Real vs Spam Comments

Took a little time to review a handful of seemingly intereted and complimentary comments on my blog. Thought it would be interesting to see who was writing such nice things.

Found most of them to be SPAM, mainly from the US. Brickmakers, Life Coaches, Purveyors of Pornography, Basketball and other salespeople all wrote positive things, but were presumably just seeking to optimise their own websites.

How sad, never mind, I’ll keep plugging on!!

  1. Just curious: Where do you draw the line? Clearly, a vague comment like, “Interesting post,” that links to a mortgage website is spam, but what about a comment that comments specifically on something you said? I’ve had a few of those, and, honestly, I can’t decide how to handle them.

    1. Hi, thanks. My view is to take the long term view. I would rather have genuine comments from people who have some link with what I am writing about or want to read. Having the sorts of comments I have now deleted does build up an impression of an interested audience, but they are no more than leeches on the back of our efforts.

  2. Hi Debbie
    Thanks for your kind comment. I have had a quick look at your website. I will be back to it to take a leisurely stroll around as what you are doing looks & sounds fantastic.
