Safe email address

Problem: You’d like legitimate folks to be able to send you email but don’t want to expose your literal email address to web-crawlers that search for such information to use for spamming operations.

Here’s one simple method to keep your email address from such types of gathering; it hides your actual address inside of a link.

Type into your weblog the following code:

<a href=”mailto:youremailaddress“>visibletext</a>

DO NOT COPY/PASTE FROM THIS CODE-TEXT HERE.

Change “youremailaddress” to your actual address and change “visibletext” into whatever text you’d like to be displayed.  When a real person clicks this link, it will take them effortlessly to an email page!
