Then I checked traffic sources and saw this
|Yesterday's referral hits|
Most of the hits yesterday weren't hits from real readers, they were just garbage hits from Spam Referral sites. I thought I was finally rid of them a few weeks ago but they suddenly showed up on my stats again today.
I really wish they'd go away and stop messing up everyone's stats like this.
For other bloggers who may not know I'd like to point out that one of the worst things you can do regarding spam referrals is to click the spam referral links on your own stats page. That's exactly what they're looking for, clicks, the more you click on their link, the more garbage hits they send back your way.
The clicks aren't on a 1 to 1 basis either, for every click you do they'll send back hundreds of fake hits.
