Protection from Spam ⛔
SeoSamba has always made protecting you from spam a top priority. We use cutting-edge technology to prevent spammers from taking over your inbox.
Anti-Spam Bot Technology from Google
Recaptcha helps protect your website from spammers using a Turing test to help tell humans and bots apart that must be completed correctly before a form submission on your website. It’s a technology that was developed and is supported by Google for the purpose of blocking bots.
Additional Spam Bot Blocking Technology from SeoSamba
Google’s recaptcha has about a 98% success rate at blocking spam bots. In order to block nearly 100% of machine-spammers, SeoSamba uses a “Honey Pot” - a hidden field in the code of your forms on your websites that is visible for bot-spammers only. Once this hidden field populates, our system silently discards the spam message.
An Extra Layer of Services from SeoSamba
Unfortunately, a lot of the spam you receive is actually coming from real humans sitting in front of a web browser and spamming people all day (talk about boring...). The Recaptcha feature is ineffective in these cases, since it can only block bots.
It takes a real person to fight back against human spammers. Each month, SeoSamba’s anti-spam team manually reviews forms submitted through your website to find and flag spam submissions one-by-one. We then add the spammers’ email address, domain, and IP address(es) to our blacklist system to prevent them from emailing you again from that IP. While this definitely helps, it's a never ending battle because spammers can quickly and easily obtain a new IP address.
Predictive Spam Blocking Technology
In response to this, SeoSamba built an intelligent automated anti-spam system that uses data from previously blacklisted ip’s to instantly block and blacklist similar ip’s on future submitted forms.
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Good SEO
Are you getting tons of spam? Sure, it’s pretty annoying but, it actually means that you’ve got really good SEO on your website. No spam means no one is finding your website. That’s not good either, right? Lots of spam means that lots of people are finding your site online, which is what we want. What it boils down to, is that getting a lot of spam form submissions is actually a positive event, because it means you’re easy to find online.
That’s our wrap up for new and updated features from SeoSamba for June 2021. Please visit us online at seosamba.com for a full list of features or for information on how to contact us.
