Need help with the terms
« on: Jun 21, 2014 @ 10:46 AM »
Hey everyone-
I've been blogging for about 3 years but I've only recently started to get more "serious" about it.  Is there a cheat sheet somewhere that defines the lingo? 
SEO? 
Pingback? 
Blog Roll?
I'm self-hosted wordpress and I am having terrible spam troubles.  I get about 20 spams a day.  I have moderated comments on, so I just delete them.  I don't want to put that feature in where people have to "prove they aren't a robot"...I find that annoying when I'm commenting, so I don't want to do it to my readers. 
Thank you!

I tweeted a blog lingo page not to long ago!

At some point, you may have to add captcha. It's the nature of the beast. I've been wresting with horrible amounts of spam so I just sit there and hit the delete button over and over. Even with captcha!

But moderating comments is the best way to go. When you decide to stop doing that, definitely add captcha.

Install Akismet! It catches spam.

For the spam, I would suggest Akismet as well -- before installing that plugin I was seeing 10-20 spam comments a day, and now it's less than one a week. Definitely worth a shot! :)
