Fake "Follows", "Follow" Spamming, and "Like" Spamming Rampant on Word

    How do I REMOVE the "do you want to follow this blog" option from the lower left corner of my website?

  2. Go to your Dashboard > Click on Settings, then Reading
    scroll down to disable
    Follower Settings
    These settings change emails sent from your blog to followers.
    Logged out users __ Show follow button to logged out users.
    Checking this will present a follow button to logged out users in the bottom corner of their screen.
    "save changes"

  3. Oh NERTS! You meant this widget > follow blog widget

  4. Not to prolong a discussion which seems to have no solution but I have what I'd guess is a medium-sized blog and I also have a small blog, both get fake likes and follows. My content on both blogs is specific to a foreign country, with one way more specific than the other (about a city in that country) and I get people liking or following that seemingly have nothing to do with what I'm doing. In the WP email I get about my new follower or liker, it says something like "check out what they've been up to" and it's usually an About Me and one really random other post. I don't have time to click on all of them to see what's going on there but it just feels really spammy.

    I didn't know about the "no email" option for subscription but that explains a bit.
