I started a WordPress blog a while ago and for the past month or so, I have been the target of comment spam.

The most obvious solution? Use CAPTCHA against bots.

Google has recently updated its CAPTCHA (the tick in the box). Is there such a plugin I can integrate with WordPress comments?

  • Captcha's are obtrusive. Look into finding a honeypot solution. Another solution could be using something like Akismet.

Try the Wordpress plugin Google Captcha (reCAPTCHA) by BestWebSoft


In the settings you get to choose the captcha version. (the tick in the box would be version 2).
