Like Spam from Russian Spammers
Recently I received “like” spam from Russian spammers.
The profile of the 4 likes (at the comments section) includes 4 adult websites hosted in Russia.
Sure, it is not very prominent, but my website is educational and targeted at children/parents. Also, I am worried that such words will harm my SEO.
How do I remove such “likes”?
The blog I need help with is mathtuition88.com.
I am also receiving ‘like’ spam from Russian spammers. They seem to be liking a lot of my comments on other blogs over the last day – and as such they are coming up in my notifications.
They are coming up in my notifications as for instance:
‘www.sеху.ttdlrx.ru | Azabu10-D-Dental’s Blog’ on https://garydlum.com/2018/04/01/breasts-and-thighs/#comment-1268.
‘www.sеху.rphgu.xyz | Floptuf’s Blog’ on https://garydlum.com/2018/03/25/planetary-health/#comment-1259
I notice that each spam like is from a different spammer, but of a similar name.
Hope this can be looked into.
As the above comments mention.
I also am getting likes on other likes in my posts also likes from http://www.sexy.zaqto.ru on likes I have put on other blogs. I think this is spam. How can I block them
I’ve just found this thread after posting about the problem on another thread. (Sorry for any confusion WordPress!). Same problem and same worries. For the moment I’ve disabled the like option on my site. Should I be doing anything else?
Same here… my blog > https://nil1950.wordpress.com
I had started a new thread as I didn’t see this one. Sorry about that. :-)
I have the same problem on my blog here
I’ve also disabled the like button and likes on comments as well.
I’m getting these unwanted Likes pretty much every hour . Very annoying and I might disable likes like @morethanabitdeaf if this continues in the meantime.
Two suggestions to WordPress:
1) Possibly delete the Gravatar account of the spammers. Ideally, it should be programmed such that deleting the Gravatar should remove all likes stemming from the Gravatar account.
2) Possibly give us the ability to moderate “likes”, like the way we can moderate comments. This way we can Trash or mark as spam those unwanted likes.
I’m having the exact same problem! They are spamming my likes nonstop! All the same kinds of profile names as listed above! What can I do?
I disabled the like button in admin settings and turned off the likes on comments and it seems to have stopped.
I rather not disable my Likes because I have some readers who read my posts and want to show their appreciation through a Like.
Just as I am typing this I have received another Spam like.
I’ve had one where I’ve liked a comment on someone else’s blog not mine so it obviously works one mine.
Hi folks –
Please list out the usernames that you’re being spammed by and I’ll have a look.
There are heaps. Not all of them have a username or blog. These are some Spammers that have been liking my comments on other blogs:
http://www.sеху.ttdlrx.ru – Azabu10-D-Dental’s Blog ajddo.wordpress.com
http://www.sеху.rphgu.xyz – Floptuf’s Blog floptuf.wordpress.com
http://www.sеху.ataxa88.ru – weculys werculys.wordpress.com
Mine are all from http://www.sexy.(random letters).ru or the same with .website at the end. I had about ten different ones…….do you need all the different random letter options?
Thanks for your help on this.
Thanks for you help that’s all of them

WordPress support has said they cannot stop spammers from liking my posts. I should have thought they would have the means to do this and it is very disappointing that they cannot. WordPress please look into being able to remove reported spam likes, such as the spate I have received such as:
And when you ask for their help they send you here. Useless
I’ve experienced the same problem. Although I clicked onto the message for further information did not interact with the source.
No messages yet on my posts, just ‘likes’ to comments I made on other posts.
