Your SPAM comments are starting to really take up space, and you keep meaning to go in and look at all those unapproved comments, but can’t find the time.
This is the kind of stuff that bogs your site down, causing it to load slowly or time out altogether. It’s not only frustrating to your visitors, it also gives them a chance to click away before they even get a glance at your site.
If this seems to be happening to your site, it’s time to clean it up and do a little basic maintenance. AND it’s really simple to do with the WP-Optimize plugin. At the click of a button, this plugin will remove any unnecessary spam, revisions, and spam or unapproved comments from your database. It will also optimize your database tables by removing anything “extra and unnecessary”.
As always when trying a new plugin, be sure to create a database backup before you install and use this plugin. Once you have optimized your site, set the plugin to optimize it automatically every day, week, or month (based on how much you post to your site and how much SPAM/commenting happens on your site). You will definitely notice a big change (and your hosting company will love you).
Leave me a comment about how this plugin worked for you. I’d love to hear.
