Tuesday Tidbit #11- Watch out for spammed comments!

Happy Tuesday to all you awesome folks! I hope you all are living your best lives!

Today’s Tidbit is something that becomes an issue pretty regularly for every blogger, whether they’re aware of it or not. It’s something that I forget sometimes, and I’ve been blogging for almost two years.

Every once in a while, make sure to check the comments section of your admin page! Sometimes WordPress will assume that a comment is spam, when it’s really not! If you don’t know how to do that, it’s actually super easy!

If you’re looking at your blog, you should see a little tab in the top left that says “My Sites.” If you click on that, all the way at the bottom should be a tab that says “WP Admin.” That’ll bring you to a new page called your admin Dashboard, which has a whole bunch of information.

In the middle of the list of tabs on the left, you’ll see one for comments. Once you click on that, you’ll be able to find the spam comments pretty easily. Go through there and see if there are any that shouldn’t be in there.

You don’t want any of your followers to feel like they’re being ignored, so make sure to go through those spammed comments every once in a while to make sure you’re not ignoring anyone accidentally!


Thanks for reading!

  1. I’ve heard people taking about their comments going to spam but I never knew how to find mine until now so think you so much for sharing. I had like 50 spam comments but luckily only 1 of them was an actual comment and it was only a few days old.
