How to Totally Stop Receiving Spam Comments

Okay! Let me start my today’s post like this: I hate receiving spam comments. One thing I hate the most is going through that spam folder and fetching out those good comments that got caught in the process of the spam filter.

How to Totally Stop Receiving Spam Comment

I have used akismet right from the start. Yes, akismet was a great plugin that helped me eradicate almost all spam comments coming to my blog.

Well, the akismet did help fight bad comments at the first stage of my blogging career. But as time progresses, I entered the second phase of spamming.

Believe you me; akismet did not see most of the spam comments coming in, so I decided to support the akismet spam plugin with G.A.S.P plugin combined. But do you know what? As my blog grows even more, I met some advance set of spammers that infiltrated my blog comment section despite the anti spam plugins I was using.

Ahahah… spammers just don’t know when to stop…

If you are a blogger that receives spam comments a lot, trying to stop that spam from accessing your comment section will be the next best option, right?

How to Totally Stop Receiving Spam Comment

Sometime back, Adrienne from posted on her blog how to stop receiving spam comments using Commentluv’s own “Anti backlinker”.

After reading her post, I rushed down to my commentluv dashboard and downloaded the plugin. Yes, I did download the plugin, activated it and viola… I stop receiving those annoying spam comments just like that.

Ahahah… Yes, there was no string(s) attached to it just some few settings though 🙂

How you can stop receiving spam comments 100% using anti backlinker

First – make sure you have the commentluv premium installed and if you don’t have the premium plugin, you can download one for yourself here. Download Commentluv Premium Plugin Free

If you feel that the prize of the plugin is on the high side, you can simply use a coupon code to beat down the prize.

I did search for a coupon code that beat the commentluv premium plugin prize down to 25% off. And here is the coupon code => YKU25OFF

Now, if you have the commentluv plugin installed, go to your commentluv dashboard and download the “Anti Backlinker” plugin >>> Install it on your blog >>> Go to your dashboard >>> Click the “commentluv icon” you see by the left >>> click the “Anti Backlink” option to take you to its folder.

Are you there now? Let’s see some of the awesome features the “Anti Backlink” has…

√ You can now advice other bloggers who don’t have a gravatar to get one with the “gravatar check” option. The reason I love this section more, is simply because you can either warn those faceless commentators to get a gravatar or you can disable your comment section for bloggers who do not have a gravatar.

Now, when you deny comments on bloggers who do not use gravatar, they will receive a message like the one below.

Stop Receiving Spam Comment with ant spam linker

Trust me, the above stops spam comments 99.9%

√ You can also prevent further comments from being submitted from your commenters if they already have a certain number of comments in moderation queue.

√ You can choose who to give link and who not to give link love

Aside the little and most powerful features mentioned above, it still does even more…

Now you have one good reason to kick out spam comments. Here’s a video done by Adrienne on how to set it up properly.

You can buy your commentluv here or use the above coupon code to slash the price down to 25% off

  1. Hey Babanature,

    I LOVE this addition to CommentLuv Premium and I appreciate you sharing my video.

    As it stated, Andy had given Kim and I access to it to test out so he’s improved some thing since then. I did have to eventually go to denying all comments with no gravatars because I just got tired of messing with them. I had only two commenters that were legitimate that didn’t have that set up so I emailed them and told them what I was doing and I hope they weren’t offended. I just had to resort to this as most people eventually will as well I’m sure.

    I know a lot of people don’t like CommentLuv because it does attract spam but with the Anti Backlinker plugin addition that won’t be a problem.

    Now I know it doesn’t play nice with some free themes because I’ve had a few friends email me that they had issues but what do you expect from free right! Oh well, we can’t all be 100% happy now can we.

    Thank you again for sharing my video and I do hope that others will see the benefit of this plugin and grab it too. I’m a huge supporter of Andy’s.

    Have a great weekend and thanks again.


    1. Hello Adrienne,
      Thank you for the addition and feedback regarding this topic.
      You know, sometime back, a friend told me that he will never use the commentluv plugin again. I asked him why, and he said because of the spam comments it attracts.
      I asked him if he has tried the anti backlinker and he replied “No”. Then i employ him to try it again but this time he should add the anti backlinker to his addition. He did and till now, he does not receive spam comments 🙂

      Commentluv is a brilliant plugin. and aside for the linkluv, the features it has is just too awesome 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a wonderful week ahead.

  2. Hi Babanature,

    You’re right, nobody likes spam. And yes, Anti backlinker from Andy is a great addon to CommentLuv. You must be wondering why am I appreciating the Anti backlinker plugin even though I’ve removed CommentLuv from my blog.

    Well, I still stick to my statement that CommentLuv is great, and a “must” plugin for all newbie bloggers. Even for the seasoned ones too if you want traffic. I still recommend CommentLuv and might as well return to it after my experimenting with commenting systems is done.

    I’ve personally used the Anti backlinker plugin and you can apply many conditions through it for the comments to be approved or eligible. Some commentators might consider them as restrictions, but then I think bloggers should be understanding and cooperate with each other to deal with spam.

    You’re right that Akismet and GASP combination also isn’t enough to stop the comment spam. The other not popular options are to use captchas below the comment box.

    I’m using Jetpack Comments presently, and I almost get “zero” comment spam, and I just use the help of Akismet. But for those who use CommentLuv, I’d tell them to just do what you say in this post.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hello Harleena,
      You’ve said it all as it is and for that, i say thank you 😉

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your wonderful comment as always. Do have a wonderful weekend rest 🙂

  3. Hello; thanks for the explanation of using comment luv premium to stop spam comments. I haven’t gotten to the point on either of my sites where kismet isn’t able to control the weeds. but my latest post is getting close to 40 comments plus my replies; so the time may be coming. thanks again and take care, Max

    1. Hello Maxwell and welcome to my blog 🙂
      Akismet is a great plugin. it blocks spam comments. but when you get a lot of spam comments, some will escape its filter. When a blog get more eyes, that’s how it will be. Using a more sophisticated anti spam plugin is just the right choice.

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your wonderful comment, do have yourself a faithful weekend

  4. Hi Babanature,

    Everybody hate spam to be frank, and premium commentluv plugin itself is a great tools for all blogger. I only limited myself to the free version and never dream of going for the premium but with the rate my spam plugin keep sending away unnecessary spam comment to the junk, I think it’s high time I zoom off to get a premium version of the plugin.

    1. Hello Adesanmi,
      The free version of commentluv is no where near the premium version. and i must confess that the premium is just too awesome, why? because of the multiple options it has.

      I am sure that you’ll love the commentluv premium when you use it 😉
      hanks for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a good weekend

      1. I don’t dispute that but for the sake of those that couldn’t afford the payment for the premium version, they too can go for the alternative!

        1. Hello Once again Adesanmi,
          You’re right about that, for bloggers who can’t afford the premium should use the alternate. But still i’ll advice bloggers to at least try the above coupon code so the prize can be slash down to its minimum.

          Thanks for stopping by and clarifying your comment more. Do have yourself a lovely week start…

  6. This is nice and well written
    Actually having SPAM on you comments lists is kind of a big headache
    But not really sure if this CommentLuv of a thing going ot be more active than using DISQUS and AKISMET
    Since in my thinking those two more powerful and very SPAM conscious
    The only thing is AKISMET keeping the SPAMS in SPAM list while DISQUS actually discouraging SPAMMER to even bother to comment at all on your site….
    Nice one!

    1. Hello Lawrence,
      The Anti Backlinker is totally different from the disqus and Akismet. Unlike both plugins, the anti backlinker totally stops spam… and you can adjust its function to your taste.

      Try commenting on my blog using an email that doesn’t have a gravatar and see what message you’ll get.
      I have totally stopped receiving spam comment from the time i installed the plugin till now.

      Thanks for your contribution though, it was indeed welcomed. Do have a wonderful weekend ahead…
