    I’ve found that I get a bunch of spam on my sites even if I am not using the keyword luv plugin. Although sites that use it do tend to get a bit more traffic.

    I think you have a point about KeywordLuv, how the increase of traffic is weighed against the increase in Spam. Although I’m more for where the comment actually benefits the post in anyway, unless its just random comments. What do you think?

      Yes, I definitely agree that it’s best to have comments that are actually part of a discussion, but I think SEO and spammers have really hurt discussion online. People are commenting just to get a backlink, not because they have something to add to the discussion. Spammers force bloggers to moderate their comments, and a lot of bloggers use moderating as a way of having the discussion they want to have (i.e., deleting negative comments), not the discussion that is actually taking place.

      To be clear, none of this really bothers me all that much. I realize it’s happening, and I think it’s interesting to observe and analyze, but I don’t get mad at people who write “Nice post!” just to get a backlink. I figure they’re just trying to make their own site more successful, and I can’t really get angry at someone for that when that’s what we’re trying to do as well.

      What do you think?

      I agree, on many of my articles I have lots of spam, but I tend to keep the ones which actually make a polite and worthwhile comment. For every 10 spams I try to keep at least half. I’m not too fond of the bots out there which seem to hammer blogs with backlinks.

    How are you finding keywordluv nowdays? The blogs I have running it are getting a lot of spam comments?

      It’s not too bad. I know a lot of bloggers have mixed feelings on using keywordluv because it will help you get more traffic, but you end up with more spam. Currently, we’re at a point where the benefit of increased traffic is worth having to deal with more spam.

      I think of keywordluv as a ‘you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours’ kind of arrangement, so I don’t get too bothered by spam comments. If someone posts 7 comments all saying ‘thanks’ and nothing more, then I’ll approve 1 or 2 but not all 7.

      What’s your strategy for dealing with spam comments? I’m actually really interested to hear other people’s opinions on keywordluv.
