    Getting blog comments on my WP MNS properties. Good sign they're starting to be found or just good spam bots?

    Hi,

    Well it depends on the type of comments that are getting left. It is quite obvious if a comment is genuine or not.

    Are you getting any traffic to the propertys through organic search?

    The comments are spam and just starting to get trickles of organic traffic.

    I delete the URLs of the non-spammy generic comments and allow them on my blog to make my site feel more "active."

    Probably it's spam.
    I receive a lot of such comments on my sites.
    Personally, if someone post a relevant comment I approve it but I always delete his website.

    It doesn't really mean anything except somebodys scrape box has found your site. I just turn off all comments etc for my sites now. It's not like I have the time or interest to moderate.

    I think it depends on you niche. One of my private blog sites got twatted with spam all the time until I turned off the comments option. It's a health/fitness niche site with a PR4, so quite popular for those looking for decent backlinks.

    With my other sites though I tend to keep them on. If you have a site which has an open comments or review section then remove the url, change the text to something more suitable and you've got yourself a relevant comment from a different IP.

    Sometimes the spam comments are good thing. I am receiving lots of spam comments on my blog so i can see what other people are promoting. That sometimes give me ideas what new niches i can promote. And i have already have the keyword research done by others.

    Something else you can use the spam comments for are if you take a portion of the comment, eg-

    "Something else you can use the spam comments"

    And then Scrape Google, you can usually find a ton of autoapprove blogs :p

    I keep comments open. When I get a spammed, I rewrite it & take out their url and maybe put my affiliate links in the rewritten comment.
