What is a Comment?

A comment is especially feedback from the visitor about your post on your website. A good comment always encourages you to write more on that topic.

A comment is a written or spoken remark or statement made in response to an article, blog post, or other types of content on the internet. Comments are often used to provide feedback, express opinions, or engage in conversation with the author or other readers of the content.

Comments can be found on websites, social media platforms, discussion forums, and many other types of online content. They allow users to participate in a dialogue and engage with others who have an interest in the same topic.

Comments can range from short, one-line remarks to longer, more detailed responses. They can be positive or negative and can express agreement, disagreement, or a range of other emotions or opinions. Some websites and platforms have rules and guidelines for comments and may limit the types of content that can be posted.

In general, comments are a valuable tool for fostering discussion and community on the internet. They allow people to share their perspectives and engage with others and can help to enrich the online experience for all users.

What is Spam Comment?

A spam comment is a type of comment which contains unnecessary links or malicious links. Some competitor or other bot traffic put suspicious links on their comment on your posts.

Comment spam refers to posting irrelevant, meaningless, or unsolicited comments on websites, forums, blogs, or other online platforms to promote a product, service, or website.

How to Deal with Comment Spam?

It is really a headache to deal with spam comments. Sometimes you can find thousands of spam comments every day, and it takes time to delete all those daily.

These comments are usually posted by automated software programs known as “spambots” and can have a negative impact on the quality of user experience on a website.

Comment spam can be a nuisance for website owners and users, as it can clog up comment sections and make it difficult to find legitimate comments. It can also harm the reputation of a website by making it appear spammy or untrustworthy.

To combat comment spam, website owners can implement anti-spam measures, such as using CAPTCHA technology to confirm that comments are being posted by real humans, using moderation tools to review and approve comments before they are published, or using anti-spam plugins or software to automatically detect and filter out spam comments.

Users can also help prevent comment spam by being vigilant and reporting any suspicious comments they come across. They can also take steps to protect their own online accounts by using strong passwords, enabling two-factor authentication, and being cautious when clicking on links in comments or emails.

How to stop WordPress comment spam?

Removing the website link box from the comment box will help you to block spam comments up to 90%. You may notice that we have removed this box on this blog.

In order to do that just put a code at the end in the Theme’s functions.php file.

add_filter('comment_form_field_url', '__return_false');
add_filter('comment-form-cookies-consent', '__return_false');

Restrict comment privileges to registered users only

Use this option if you want to allow the registered users only to allow them to comment. To do that follow this instruction:-

Go to Setting ->> Discussion ->> Other comment settings ->>
Tick the Box – ☑️ Users must be registered and logged in to comment

Use Comment Moderation

Put some words there, that you think as spam. When a comment contains any of those words in its content, author name, URL, email, IP address, or browser’s user agent string, it will be held in the moderation queue.
