I LOVE EMAIL SPAMMERS, AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO!
Dealing with Email Spam | Getting lots of email spam? You might be interested in knowing this means your website is getting exposure to the Web. On the other hand, if you are a business that wants visitors, then this is a good thing. Of course, you have to deal with the good, the bad, and the ugly in life. Specifically, in this case, ‘the bad and the ugly’ is having email spammers and marketing companies finding you as well.
HOW DO EMAIL SPAMMERS FIND YOU
If you are listed in Web directories and search engines, spammers can easily find you. Belonging to any online mailing lists, newsletters and blogs, and forums, spammers and marketers are finding you through these online channels. When you own a website or multiple websites, spammers will bombard your email addresses based on your web address and other email domain name address found on your website pages.
INSTALLING SECURITY SCRIPTS
You can have a web developer install security scripts in all your web forms. This system requires users to enter a random code in any web form before hitting the submit button. This helps to cuts down on most spam. Doing this, however, makes it a little more difficult for someone to fill out your web-based form. Also see: How to Deal with Email Spam
uSING A CAPTCHA SCRIPT
reCAPTCHA is a CAPTCHA system designed to establish that computers are human. Google offers a reCAPTCHA free service that protects your site from spam and abuse.
FILTERING ALL INCOMING EMAIL
As a business owner, I prefer not to have any blocks or hurdles between a potential customer and me.
When you have any security script installed in your web form, all it takes is one entry mistake, and the form submission will fail and ask you to try again. This can be highly frustrating for someone in a hurry, prone to keyboard mistakes, or having difficulty seeing their screen up close. If you want customers to contact you, it’s best to keep it simple. I would rather see my inbox filled with 100 spam emails and two new website customer inquiries than have no customer leads at all.
My message to the spammers and marketers: ‘Bring it on… because I have the fastest delete keystroke in town’.
