Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet Web service to see if they look like spam or not.
Akismet seems to be working great. We chose Akismet because of its awesome reputation, it has consistently high ratings and came highly recommended. I only wish that there was a way to track it’s progress. Maybe send a notification that informs us everytime a trackbot is blocked or spam is removed, much like the pop-up blockers on web browsers do.
I use the plugin Akismet for all my WP Blogs.
It's really good against spammers.
I rate 4 stars (and not 5) because of the API key, it's a difficult step for a newbie to get an API key to make akismet work.
Excellent! I had some problems while installing, but now it's working fine.
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
I think Akismet is great BUT sometimes you need to re-run the Check For Spam to get all the spam comments. It is not 100% automatic in that sense. BUT I really like it a lot!
Akismet isn't the perfect spam blocking plugin. Occasionally a legit comment will get filtered into the spam box, but for the most part it works well. It's easy to install, and it's prevented several spam comments from ending up on my blog. I would make sure to set your comments in the Discussion Setting of WordPress to either Comment author must have a previously approved comment or Comment must be manually approved to help cut down on the spam.
Without the plugin, my sites would be swarmed with spam. It's annoying how much spam WP sites get, but I'm thankful Akismet helps. Even though I haven't found a better spam blocker, I still feel like Akismet can improve.
Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
Works great, easy to use.
