Outdated but useful
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin doesn't seem to be maintained anymore though I could get it working. In order to initially set it up, I used the URL https://www.google.com/recaptcha/ rather than the one to which it directed me [it was broken]. Then, I clicked Get reCAPTCHA. You'll need to login and there you can access the site key (public) and secret key (private).

Lastly, the label formatting in IE looked terrible so I commented it out of the php code.
$html .= '<label>CAPTCHA code</label>';

Once it started working though, it was very helpful. The only similar plugins I found were paid.

Simple, but miss total front-end control
By , for WP 3.5.1

Very simple and functional, but can be a little hard for beginners since the API key is not inserted on frontend. Thanks for share.
