Why reCAPTCHA v3

Google reCAPTCHA verifies that whoever is completing a form is not a spammer or a bot. The typical forms that are affected by spam are comment and newsletter signup forms. reCAPTCHA has historically required users to click a checkbox or a selection of images, much to their frustration. Version 3 is invisible to the user and happens in the background. The catch is that it is more complex to implement. This app easily does this for you.

While Shopify already protects most forms with the interactive image version of reCAPTCHA, the comments form is unfortunately exposed. reCAPTCHA can minimise comments you receive from spammers and simple bots.

Spam flagging

Shopify already does a good job at flagging spam posts but unfortunately there is still a lot of imprecision. The reason is that advanced bot circumvent the comment form completely so even using reCAPTCHA spam still goes through. This application flags any comments that were not posted regularly through the comment form as spam.

How to manage blog comments

  1. Set your shop to require comment approval
  2. In the manage comments section save a filter to only show comments that need approval
  3. With spambuster installed you can just ignore the comments marked as spam, no need to waste time deleting them
