Check the dashboard regularly.
WordPress is great for catching spam, you don’t have to download plugins for the system to catch it. At the same time it, not 100% perfect. I use another plugin called Akismet Anti-Spam. Which helps but again isn’t perfect. It tends to flag stuff that isn’t spam. Can just simply be because it was posted the exact same time as something else. Or it just had keywords that flagged the system. So onto my point.
Make sure to check the dashboard at least once a week to check what the system has flagged as spam is spam. Check the comments and feedback. When you unspam something it should go to your notifications or to your email if it is a feedback.
