    Question Link-Spam issue!

    I only got my site online now for a few days and already have been spammed! 2 words have been linkspammed.

    Does anyone know a solution to this?

    Please provide some details. We can't help you without them.

    Can you provide a link to the site? What two words? Etc.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.

    Hi WolfShade,

    The words are 'computer' and 'digital' and they have a pop-up from Ziinga coming up about digital supply like cameras and smartphones.

    I have put the link under my profile - it got removed from a previous post so my understanding is that it's not allowed on here...or let me pm you with it

    Thx

    Thanks Philip but really, I know why I get spammed but how do I resolve this issue?
    The link provided only advices of how to apply captcha or mathcha...but as far as I know that only prevents email spamming...or am I wrong?

    Dangit.. security settings, here, are so tight that the site is blocked and I can't view it.

    Someone mentioned, recently, a method for significantly reducing spam attacks. I'll PM you with what was suggested.

    I couldn't find the word "computer" on any of your pages at http://www.enjoydesigns.net

    And the only use of the word "digital" that I found is here:
    Personalised Print-work
    Fancy an original Christmas Card? Or maybe a cool Year Calendar with your favourite pictures? No need to look any further. EnjoyDesigns can make any type of personalised print-work for you - or maybe you prefer to 'post out' digital cards this time? No problem at all!
    and there is no "link spam" on it.

    Are you sure that the link spam isn't occurring on YOUR OWN COMPUTER, only?

    That is, you somehow managed to pick up an advertising virus?

    Try using a *good* ad blocker/antivirus/anti-malware on your own machine and see if it doesn't go away.
