Spam has become a real issue in some form or another for almost every website online today. It can drive businesses up the wall, scrambling to find ways to stop the spam from reaching their inbox.
We use WordPress for all our clients websites, and there is no doubt that with over 75 million websites built on WordPress, it has quickly become a target for spammers to feast on.
When people think of anti spam on their contact forms, they think of things like Google Captcha, which is a great way of cutting down on spam, but let’s be honest, it’s a bit of an eye-sore and adds an extra step to your forms.
We tried out numerous anti-spam solutions, many of which did a great job, but they just didn’t do what we needed, and that was to have forms without the extra step or having to pick from a bunch of images. I’m pretty sure those kinds of anti spam methods have lost us a few good leads over time. Today we use CleanTalk.org anti-spam and since we have added it our site 3 weeks ago on the 1st April 2021 , our spam levels have dropped to zero!
How Can We Use Anti-Spam For Our Clients?
One of the main purposes of our testing was to try and find a solid anti-spam solution that we could add to our client websites that are on our monthly packages. We believe that CleanTalk will not just keep spam from reaching your inbox from your contact and lead forms, but also reduce any chance of website visitors not completing the forms our client websites.
If you are a client of ours, and are on our monthly plans, over the next few weeks, we will be adding CleanTalk to your website so your website visitors and have a more streamlined way to contact you, and you can enjoy a completely spam free experience.
