WordPress Platform is widely known for its Powerful Plugins . Today I am sharing some WordPress Comments Plugins that don’t only reduces spam but also improves productivity . Trackbacks And Robots generated comments are the biggest problem of a self hosted wordpress blog owner. They spams like hell . Even I was suffering from them . I installed Akismet and disabled Trackbacks using .htacess and also used captcha with Comment Form . Resultant Trackbacks were gone but spamming comments were on the way.
But today I came to know about some other WordPress plugins which saved me from those spammed comments and brutual bots. So its time to Say Bye to Robots Generated Spam Comments on Your WordPress Blog With these Must have WordPress Plugins . I am sorry to those spammers who would hate me now more then before : D
GASP ( Growmap Anti-Spam Plugin )
That’s the plugin which solved my problems in the end . This plugin adds Box check rule to comment . Means you have to check or Tick Mark the box to post your comment . GSAP Plugin also can replace your annoying captcha plugin .So that plugin worth to install .
Comment Luv WordPress Plugin
I would say its the must install Plugin for every new Tech Blogger or to attract bloggers of similar niche to comment on your blog . It encourages your readers to comment on your articles as they get some link juice from their comment . This is one of my favorite plugin and one day I will surely buy its premium version ( Hope I will )
Akismet WordPress Plugin to Reduce Spam
Akismet is the well known plugin in WordPress Blogging . Whenever someone comments on your WordPress Blog , Akismet checks whether commenting person’s ip is listed in their Spam database or not . If its flagged as spam then Akismet moves that comment to spam folder where you can review it . However Akismet have one major disadvantages :- Some bloggers keep commenting on various blog in order to get backlinks . However there is nothing bad in commenting but Akismet takes them as a spammer and moves their comments to Spam Folder. So next time don’t trash your spammed comments folder with closed eyes : p .
Twitter Link Comments
Its another great plugin from Andy Bailey ( Comment Luv ) . It adds an additional way to communicate your members with each others ,using their twitter accounts . In their comment their would be a field with their twitter username .
So that was the list of WordPress Plugins that I use on TechnoUpdates.Org to attract more commenters and to reduce spam . There are also some more plugins like Facebook comment, RSS Reminder etc that can also be used .
