I noticed recently after starting to manage another brand that I have been getting SLAMMED with Spam. I literally have 870 comments, all of which are probably spam. Of course I have a filter to address this, however it is very annoying, stupid and very time consuming to address. Honestly, I really have never seen so much nonsense in my entire life. My thoughts are why would a person even bother, just to get a link?
The biggest question in my mind is , ” Wouldn’t it just be easier to build your own traffic?” This is especially the case since most people that blog have some kind of filter to block this kind of thing so the spam won’t even get approved. Take a look at the infographic below to get a view of The History of Spam.
