A Custom Measure of Akismet Performance

Just a little something for the weekend.

Chris Hemedinger, a technical architect at SAS, recently published a great post on his personal analysis of Akismet’s effectiveness across an entire network of company blogs.

He uses his own company’s software to connect to his WordPress database and aggregate data from all Akismet-protected sites on the network. He then produces some really interesting charts and graphs for the purpose of analyzing spam activity and Akismet’s performance. Chris also makes it clear that having to manually deal with all that spam can be quite time-consuming.

And we tend to agree. :)
