Anti-bot Verification

    What is anti-bot verification?

    Anti-bot verification helps prevent automated spam posts, which are posts created by scripts or programs instead of people.

    Why should I use anti-bot verification?

    Anti-bot verification will protect your customers from being hacked by stopping automated scripts from posting comments, voting on links, adding friends, and even logging into accounts.

    How does it work?

    Anti-bot verification is a simple way to make sure the person doing action on your site isn’t a script or program, but a real person. There are many ways of verifying that you’re not a robot, from asking questions about yourself to playing games before proceeding with an action.

    When is the best time to use it?

    The best time to use anti-bot verification is every time someone wants to leave a comment, vote on something, or post other actions on your site. By preventing automated spam posts you’ll be helping increase the life span of your Linkedin profile, Facebook page, Twitter feed, etc. by making sure spammers can’t fill your page with tags and links to other pages.

    What can happen if I don’t use this service?

    If you don’t use anti-bot services then your site will be hit by automated spam posts which could result in a bad reputation for your business, or even have other effects on your other social media pages. For example, if a script got into a commenting account of yours, it would start leaving spammy comments on famous profiles, news articles, etc., which might lead to websites deciding to shut down your profile since you’re breaking their TOS (terms of service). Bot activity can also lead to skewed analytics, which may affect the success of your business decisions when using bot-influenced data to inform them.
