Comment spam is annoying and makes comment moderation a pain. Here’s a quick solution to eliminate all of the automated spam comments targeting your site.

UPDATE: unfortunately, the free version of this plugin was rebranded and turned into a different plugin people aren’t happy with. Until I find a good free alternative, I recommend using the Pro version of anti-spam which is still available on CodeCanyon: http://trusted.wpanswered.com/anti-spam-pro

Comment spam is as old as the web. For anyone trying to run a legitimate website, they’re a huge pain to deal with. Luckily, WordPress developers have had plenty of time to tackle this problem.

While there are quite a few plugins available to prevent comment spam, the Anti Spam plugin stands out as the best option. There’s no configuration required. Just activate the plugin and enjoy immediate spam protection. Anti Spam will block spam comments using a Javascript algorithm that won’t require real visitors to fill out a CAPTCHA.

If you find you’re still getting spammed, you can try out the Anti Spam Pro plugin (link above). This premium WordPress plugin further improves the effectiveness of the spam blocking algorithm. Even better, it adds a new settings page where you can set custom controls to block manual spam comments too. For my own site, I had to update the settings to block any comment including a link. With the automated and manual spam comment prevention, Anti Spam Pro is an excellent spam blocker for WordPress.
