I did a search and didn't see anything about this. Last week I was Freshly Pressed - while I greatly enjoyed the exposure and traffic surge, I have also noticed a spike in spam comments that has continued even though I'm no longer on the Freshly Pressed front page. I've instantly gone from <10 spam comments per day to several hundred! Is there any relation between Freshly Pressed and spam traffic or is it just a coincidence?
The blog I need help with is beetlesinthebush.wordpress.com.
