One of the first plug-ins I installed, before I had barely grasped what a plugin is. It has worked effectively and quietly in the background ever since and was incredibly easy to use. I consider it one of the basic 'must have' tools to protect a site.
Very highly valued and effective plugin. Love it!
Used for years on many websites. Perfect
Thank you dev team
I use it for all my projects, personal and professional.
Must have for every WordPress website.
We are using Akismet since the very beginning and it worked just fine all these years. Just a few spams easy to isolate and just that. Smooth activity free from spams!
Well, it's bundled with WP.
Thank you for all the effort in collecting all data to help fight spam. awesome approach to assassinate spam.
I've only been using Akismet for about a week on my 5-month-old blog, and i'm amazed at how well it works. I've been getting often 10 or more spam comments per day, and now i don't have to spend time on the chore of trashing them all; so far i've only had two get through to the approval stage, and not a single false positive. The "empty spam folder" button is a real time-saver too!
The plug-in is very good at blocking nasty spam comments. Highly recommend it to anyone new to blogging.
It's understood that any spam filter has some margin of error. But I think that where this one self-reports an accuracy of 98% on my blog, this is actually an accurate estimate. Which is impressive. I think that this plugin is an essential part of my blog.
I've seen many spam filters do much worse than that.
just great thanks
