My goodness… I had no idea that this little blog would get so much comment spam! I’ve been looking through all the comments that this blog as received recently, and I would say that a good 90% of all the comments that get submitted to this site is obvious comment spam. Here are some reasons why you should stop spamming my comments section
1) It Won’t Get Approved – Now I don’t mind if you make a genuine comment about a post and attach a link to your website, but If you’re blatantly spamming my comments section I’m just not going to approve it.
2) It’s a Waste of Time -I actually read through the comments that are submitted and I approve only the comments that I feel are generated by a real person, and are relevant to the post. If your comment doesn’t meet that criteria, it won’t ever see the light of day. Which means that posting it is a waste of your time and reading it is a waste of mine.
3) It Won’t Help in SEO – All of my external links in the comments section are automatically external nofollow links. I’m no SEO guru or anything, but I’m pretty sure this means that if you’re trying to squeeze some link juice out of the page, it’s not going to be effective.
Well, Sorry for being so sour, but that’s my rant for the day.
