Comments That look Real but are Spam Comments

Posted in: ,

I could also title this post the scourge of the anonymous, but the truth is that sometimes, these spammers come and register blogger profiles, or they fill in a name with their link. But whether they come as Anonymous or as "seemingly" real comments, I'm writing this post to share with you guys how to recognise them and keep them as far away from your commenting section as possible.

So how do you know if the comments on your blog are spam? Obviously if someone post content that's not related to what you posted about, you can consider it as spam. Such comments as "Great Info! I Love it!! Will be back later to read some more. Can I add you to my Xanga group?" may not be unrelated, and will even stroke your ego as a blogger, but it is spam.

Some of the spam comments I just deleted are below

I have read so many articles on the topic of the blogger lovers but this post is actually a fastidious piece of writing, keep it up. Stop by my page ... http://....member.php?u=253649 on

My family members all the time say that I am wasting my time here at web, but I know I am getting familiarity every day by reading thes fastidious posts. Here is my web page Zynga Poker Cheats

Chinese will require at least a year to be functional in speaking thanks to its' simple grammar and many homophones.

To tell you truth, sometimes it makes me want to pull my hair out cos I get so much, up to 30 spam comments some days, other times, it makes me want to block the anonymous comment function. But that won't solve my problem, rather it will chase away some of my regular readers who may want to leave a comment without registering.

Now these are tips to bear in mind when approving comments in your queue, or even reading through some published comments on your blog.

1. If the profile is linked, clicked over to get a look at the profile of the commenter. Usually the profile picture or a link on their page will give them away as a link you don't want to promote on your blog. Sometimes, I block such people completely.

2. Check the link they left in the comment. If its something like tantric ertoica, or something like that, delete and don't look back.

3. What language is it? If it is not English, don't bother asking them to translate, hit delete.

4. Is it over complimentary without actually referring to anything in particular about your post? It wasn't meant for you, I'm afraid.

5. Links, Links, and more Links to Casinos, Poker, etc? Check that link and if necessary spam it so Blogger or wordpress knows not to ever publish it.

Hope this helps someon. If you think I overlooked something, please share so we can learn together.


  1. Awesome info!
    Do you know you can make $10000000 a day from the comfort of your home? Inbox me for details.

    Hehehehe. Sorry, Myne. I couldn't help myself

    1. LOL!!!

      These are real links to real blogs :p

      @Myne: I moderate all comments, including anonymous ones.

    2. That is so funny, I will inbox you :)

  2. I believe the key is not to click those links at all.I wasnt moderating comments initially I had to because those spam comment were too many..just too many! If you click on them they affect your computer and your system so please do not publish their comments or click on them the key to knowing them is they often say off topic or say i got here from stumbleuppon or you put up a video and they say ohh great points I have been looking for this Info for so long i paid so much for it huh lik seriously?? I hope Blogger does something about them sites really..Thanks for talking about this as so many bloggers may not be aware about this..

    To digress Myne hmmm myne hmmm myne..ehen hen how many times did i call you?? you put chair for our yansh you come remove am again with full force abi?? you know what am saying ohhh you come raise our hope abi??

    1. That is true, some of those links are dangerous! Most times I don't bother clicking too.

      As for the chair I removed, pele, dear.

  3. Lol @ pulling your hair out..... those comments drive me crazy too, i can imagine how many of those comments you get, i am honestly thinking of removing the anonymous button all together..ha!

    1. I think about that too, but it really won't solve the problem.

  4. You are the best writer, check out my webpage tights,

  5. I get all kinds of spam messages, I don't even bother clicking on their links, I just delete immediatly. But isn't there anything one can do to stop receiving this? This one jus came in now!

    Sharing some thing is better than keeping

    1. There's nothing you can do, just delete them often and blogger will know to spam them if they come in again.

  6. I get LOADs too! I thought it was a Blogger issue but the same happens with Wordpress.


  7. Aaah! Spam commenting, one of the things that made me run from blogger. The one I usually got was 'such great content, it's a wonder that bloggers like you are so hidden...." yadi yadi ya and then they digress to the most random thing like, click this link to find out about cooking oil

    1.'re right, most of them can't hide their off-topic :)

  8. What's wrong with tantric erotica?

    My attempt at spam.

    1. You'll soon find out if you click the link, please don't o, LOL...

  9. Hi Myne:
    I can relate to all those "spammy" comments (some even identical, some with even curse words) that have been left on my blog in the past. The problem for me was that such comments were left with a lot of broken links/bad links on my site that began interfering with my site's SEO. One by one I had to remove the comments/links to clean up my page. I resorted to disabling the anonymous option.

    1. Wow, I never considered that they may be affecting my SEO, will have to look into that.

    Deliver me from SPAM, Myne! :(

    1. LOL...anyone that can solve the problem of spam will be a millionaire, lol...

  11. Oh...the scourge of blogging. Thankfully blogger picks up most of them and I moderate comments on posts over 7 days old so they rarely show up.

    When they do I can still delete them via my phone even if I'm not online.

  13. I drop a comment whenever I appreciate a article on a blog or I have something to
    valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it's caused by the fire displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post "Comments That look Real but are Spam Comments". I was moved enough to post a leave a responsea response :-P I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
    Is it just me or do a few of these comments appear like written by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list all of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.

    my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site
    when you could be giving us something informative
