Stop spamming my blog

Every day, I get a bogus comment from a creature that calls itself Alanna Gracia. Alanna Gracia is not a real person, Alanna Gracia is a leech, a parasite. It is the product of a sleazy website called Kitchen-Remodel-Ideas dot US.


Alanna Gracia leaves the same comment every day:

I found this article very up-to-date and informative as it provides excellent ideas for kitchen remodeling without breaking the bank. With this handy information, you are able to make your decisions more wisely and obtain the best kitchen re-modelling plan for yourself. I would like to add more information about kitchen re- modeling that can help you build your dream kitchen.

It doesn't matter what the topic of a post is, that's the comment it leaves.

Every day without fail, I delete it as soon as I see it and then I go to the parasitic website that spawned Alanna Gracia and I ask it to stop spamming me. It never does and every day I get a new comment from Alanna Gracia.

If you ever see a link for Kitchen-Remodel-Ideas dot US, don't follow it because it's a scam site. Unless of course, you'd like to leave a spammy comment for them. Leaving a spammy comment for a spammer would be pretty poetic, don't you think?

Now if I link to Kitchen-Remodel-Ideas dot US it will only help their SEO so I won't link to them. But remember to include the hyphens if you'd like to drop them a love note. And Alanna Garcia, I'm looking forward to deleting your comment after this post in particular.

  1. LOL, this is great. I have a few good "readers" that stop by each week to comment on my blog each week as well. They're so complimentary, too!

  2. Don't even go to that site, even to spam them. You'll just increase their traffic and make them look more legitimate. It sucks to see jerks with crap like that getting traffic when I work SO hard to get traffic to my pet project site. Maybe I should start sending people annoying comments? :P

  3. I'm surprised you can't simply block them, since it's always the same email adress?

  4. Raylee: They;re driving me crazy. These people are just the latest offenders in a long line of them.

    Julie: Wouldn't it be fun to be a leech?

    Nim: What's your pet project site? What have I missed?

    Clarity: Blogger only lets me block followers, not casual readers. At least so far as I can tell.

  5. Are you able to change your comments to something like @cupboards has that always him to review and approve a comment?

  6. Can you grab their IP and/or email from your visitor's log? I had to block a couple of IPs - one was out and out stealing the feed and posting it to their own bogus site. In WP it is in the Settings under "Discussion." Perhaps Blogger has something similar.

  7. Amy: I turned that off ages ago. Allowing anonymous commenters allows for a more diverse comments section but it comes at a price sometimes.

    Grace: I'll figure it out. Those people are going to rue the day they singled out me.

    It's a website all about captive cetaceans and how detrimental that practice is to both whales and people. I'm trying to create a decent resource that's put together in a way that doesn't say "this website was designed in 1990" and is full of information. So far, so good. Just a matter of getting ppl to *look* at it :)

  9. How are you going about getting people to look at it? What kind of plan do you have in place? How can I help?

  10. I found this article very interesting and informative.


    hahahahaha
    sorry couldn't resist

    that must be hair-pullingly irritating, my sympathies.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hah! It is irritating but in the big scheme of things if this is all I have to worry about I must be doing OK. And of course it's not the only think I have to worry about so it sends me in paroxysms of rage.

  12. My plan to help me get views(and what I'm currently doing) is leaving lots of comments on news articles & comments on animal rights blogs, as well as asking more established sites on the same or similar topics for backlinks from their link/reference pages.

    Also using social media to get hits (FB, twitter, digg, reddit..)

    The rest of my plan for the site is to add as much quality information as I can get my hands on :)

  13. Good plan. I just added you to my "Links I Like" section so now you get another backlink. Never underestimate the power of Twitter by the way.

  14. I feel like I'm spamming people with Twitter. Maybe it's just because I don't like to read Twitter unless people are saying super interesting or funny things. So I feel like *I* must be boring too :(

  15. I teach a class on how to make sense of Twitter by the way. Actually, the key is to use something other than Twitter as an interface. Vancouver's own HootSuite is how I learned to love Twitter. I'm not kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'll have to look into another interface, the Twitter one really stinks.

    Thank you for the link btw :)

  17. I never understood Twitter until I found HootSuite and I stayed on the sidelines until then. Since then, Twitter has become my third largest traffic driver and it's the root of nearly all of my income. I believe in Twitter like you cannot imagine.
