Activating Akimet API Key for WordPress This short report explains how to activate the Wordress Akismet plugin and add a plugin named Tweetmeme. These are simple plugins that you need to activate early in the configuration of your blog or website for functionality and content syndication. These are some of the things I am learning from my mentor, Alex Jeffreys. First, a little about Akismet. Akismet comes already installed with the Wordpress platform and all you have to do is sign up for a Wordpress API Key and activate the plugin. Just follow the instructions in the plugins section to get your API Key. Save this in a notepad file for future reference. You will only have one API Key that you use for any new websites you may happen to launch in the future. What’s it do? “Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not.” Instructions can be found under the Plugins section of your dashboard, right under the “Appearance” setting: Dashboard > Plugins Copy and paste your API Key in the box, check the below that and click the “update options” and you are done. One thing I need to mention is that I use the terms website and blog interchangeably. For our purposes they are the same thing. We are just using the popular and powerful Wordpress platform for content management of our websites. Click the image below to watch a video.
