My business website was created by WordPress. I have a blog through WordPress and a contact us now feature. Of late I have been getting lots of spam from contact us and blog responses which seem to be done by bots (link building). What do I need to do or adjust to fix/limit this stuff? Appreciate the help.

you never type your email in text on a webpage, you should make a email GIF, a image of your email text, the bots can't read. Or a questions form that emails to you..

There are oodles of anti-spam plugins for Wordpress; Akismet being the most popular.

I have a contact us setup like that. Guess I can call my admin and see what they think. Appreciate the insight.
