Comment spam is annoying!

You get a notification that the post you put a lot of thoughts and efforts into writing got a comment – and you become elated.

Someone’s actually noticing and talking about the wisdom you share, you thought.

You quickly load up the comment and find it’s one thoughtless string of words posted by one little dumb spammer trying to get cheap backlinks or traffic from your blog – and your heart sinks.

You begin to wonder what you’re doing wrong.

Is this all you truly deserve for your hardwork? Is this all your post can attract? Or don’t they say birds of a feather flock together?

You’re confused. You’re sad.

I get it.

But you don’t have to be.

Comment spam isn’t what you deserve. And it’s not even anything personal against you.

It’s a problem everyone who has a blog faces.

A comment spam is an irrelevant or unsolicited comment on a blog post. It adds no value to the post and may contain advertising or links to other sites – and all blogs open to comments do get them.

Sometimes, they’re easy to identify. Other times, the spammer is a bit smarter and tries to come off as legitimate.

Either way, comment spam harms your blog in many ways: lower search engine ranking, terrible user experience and loss of reputation.

The good news is: it’s easy to effectively combat spam comment once you truly understand the various forms it takes and how it impacts your blog.

And that’s exactly what this infographic presents.
