WordPress Spam Be Gone!

wordpress, Akismet, comment spam filter

My lovely client, Julia May from ClickEats, asked me what to do about the spam comments on her blog, I told her to activate the Akismet (a default plug-in).

Other than activating it from your WordPress Plugins menu, you will need to get an API key. The API Key is free for a personal blog but if your site earns more than $500/mo, then you will need to subscribe for a commercial API key starting at $5/mo.

It took me a few years of staring at the plugin list before I activated Akismet. Now, I wished I activated it sooner.
