Have you ever seen whenever you are logging in to your WordPress blog and there are lots of popup comments to be moderated? Even comments are more than that of my posts. Daily I am receiving lots of comments out of which most of are spam comments and I am deleting such comments because they are not of any use.
Comments are important for determining website popularity because the regular readers are leaving a response to the post for like and dislikes about the topic. One of my friend saying that out of 10 blogs in the world 6 blogs are WordPress blogs and so spam comments must be avoided to save lots of time by reading them and deleting them. Here are some of the best WordPress anti-spam plugins that you should know about.
Free WordPress AntiSpam Plugins
Captcha is the best WordPress Plugin according to me because it adds Captcha code to be entered by commenters, users and webmasters. Basically, the code to be entered is depending on mathematical logic which can be used for login, registration, resetting the password, comments forms.
The box is shown in the comment sections where users have to comment & they have to enter the logic code before publishing a comment on your website.
This way automatic spam bots cannot publish comments on your website because it can give an answer to such a logical question.
So basically your WordPress blog will be free from spammer bots comments. It adds 1+2=? or 9-1=? like logical questions that can be answered only by humans.

It is another similar WordPress plugin helps you to save your time by not allowing spam comments by bots. It does not shows any box to enter a logical mathematical code in to box but shows only an image in which there is some code appears and that has to be entered into the box.
