NEW! Comment Moderation on Blogger

I am in lurrvvveee.....


Have you tried the new comment moderation on Blogger yet?  I just started playing around with it and it seems to work wonderfully.  For those of you who use Word Press, you would recognize this feature at once.
Sign on to your Blogger Dashboard and check out the new COMMENT tab.  So far, it has caught all of my spam comments.  You will need to go to the SETTINGS tab and fill it in which is really easy.  I have put in my email address so I get a notice when there is a suspect comment.  I also set it up to only moderate comments on posts more than 21 days old.  For some reason, this is where all of my spam is posted.  I know most people won't comment on a closed contest, but that is where I get the unwanted links posted.

  1. I am LOVING this feature! I used to have comment moderation on all my posts because of the spam I was getting but I've been able to change that to only posts older than 14 days. It is so nice to not have to approve every single comment!!

  2. I'm loving it too and yet the Chinese/Japanese porn spammers are still at it. I don't know what their point is since no one sees it anymore. I got 2 today but they went right into the spam folder so I didn't have to worry about deleting them.

  3. It's great. Didn't even realize it was there until you said something. I was flipping through the comments and I had to stop myself from looking at all 3000+ comments we have.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I rarely play around in the controls, but this is a great feature, and makes me want to check it out AND make an effort to check out all those new "things" when I get on!

  5. It seems like it will be helpful, although I don't really get much span comments.

  6. Moderating comments will protect you from spammers. Moreover, it will also give you the option to filter negative comments. But over-all, it is very beneficial.
