"Yes! Sometimes the image is the easiest thing to go with. I get those "please remove our link" things all the time. Most are connected with an infographic or image. This is why Google came up with their disavow tool - so a site can better control it's image in Google's eyes. "Links are one of the most well-known signals we use to order search results. By looking at the links between pages, we can get a sense of which pages are reputable and important, and thus more likely to be relevant to our users. This is the basis of PageRank, which is one of more than 200 signals we rely on to determine rankings. Since PageRank is so well-known, it’s also a target for spammers, and we fight linkspam constantly with algorithms and by taking manual action."" - Mike Mueller

Re: UPDATE: Spammy emails in MailChimp - http://areweconnected.com/wordpre...
"Thanks! I think Captcha (and the reCaptcha) certainly has it's place depending on the form. Does it belong on all forms? I don't think so. We all know the less you 'require' on a form the greater the submit rate. For something like my newsletter, which is just a push of the posts here, there's nothing to gain from their efforts (the bad guys) - is there? I think when the form gains them access to something of value to them, Captcha is worth the extra fields. You'll lose some walkaways as expected but only those with a genuine want or need will continue on. My fix is a manual one - I don't necessarily like it for that. Speaking of which - I also had enabled Gravity Forms "honeypot". It's a hidden field that shows to bots, but not humans. I do that on all my forms. It didn't stop the spammers this time (I think because they are human and not bots). On the Wofuu forms - Am I being overly sensitive about spreading emails and other form values on servers I don't know or have control over?" - Mike Mueller

"I have a follow up post coming but... Mailchimp wasn't much help. :( Mailchimp: "I can definitely understand how annoying it can be to have spammy signups. While it is unclear what a spammer may want from being in a list, our developers currently have a few things in the works to help further combat those signups via MailChimp's own hosted form..." I don't think the problem is my form (I use Gravity Forms, App Sumo and the embedded MailChimp form). What form do you use? In my followup post I'll explain how I fixed it on my end (all by myself). It'll be ready next week." - Mike Mueller
"LOL! That's actually just the top 10 things I've been doing. I'm currently editing an Agent's template site (not WordPress) and making some pretty cool changes. Sheila - This post also asks the reader to look at their online presence and make a similar evaluation. I think I know what you do (RE education) but is there other stuff too?" - Mike Mueller
