Akismet Works!

After having my website online as it was designed in iWeb with static website structure &  4 to 5 pages… I was more than happy…!!!

But after I deployed WordPress as my website’s main CMS (Content Management System), I had my Art Blog, my Art Portfolio & other defined pages belonging to my business & liking… My WordPress powered website gave me the boost in google analytics of 100 to 200% in visits & pageviews… But wordpress triggered another feature of website interaction i.e. blog comments.

I was receiving around 100 to 150 comments monthly, sadly all were SPAM & It was frustrating…

But then I realized that I have Akismet installed on my website with valid API key but in deactivation mode for that time being…

So I found answer & realize that how spam free comments can be…!!! so I activated the plugin that just detects spam & delete it at first instance… no further looking needed on those issues anymore…!!!

So it was as simple as, 1. Install Plugin, 2. Activate it with your valid API key & no third step needed.

And really today my comments & messages box receives only valid comments & not by spammer.

I really thanks to Akismet, Akismet Really Works!

I am really amaze that there is free service like this available to bloggers with wordpress itself…!!!

Really thanking WordPress Community here…!!!
