There are two main types of spam on WordPress websites: Comment Spam and Membership Spam (if your website has a feature that allows public registration).

To anti-comment spam and membership spam, you can use the Akismet plugin that was created to prevent WordPress website spamming tools. This plugin sends all comments to Akismet servers, which process them using complex algorithms. If the comment is confirmed as spam, Akismet will remove it automatically.
