    For some reason for the last couple of months this site is spamming me and I cannot ban it. I have added and to my host names, but WP-Ban does not seem to ban them. can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?


    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Akismet does catch it as spam but I’d like to ban it altogether. Any help would be appreciated.

  • I believe I have figured this spammer out. I correlated my Akismet spam entry with my raw access log and found out the spammer uses one ip address to GET and a second ip address to PUT. Akismet publishes the PUT ip address, which is constantly changing. I put the PUT ip address into wp-ban manager and of course, the spam kept coming. For some reason wp-ban also does not work when banning the site name.

    Anyway, this spammer is using the ip address to GET and a number of ip adresses, such as and to PUT. I have banned the GET ip address and hopefully this will work.

    I’ve been getting hit by this spammer too, although on my WP site they’re hitting a feedback form on a static page. I blocked the IP address you listed and got immediate results. Now I guess we just wait to see if that’s their main spam pipeline or just a branch off of it.
