View Full Version : Code to prevent spiders from reading email addresses

Is there some type of code that can be used on a website to prevent spiders from collecting email addresses in this way? What I usually do is set up a forwarding address on my sites to my real email address, so that when the forwarding address is picked up and getting spam, I just change the forwarding address... but this can get redundent, and those people who save the forwarding address in their "address books" can't send me email anymore...

So is there some type of html/php/javascript/shtml code that will allow people to email me on my website without the usual "mailto:" command?

I use a simple javascript for that purpose. Seems to be working so far.
