I have banned an ip that tried to login too many times as an administrator and every since I'm seeing many spammy comments on my website. The comments are not published directly, thus they are not picked up by the serach engines because I delete the spam comments.
I was wondering though whether all this spam visitors would have an impact on my Adsense earnings. I assume that to some extent it shouldn't have, as long as they are not clicking on the ads. And from that point of view I do not have any problems (or so I think because I did not get my new earnings since I banned that ip). In any case I propose to disregard this detail of clicks by spammers which is treated anyway in another subject.
My question is about the spammers that visit my website, could it have a negative impact on the earnings?
I could invest more time to prevent more spam from reaching my website, but I would rather invest time in creating more content rather than figthing spam, because I'm deleting that spam comments that do not get to be published.
I have noticed a slight decrease in my earnings, and I was wondering whether it is related to this spam visits that end up in spam comments being posted (not published though).
