Hello - Has anyone else noticed a surprising uptick in spam comments this month? My blog doesn't get a lot of traffic (feel free to change that for me! ) and certainly not many comments. This month, however, I've had 198 spam comments (according to Akismet), versus 195 total for the previous 11 months. Yet, I haven't seen a corresponding uptick in overall traffic to the site; not that the two necessarily go together, but I think of spam as a percentage of traffic.
Has something changed with Akismet? Anyone else seen this?
The blog I need help with is cvanhasselt.wordpress.com.
