Eliminating Spam on Your Website’s Forms
When I set up a client’s site, it’s nice to have a contact form that a visitor can use to connect with the business, especially one that works on keeping spam out of your inbox.
I put my clients on the WordPress platform. I like it because it’s easy to customize, it’s great with managing content, and has a ton of great plugins that I can use to help make the site interactive.
One plugin that I use a lot is Contact Form 7. You can see an example of it below. When you fill out the form, I’ll receive it in my inbox.
Now the problem with having a form like this on any website is that there are a lot of creepy marketers who will try really hard to get your attention. So your inbox and spam folder can get filled up pretty quickly with emails from people asking to help “improve your website” (hey…that’s my job!), “refinance your home”, or “improve your sex life with…” I think you get the picture.
