Letting Comment Spam Take Over Your Blog – How to Let Your Blog Go #5

Posted By达伦·罗斯 21st of June 2008 其他博客技巧 0 Comments

让 - 你 - 博客 - 围棋 One of the saddest things that I see on blogs is where a blogger completely gives up on staying on top of comment spam.

你挖掘到他们的档案寻找他们的主题信息和专业知识,才发现自己的评论部分与从恼人的自我宣传的范围注释完全千疮百孔,以链接处方药的网站,房贷优惠,附属产品,色情,死链接和任何的排水沟/垃圾场等地。

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.

Solution:今天的“解决方案”分为两个部分。

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!

2.确定垃圾评论的策略- 评论垃圾邮件解决方案下半年是工作,你要做未来垃圾评论什么。有各种各样的选择对你打开,包括:

  • 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.

  1. I can relate to the topic!
    I use DO follow (because I sincerely believe that great free content should be rewarded) and all I ask for is to link to valuable Content!

    Thousands of comment spams and the ones linking to unwanted topics like porn of viagra are the easiest to delete and blacklist.

    It’s the ones that deliberately link to affiliate and sales pages, brand new blogs (some even without a single posts, just the WordPress template things) and catalogues that are difficult to manage.

    Although it still takes a lot of time to weed these out, I’ve now installed a plugin that let me keep the valuable comments and NOfollow their links.

    Works like charm. :-)

  2. 我刚开始收到关于我自己的博客评论,但我可以很快地看到,如果你与垃圾邮件淹没,可能涉及的潜在时间。

    I’ve chosen to moderate every comment on every post because I’m also concerned about the prospects of libel — if a comment included something libellous and it had been published on my blog, my understanding is that I, as the blog’s publisher, could be held accountable for any libel writ in the same way a newspaper (rather than a specific journalist) is in the mainstream media.

  3. I have the same problem as well. Finally I’ve decided that I turn off the comments when it one month old except those on the sidebar.

  4. 这是有趣的...我只是有一个关于垃圾评论的皮疹同事讨论这个清晨送到他写一个博客。一个后产生至少20个垃圾评论,所以这篇文章非常及时,内容翔实。

  5. Helpful, Thanks. Still don’t understand how to STOP the robot spam comments from coming in in the first place.

  6. Thats a very valuable note to keep an eye on. Thanks for sharing this.

  7. As a new blogger, I must say I’m envious of this problem and look forward to having to deal with it someday soon! ; )

  8. Can’t agree more with point no. 1: The image or the brand of your blog is the most important thing, especially if you are writing as an authority in your field. That is what builds the trust of your readers.

    If comments contain irrelevant stuff (or stuff that is outright wrong), it would reduce the credibility of your website.

    I employ a technique not mentioned by Darren:

    我的网站上,读者可以注册,可以登录使用他们的ID和密码。我只允许登录的用户评论。

    Yes, this means a far lesser number of comments. But it also means that the comments are relevant, and come only from people who are actually interested in the topic being discussed!

    This means I spend less time moderating comments, and more time researching and writing my articles!

  9. When I was at Blogger, I rarely received any comment spam. Over at WordPress, I’m amazed at the number of spammy comments that are caught with Askimet.

  10. I think I go with Ian, moderating your comments manually may be the best option

  11. Comment spam is a big problem for me over atCSSnewbie。我忽略了我的意见整整一个星期,然后不得不花了一个多小时昨天清理出的垃圾邮件!我有超过650个没用的意见需要整理。

    On the plus side, my blog is back to being relatively spam-free. On the down side, I’ve added some more “blacklist” words to the list to help hold back the tide: you can no longer mention “tickets” or “preteens” in my comments. :)

  12. 最可气的关于寻找这样的博客,往往是,他们已经得到了一些不错的内容..如果他们只希望积极主动,与您列出的提示,垃圾评论,可以很容易地管理。亚博娱乐app官网

    Great tips!

  13. After reading this post I got worried that I let some spam slip though. So I went and scanned thought about 30 pages of comments. I only found 2-3 that were spam.

    What was more interesting was reading the real comments and remembering conversations you had a year ago. It’s fun to see how your ideas evolved via comments.

    It also reminds you why you have a blog in the first place.

  14. 即使你认为你是最重要的评论垃圾广告,it can still creep in. Sometimes commenters who leave their blog URL in your comment form will abandon their blogs and their domain names. Usually this just results in the link now going to a dead site. Sometimes it goes to a 404 page. Sometimes the “dead” site it goes to is riddled with spam, so it looks to Google like you are linking to a spammy site. Sometimes enterprising spammers buy up dead domain names and now that link on your site, the one that came from that nice blogger a year ago, is going to a full-blown spam site.

  15. 我使用Gmail,一个标签,上面有一个WordPress关键字过滤。我觉得这让我们的生活变得更加容易。

    Right now most of my comments are spam, and I don’t have time to delete them all, so I have moderation on. I check my gmail while I am awake probably at least once an hour on average. All WordPress mail comes in with a WordPress label. I quickly click on it and if it’s spam I delete the email and forget about it. This keeps me up to date. If the comment is real however I log into wordpress and approve it right away.

    然后,大约一个星期一次,我去到WordPress和删除所有正在等待审核的垃圾邮件。我可以安全地假定他们都是垃圾邮件,因为我一直在批准所有未本周所有垃圾邮件的人。我的伟大工程。

  16. My site doesn’t generate the amount of comments yet to the point that it is unmanageable, but I have experienced the aggravation of comment spam. I am a firm believer of reader interaction and welcome comments of any kind. WordPress does identify some of the spam successfully, but not all of it. The idea Darren presented of shutting down comments on old posts is a good one. Thanks Darren!

  17. 我在博客和Problogger已经被我的一个朋友,Avyayyabo娱乐a建议新手。我真的很喜欢你这么多的新手和我一样提供了援助之手的方式。感谢您分享这一信息。

    您书签。

  18. My readers aren’t bloggers, so I don’t get too many comments. Once a month I turn off comments and pingbacks on all posts older than a month, through a MySQL query. And although I don’t moderate or require registration, I do use a captcha plugin, Akismet and Bad Behavior to eliminate all spam. What they don’t catch on occasion, I just delete. If it’s someone advertising relevant products, I email them and advise them they can buy an ad, but their comment has been pulled.

    我也用的情况下一个伟大的插件,无后续情况,所以如果我不真正得到评论(罕见),我能确定他们是否能得到链接爱或不。

  19. I must agree with Shanel Yang that this is similar to a movie star having too many fans. Those of you that receive that many comments must feel special; I do understand the frustrations that you might be going through dealing with all that useless material when you could be spending time more effectively. It goes back to the basics; good comments are good; bad ones are bad!

  20. New to blogging—-so what DO Search Engines look for?

  21. 伟大的职位,
    垃圾评论是博客世界的魔鬼。我使用手动评论管理我的网站上,但它是一个小的(尚未建立)的网站,我没有得到大量的评论(还)

  22. I keep open comments on all entries and have dofollow enabled, so it’s spammers heaven really… if only they were to get through :).

    Akismet handles a great load of keeping the trash out but as some comments do manage to get by Akismet I have manual comment moderation on as well on a first post basis.

    Approved once and you’re instantly through though so legit commenters just have to wait once.

  23. This post came as a welcome reminder. Most of my posts only receive a maximum of 20 comments each, so it’s fairly easy to keep up with comment spam, but I’ve just been into one particularly popular post and removed most of the self-promotional comments. That was one of the first posts I wrote and had forgotten about it for ages (and was also a bit more lenient with what got through then). Thankfully, none were porn/viagra/casinos.

    Agree with elise and Case Stevens in previous comments. You think you monitor the comments and still a few dodgy ones will creep in.

  24. My blog was once attacked by those robot spammers who posted links full of pornographic contents.

    What I did was moderate the comments manually and make my ‘Leave a Reply’ block on other pages. But, I didn’t receive much comments after that. So, I switch the ‘Leave a Reply’ back to my blog and hopes that I’ll receive some comments back.

    不管怎样,再次感谢您的提示。

  25. 瑞秋:机器人垃圾评论?您没有验证码一个点击提交之前,必须手动输入?

    Raag Vamdatt: I frequent several sites (though I am sure there are thousands more) which utilize a comment registration system. Do you find that people who post comments are writing more in first person, i.e. I this, I that; and is there an ability for interactive commenting?

    伊恩:我使用博客,WordPress允许你moderate comments on the site? If so, as Blogger does, why do you prefer to do so via email?

  26. Nice post, very informative. Thanks for sharing your the tips of how to get rid of comment spam.

  27. Ari Herzoq: I see people writing usually in 1st person. And yes, people can always interact through comments.

    例如,我们在这里做什么(直通评论说话)可以,即使有评论登记制度来完成。

    The registration system just adds a layer of security. Otherwise, the entire experience remains the same.

  28. What surprises me most, is that when browsing through the archives of some really popular blogs, I find a couple of spam comments.

  29. As someone who has left quite a few unfinished ideas rot in the dust — I think WordPress should come with a suicide mode ; helping the world become a better place less cluttered place.

    If you don’t blog for more than a month or so it should just send you a brief e-mail telling you that its closing up and that its sorry that things didn’t work out.

    Of course, the first thing I would do is disable to suicide switch, so never mind.

  30. If you dont like those spam comments I suggest and I currently use spamwow, which stops those pesty spammers, It is by far the best one out there!

  31. 感谢您的提示所有的声音都好,我得到了更多的必要的信息,我一直记在心里。
