Google Shares Tips to Protect Site from Spam




Jan. 27, 2017 – I don’t know about YOU, but at any point I have like over 500 spammy comments sitting in my moderation queue. BUT I just can’t bring myself to “bulk mark as spam” in case there might be some love from some real readers in there.

Fittingly, Google just shared 10 or so strategies and tips to help protect websites from spam, including:

  • Ensure software and programs are up-to-date
  • Disable comments or use moderation capabilities
  • Use automated systems

Guess I know what I’ll be spending the rest of the day doing!


Pinterest Uses API to Create Engaging Content

Jan. 27, 2017 – Pinterest shares inspirational API usage that creates custom content for each Pinner. Here, profile details are pulled to create custom board with the visitors details combined with your details–whether that be products or services.

Be creative and you could use this to reach clients or customers for your business or organization as well.
