Five Fishy Mistakes in Spam Comments

By Deborah Taylor-French

A pet blogger I keep in touch with posted a list of laughable spam and odd comments she receives in her spam folder.

Today, I share a few of the type I call

“I Wish These Comments Came From People”

“We completely adore your weblog and discover the majority of one’s post’s to become precisely what I am searching for. Do you provide guest writers to write content material to suit your needs? I would not mind composing a post or elaborating on a quantity of the subjects you write about here. Once more, amazing weblog!”

backlink… “Whats cheery vastly nice web site!! Guy .. Excellent .. Superb .. I will bookmark your internet position and acquire the feeds additionally…I’m joyful to attain numerous of use in order right here within the situate within the lead, we’d comparable…”

You don't say? Really?

Five Fishy Mistakes in Spam Comments

1. They have not taken one minute to read what I have written.

2. Their comment never mentions or responds to my post topics.

3. Their URL address usually does not lead to anywhere, except a dead-end.

4. If they have a Website, I never find an about page. Robot comments end up in my trash bin.

5. The word usage, grammar and overblown praise add up to weirdly written English.

In the beginning of writing my blog, I wrote emails to a few of the writers who seemed sincerely interested, but lacked a credible Website. No one answered.

From now on, I am saving my spam gems for laughs and later posts.

Oh, and my other blog, the one you cannot find gets written by my invisible foodie black dog.

  1. Hahaha makes me remember (with a cringe) how naive I was when I first started blogging not so long ago! A few of the comments I ‘allowed’, now I wish I’d kept more instead of deleting them and made a post like this one! Hilarious!

    1. Thanks Jackie. For reading, laughing and writing to me. You can start now, copy and paste all the stupid, weird and downright funny comments in your spam folder. I am pasting mine into a file to save for a day I need a few belly laughs. So glad these made you hehe haha.

  2. I think these comments are hilarious and laugh as I click spam. It used to bum me out when I started, because I’d get the notification that I had a comment then I’d read this gobbly-gook. Yuck!

    This is why I put my blog back on moderation – I don’t want these spammers getting one ounce of link juice from me. 🙂

  3. LOL! Thank goodness those spam comments are so easy to spot. Unfortunately, sometimes my legitimate commentors end up in spam so I still have to go through and either approve or delete permanently.

    1. I forgot to say that I did have many troubles at first with the spam catcher on WordPress. I shut off commenting on all posts older than three days, and that cut my false spam down to just a few per month.

  4. You haven’t gotten the mean spam yet, have you?There’s one out there that says they disagree with your topic and goes on to say you should have done more research. Ouch. It bruised my little ego. I do have to say I love the spam sorter that WordPress provides. It’s awesome.

    1. Actually, I have receive some of those critical “comment” spam. Who in the world would publish it on their blog? Maybe a blog entitled, “So What If My Writing Bums You Out?” or “I Never Said I Was A Great Writer, Just a Wanna Be.”
