I decided to check my blogger stats. I wish I hadn’t. What I found is a little disturbing. Of course I clicked on one of the referring sites. It was an adult site. Argh. So I went in search of answers. I guess this is a common thing and something they can’t fix because of Twitter links that also pop up in traffic. So here is what I found:
This is also happening to me - it's what brought me here. I'm getting url's like this one: http://goo.gl/BcenQ. I'm definitely not amused.
Any help would be appreciated.
The porn spammers are goosing their traffic, using blog / website owners that publish their Referer Logs, indexed by the search engines. If you're not publishing your logs publicly, the spam is annoying, and that's it.
Does that mean we should publish our logs publicly and what does that mean?
