Typhoons Can Minimize Spam Comments In Your Blog!

Spams are annoying. Eversince this blog is indexed by Google, spammers indexed it too! And I’ve been receiving at least 20 spam comments everyday. Thank God, Akismet is there, but still, it wasn’t enough. I don’t even want to see them on my Akismet logs. I don’t want them to be able to post the comment in the first place before Akismet found them and put them on the spam list. I want them to vanish, as if a typhoon wiped them out. So, I decided to search for a captcha plugin.

There are many captcha plugin available on the web. And I like Peter’s Custom Anti Spam the most and installed it on this blog. What I like on it is that you can create your own list of captcha keywords, and it will generate the necessary jpg file for you. For this blog, I used the official Philippine typhoon names. If the spam bots can’t identify the typhoon name, then they will not be able to post the comment. See, typhoons can be useful sometimes. LOL!

  1. Best wishes with the spam control. I installed Akismet on my WordPress blogs last month and have been virtually spam free since. My The Article Writer was particularly vulnerable but so far all is well.

    I wish you much success with your blog too.

  2. yan parehas na tayo hehehheh! nice…thankx

  3. I’ve been looking for a good spam blocker & this one looks like a lot of fun

  4. Are you sure that “nooh” and “xoxoxo” are real typhoon names? 🙂

  5. Prevention is better than cure ika nga.
    Don’t let the spam comments even gatecrash to your blog.

    @Yury, baka international typhoon names na ang ginamit nya, hehehe.
