Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet Web service to see if they look like spam or not.
A great anti-spam plugin! It does what you expect.
BTW a good extra feature to keep your users informed is https://wordpress.org/plugins/akismet-notifier notifying the users that a comment posted was considered as SPAM if so.
I use the latest wp version!
I have no spam except some message (maybe 5 a month)
Great plugin... Thanks to author for developing this wonderful plugin..
I am using this at my site. [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]
Its working fine..
It could be theme-related (I'm using Atahualpa 3.7.15), but Akismet 3.01. disables the Add Media button when writing or editing posts. It also disables the quick lookup for tags when I try to enter the first letters in a tag I want to add. Consequently, I cannot use Akismet on my blog.
Akismet performs a mundane, but necessary, function, and it does it with aplomb. It's free for personal use and does an admirable job. I highly recommend it.
excellent, works perfectly
I love this plugin and use it on every sites.
El Plugin es muy útil y en mis webs a desaparecido todo rastro de spam. Hace años que no recibo un sólo comentario spam en mi sitio gracias a este plugin.
El único defecto que encuentro es el registro. Pienso que es un poco tedioso tener que registrarse y seguir todos los pasos para conseguir la clave API.
De todas formas vale la pena y recomiendo instalarlo
A must have plugin, catches really all spam!
Best spam plugin in the word. If you don't use this you are not very smart
