Spam blog posts comments? Annoying...1393

Member Genn133 private msg quote post Address this user
Setting up a blog posts on daily schedule I just stumbled on one issue - annoying spam.
In last few days I received over 10 comments on my blog which are nothing more than junk backlinks to some sites that have little to do with my product - fake watches, glasses, brand clothing (fake of course)..
It is coming from the same IP.

Anyone know how to block these comments or automatically move them to spam box ?

*********** Example *******
A new trackback on the post "QuickBooks 2015: The Missing Manual: The Official Intuit Guide to QuickBooks 2015 by Bonnie Biafore" is waiting for your approval

Isn't there a way you can approve responses and delete them so they won't post?

Blacklist the IP @Genn133, and set the links on your blog as No-Follows... this will discourage a lot from placing them to begin with.

Well, I marked them as spam and deleted.
But they are still coming... Frustrating. This jerk is persistent and creative.
Same IP.

It's likely you can blacklist the IP, all forum and profile links should be No-Follows. There are link engines out there that target and spam vulnerable forums.

Spam is good. If the spammers can't find you, nobody can.

But they quickly become annoying. Install a captcha.

Probably the easiest solution to this issue.

The basic Akismet WP plugin is probably worth checking out..

Oh, right.
Capture is implemented.
Thank you for your help.
I will let you know if this spam will come back

PS. Used this one - SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam

@Genn133

At least you can be sure that you are being found!

I have my comments boxes changed to FB comment boxes, it really helps getting rid of spam

Member Genn133 private msg quote post Address this user
Nope. Captcha did not help

This morning I have 2 more comments.

@lunar_ranger might need your assistance.

2 comments is better than 200, or 20... Captcha's are not 100%...
maybe try a different captcha.
