    I've been using WordPress 3.5.1 on my blog. I usually get 5 comments on average in a week. Only too little spam comments appeared on my blog. But, past week I'm receiving nearly 30 spam comments per a day.
    Here's a screen shot of it:

    I need your help me get out of this issue. How can I prevent spam comments on my blog.

    Thanks.

    Try activating Akismet and installing http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cookies-for-comments/

    I see you're already using Akismet.
    You could use some kind of captcha for your comments. For example Captcha plugin for protecting login, registration, password recovery, comments forms.
