Spam Filtering

Protect your site from being inundated with spammy content.

What is spam?

Spam refers to unsolicited — and often unsavory — content and links that have nothing to do with your website or its content.

Website spammers are usually trying to divert traffic away from your website by posting legitimate-looking comments and pingbacks to trick visitors into visiting suspicious affiliate sites.

Spam is not a direct threat to your website security, but it still has negative effects:

  • Steals your traffic by sending visitors to other sites.
  • Makes your site and brand look unprofessional and uncared for.
  • Can result in your site being blacklisted or banned by search engines.
  • Compromises your customers and readers if they’re 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?
