Welcome Back Referrer Karma

Sad to say, but it had to happen. Referrer spam picked back up and I had to re-install .

Now the last thing I want to do is block out any real people. So, if you have any issues with this blog, please let me know so I can fix it right away.

Hopefully the referrer spam can die down after a month or so and then I can remove the plugin, but, till then, it’s gotta say up.

    Hi, I’m trying to use Referrer Karma, but the damned sites that are referer spamming me are still doing it. Is there a list someplace to add the bad guys or what else might I be missing?

    Thanks for any clues.

    TAD, Referrer Karma doesn’t block them from your stats, it blocks them form your content. Or so I believe. Eventually, when they realize that they are not reaching their goal with your site they should stop. Check out your referrer karma lots to see what’s happening. You should see lots of blocked attempts by the spam site. To find your referrer karma stats, see the official referrer karma site.

    Thanks Tomas – I just looked at the logs and while the several sites are blacklisted, it doesn’t list any blocked attempts by them. I use the stattraq plug-in to view my referrers and those sites are still listed. Someone else indicated that maybe they aren’t real referrers but 403 errors. I’m not sure how to tell. I guess I just don’t like to see my referrer logs all jammed up like that.
