After a little investigation I did discover some of my old newsletter forms, old course website linked and for example an old about me page. Oef, this was costing me money! hihi, so much better now I’ve linked everything to the proper destinations.
But I didn’t complete this task before discovering something horrible.
I thought I was hacked. I saw all these ‘very dark’ and ‘illegal’ looking url’s on my site.
I freaked out.
But then I discovered the most obvious reason why all these links appeared on my site.
All. this. time. I. didn’t. have. a. comment. spam. tool.
HOW?! I know I used to have it, so it must have been lost somewhere in the process of installing a new design/website.
So I discovered that I had over 100.000 (!!!!) spam comment published. Iek.
I’m very sad to mention but I had to automatically delete all the comment at once, also your comments 🙁
I started manual, but then I realized it would take forever, so I had to delete everything all at once. Bye bye 200.000 comments.
I’m so sad because I have worked very hard for years, but if traveling has thought me one thing, it’s that sometimes it better to say goodbye, and this is def one of those moments.
(I used a free plugin called delete all comments easily)
If you want to delete all your spam comments too, make sure you understand that this move will remove all comments. Read more on How to easily bulk delete your comments here.
This must have really harmed my SEO scores, and also my engagement rate. I’m very sad and it feels like starting over.
