Important Update:

Wealthy Affiliate hosting includes spam comment protection at server level. If your website is hosted here then you don't need an anti-spam plugin.

If you're using a different hosting company then I recommend Antispam Bee to protect your website from spam comments.


Akismet is NOT free for commercial use

Because we are in the business of internet marketing we could be breaking their terms of service to use Akismet on our websites without paying a premium price. It all depends on their interpretation of 'personal sites' vs 'commercial sites'.

Antispam Bee is my choice alternative for blocking spam comments.

It blocks spam comments without the need for captchas. According to their FAQs it's free of charge and ad-free forever, even for commercial projects.

Go to Plugins==> Add New and type 'antispam bee' into the search box (without the quotes).

You can find more information at https://wordpress.org/plugins/antispam-bee/

Thanks for watching.

As always I'm here to help you,

Thanks Marion. I have 4 websites and I've been using Tommy Dillard's training for getting my Akismet Keys .... Is what his video teaching us illegal?

It's only breaching the terms of service if we use our websites for commercial applications such as affiliate marketing.

I am always amazed the people who put forward work and don't respect themselves enough to ask for compensation for their effort. I will try this for no reason other than I trust you Marion.

Sometimes we have to give stuff away so people will try it and then buy another product which we've created. If the makers of Antispam Bee have a premium plugin which will do a specific job for me then I'll trust them that it will be a good plugin.
