Comment Spam

89 Comments

Recently the spam issue started all over again (hence this repost)..akismet is doing a great job in filtering the spam comments and at the same time, they are filtering many of us too☹️

So get ready with all your weapons to fight against this…

——-

Do you have the habit of checking your spam folder frequently..?

If not, please go to your wordpress admin and check the spam comments..please don’t be surprised on seeing so many genuine comments caught by Akismet, the comment spam filter..

So first of all, access your admin area. It can be accessed by visiting the wp-admin directory in your web browser. Example: http://www.example.com/wp-admin/. Or click on the wordpress icon in mobile app, scroll down , and now take “View Admin”.

On entering your admin area, just take the comments where you can access your spam section.

Unspam the required ones.

After two or three times, naturally those comments from the same blogger will be unspammed by Akismet.

Please do this on a frequent mode so that you wont miss to read from your lovely readers..

Thinking why this post, now.. Atleast a few of you will be knowing the reason as I am one of your favorites in the spam folder…

  21. I really appreciate that you shared this info because most of us never check spam comments.
    A few months back i checked spam comments for the very first time and I was so astonished to see a lovely comment lying there.
    That comment is still the best one I have ever received for my blog. 😊

  31. Thank you. I “finally” found my way to what appears to be the spam folder and all the comments in there were NOT SPAM. What was even more surprising is that all the people who left comments were regular people whose comments I had been receiving normally until now. What a stupid system.

  32. My blog went down sometime back for two days as it was full of Spams. I didn’t know earlier but after a hell lot of pain and Google guidelines I know to check it regularly. Sometimes Spam folder catches dew words of our readers and put it in spam. 😄
