Hiding your email address
Leaving your email address on a page for all to see is just inviting spam and even using the 'mailto' link will make it easy for spiders to find.
The normal HTML link is
Spiders can search a site by key words so you can see that searching with '@' will give them 2 hits and searching with 'mailto' will give them one.
To fool them we need to move the @ so that it is not with your actual email address.
For this we will need 2 variables 'email_start' and 'email_end' and a document.write() statement.
If you wanted to actually show your email address on the page instead of 'email me' it could be done in the same way but usually a link is all you need.
Naturally it could also be a graphic.
Another handy thing you could do is to pass a variable to the script making it possible to change the 'email me' to something more fitting to the page.
I'll show you what I mean.
Let us add another variable to the script before saving it as 'hide_email.js'
We will call it 'email_show' and will not assign a value to it.
Now in order to put your email on a page you will need to assign a value to 'email_show' and then call the script 'hide_email.js'
