Akismet Site Gets an Update

Akismet is a hosted web service that saves you time by automatically detecting comment and trackback spam. Each time a new comment, trackback, or pingback is added to your site it’s submitted to the Akismet web service which runs hundreds of tests on the comment and returns a thumbs up or thumbs down. There are free and paid for versions.

It’s hosted on Akismet’s own servers, users get access to it through plugins and an API. WordPress is the most popular plugin, but there are 24 plugins and 14 libraries to choose from. To use Akismet you first need to register an API key.
