Can I manually Check my Akismet Spam? I have 1057 spam but...

by 4 comments
I want to make sure that all those comments are infact spam comments.

I went on Akismet's site and they say on there to manually check the spam database. I have wordpress 2.6 and have no idea how to find that database. All it tells me that it caught 1057 spam comments and that's it.

is there a way for me to check? Thanks,

    You just go inside your WordPress set up and "deactivate" the plug-in, pretty soon you'll start seeing spam in your inbox instead of going straight to moderation.

      Just dump it all

      Most of the comments i get are self serving junk anyway

      forget about the spam and do something positive

      In WordPress, look under Comments in your Dashboard. On the Comments page, you'll see near the top "Comments" and "Akismet Spam (1057)". Click on the Akismet Spam link, and you'll see all the comments that have been marked as spam. If you see any that shouldn't be there, there's a box you can check that says "Not Spam."

    There is a fine line between being respectful and offensive to one's point of view and in advertisement it can either lead to effective marketing or a lot of trouble. As they say that one man's controversial idea is another man's offensive idea. Sometimes resorting to provocative campaigns are totally worthwhile if they help you to increase your sales and establish a sustainable brand name in the market. But does that only work for big corporations like Apple, Coca-cola to take risks like these? Can small brands or startups consider such tactics for their advertisement plan as well without destroying their amateur brand legacy? These intriguing questions always pop up in my mind and I think that whether is it a good idea to create advertisements that are beautiful and genuine to attract customers which has a greater possibility of going flat with minimum response from the market or to go for calculated controversial ad campaign against your competitor to gain a lot of public attention?

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions
