    Hallo, I have got 3k spam comments piled up in my wordpress website waiting to get approved or deletd.
    I was wondering if approving and publishing all that spam (3500 comments) could affect my traffic in some positive way.

    Am I mad?
    What do you think about it?

    Approving new comments as they come in would make bot users think your blog is auto-approve. They'd then come back and try and post on your blog repeatedly.

    This would increase traffic, but the traffic would be completely worthless.

    If you're asking whether the actual content in the comments would make your site rank better, then no. Most of those spam comments are posted on other sites as well, and you could get your pages punished for duplicate contents.

    Really sounds like you are desperate for content. And, spam content is never good content. So just delete the spam comments and hire someone to guest post or post blog comments. You can literally get blog commenting for pennies at some short task sites. Just hire a reputable blog comment poster (for your blog) and ask for samples of previous work.

    it will bring traffic but this traffic would do no good to your website, as you might get punished for the content that is being duplicated. so all in all it is not beneficial for your website.

    I removed the possibility of commenting my Wordpress blog cause all I got was only spam which was not only worthless but also scared away the readers cause the page than looked really messy.

    If you don't need comments, then removing the comment section is a great idea. Comments work great if you're going to use them to engage your visitors or start discussions. However, if you're just looking to make your site look active then like many have already said, it will most likely sink you.

    Just see in your view. Spam comments will be posted on those sites that are of low quality. Just as Jackson said above, I think you're desperate for content.

    Delete them immediately, that is a horrible way to get traffic, you will KILL your bounce % and your page will be worthless in googles eyes because of all the crap duplicate comments.

    Creating content is a challenge for sure, but this could be the most
    important part of your process. Dragon NaturallySpeaking has been
    mentioned here before as a tool that can save a great deal of time
    when it comes to content creation, learning it myself these days.
