Blog comment moderation — fighting comment spam bots

If you get a comment that sounds meaningful when isolated, but when placed in context of your blog post doesn’t seem quite right or informative, do a search for exact phrase from that comment. Many automated bots post ‘meaningful’ general comments. If the same comment is already indexed by search engine somewhere else, its a SPAM. Delete it.

    That’s a really good tip. I never thought of searching comments before. Those darn spammers are getting better at making it less obvious. Fortunately I have multiple sites, so its easy for me to see if someone’s left a duplicate comment. I also delete anybody with keywords as a name pretty much immediately. It makes you want to not be a do-follow blog sometimes.
