Blog Spam Comments

This is a general question as I am curious. My blog gets about 50 spam comments per day. They do not particularly bother me as ASKISMET seems to grab them and put them in the the spam folder. What I am curious about is how are these comments being entered in the first place as my Clicky stats show none of this traffic. Somehow it is getting auto posted without even coming to my site? Any ideas?

Bots often don't execute Javascript or download images (the 2 methods Clicky uses to track users). It's also possible that the bots are just hitting a POST URL on your site to post the comments. Are you using built-in Wordpress commenting or a plugin like Disqus?

Get a plugin like "Cookies for Comments" to reduce this problem.

I use GASP for bots, it keeps all the bots away and all the spam that does come through is made by real people leaving spammy comments

As the tempareture inceasing hot day after day, and the step of summer vocation is just around the corner, what plan do you made for your vivid summer?Swimming in the sea and hang about in the sand beach is a common plan year by year and one by one. Maybe you can travel around the ice island or going to an icy palace to enjoy with all your heart with different scenery. Or you can stay at home to participate in Diablo III. It is very popular at the moment and Diablo series is a legend. What do you think about? [b][url=]Buy Diablo 3 Gold[/url][/b]
