The Captcha WordPress plugin allows you to make certain anything logging into your dashboard is in fact a human being.

Internet Marketing Strategy | Captcha Plugin for WordPress Sites

This post is part of a series about the Internet marketing strategy I call Inbound Marketing. It is also part of a sub-series about securing your WordPress website. To access the lead post please click either of the link in the prior sentence.

Overview

There are bad guys on the Internet who perform what are called “password dictionary attacks” on websites in an effort to gain access. This is done thru the use of software bots who try lists of words and combinations of numbers and letters (that list is the “dictionary”).

Zippe.biz helps you generate quality leads for your business through your website.

The one tried and true way to prevent password dictionary attacks is to require something at login that a bot can not do.

This is why the whole concept of Captcha was created. Most Captcha mechanisms requires the user enter some characters from a blurry image which a bot can not properly parse.

The Captcha WordPress Plugin does it differently. It requires you answer a simple math problem, but in the problem one of the terms is represented as a number while the other is represented as a word.

It might be:

Three + 8 = _____

Where as part of the login process you have to enter your username, your password, and the number 11.

However

The plugin allows you to require the Captcha for people leaving comments and I recommend you NOT do that. Instead, to eliminate SPAM comments, install, activate, and enable the Akismet plugin which protects your site against SPAM comments.
