    So basically I`m getting spam comments on my blog with their links casinos, weight loss and shit. Should I approve them do they have any benefit for my blog? backlinks or something? I just wanna know if there are any benefits allowing them to comment.

    They have zero benefit to you. But please approve them, I need more backlinks. :D

    how the hell you've been a member of this community and made 150+ quality posts without a knowledge of "backlink" and spam. I'm sorry, if you're a total newbie or if that's your first wordpress blog.

    There is no benefit if they are coming to drop links only. You can stop comments in wordpress blogs by automatically closing comments for posts older than X days, where X can be any number you want. It can be done in your WP admin->Settings->Discussion

    well, I have got a great solution for you. Approve the comments but without any link on it, and remove some certain words inside the content if you do not wish to have them in.

    this way you will have more fresh content :D hehehe

    Make sure you have Akismet running and most of these will be handled automatically. Most of my blogs get 100+ of these a day, and only 1 or 2 go through Akismet and have to be manually vetted.

    If the comment is well written and relevant but the link is to something shitty, I approve the comment but remove the link. If the link is relevant and the comment well written, I leave it.

    Yes, let me just add that it is ok to raise questions about things like this...I don't see the point in flaming someone for asking a question (unless it is completely stupid), just move along without making a comment. I've learned a lot by asking stupid questions, and even though there are always haters, many members, especially the more senior members, are nice enough to help people out. Keep asking and ignore the haters...good luck with the blog.

    google 101 - if your site links out to spam sites, you'll be penalized. this is well known since google invented their search engine.
