Receiving comments meant for random fashion website

  • I have recently been receiving comments on my posts that have no relationship to the content I have submitted. At first I thought that they were just random prank comments but on further investigation they seem to be meant for a fashion website. They are from different users but all relate to similar content. I have put the IP addresses in the comments blacklist but is there any way to solve this issue?

  • Without seeing any of them, it sounds like you’re being targeted for comment SPAM.

    There’s a few good plugins to combat this. Akismet is the most widely known, so that’s a very good first step. I’ve also heard good things about Cookies For Comments but I haven’t used that before.

    Thanks catacaustic, I have activated Akismet, fingers crossed.
