The reason why I ask is I have an adult blog that has been taking off in these past couple of months going from 0 hits a day to around 800 UVs a day within the span of 5 months and it has recently been bombarded with spam comments (like hundreds a week. damn you scrapebox LOL) Im on the verge of turning off comments instead of having to go through and delete these week after week. do comments help you in serps? I would say half of my traffic is organic at this point and half is from social media. If turning off comments wont hurt my organic traffic I want to do it.
