Hide Your website Email Address From Spam Bots
Posted by fareed shakir on August 9th, 2019
You want to use your email address which means your viewers have a way to contact you if they have any comments or questions. So you need to put a "mailto: inch link on your webpage.
The problem is that several methods that spammers use to obtain email addresses is to send a robot out to the internet whoever primary purpose is to find email addresses. The spambot does this by looking at the HTML html coding that the web browser uses to show the webpage. It then saves the email address it finds after "mailto: inch.
The two most common methods of "hiding" the email address:
Munging. In this method, the email address is not put in a link. Rather it is purportedly hidden from the bots by a replacement of words for differing of the address. Example: johndoe AT hotmail DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION com
These methods no longer work.
These methods may have worked when they were first introduced, but you need to never underrate the brains of the cyber-terrorist amp emails who program the spambots. There are new bots that can decode both of these email encryption techniques.
These two methods by no means exhaust the number of choices. A Google search on "hide email address" arises over two million results. Even discounting duplicate methods, there are undoubtedly quite a few clever techniques available.
So what can i do now?
Without going through all of the Google entries, I can predict beyond a reasonable doubt that the method I take advantage of myself does a better job of protecting your email address than any other. How can i be so sure? Because I doubt that any hacker would have the time or skill to write a pvp bot that would allow him to grab my email address -- it's that well hidden!
