    The last 3 days i've been recieving alot of spam comments, ex. "get more likes at x website", "2000 likes instant" etc... So far i've deleted them, but i've been thinking and maybe those comments contribute to more visibility on hashtags?

    What do you guys think? Do you delete spam comments, or just leave them be?

    One or two span comments on a photo from a spam account wont make any difference in hashtag visibility. I delete them as it looks like you don't care at all about your account and who comments if you leave them.

    If you can, you should remove them to be honest. No point in having spam comments on your posts in my opinion.

    For me, You should remove the Spam Comments will be the right way. You can use this plugin "Akismet" to kill the spam.

    Just remove it. It discourages real people to comment to

    Great, I'll take this advice and delete the spam. If anyone knows an efficient way to remove the comments (i get probably 30 a day) it would be highly appriciated!

    I don't know about that. But if you are building an authority page, get a phone logged them all (assuming around 3 accounts) and delete.

    There is no point in keeping spam comments, always remove them. If you want more visibility, you can always post more comments yourself with your other accounts, which you can totally control and don't look like spam.

    Yeah remove them, it'll be better since you'll look more legit and such, fast way to delete them is using a mobile and tapping every bad comment and at the end delete them using the top right button

    Remove them. They are like bumper stickers. If you don't like Trump, you wouldn't go driving around with a "Make America Great Again" sticker on your car.

    Apart from the above, people will think you relate to spammers because your account has spam comments. The old "tell me who you're with, and I'll tell you who you are".
