Disqus spam: One way to identify

May 8th, 2009 by Laura Leave a reply »

I’ve found the niftiest way to identify spam comments on disqus that might otherwise slip through the cracks: Your referrer logs. The comments that are questionable of it they are spam or not, half the time the company or an individual searches for the title of the author with in about 6 hours of the comment being posted. So if you get a comment from Unsecured personal loans or something like that and a person searches “Unsecured personal loans” power by disqus, then the comment is probably spam.

If you’re a marketer and you don’t want your comments identified as spam while engaging in link building activities:

  • make sure your comments address the post that you’re replying to,
  • your comments are in reply to the newest post (rather than a comment three months old), and
  • that you don’t search yourself to find out if that link appears (and then click on the search link to verify).

    • Hmm... some clown out there is posting random nonsense comments to old posts of mine with links to his spam site. I get notifications and spem/delete them right away... but it is annoying they turn up as "approved" -- a system hack? GRRR...
