Here is what my admin panel tells me – “Akismet has protected your site from 26,240 spam comments.” That’s pretty good. Since I began using Akismet, very few blog spam comments have slipped through and very few legitimate comments have been caught as spam.
Lately, as in the past few days, I have been receiving about 10-15 spam comments per day. These comments have slipped through the Akismet filter and have shown as legitimate comments. This strikes me as odd. Have these people found a new technique?
On a side note…any recent blog program uses the rel=”nofollow” tag for any link placed in a comment. It’s my humble opinion that spamming blogs probably isn’t the best way to go, if you want to advertise your mega cluster of websites. Hey, I may be wrong.
