    Why do people feel the need to ruin a good thing? I had a perfectly good arrangement going with a blog where I was able to post comments and add a link to any of my relevant pages...the last 2 days some jackass has been posting spam and links to products not even related and now the blog posting feature has been turned off by the blog admin. I wrote a hub about this little gem of a marketing method and now I find that this may quickly become obsolete because of a few morons. sorry for the rant but just to let everyone know if you use my tips for using blogs to get traffic, PLEASE DO NOT SPAM. This just ruins it for everyone else

      The blog owner needs to moderate comments and treat spam and genuine comments separately. Simply stopping everyone to comment makes no sense.

    sorry this happened to you..

    unfortunately I've noticed that most spammers are not actually hub members. That's one thing you can't really escape from.. spammers.. sad

      Agreed. The more involved you get and the more properties you have out there the more peripheral issues you'll have to deal with.

      It's always an opportunity. In the same circumstance, I usually find myself bumping into something better.

    Any blogger that doesn't have moderated comments is just asking for this to happen.

        if you are giving comments with unrelevent matters and links, putting links forums or any other place without its requirement then its cal spamming. It is basically used for promoting anything anyhow. but that is not a right way. Some guidelines are used for it.

        It is possible to spam on forums, blogs and social communities. irrelevant ads, comments and meaningless post qualifies for spam. Oh well, let's get back to topic.

    Ensuring that all comments are screened, rather than being immediately published, is always a wise option in my opinion.  I've used this method for years on my blog, and also since writing here on HubPages.  Reading through the screened comments only takes a minute, and it silences cyber-pests.

    I set up a niche article directory site last year, and I've basically had to abandon the whole site because for every geneuine submission I was getting there were 50 odd spam submissions completely unrelated to the topic of the site, and I just didn't have time to wade through an ocean of spam to find the genuine ones. It really annoyed me that that basically killed off the whole site for nothing - all submissions were reviewed before publication and I never published any of the spam, so they got nothing out of it.

      Actually I kind of like spam, especially with a little mustard.  Oh, sorry, thought this was a food forum.  My bad!

    Sorry for the rant, it just pissed me off for a minute. The blog owner is working on a system to prevent the issue and re-open to comments. Real Moderation isn't an option because the blog in question gets 1000's of hits daily and dozens of comments. He is looking into some ways to catch spam posts. I hope it gets fixed because it helped my traffic immensely and I encourage anyone to use this method in a tasteful and helpful way.
