[resolved] Spam search terms? (4 posts)

    Not a bug in Search Meter, just wondering if people are seeing similar behavior.

    I get (according to Search Meter) tons of searches for domain name plus the word tools (these are from my last 30 days list):

    There are many more, but this is a good sample. Only a few of those terms make any sense on my blog - what are all the "tools" ones about?

    Is this some kind of attempt to generate spam?

    Yes, this is most likely spam-related. Interesting to see what spambots get up to, isn't it? :)

    hi john,
    wp book is a pretty good plugin, but there was some sort of spamming in my website. Today i saw that comments from unknown facebook users were posted in my blog, well i have marked those comments as spam but isn't there any plugin for wp book like a captcha so that there would be least spamming? or a plugin such that no one would be able to comment on my posts using facebook unless i have approved them?......please help me out..

    Hi Bennett,

    As interesting as spambots are, they've rendered our Search Meter results useless. All the results are spam.

    Any suggestions?

    Making the web work for you, Alec
