Detecting robots?

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

I'm not sure the author is about captcha but about how robot are crawling its SPA which is based on Javascript so currently Google can't index its site currently... maybe I'm wrong ..

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