Hello!

 

I got around 800 comments on my Shopify Blog. The comments are just a short word with letters and numbers, such as:

 

- gfeyADUGiVBdgnO

- pGhRYIpQa

 

What is this?? Should I delete all of them (they require to be approved or deleted)?

 

Thank you :-)

Hi,

I got the exact same thing today. This some kind of technique used by spammer to check if you have a manual comment approval in place (will the comments be posted as soon as the user submits them).

If the admin approval is not in place you can expect to see a lot more spam to your blog pages.

Best Action:

  • Enable Admin Comment Approval
  • Mark this type of comment as spam or delete them

Hope this helps!

Stevie.
