    Taking Spam Out of Your Site

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Every day you check your site’s comments and forums; you’re filled with hope that today intense discussions will reign supreme and suddenly, your pages have become a popular place for pop culture and great comments. Instead, you find unintelligible text and random links. In short, you find spam. Is it ruining your site? Learn how to take spam out of the equation, and out of your pages.

    Spam is Ruining My Site!

    It happens on a daily basis, and to some of the nicest Web sites out there. It's spam, and it's a violation of your space, not to mention an eyesore for your pages. Instead of a friendly atmosphere for your traffic, you've created a monster of links and advertising for a bevy of other sites. You never intended forums, discussion groups and general comment areas to become marketing tools for others, but that's exactly what's happened.

    Don't let spam ruin your site; get rid of it instead.

    Site Communication

    Today's Internet is all about user interaction and allowing traffic itself to contribute to site content. Encouraging this interaction is actually a great way to get extra, added content to any site for free...but that doesn't mean it comes without a cost. The most popular blogs out there allow comments, and forums can be a great tool for boosting traffic and offering a more complete experience to your visitors. But you never knew when you added these open areas to your pages that you'd also be opening the door to spambots and all sorts of garbage you'd rather do without.

    It may look innocuous, but that comment button can actually wreak merry havoc on your site. When you notice your pages filling up with spam instead of genuine communication, you might be tempted to pull the plug on user chatter. But the spam doesn't have to control you; learn how to take it out of the equation instead.
