How to Protect Your Page From Spam?

All web-sites without exception suffer from spambots. Advertising questionable ways to make money in the comments spoils the reputation and scares users. Empty registrations greatly distort the real statistics of online stores and prevent owners from correctly assessing the situation. Visitor activity makes the site more popular. But where a lot of people are, spammers will inevitably appear. With them, even the friendliest blog or website quickly turns into trash.

There are several ways you can protect your site or blog from spam. For example, you can hire a moderator, install a standalone anti-spam program or use cloud anti-spam. The last option is the most optimal way of protection. You install the plugin, and it automatically checks comments and registrations, blocks spammers, and does not interfere with ordinary users.
