I get a lot of comments

My posts receive several comments per day. However, none of them are from real people. They’re seemingly from Russian spam bots which trawl the web pasting garbage into unwitting comment boxes.

I wonder what their goal is? They always contain a link, which makes sense, but to what? Is it about catching the clicks and compromising people’s browsers? Or is it more of a subversive technique to increase a site’s ranking on Google but having links to it appear across the internet?

If you know, leave a comment. I might see it among the detritus.
