Its a fact that Comment spam is on the rise now a days. Used to be, spammers only targeted blogs that were specifically dofollow, meaning that the site had installed a plugin to remove the rel=”nofollow” attribute to comments giving the links more SEO value. But now, spammers, from humans to bots, are taking on any blog and blog topic for their evil purposes.
This is where Akismet comes to the rescue. It checks against a database to determine if a comment has any telltale spam markers and moves those comments to a dedicated spam folder for your review. This means you won’t get notified of as many pending comments that are actually spam.
While this plugin does reduce a great deal of spam, it also has a lot of “false positives” which means that legitimate comments end up in the spam filter as well. So get go with this plugin and grab your API key.
