WordPress Spam Control

Don’t you hate when people post SPAM as comments? That happens a lot with WordPress unfortunately. You want to encourage your visitors to comment, so it’s wise to make it easy for them to post comments, but you certainly don’t want SPAM posted! That leaves a bad impression for others who visit your site since they’ll think you’re not paying attention to your site and are allowing it to be used to launch SPAM or maybe even malware.

Why am I getting SPAM?

The main reason that hackers and others post SPAM as WordPress comments is because it’s free advertising for them. They want to use your website to promote themselves. Plus the backlinks from your website helps them with Google rankings. That’s unfortunate, but it’s unfortunately a fact of life.

How WordPress Support combats spam

Using an intelligent algorithm for determining what is SPAM and what is not, our code wades through all your comments to determine what it believes to be SPAM. Once we have that short list we (a human) will review the comment and make a final determination. If we conclude the comment is SPAM - and it is usually very clear that it is or is not SPAM - then we will delete it. We do this across all of your pages and all of your comments so that you don’t have to go through all that manually. 

Not only does this remove the SPAM from your website, which is always a good thing, this will also reduce the size of your database leading to faster website loading times.
