How to leave your email id on internet.

By Arpit On Tuesday, February 13, 2007 At 12:06 AM

If you own a website or a blog, it is always advisable to give you email id somewhere in it. You can provide it at ‘About Us’ page or at Contact page. Some times a curious reader may have some doubt or enquiries and in such case email is an excellent way to communicate.
But while leaving your email id on a public page over the net, some precautions should be taken. This is because there are so many automated programs or robots that scan pages in search of email id. And once they find your email id, your mail box will be heavily spammed. Although email service providers; like Gmail are well equipped to protect your inbox from spam mails, but still why to take a chance?

Also you can use the following trick while leaving your mail id in the comment space of blogs or on public forums and message boards.

1# Instead of giving your mail id as give it as xyz[at]abc[dot]com.
This is because most of the automated bots search for characters @ and . while scanning for email ids. So when you use this [at] and [dot] notation, your email id is only readable by human, not by computer programs.

2# On your website or blog you can display your image graphically by a small image.
Like :

That’s my email id.:)
The graphical display is a well known method and is followed by many sites in word verification or captcha verification.
