I Am Having Many Love For Your Website

I'm not sure why, but is getting pelted by spam posts -- like, way more than Suburban Jungle or NeverNever. The general model is a URL in the "website" field, which is kosher enough, and a "comment" along the lines of "These tips are so true!" -- on a fiction piece. Or a more generic comment like "Your have many useful info in your blog."

I don't know what to make of this. Certainly, anybody who puts a presence on the web needs to be prepared for the Attack of the Spammers ... but why is, a relative newbie of site, getting so many more than SJ or NN? Is it somehow a more "high profile" site, just because it's not already hanging out in the webcomics ghetto? I haven't set up any "link trading" arrangements nor run any ads for it, just set up WordPress and started posting.

Maybe because I use it as the link in my e-mail sigs or comments on other blogs?

I'd like to think the increased attention it's getting from spammers suggests it's getting attention from other sources too ... but so far the spam comments outnumber reader comments by about 5/1. Alas!
