Dealing With Referral Spam

Mar 31, 2006

Over the past week or two, I've noticed increasing amounts of bogus referral links in my website statistics. This so called "referral spam" has nearly gotten out of control, so I'm employing yet another WordPress plugin (Referrer Bouncer) to combat this plague. The spammed referral links are interesting: poker sites, ring tone sites, and even "adult" sites. We'll see how well this works out.

Posting may be slow over the upcoming days. I'm very busy with something that I'll talk more about soon.
