Referral spammers, read this!

I love my statistics page :) If you've visited it lately you would have noticed that it contains a lot of links to porn sites.

A little bit of digging (I'm still fairly new to this web page game) helped me discover that I've fallen victim to a type of spam called "referrer spam" (check out

One way to know that I've for certain been spammed by a site is to visit the site and check if there is a link there to anything on my site. If not, then you know there couldn't possibly have been a legitimate referral because no link was there anyway. A quick and easy example is a dude who thinks he can get a job by spamming my site 290 times. must have figured that is a job search website? Hmmm, I guess your 2 years professional experience isn't helping you here... You see, you need to actually provide the link, as I just did, to make it a legitimate referral - hope you enjoy my link back to you!

Perhaps a DOS attack may be in order for sites like aprilsporn? I know I was affected by that crap when spammers like them were smacking my site a million times a second. Assholes.
