    Hi All,

    Please, I need some help.

    I run a Article Directory Website, in the past 2 days, there were more than 350 new registrations and about 70 postings were made...

    Every 6 to 10 minutes, a new user is being registered and some times it takes 15 to 20 minutes.

    But when i checked my Google Analytics, there were only 4 to 5 visits mentioned in the last 2 days...

    Please, can any one tell whether its a BOT registering and posting the posts.

    Please any idea. How to check this..

    My website is http://www.ezeearticles.com

    Thanks,
    Sandy

    Hi,

    I think you should use some captcha plugin.

    This would solve the spamming issue.

    Article directories are nothing more then spam magnets.

    I setup a new directory and had not even advertised,
    within min registrations started climbing...

    they are nothing more then programmed spiders sent
    out to register on wp / AD sites so they can
    submit their junk. It can take a very long time before
    real people start coming, if they ever do...

    i noticed wp does not have any signup confirmations, if they
    had this avail, then your registrations would be almost zero!
    or install caphcha...

    Curiously, MultiSite handles this a LOT better than single site :/
