Small business owners have enough on their hands in running their business without having to deal with annoying spam. Imagine if the postman delivered thousands of junk mail to your letterbox each week and you had to check each one …. you wouldn’t stand for it. Spam comments on blogs and business can be enough to drive you around the bend. They can come flooding in like a tsunami unless you take steps to slow the flow …. or stop them completely if possible.
Ingrid Cliff from Heart Harmony describes spammers as …
……..the greatest pests to ever have existed. They are akin to plagues of locusts and cane toads in Australia. Just like all pests they are persistent – you just get one loophole plugged and they creep in another. They are the bottom feeders of the internet world.
Lol, and I’m sure many of you would add even more colourful language to describe them.
Ingrid offers some tips on how to handle these pesky pests. Her post was prompted by her experience in receiving an enormous amount of spam over the holidays. Heart Harmony is full of tips for small business owners. What I like about reading Ingrid’s blog is that you’re not having to read reams of pages to get a few tips.
This particular tip comes along at the right time for me – one of those things I’ve been wanting to look into for a while - work out how to use/activate Akismet to help reduce spam comments on my blogs. Every bit helps.
It’s done it now - thank you Ingrid …. plus I’ve made note of all your tips.
I hope you find this helpful too.
Ciao for now
