I can totally understand why a blogger might feel tempted to give up on moderating comment spam on one level – however would strongly advise against taking this course of action for two main reasons:
1.博客目标和品牌– everything that appears on your website either adds to or takes away from the objectives you’re attempting to achieve on your blog. It also impacts your blog’s brand and reputation.
博主,你我知道什么是评论垃圾广告nd how hard it is to keep it off our blogs – but the average person using the web only sees the comments and links in your comments as part of your site and many of them will associate it with you.
至少，它表明你是谁不关心不够，以保持良好的状态你的网站的人 - 在最坏的情况（在没有受过教育），它可以创建一个感觉，你推广人在你的博客留下的链接。
2. SEO– Point #1 is my main concern but I suspect there is also another impact of comment spam on your blog. I recently arrived on another blog’s post that had 101 comments on it – 95 of which were comment spam. I did a word count of the page and found that the whole page had 1552 words on it. The post itself have 210 words, the rest (1342) were the comments.
What had been a page with a tightly defined focus in the eyes of search engines had become a site that had more words associated with porn, gambling and drugs than the topic at hand. Not only this the comments didn’t have no follow tags on their links and pointed to all manner of dodgy sites and dead links.
Google doesn’t like links that don’t lead anywhere and frown even more on links pointing to ‘bad neighborhoods’ – I can only imagine the impact that comment spam had upon this posts search engine ranking.
1. Clean up your comment spam– two years ago it was brought to my attention that one of my old blogs had become infested with comment spam. I’d not noticed it because the email address that I’d used to notify me of new comments on that blog had stopped working for a few months. I was confronted with thousands of spam comments throughout hundreds of posts. The only solution for me was to clean it up. It took me most of a day to do it but I went through every post on that blog and deleted comments manually. it was a job that sucked – but I got them all!
- Moderate All Comments Manually– switch comments to manual moderation and manually approve all comments
- 使用垃圾评论审核工具– there are a variety of tools out there that can help you moderate comments. The most common of these is Akismet (although even this won’t stop them all). Most blog platforms also have different levels of moderation built in. For example here at ProBlogger I queue all first time commenters for moderation.
- 外包评论审核– not an ideal solution if you want to be aware of everything happening on your blog but this is becoming a more common solution for bigger blogs who assign someone the task of moderating all comments.
- 关闭评论- 一个相当极端的一步，但它的东西，很多博主都使出。这不是我的首选的解决方案，但是我想，让垃圾邮件发送者接替我的博客之前完全做到这一点。
- Turn off Comments to Old Posts- 一个不太极端的解决方案是不允许在帖子的评论比XXX周/月以上。该理论认为，以前的帖子吸引了较低的有机会话，以便一旦你给了每个人一个机会来评论的帖子，你将其关闭。
What NOT to do about Comment Spam
Please don’t take an ‘ignore it and it will go away’ approach with comment spam. From what I’ve seen ignoring comment spam can actually make the problem worse as I’ve heard from some that there are lists that circulate among spammers that contain blogs that don’t moderate comments and even posts with certain keywords that they should target. Allowing one comment spam to slip through can actually lead to a deluge of them in future.
