If you are running WordPress then try this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/akismet/
it filters and remove spam comments automatically.

I agree with Akismet, it has a large database knowing what is spam and what is not.

I would have to +1 for akismet also. They pick up on almost all spam comments that we see. While there may be a cost associated, how much do you value your time manually going through the comments?

Akismet and Cloudflare works great together! Cloudflare recognizes when you've recieved spam to try and block the spam visit in the future, before they make a spam comment.

I use Akismet and Growmap Anti Spambot Plugins. They are very useful to prevent and identify the spam comments. You can make settings to delete automatically spam comments.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/akismet/
https://wordpress.org/plugins/growma...pambot-plugin/

Both are free plugins.

Akismet and Growmap Anti Spambot Plugins are good to prevent the spam commenting.

Use cloudflare CDN. It will increase your site performance and protect your site from a range of online threats from spammers to SQL injection to DDOS.

They have free plan.
try with it.

We have literally tried over 10 plugins, but NOTHING works like akismet. It's definitely the best spam stopper out there.

Use MaxCDN or W3 Total Cache or the best is Cloudflare's FREE CDN in Wordpress.

The best way is to use a spam blocking plugin of your choice and actually WordPress provides you with one of the best as default from the moment you install.

Turn off your comment option along with make it noo follow. Normally the spammers are wanting to get one way links on their websites or the client websites, this is why they use the particular automated programs never to only spam in your blog but a great number of other blogs at the same time. Before doing this kind of, they check along with test manually in the event the blog was "Do Follow", If its certainly not do follow and you do not let users comment, this will usually minimize your comments modification and eradication task.

Moreover, in case you put an choice, for registered users may only comment, this will guide.
