The A-kis-met WordPress Plugin is one of the WordPress Plugins that your website should never be without. No-one likes spam on their website and this plugin does an amazing job at fighting away spam. If you're not using this plugin, then there's something wrong with you 🙂 (seriously)
A-kis-met is probably the only WordPress Spam protection plugin to use on your website when it comes to protecting your comments from those annoying spammers. Developed by https://automattic.com/ this plugin is our first WordPress plugin to score 100% across the board. It’s simply fantastic and works a charm to protect against comment spam and keep your website looking good and human.
Your first use of akismet will need you to create an account with them but once you have your API key you’re up and running and you can quickly activate the plugin.
It’s all done by the akismet servers leaving you noting to worry about apart from sit back and enjoy the time saved by not having to weed out SPAM comments on your website manually. The perfect set of features. Super powerful and simple to use.
You may get a couple of false positives (comments spammed that are genuine) but that’s very rare and the time saved is fantastic
There’s not much to say here. This WordPress plugin runs and maintains itself well. The details about how this plugin actually protects your website against SPAM is probably well above anyones head. For more details on how it does what it does you can check out the information page over at ak-is-met here.
No documentation is really needed for this plugin, but if you need it it’s fantastic!! Very detailed and super easy to navigate. One of the best WordPress plugins out there for help!!
It’s just so cool to know your website’s SPAM comments are protected by a-kis-met and it has really helped us protect our own comments. A great plugin and it’s no surprise it’s packaged with WordPress as one of the plugins as standard.
Bonus – Scalable SPAM solution
A-kis-met is free for 50,000 checks a month so if your website is having more comment traffic than this then you may be better off using a different plugin completely for comments (such as disqus or even Facebook comments) but even if you start going higher and love the ease that WordPress comments give you then you can upgrade your account with some simple pricing in place.
We don’t expect much less from the producers of a-kis-met – it’s great! and we recommend it to be used on every single WordPress website out there.
