These Websites Are Members of the SEO Spam Hall of Shame

We use a honeypot. There is a field on the registration page that is hidden using CSS tricks. If it is filled in when registering, the registration is ignored because no human would ever have even seen it.

Captcha’s don’t work. People are paid (tiny amounts) to break them.


Short version yes it has been tried(Along with a variety of other techniques), it failed fairly effectively on a decent scale. Moved on.


I have been searching the Internet for fun and came upon your website. Fabulous post. Thanks a ton for sharing your knowledge! It is great to see that some people still put in an effort into managing their websites.

I am considering leaving the last comment only because it is funny when they do our work for us:)
