Top 3 WordPress Anti-Spam Plugins Q4 2012

Here’s my “Top 3 WordPress Anti-Spam Plugins” for Q4 2012:


AP HoneyPot WordPress Plugin

  •  AP HoneyPot Plugin allows you to verify IP addresses of clients connecting to your blog against the Project Honey Pot database. Based on Jan Stępień‘s http:BL WordPress Plugin.

Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin

  •  The Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin checks against Spam Databases to to prevent spammers from registering or making comments.

WP No-Bot Question

  •  Simple question that blocks most spambots (and paid robots) by making them answer a common sense question


It’s what I use on my blog in conjunction with CloudFlare and my personal customizations. Although, I’ve replaced WP No-Bot Question with my own variant called No-Spam IP Geolocation, but it only works if the domain is behind the CloudFlare service and if IP Geolocation is enabled in the CloudFlare-settings of that particular domain.

In any case, when these three plugins are used concurrently I have had no spam going through to my blog at all. A tip for using WP No-Bot Question is that you should set a question that is difficult and not widely used, thus lessening the chances that the automated spambots have the answer stored in their database.

Short and simple.
