    I started new blog for the last two months with weight loss niche and it has only 4 posts but it is getting many comments, is this normal? See screenshot below.
    Another question, how can I make money off this blog as it is still new?

    Niche is weight loss which is one of the top niche to discuss.
    So I would say that you articles are good that is why it is getting comments on loads.

    It's totally normal. Those comments are just spam and totally useless, use Akismet plugin to to get rid of them.

    Many people use Google Alert to spam the newly created blog.

    Weight loss is very popular so I do not think that this is not normal. Congrats to you on this.

    These are spamming comments, mate. Anyways, we are on the same street. I use Disqus for my site to avoid such spam comments.

    Disqus is a good commenting platform. And yes OP, those are all spam comments made by bots.

    Weight loss is a HUGE niche, so you can expect tons of SPAM comments.

    Those are spam comments, I would remove them. And install a anti-spam plugin.
