    If your site appears in google or any other search engine than spammers will start to submit fake comments on your site.

    You may install anti-spam plugin.

    It blocks spam in comments automatically and without captcha.

    There is no "one size fits all" method that will protect your comments; spammers use many tactics. Consider using multiple defenses. Remember spammers change the way they attack so you must keep your choices updated.

    sonny - are you using Akismet? That's the best first step for dealing with spam.

    Yes, that's a good question - you might want to make sure your site has not been hacked:
