We have a website (that I won't name in this post) and have a blog within the site so that we can quiclkly update what we have been doing.
We have a package for the software from 123, and the blog is part of the software package.
Each of our posts can receive 'comments'. Lately we are inundated by spam comments in HTML that contain numerous references to pharmaceuticals. Although we try to delete these spam comments on a daily basis, the result is that our Google ads on that page are often for parmaceutical products.
Although we would get the income from any clicks on those ads, the ad content is irrelevant to our site - and we really want ads that will interest our viewers.
Any ideas on how to prevent these spam comments?
I get thousands of those every month. You should be able to find a setting that lets you approve each comment before it shows. You also need to use a spam filter of some kind for your comments.
Wordpress is a great blogging software that lets you do all that. All my spam gets caught and thrown out without me even having to see it.

I just got a comment and instead of the usual Approve/Deny, I got Not Spam/Delete Forever. I went to the commenter's profile and he had no followers and only two hubs showing although the hub count was 30-something....

Been getting comments from people who are not hubbers (or at least aren't logged in as hubbers). They leave links back to their websites which are clearly on-topic. That tells me they're looking for hubs on the same...
