Akismet is a fantastic little plugin for WordPress that helps you keep your comments and contact form submissions free of spam. We’re big fans of this plugin at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, so we created a sister plugin that allows you to control Akismet from the admin screens on your own self-hosted site.

Checks all comments and filters out those that appear to be spam

Akismet spam protection is the leading plugin for WordPress and bbPress, protecting over 25 million sites from spam. Akismet uses advanced artificial intelligence to identify spam, allowing you to spend your time doing more important things. This plugin automatically checks all comments on your site and keeps the ones that look legitimate in your moderation queue. Say goodbye to spam, and start spending as little time as possible moderating content and participating more freely in discussions.

Each comment has a status history, so you can see which were captured or cleared by Akismet, and which were spammed or unspammed by a moderator

Akismet filters unwanted comments from your blog, using a combination of automatic and manual reviews to keep your blog clear of spam. With over 82 million users worldwide, Akismet is the most widely-used WordPress plugin for comment spam protection. We work hard to protect your site, so you can focus on creating great content.

Akismet is a powerful, easy-to-use protective service that keeps your site protected from spam. It keeps your site out of the junk folder and helps you see what comments are real, and which are spam. Akismet uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to learn what is spam, and what is legit.

In the comment body, URLs are displayed to uncover hidden or deceptive links

To reduce comment spam, Akismet uses your IP address to calculate a reputation score for each comment. Previously, this information was shown in the comment form but due to data mining concerns and feedback from users, Akismet now only shows reputation scores inline on comments that receive a bad reputation.

The amount of authorized comments for each user is visible to moderators

You can enable Akismet to see/approve comments made by people who have previously submitted comments that have been published, bypassing the moderation queue. If a new user has not been authorized by any moderators, they will be put in the moderation queue and an email will be sent to your moderator contact with a link to approve or refuse their comment.
