading.

Thereto, writers will feel much comfortable, happy and continue writing at Blogjobor  for many years to come.

Hope that these tips are helpful.
