Spam and WordPress – I need your help

passion

This is going to be a short post, but a very important one. I have been focusing on search engine optimization, and I have written about wordpress page vs post for SEO success. But, I have been receiving a lot of spam in my comments the past 30 days or so. It seems to be increasing every single day. At the moment, I am using CommentLuv Premium (fighting spam with GASP), and it might be something with my settings. But, so far, I feel like spam is out-of-control.

What I have been thinking about, is to start using a different commenting system, like:

  • Disqus
  • Livefyre
  • IntenseDebate
  • Triberr
  • Google+ comments
  • Facebook comments

I have been testing Google+ comments on my blog, and I have never had any problems with spam on Google+. On the other hand, I don’t want my readers to have to have an account with Google+ in order to comment.

I have also been thinking about installing a new plugin to help me fight the problem with spam, but so far, I haven’t found the solution.

What’s your thought on this? Do you have the same problem, if not, how are you dealing with it?
