I was doing some work tonight on a new website. In case you are not aware, the internet is full of Spam Bots. These are computers connected to the internet searching for anything that remotely resembles an email address. i.e. anything that looks like firstname.lastname@example.org Now this is bad if you are building a website, because you want to make it easy for people to email you, but you don’t want Spam Bots scraping your email address and then sending you links to discount viagra!
I was aware that there are some coding techniques that help you create the email address using Java Script. What this means to you is that your email address will appear on the screen in human readable form, but it is not readable by a Spam Bot (we hope). When I was searching for some code to do this, I found this great website that generates the code for you.
Hope you find this useful when you build your websites.
