This happened two days ago, but I didn’t notice it until today. That’s the most spam I have gotten in one day since I started my blog back in June 2013. Usually I get maybe 1 – 2 spam a couple of times per week or less. I hadn’t bothered to check my Spam folder for the last few days as it was at 0 spam when I last checked. I don’t keep track of how much Spam shows up in one day, but 30 in a week’s time was my previous record. Those were spread over several days.
I went through them to make sure Akismet hadn’t snagged an actual non-Spam post or two in its zeal to protect me from spam. It hadn’t. I will go through them again in a day or two on the off-chance I missed some non-Spam, but based on the random blog names, it doesn’t believe I missed any. I didn’t have an excessive amount of visitors or views compared to my averages during that time frame.
