If you make money on your blog via paid posts, you should set up akismet. I’ve been noticing more and more spam comments. I notice random comments on my sponsored articles too. I think the advertisers want to get more link juice by refreshing old reviewed posts. It’s actually kinda funny. It’s pretty cute even. Budget conscious advertisers will pay you to post on you blog and then try to refresh the useless old posts for you. Akismet is a must for all bloggers. It blocks comments with links, or questionable email/ip addresses. If you monetize your site with paid reviews, you have to get you some akismet protection. Remember boys and girls, if you’re gonna do the nasty(paid reviews) be protected. You know what they say, no glove no love.
