This is a century-old problem for all the website administrators – how to deal with spam messages. For WordPress site admins, it’s especially true. Once your site is indexed in Google, you start receiving spam messages.
Anti-spam becomes a must-instal for all wordpress sites; and still you will get to see “escapers” from time to time.
There is a way out from this cat-and-mouse race, and it will even add to the benefits of the website, it’s very easy and doesn’t require you to install any plugins.
That is – turning spam messages into social approvals.
It’s simple – when the messages are in “pending” status, edit them: delete the website links, delete the sender’s emails or even change the messengers’ nickname as you wish.
Then, edit the message – this is the main trick! Delete the spam info and write whatever you like, whatever you’d like to hear, such as “this is a great website and I already bookmarked it to revisit again”; or any praise that you want.
And voila, you’ve added fans and social approvals to your posts!
