There are also spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly.
