    Upload the Akismet plugin to your blog, Activate it, then enter your Akismet.com API key.

    1, 2, 3: You’re done!

    As usual, Akismet saw much less ham go around this month – only about 2.7% of all comments were real comments. We’d need only half of the people in the United States to hold just one piece of paper to cover all the ham comments – there were 147,994,500 total ham comments going through.

    Here’s a chart breaking down the numbers per day:

    In March, Akismet saw 5,426,166,500 spam comments go through. Though this was a rise of 32% since last month, it’s a decrease from last year’s March by 19 percent. It’s been a quiet March.

    Description for people who dont know about the plugin
    Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet Web service to see if they look like spam or not and lets you review the spam it catches under your blog’s “Comments” admin screen.

    Major features in Akismet include:

    Automatically checks all comments and filters out the ones that look like spam.
    Each comment has a status history, so you can easily see which comments were caught or cleared by Akismet and which were spammed or unspammed by a moderator.
    URLs are shown in the comment body to reveal hidden or misleading links.
    Moderators can see the number of approved comments for each user.
    A discard feature that outright blocks the worst spam, saving you disk space and speeding up your site.
