How to reduce spam in your Blogger blog comments ?

2 Comments

spam I really hate those bullshit comments in which the commenter leaves his URL in the end, like “This is really cool site, plz visit my site again , http://djflewjwgjonl3r3.blogspot.com” and other blah! blah! blah! messages. These all are considered SPAM. So how we can reduce this thing in our blog.

 

If you are using a blogger blog then here is a simple method to reduce SPAM :

 

1. Click on Settings

1. Just login to your Blogger Account on blogger.com and click on your blogs Settings.

 

2. Go to Comments

 

2. Look for Comments Tab under settings page.

 

3. Choose these options under this section.

3. Under the Who can Comment Section choose Registered Users ( my recommendation ) or Users with Google Account . This will allow only those persons to comment who have accounts on Google, OpenID, Typepad, Wordpress, AIM and Live Journal. Now those Anonymous and unnamed guys to put those crappy comments. Therefore if a person wants to comment he/she should be a registered user of any  of those platforms.

 

4. You will also find this section and choose as in the image

4. Now head to the comments moderation section and choose Always Ask option. Now whenever someone comments on a post you will be asked if the comment should be published  or rejected. If non-member of your blog leaves a comment then the update will be sent to your email.

 

 5. Verify Words to prevent bots5. Verify Words to prevent bots

5. Scroll down and you will find Show word verfication for comments and choose yes.When someone comments a Random image with some words will be shown, if they are typed correctly only then the comment will be sent for moderation or posted.

 

6. Finally you have configured!!

6. Finally click on save settings and you are done.

 

You may find similar settings in other blogging platforms like Wordpress, Typepad and others.So from now on only publish the comments you feel are safe.

Do you know that Windows 7 has no Windows Movie Maker ? The great application which was coming preinstalled as a part of the Windows since the XP. But Microsoft has removed it from their latest Windows 7 by making it a part of Windows Live Essentials.

 

To install it you will have to download the Windows Live setup tool from Microsoft Website. Just select Windows Movie Maker from the available software and then it will be installed. The installation time will depend upon your Internet connection speed because the software is installed online. Microsoft does not provide the setup file for their Live Essential tools at present. So an internet connection is must to install these tools.

 

This version of Windows Movie Maker has a good looking interface, although using it for first time will definitely make you miss the older version.
