100,000 Spam Comments

I had to turn off Do-follow and Keywordluv. I just don’t have the time to moderate so many comments each day. There are too many dickheads out there using spamming tools to waste my time. There is a changing environment in SEO and blog comments, so I am now using Disqus for comments, as it uses java script to embed comments so they are not counted as outgoing links. Anyway, thanks to all those that have made comments over the last year or so contributing to the 4000 + legit (ish) comments on this blog. I appreciate the extra user generated content you have added to this site.

Check out my Akismet stats:


Turning off Dofollow and keywordluv has sorted out my spam issues.

These stats are a pretty extreme example of spamming. This blog has been do-follow for the most part for the last 2 years. It has been on many do-follow lists, and I know the only reason many people come here is to comment to get a backlink. I knew that, and I supported that idea. But there comes a point when it becomes too much. I still stand behind my belief that Keywordluv is a fantastic plug-in for generating extra comments for your blog.
