    Hello, @lmnetco

    There are a few reasons for this:

    With the indexing of your web-site by the search systems, appearance of external links and better search results position, your web-site attracts more and more spambots.

    Non-transparent protection systems like CAPTCHA or question/answer, that don’t have spam attacks stats, don’t let you see the whole picture, or the picture is incomplete.

    Counting methods for spam attacks and spam bots are different for different systems, thus the diversity appears. We seek to provide detailed stats.

    Best regards.

    Hello @lmnetco,

    Some time ago, many people believed that anti-virus companies create viruses. With the rise of Internet literacy, they understood that this is not so.

    Based on your words, your site is relatively new, so spambots didn’t know about it, but when search bots will index your site and spambots also will be known about your website.

    You must know if your website has been indexed it will immediately become the target for spammers and hackers. This does not depend what plugins, CMS do you use. So, you must be ready to protect your website yourself or by using 3rd parties plugins.

    Our goal to make the Internet safer and get webmasters simplest and most useful solutions to prevent online threats. We spent more than 5 years to make our spam protection technology one of the best.

    Thank you!
