I’m starting to see a new type of comment spam. This is what it says:
I’ve created a new website. I really need more visitors. May I kindl (sic) ask you if I can advertise in your website please? My website is a Web-based SEO Tools elkseo.com. You can visit my website if you want then decide if you can advertise it or no. If you can, I monthly will pay you 160$ or we can talk about the Price.
I thought it was a legit enquiry at first but after seeing it on a number of sites and with links to different websites It’s now clear they are just spammers.
Hopefully if enough people report as spam Akismet will soon start blocking them.
