Spam-free Email Linking

Saw a tweet from Jane Hart about an e-mail address HTML encoder from SiteUp Networks. The idea is to format your e-mail address so that it is NOT readable by an extractor or search engine in an effort to prevent HTML e-mail harvesters from getting your address off your web pages.

LearnTech Newsc4lptnews HTML Encoder will format your E-mail address in a way that IS NOT readable by any E-mail extractor or search engine

I used it (it’s free and very simple) and quickly received some strange-looking (i.e. not easily readable) HTML code that I can use to replace the normal “mailto:” type of an email link.  This is the result.
