How to Stop Spam comments on Blog

My 3 sites are hosted on Digital Ocean. Bunny CDN, Cloudflare DNS (Status: Paused).

Target Audience is from India, Not using any security Plugin. Using (keyy) For Login.

I am getting a lot of Spam Comments every day on the sites. Please tell me how to stop those comments.

Can’t remove comments because I get lot of traffic from the keywords in the comment section. Already Limited the numbers of the links in the comment.

I Just want to block the ip address of those spam comments. recommended me a plugin (free or paid) for blocking those ip address.

When I moved from Siteground to Digital Ocean, The Clodflare status is paused. @GulshanKumar Should I activate it now.

I don’t know, Gulshan did that. He helped me move from SG to Digital Ocean.

The Server Location is bangalore and the traffic is from India only.

Ok let me break this down for you into simple pieces! there are three problems that you need to fix:

  1. Disable Trackback & Pingback
  2. Disable Attempt to notify other blogs
  3. Enable spam moderation using Akismet

Done all the three things already.

Hello there…

It’s perfect.

  • Are you getting spam comment by with particular unique keyword?
  • Login to WordPress Dashboard > Go to Discussion > Comment Blacklist > Enter those keywords.
  • Most of the time, spam comment comes only for link. Therefore, it’s better to put all those comment with link in the trash.
  • For example, you may blacklist these footprint of spam comment.

Yes, Most of the comments are with Spam Keywords like Casino, gambling.

Okay, I will Blacklist all these words.

Should I enable Cloudflare or Keep is Paused.

We have disabled it because as per Target audience. In India, Cloudflare performance is not always up to mark. Sometime, it has been seen even slower than the origin server. The way it works, I wouldn’t recommend for the Indian audience.

Before blocking, make sure to review each words. Some commonly used word may not be suitable as per your blog niche.

“One word or url per line”

some of the sentences you gave above have multiple words?

We can have a sentence also. Here is one example. As expected, the spam comment is automatically in the Trash.
