    Isn`t Inviting Comments Inviting Trouble? - Inviting Spam


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Spambots work in a way thatís similar to search engines. Mechanically, they laboriously scour Web sites looking for certain particulars. When these features are found on pages, spambots go to work. They find archived content on your site, and they place comments that are little more than text nonsense -- long links and random letters. Before you know it, your content is filled with comments that are hardly readable.

    In other words, before you know it, your content is filled with spam. That comment button can be a ticking time bomb on your site, a way for spammers to enter and take root inside your archived pieces. In many cases, spambots will target the content thatís already archived. This only makes your job of rooting out the spam that much harder, because now you have to search through a backlog of content that hasnít been new or fresh for many weeks.

    You may have put the comments feature in place for your users, but itís a privilege that will undoubtedly be violated by spammers and spambots. This creates extra work for you (now, youíll have to invoke new politics and tools to reduce the comment spam) and totally defeats your purpose of creating a user-friendly area for your traffic to exchange thoughts and opinions.

    It takes a lot of effort to reduce the amount of comment spam you get, freeing up this feature for your ďrealĒ traffic to use. When youíre inviting comments on your site, youíre also inviting spam. For many, itís a deal breaker.
