Google Blogging Tip # 96: Updating How to Use Your Google Blog

Q/ - I am getting a lot of SPAM in my Google blogspot Blog Comments. How do I stop this?

A/ - I got many emails recently on this subject. One follower here said he got nearly 100 spam adult sites on his Blog.
Spammers are getting smarter. They are using automated robots to search Google Blogs that have open comment settings.
See the reference below:
Reference: Google Blogging Tip # 14 from The Blog Guy,
Google Blogging Tip # 14

As a result you should change your settings to use :
Show Word Verification on Comments.
This will stop automated spam.
See the pictures below for NEW recommended settings on your Settings, Comments - from The Blog Guy.
I still do not recommend anyone using 'Comment Moderation.'

Here is your answers...

Responding to your question, part # 2 from the comment you left on my Blog, blogs follow me

I looked at your Followers section on your Blog with Apple Safari and with Firefox they both display your Followers properly.
If you are having a problem viewing them with your own browser, try another browser. It may have something to do with the way you set up your cookies, a common problem with windows.

As for the part # 1 of your question you need to Follow Googles Blogger Buzz. I will address this as a question on my other Blog, Blogs I am Following (http://www.blogsiamfollowing.blogspot.com) tomorrow.

I am also now following your Blog and you have been added to my LINKS and Blog Rolls on both Blogs Follow Me and Blogs I am Following.

This comment has been duplicated as response on my Blog,

The Blog Guy
