    Hi,

    I have a adult tube website, I am currently receiving a lot of Spam Registrations to my website.

    If I accept the members, will it affect my SEO rating in a good or a bad way if they make spam Blog Posts?

    Thanks for your time

    so, you have a tube site, but the members will make blog posts.. am i missing something in here?

    anyways, they will spam the hell out of your site, so you better close down registrations

    yes it will affect ur seo ratings upto great extend
    closing down member ship is not the solution
    however you can try implementing certain anti spam features like captcha
    if u have already installed that i believe you must have
    you can add security questions
    more security = less spam

    Thanks for the information, I was hovering over accept for a bit then thought I'd think about it, I'm definitely not accepting those guys!

    Don't accept those spam registrations. I once have a website and I accidentally accepted some spammy bots, and they posted nonsense topics.

    Is your CMS PHPMotion?

    Regardless I'd recommend removing all outside user blog posts. They will be heavily exploited (And I'd know, I'm the one exploiting them heavily).
