WordPress Spam

I wasn’t getting a lot of spam on this blog until recently – I guess the URL has entered some kind of “Spam Test Targets: Rookie Level”-list – so I decided to do something about it.

WordPress comes with a spam blocker called Akismet.  By default this plugin is not active.  To activate it you need to register @ wordpress.org.  This gives you a unique API key which you need to enter when activating Akismet.

Since I activated it yesterday it has intercepted 43 spam messages.  Way to go Akismet! :-)

Thanks go to the writer of this list of tools for fighting spam in WordPress.  If Akismet is not enough, check out the other tools mentioned on the site.
