    I am a new WordPress user and I really wouldn't know what a hack attempt looks like. But I got a comment on one of my sites that seems to be a string of keywords or tags. There was an email address and a website address so probably not. But the wording on the website is so weird it's worst than someone trying to write an article in a foreign language. I know content comes from writers whose first language is not English but this is worse than bad. The website seems to be selling goose down jackets with no images. I just thought I should give a heads up just in case.

    Welcome to the world of SPAM.

    It's not a hack attempt. Hakcs do a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff. They don't come out in the open like that.

    What you have is your normal every-day SPAM'er that's got an automated program to sign up to your site, log in, and post comments or articles with comptuer-generated text so that they can get backlinks from your site to theirs to boost their own SEO. There's 1,000's of so-called SEO companies that rely on this sort of automated process to get back links for their customers.

    Mark the comment as SPAM, and if you are concerned, you can install Akismet or another anti-spam plugin to help keep things like this to a minimum.

    Remember that now they know that your site publishes heir links, they'll be coming back a whole lot more oftem to add in more and more links.

    Good to know. I did not link to the website through the link in the comment and I did hit the spam button. Didn't even try to go to the email. That is one bad computer language translation program. Kinds gave me the creeps.
    Thanks for the advise.
