Watching spam visitors in real-time

Since I installed the WP-UserOnline plugin on my blog, I’ve been having fun looking at the spam visitors every once in a while.

Just look at them here on the screen shot:


Spam Comments

Either they’re just spam bots or real people who posted spam comments here before. And they’re having the time of their life. Too bad Akismet catches them 98% of the time before they could inflict any more damage.

Note: Names of real blog readers were grayed off for privacy reasons.

    i am really impressed by the number of visitors you have… ung sa akin hanggang 20 visitors lang ang lagi kong nakikita at me lang ang member nito… :-)

    usually, a populor website will get these nasty spams coming to their blog. he3.

    btw why don’t you update your permalinks structure? instead of using post id as the permalinks, you can make it to fancy permalinks instead. :)

    don’t get discouraged. Having few or just you as a member of you blog doesn’t mean no one is reading your blog.

    Same case with me. I have very few blog members, as in few, but I know legitimate people are reading my blog and stays there for some minutes (usually just to read and check other related blog posts), but they’re there, not a member, just a reader.

    Some post comments, the majority don’t. Example, my blogs unique visitors went tremendously up the past few months after someone linked a simple “game map” of World of Warcraft in the different WoW forums around the world (incl. unofficial forums).

    They are there ^_^
