How Does My Email Get Harvested?
The basic idea here is to encode your email address so it will not be easily harvested by robots crawling the Internet in search of email addresses. These robots are based on a script that searches for the “mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org” string (this example will probably be harvested, but it won’t do them any good since the email address is not valid).
There are several ways to hide your email address (such as using <code> around the @ symbol, replacing the @ symbol with its HTML character equivalent (@), and more – but these are not as effective or secure as using js).
emailMe=('inf' + 'o' + '@' + 'Contrac' + 'tWebDe' + 'velopme' + 'nt.com')
document.write('<a href="mailto:' + emailMe + '">' + emailMe + '</a>')
If you’re having trouble getting your emails to reach their destinations, or recipients are letting you know that your emails are frequently ending up in their spam folders, your email address may have ended up on an email blacklist. But have no fear! Our experts show you how to get it removed in our email spam blacklist guide.
