Hide your email address on Web Pages

The catch 22 of displaying your email address on your web site is that the spammers will soon find it and your inbox will be filled with Viagra, Ugg boots and Penis enlargement emails even if you are a girl!

I have avoided displaying the emaill address in favour of a contact form but it’s not ideal because some visitors would prefer the standard email approach.

I found a really informative tech guy who’s posted a selection of methods sharing code that will Hide your Email Address on Web Pages.

You only need to have a very basic understanding of coding to implement any of these options.

New Google Adwords spammer

Just a word of warning for Google Adword users. There’s a new email going around trying to catch you out.

The mail will look something like this

No matter what size business you run

Before going to any site from an email link hover over the link to see where it’s directing you, because even though the landing page will look “real” the actual site may be a hoax (like this one is), and looking to get your username and password.
