Hi,

I just wanted to ask if there is a really simple way to do this?

I have seen one site where they ask the user to do a simple math test (8+1) or such .

I was wondering if anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks

Stuart

There are already a bunch of libraries and services out there that can help with that.  They are generally called "CAPTCHAs".

As for a recommendation, my favorite is ReCAPTCHA by Google (https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/index.html)

do this with your server so you know what to send to the client.
with your server, you will be able to serve a different content than you Single Page Application which not "work" with robot.

And just to add to Phil's excellent reply - don't make one yourself. There are plenty of angular components to do it for you like https://github.com/VividCortex/angular-recaptcha

Basically what you want a robot to index you can put in meta tags.
