To enable Akismet on your WordPress blog, go to the Plugins panel and activate the Plugin. You will be prompted to get an API key from Akismet.com after you sign up for a payment plan. After Akismet is activated, you'll see a menu added to the Comments Panel that holds a list of "caught" comment spam.

Here are some of the common methods that you could put into practice, to keep spam comment at bay -

1. Cut down the number of links allowed per post

2. Make a list of ‘blacklisted’ words

3. Create a comment moderation system

4. Limit comment privileges to registered users only

5. Use an anti-spam plugin

6. Opt for a third-party comments plugin
