“What? Scaring them away? What do you mean?”
What I mean is, are your readers able to comment on your blog with NO ISSUES?
I find this on more Blogger/Blogspot blogs than anything. I read a great post, I want to add a comment, and yet I can’t!
“What do you mean, I can’t?”
Because the words, numbers, symbols and whatever else may be showing up in your CAPTCHA box, may not be easily readable to your commenter, thus deterring them away. I’ll be honest, on my phone and table? Forget it. It’s truly a shame because I love to leave comments, especially if I can relate to the post OR if it’s an awesome post.
“What else can I do?”
Or if you’re like me, at least on my Blogger blog, I don’t use CAPTCHA. Try it out for a while and see what happens? If you get an enormous amount of spam, just enable CAPTCHA again.
“How do I disable it on Blogger?”
Simply go to your Dashboard. Settings. Posts and Comments. Set “Show Word Verification” to NO as shown below and then SAVE.
