4 Must Have WordPress Comments Plugins

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  .

Akismet WordPress Plugin to Reduce Spam

Download Akismet Wp Plugin

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 .

    Same Happened on my website . I found your comment in spam folder. There is basically one major reason you are commenting a lot on Akismet And Comment Luv Enabled Blogs . So make use of commenting on blogs which don’t use such a plugins and Blogger Blogs .
