In this article, we will talk about a very urgent problem, which sooner or later every webmaster faces. It is called "comment spam." Comment spam is a thing that needs to be dealt with as soon as you create your website. If you don't protect yourself from spam in time, it will lead to disastrous consequences.

What consequences you can expect

First of all, the main threat is getting search sanctions. This can happen because of spam bots that will try to post something with the help of comments in order to get backward links. And links can lead to any dubious sites, including the adult website. Such links can ruin almost any website easily and in a short time. Moreover, spam can spread a variety of malicious codes, and sometimes even viruses. Therefore, it is recommended to use Cleantalk plugin for spam protection of websites.

The sooner you understand this problem and install antispam protection on your WordPress blog, the faster you will save yourself from unnecessary headaches.

It is worth noting another essential nuance. Many people mistakenly believe that only popular resources need protection from spam. However, it doesn't matter for spam bots how popular your website/blog is. They only need your website to be indexed in search engines. Therefore, as soon as your website is indexed, spam bots will immediately become interested in it and start spamming it with comments.

The spread of spam can be done in 2 ways:

  1. manually
  2. automatically.

Manual spam is inherently harmless because its sizes are not very large, so you can easily cope with it using the so-called one-time or full moderation of all comments left, which can be enabled in the discussion settings in WordPress.

However, for auto spam, the volumes of which can be around 100+ spam comments per day, this method of struggle will not work. It is possible to go over and check all comments for span, but why should someone waste his or her time on it? The best way to protect yourself from this kind of spam is by using full automaton plugins.

Antispam service Cleantalk


The main features of Cleantalk:

  • There are no such ways of checking comments as introducing verification phrases, composing or selecting correct pictures, introducing a response to mathematical equations, etc. It has been experimentally proved that all such methods of spam filtering do their job, but reduce the total number of comments on the site, since visitors are lazy to solve puzzles, enter words from a picture, etc. But the presence of comments on the publication is an essential factor in its search promotion!
  • The service uses both constantly updated blacklists and behavioral factors of visitors, which makes it possible to filter comments better. And all this is invisible to visitors!
  • The service is able to protect all forms at once: comments, feedback, reviews.
