First up on our list of the top 3 spam fighting plugins for WordPress is Akismet. This plugin comes installed on all WordPress sites for free. It automatically checks comments to see if they look spam or not. If a comment is marked as spam, you can then review it to see if it’s spam or not. You can get an API key for free to set up Akismet on your personal site or if you have a business or commercial site, you will need a paid subscription to get the API key.
