WangGuard Plugin: Protect WordPress Blog from users registration Spam

One of the major and common problem in wordpress blogs are issue of Spamming, automated bots, Sploggers and  who create accounts with fake details and copied content posts which are not original in many cases. Few days back I have created one page for guest bloggers to write unique articles as “Write for Us”. After two days, when I login to my blog, I shocked because there are 276 Contributor registrations and nearly 400+ subscriber registrations. I just started to open few profiles to check who is that.

There is no details about registrants, only fake emails with non-sense articles. I have contacted through their registered email. No response and I have decided my blog becomes spamming.  Immediately I searched for more information “How to protect my wordpress blog from fake sploggers”.  In this few security plugins helped me lot. Here I am discussing a free and special plugin to protect your wordpress blog from bots, Sploggers and Spammers.
