How to reduce SPAM comments on your blog posts

 Tired of getting Anonymous comments on your blog posts?
I used to get almost a hundred of them daily.
Sometimes its hilarious reading the weird non -related comments but most of the time it gets on my nerves.
So,i switched to disqus commenting system.
Even though the spams don't get published on Disqus i still get the email notification and it gets sooooo tired deleting them.
Anyway, i'm no tech wiz but i recently did some digging around and made random changes on my blog settings to reduce the spams and it helped a lottttt!!!

Now ,i get like 1 spam comment in a day!!! <3
So i wanted to share with my friends who use Blogger.com as their platform.

OPEN YOUR DASHBOARD AND GO TO "settings"

CLICK ON "POSTS AND COMMENTS"
and check if you have opted for "ANYONE" on the "Who can comment" section

CHANGE THAT TO "only members of this blog"
or "registrerd user"
or anything else other than "ANYONE"
SAVE THE SETTING.
I cannot guarantee that it will work for everyone.
But it worked for me and it might work for you too.
There is no harm in trying it out.

Hope it helps.

  1. the only trouble is a lot of people become members or start commenting with a valid id - but leave weird comments or comments with links to various websites

  2. i don't know about that...so far i haven't faced such an issue...
    at the most, my readers leave their blog links but i don't mind that.
