New year planning, stop spamming comments

I just popped on here to post about planning for the new year in your business. As I logged on I noticed I had a comment to moderate. I love getting comments because like most bloggers, I don't get many. So imagine my frustration, it won't be hard, when it was a huge spam comment full of links and targeted text, with no connection to the post it was commenting on.

I've been doing SEO for quite a while now and I understand the reason behind the tactics, but this is 2009, nearly 2010, and spamming comments is so 1999!

So if there's one thing I'd advise as planning for 2010, if this type of SEO work was in your plan ditch it and start again. I love comments on my blog, but this kind just get deleted. The spammer wasted their time and mine, a net loss of effort.

Sorry for the rant, Merry Christmas.

  1. This is my biggest annoyance at the moment. I only seem to get spam on posts that have comments on them as well. Then I get really excited only to discover it's a load of rubbish with a link in it.
