When you create a blog, you begin receiving comments. Many of those comments are from people who are trying to use you, or your blog for their own gain. This is what I call SPAM. The following video shows you how to get rid of spam comments on your WordPress blog.

        Whether its temporary or penrnaemt remains to be seen but I hope its penrnaemt. Traffic here is running 3-5 times higher than the old blog (depending on which measurement I look at).

          Thanks for registering and ctemmnoing Ben! Good to see you, again.I saw Akismet in the plugins area. By using it, can I keep guest comments open and avoid most of the spam?

    Hey Grant,

    I normally use Akismet + CommentLuv (a premium plugin) but I think you can use the free version which is Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin (G.A.S.P.) both were made by the same person and it is a highly recommended combination to stop dealing with spam.

    Hope that helps as well.

      Hi Sergio,
      I use Akismet and it separates the spam messages. I just have to go in and tell it which ones are spam and which ones are not. Akismet’s guessing as to which is which doesn’t seem to be too good.

      I will check out the other plugins you mention when I get a chance.

      Thanks.

        Is this place permanent or tomperary? It doesn’t look like it’s picking up that much traffic. Your old blog was packed daily with comments.I miss your old blog, Mark :’ (
