Most days, I get anything from 30-40 Spam comments captured by WordPress and consigned to the Spam Folder. However on Monday, I had an an increase in the number of views on this blog after posting five rather random articles.
In that 24-hour period, I received over 800 views, which was very satisfying.
But on checking my Spam Folder, I found not the usual 30+ comments locked in there, but an unusually high 160!
So I have come to the conclusion that more views generate more Spam.
