Wealthy Affiliate’s Bootcamp – Your Foundation (Phase 1, Lesson 7)

Lesson 7 of 10: Getting Your Comment Engine Ready
As your website content gets indexed in Google, Bing and Yahoo, you will soon find it receiving more and more comment spam. This is because there are automated robots out there that will submit comment spam to indexed websites in attempt to get back links and exposure to some websites.
Fortunately there is a remedy for that. It is called Akismet.
Akismet is a plugin that will block most of this spam from reaching your comment inbox in the first place.
This video, dedicated to the Akismet plugin, will show you how to:
• Activate the Akismet Plugin
• Create your Akismet.com account (in order to get API key)
• Set-up the Akismet Plugin and Activate Your Key
• Utilize the different plugin settings
If you have any questions about the set-up process of the Akismet plugin or how it functions, leave a comment below or contact me on my Wealthy Affiliate Profile and I will give you a hand.
N.B: Akismet does a pretty good job but it is not perfect. Hence comment spam will still sneak through to your site. But since half a loaf is better than none, it is still recommended that you set it up.
