When it comes to people spamming your blog posts with comments and links

Would it be a good idea to delete them/not approve them, or to approve them so that possibly you can gain some sort of traffic for the links/content ?

    How do you gain traffic from spam links in your blog? I don't understand how that would work.

    Sometimes the content is so crappy that even a spam comment might increase the value of the article, but I'm not sure approving spam would be the right solution to that problem.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    DON'T approve spam comments. There's no way you'll get traffic from it because it's SPAM.

    It's probably easier to turn comments off completely. I have found that most comments come from automatic comment generators like Scrapebox.

    btw, has anyone ever seen a pay to comment plugin for Wordpress?

    I wouldn't turn off comments.

    If you're using Wordpress setup Akismet to filter them..
