You have a lot of spam and you heard that it is probably because your email address is written on your website? You’re probably right. “Clear” email addresses can easily recognized by robots. Those robots crawl the web looking for email addresses to stock in a database… and eventually send spam to it.
Be smarter than the spammer
You can avoid you email address to get “stolen” by encoding it. By using an email encoding service (free) you can encode your email address and use this encoded string in your mailto tag instead of you real email address. It is not 100% guaranteed, but it worth it.
