Spam is a blight on blogs. I like to think of spammers as vultures or seagulls hovering above the blogs looking for a tasty morsel that they can descend on and devour. In our case those tasty morsels are dofollow blogs as well as those using CommentLuv and KeyWordLuv. If you’re one of those bloggers who are being inundated with spam you should read on because you’re going to find this post really interesting.
It’s because spam has always been a pain is the ass that I’m always on the lookout to find stuff that will help me to control it. Heck, you ask almost any blogger and they’ll tell you how monitoring and deleting spam will take up a good portion of their blogging time.
In Search Of The Spam Busters
Akismet would have to be the first ever plugin I used to combat spamming and it is so good I have it in my spam busting arsenal. Unfortunately as good as it is, it’s not quite enough.

It’s because spammers are always on the lookout to circumvent whatever plugin you’re using that we have to thank people like Andy who are keeping track of their shenanigans by updating their plugins, speaking of which you should see what Andy has done to make CommentLuv Premium even better.
- Minimum amount of keyups on comment?: Let’s face it, spammers know that you’re not going to accept those “Great post” type comments anymore and so now preparing their comments before hand so they can copy and paste them directly into your comment form. I’m sure you’ve seen similar comments posted those blogs you’ve been reading? Well, the new updates have nipped that in the bud!
- Banned search terms: The updated version of CommentLuv Premium now lets you nominate those search terms that you want to ban so that users get notified before entering your blog that you will not tolerate
crappy spammy comments
Just watch the video to see how it works.
Did you notice the clickable banner on the top left of the video? How about the cover image I used? Notice how it’s the same image I used in the post.
