reCaptcha vs IP blocking To Stop Spam Signup?
Back To Top
Spam signups either they are done via humans or bots creating many issues for business, forums and webmasters. With my web developer friends, I recently made a small blog which also has signup and contact us option, but I am amazed we are getting tons of spam or marketing emails each day. Such things are not only wasting our time but also making us sick. When we searched online, then we find several tips to stop spam signups like this article https://www.business2community.com/online-marketing/stop-spam-signups-dead-tracks-01146555
. It is suggesting about the asking phone verifications, custom questions and reCaptcha. However, in our opinion, the use of phone verification etc. would decrease our potential visits. That's why I am thinking about reCaptcha. Do you think we should use reCaptcha v2 or v3?
On the other hand, my friends are also suggesting a simple solution for blocking the spammed IPs. Yes, we found this video
very helpful in this regard. According to my friends, it wouldn't only safeguard us from spam but also wouldn't affect our traffic. Do you think we picked the right strategy? What about if people use VPN and starting signups again? All in all, we are confused and also not willing to lose our traffic. Please share your views or suggestions if you have experience in this field.
