I named blog spam catcher Akismet as one of the products I couldn’t live without in a post a few days ago. Today we hit the magic number – Akismet has captured over 1 million spam comments and trackbacks, just on TechCrunch. That’s over 1 million pieces of bogus content that we didn’t have to read, sort through manually and delete.
Akismet is a relatively easy plugin to install if you use WordPress, and there are developer tools available if you want to use it on another blogging platform or website. If you have a blog, and don’t know about Akismet, take a minute and check it out.
