Akismet or Antispam Bee for WordPress Spam Solution


  1. Hi Pradeep,

    Did you find the spam comments dried up immediately? I installed antispam bee a few days ago but am still getting a lot of spam comments. I installed a captcha field for comments, too, but they’re still getting through. Odd.

    1. Hi Richard,

      Yes, the spam comments dried up immediately after installing Antispam Bee. I think it should have controlled one of the filters that Akismet was letting off.

      I am not sure if it helps, but do you have both the plugins activated? I had both plugins activated on mine and that’s how it worked perfectly but I am not really sure if using multiple plugins made the difference.

      1. Thanks, Pradeep. I don’t have both activated. Perhaps that’s the way forward.

  2. Hi Pradeep,

    I use Antispam Bee since years on different site. Sadly I have exactly the same problem you describe with Akismet since a few weeks. Akismet is no alternative for me, as it do not fulfil data privacy issues in the amount I need here in Austria.

  3. Hey,
    I used Antispam Bee since years and was very satisfied. I can’t remember, why I’ve choosen it instead of Akismet.
    But in the past weeks, I had the same problem. A lot of spam with (maybe) russian content flooded my blog. That’s why I have activated the option to check every comment before publishing it.

  4. Antispam Bee is amazing. Better than Akismet because it stops spam from ever appearing in your comments list. With Akismet, I had to delete dozens of spam comments. With Antispam Bee, I receive only legitimate comments and no spam comments ever went through. Great plugin!

  5. Hello, a few years ago I had around 2000 spams a day. Similar to yours. Since using Antispam Bee, I am very satisfied. But since I don’t have English pages and my goal is only local (Slovenia), I blocked spammers from certain countries. Personally, I don’t turn Akismet on anymore. I wish you all the best
