Spam Filtering

Protect your site from being inundated with spammy and unsavoury content.

What is spam?

Spam refers to unsolicited – and often unsavoury – content and links that has nothing to do with your website or its content.

Website spammers are usually trying to “steal” traffic from your website by posting legitimate-looking comments and pingbacks which trick visitors into visiting dodgy or suspicious affiliate sites.

Spam is not a direct threat to your website security but it can have the following effects:

  • Steals your traffic by sending visitors to other sites.
  • Makes your site and brand look unprofessional and uncared for.
  • Possibly result in blacklisting or banning by search engines.
  • Potentially compromise your customers and readers if they are tricked into disclosing personal information on other sites.

It is possible to manually moderate each and every comment left on your site and verify their authenticity, but why waste all that time?
