From time to time Keap users will notice that their forms are being targeted by spam bots, it appears as if your web forms are being submitted – but the contact details are either complete garbage, or some bots will use junk names paired with actual scraped email addresses.

This process is more than just annoying, it diverts your focus and energy and can measurably hurt your ability to reach the people who want to hear from you.

How do I stop web form spam inside Keap?

So, how do you resolve it? There are a few manual methods, you can use a hidden ‘honeypot’ field, or the native CAPTCHA option (more on those options here); but every time I see this question asked one option emerges as the clear favorite. SpamKill.

SpamKill is a inexpensive tool that was built specifically to solve this problem – and it does so masterfully. This video features a demo of how you can use SpamKill to update Keap Web Form code into spam-proof armor.

So that’s the process – clone your existing form, take the new code and pass it through SpamKill to get an updated embed code – add that embed code to your site, publish, and you’re good to go.

Don’t forget to remove the old form by unpublishing or deleting it; otherwise it’s still vulnerable to spam submissions by those pesky bots.
