WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that is vulnerable to spam attacks. Here are some ways to protect your WordPress website from spam:

  1. Use an anti-spam plugin: Install an anti-spam plugin like Akismet, which is built into WordPress, or other popular plugins such as WP-SpamShield, Spam Protection by CleanTalk, or Antispam Bee. These plugins will help to filter out spam comments and trackbacks automatically.
  2. Enable comment moderation: WordPress allows you to enable comment moderation so that all comments must be approved by a moderator before they appear on your website. This can help to prevent spam comments from appearing on your site.
  3. Use CAPTCHA or reCAPTCHA: Adding a CAPTCHA or reCAPTCHA to your comment section can help to prevent automated spam bots from leaving comments on your site.
  4. Close comments on older posts: Older posts are more vulnerable to spam comments. Consider closing comments on older posts or setting a time limit for comments to be open.
  5. Limit the number of links in comments: Many spammers will try to include links in their comments. You can limit the number of links allowed in comments by adjusting your WordPress settings.
  6. Use a honeypot: A honeypot is a hidden field in your comment form that bots can’t resist filling out, but real users won’t see. If the field is filled out, the comment is automatically marked as spam.

By implementing these measures, you can protect your WordPress site from spam and keep your site’s comments section clean and user-friendly.
