This might be an odd question. But I know you can get spam hits to your posts and spam comments. But can a spam bot or whatever subscribe people to your blog?? The reason I ask, in the last 2 weeks I have had a bunch of “unusual” people subscribe to my blog through wordpress. This has not happened before. By “unusual” I just mean that I have a very specific subject blog about Christianity/religion and all my subscribers are usually other people who blog on Christianity or other religious issues. But the last couple weeks, I have people subscribing who don’t even remotely have any thing to do with my topic! I can not figure out why in the world they would want to subscribe. I am not complaining, but it just seemed curious that this is suddenly happening….so I wondered if it could be some type of spam situation.
I have not experienced spam subscribers yet, but I have noticed a surge in my spam comments over the last two weeks, jumping from 20 last month to 110 this month! It would not surprise me if these “unusual” subscribers are spam.
