Additional Strategies to Block Spammy Leads

Aside from blocking the email domains that are known to be spammy or to yield bad leads, here are some other strategies you can implement to mitigate this issue and ensure you are only paying for legit lead submissions:


Upgrade to reCAPTCHA v3: If you’re using reCAPTCHA v2, consider upgrading to reCAPTCHA v3, which provides a better user experience by analyzing user behavior and assigning a score to filter out bots.

2. Honeypot Fields

Implement Honeypots: Add hidden fields to your form that are invisible to human users but visible to bots. If these fields are filled out, it indicates a bot submission, and the form can be rejected.

3. Form Field Customization

Use Conditional Logic: Implement conditional logic to only show certain form fields when specific criteria are met. This can help deter bots that are set up to fill out standard forms.

Custom Field Names: Use non-standard field names to confuse bots that are programmed to fill out common fields like “name” or “email.”

4. Email Verification

Double Opt-In: Require users to verify their email address before the form submission is completed. This can significantly reduce spam submissions.

5. IP Address Blocking

Block Suspicious IPs: Monitor the IP addresses of form submissions and block those that exhibit suspicious behavior or come from known spam sources.

6. Third-Party Tools

Use Third-Party Tools: Integrate advanced spam filtering tools such as Akismet or CleanTalk, which can provide additional layers of protection against spam.

Behavior Analysis: Implement tools that analyze user behavior (e.g., mouse movements, time spent on page) to determine if the submission is likely from a human or a bot.

7. Server-Side Validation

Validate on Server-Side: Implement server-side validation to check form submissions for common spam indicators, such as multiple submissions from the same IP address in a short time frame.

8. PPC Campaign Adjustments

Refine Targeting: Review and refine your PPC targeting settings to exclude regions or demographics that are more likely to generate spammy submissions.

Negative Keywords: Use negative keywords to filter out irrelevant traffic that might be contributing to spam submissions.
