One of the most annoying things to date have been these stupid spambots coming by and emailing me with my contact form information.
They send emails talking about cheap nike air max, louis vuitton, ray ban sunglasses and with an email coherence only a spambot could achieve.
The best WordPress plugin I have found to keep them away to date is called: Honeypot but it only works if you use WordPress Contact Form 7.
How it works is that it adds an invisible field that only spambots can see and if they fill in this field (because they can never resist filling in all the fields), the message gets discarded immediately.
It’s ingenious because REAL messages won’t even see the field to fill it in as it’s only seen by spambots and real messages will get through.
I put it in about a month ago and I haven’t received a SINGLE spam email message yet.
Oh and by the way, here are 10 other essential wordpress plugins you might find as handy as I have.
