Large Number of Spam Referrers

  1. Yesterday I had 101 link referrals from over 80 different spam sites... which is quite a lot considering I only had 146 link referrals altogether. Today I'm already at 40 and it's only noon. Anyone having issues with this? I tried reporting some of the links to WordPress yesterday, but haven't heard anything back yet.

    The blog I need help with is thebakerbee.com.

  2. I had a similar experience... my page view count was nearly triple my previous high count. Today is on track to hit a similar mark. Hope they fix it soon.

  4. I also reported this issue to WordPress yesterday after seeing an uncharacteristically large number of spam referrers. There were about 150 hits, including multiple referrals from individual urls with search extensions having to do with topics not found on my blog. So far today it is up to about 50 of these referrers.

  5. Same thing happened to me yesterday and seems to be continuing to a lesser degree today.

  6. Thanks for the reports, we're investigating the situation.
