Akismet marking posts as spam comments!

  • Akismet is marking posts as spam comments! What is wrong? If I approve them then they show in my “Recent Comments” widget but not in the actual post as a comment.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Are these trackbacks by any chance?

    How can I check?

    Also one of the posts I just did and it was immediately in my spam folder

    Are they just links back to your own posts?

    Not quite sure what you mean. There are links in the posts to some of the contents on my pages. The posts (comments now) appear to be from me

    You know what I just noticed in setting that it now says that my api key is invalid. Is that the problem? I don’t know why all of a sudden it is invalid.

    They are not true comments but trackbacks from your own posts where you have linked to one post in another.

    Yes that is true that I have some links from one post to another post. What if anything should I do about it. Is there a way to stop this?

    Is it ok to just delete the comments marked as spam?

    I don’t feel very good about it being flagged as spam by this plugin because it is good and helpful stuff for diabetics. Or is being flagged have nothing to do with content?

    You don’t have to do anything about self-trackbacks. Just make them as “not spam” and then delete them. Akismet will learn after a while.

    Thank you, this is very helpful to know
