    I am getting a rash of comments on one of my blogs that link back to facebook profiles. No links in the comments, they don't appear to be spam but some days I get more comments like this than google analytics says I had visitors (it's a new site without much traffic yet)

    Based on that I have been assuming they are spam but do not see the benefit, the only link goes to a facebook profile. Worth noting every profile I have looked as has their privacy settings locked down tight enough that I can't determine if they are real or not.

    Probably testing the water first to see if you'll approve the comments. But once you approved, expect to be in their auto approve list and spammed continuously.

    yeah i had a few of these, i've been getting tons with bloody air jordan links. One of the comments even said my article was the worst he'd ever read, although 10 minutes later there was another that it was the best he'd ever read, and was going to recommend it to everyone on the web. The article only had a title.

    The end of last week I accepted a few, today I was blasted... I am guessing I can keep marking this as spam forever and never come off the list?

    It sounds like spam.
