Spambots and how to block them
Last Updated: January 16, 2014
I had a particular spammer that kept registering as a user on my site. I finally added a plugin, IP Blacklist. When I logged in today, I saw 11 attempted hacks. They show up in red in the sidebar of admin. When I checked the IP address in google, they all came up as spam bots. The list give you the option to just click on Block IP, and it blacklists them for you. Until today, I never new this was happening. The users I knew about, but not the bots. I recommend this highly.

A little Background I have an Affiliate blog hosted here. I also have an ecommece site hosted elsewhere, I used Wordpress on both. The problems started with the site that is NOT hosted here. I changed from WP eCommerce plugin to WooCommerce plugin, as was recommended by several people. I decided to offer a review here, as there are certain things that are important both when choosing themes as well as plugins. WordPress's own support site tells you when you are having issues to change
My site that is hosted here has gotten REALLY slow. Am I alone?

It started two days ago. I do lots of my work in wee hours of the morning (midnight to 7 am Eastern time USA) to try to avoid peak traffic times. It got so bad that I could not even get the "edit page" to open a page on my pc. The site was also very slow loading on my tablet and my iphone. I finally installed W3 Cache, but it still is slow. I also do not know when maintenance periods occur. Does anybody"
Social Networking gave me my best traffic day ever!

I added a guest article on my blog yesterday and then saw it posted on all my networks. Wow. I had 66 views that stayed and went to multiple pages yesterday. I thought I might be spinning my wheels getting all the networks setup. http://borncaptivating.com/?p=520

http://wp.me/s3ZEZv-healing Well, in the last post and this one, I am really feeling like I am walking naked along the boardwalk. My goal was to be real and personal. I reviewed this post with my daughter. I wanted to put in pictures, but wondered if it would take away from the message. Please let me know what you think.
