Hi there,

I'm building a blog base on wordpress, I built some blogs last time but too more spams on comments thus I must disable blog comment fuction. So anyone give me any advice, should I allow comments on my blog for guest blogging?

And additional question, which is benefits of blog comments if I get more comments on each blog article ?

Yes of course, you should allow blog comments - the more number of comments the more is your blogs popularity. But do not make blog comments get posted direct, have them submit in a moderation queue from where you can be choosy enough to post the relevant comments that are directly related to your articles. This will help you to filter spam and also increase the popularity of your blog.

Commenting shows that your blog is active and hence gets more SEO scores by Google and other search engines adding more visibility aspects but you must be careful about spam comments. You can use CAPTCHA to avoid spam comments and you may use one of the many great commenting plugins to get to your purpose.

Better test yourself commenting system. If user won't be able to post a comment, he won't get into interaction again. That's why I wouldn't recommend recaptcha, as it's a positive comment killer.
As it goes for spammers, I recommend using word filters and inform, that comment will get into moderation queue. This simple notice stops dozen spammers from wasting their time. Those who still want to give a shot, will need to work a bit harder to bring some valuable content into your blog ;)

Yes it's a best way to get more traffic, you let people coment your posts but I advice you to put Nofollow on links

I have the same opinion with Adriana14, more people commenting blog that don't need backlinks, they only want to share their thought to everyone.

If you allow it, then make sure you add captcha and to use Akismet or BadBehavior plugins.

Yes! Definitely you have to allow comments in your blog. It will help you to engage with your readers and allow them to share their thoughts and suggestions about the article.
