I asked this over in the Wordpress Developers site and no one had a clue. There was a suggestion I should ask here.
So, I know why spammers create posts with links on Wordpress sites--they do it for SEO purposes.
But why would you spam register dozens of identities on a web site that doesn't even have a blog; that is, no where to post comments that could contain links?
Since installing a Wordpress site I've had about 30 or so daily fake registrations since the site went live. Knowing why people are doing this might help create a strategy to stop it. But I can't figure this out.
Anyone have any ideas?
