I know this is weird, but I love spam comments on my blog. Every couple of days, I go through my spam filter on my website to make sure that a real comment hasn’t been caught up in there, which has happened on about a half dozen or so times in the last few months.
Reading some of the spam comments, especially the absurd ones, has become somewhat of a recent obsession.
For those of you reading that aren’t bloggers or tech people, the reason that spam comments exist in the first place it to try to drive traffic to their websites. I am no expert at all in the ways of tech, but apparently they hope that if their comments get through your spam filter (I use Akismet, which has been great for me), then they will get some impact on search engines from having placed their links and keywords on your website.
I get about 100-150 spam comments in my folder every day. These are some of my recent favorites.
Sorry that these might not be that easy to read, but did the best I could with my screen capture program and some basic editing. You can click on each one to get a better, larger view, which should make them easier to read and I have linked the posts they were trying to spam comment on underneath each post.
