    I am noticing a comment made most days that Akismet is picking up as SPAM. I am deleting them all but wondered what the hell they are??

    The comment, below, seems to be a copy of the original post but with a link to an insurancesitesfind URL??

    Anyone else seen anything like this or know what it is.

    Thanks,

    That looks like a trackback ...

    It's blogspam. Somebody made a fake blog and has an auto-poster posting links to you. The blog package they're using, naturally, sends you a pingback. That appears in your blog like a comment.

    OK so, and bear in mind I am brand new to this, I should simply delete it then?

    Many thanks for your replies.
