The biggest problem in blogging is that there are millions of spammers just waiting to attack a blog with bad back links, if Google finds that comments on your blog contain bad back links it will start hiding your blog from the public. ” Oh no how can i protect my blog from spammers? ” firstly no need to panic because we will save you and explain step by step how to stop bad guys to get on your blog !
problem #1 : comment system
Officially when you get a new theme or a new version of WordPress its already pre-installs a comments system for you ” which is bad,” you may ask “how can i fix that or get a new comment system. ” We already discussed a different comment system for WordPress Jetpack comments system ” which is also made by WordPress but its more secure, so check out the review and how to on Jetpack ” we also use it on our blog. ”
Problem #2 : you don’t have an anti-protector against spam
Beside comments you need more protection and the best way to protect your blog against spammers is a anti-virus against theme, just like on a computer you may now think ” what is the best anti-virus for my blog ” and we have only one recommendation for you and its akismet its a really easy plugin to install, you just download/install and activate it and it does the rest by it self .
As you see those are the two main problems that new bloggers face with the comments on there blog, but when you look at the solution you can see that its actually really easy to fix. Hope we help you!
