    Hello,
    I see that the support team is away till march 1st. I have an ongoing issue with my stats on my blog. it tells me that I am getting a number of hits per day but when I go to look where they came from 99% of them come from the most weird website addresses I have seen – zwkit.co.cc/sedapsiot.php or akucintakamu-wordpress.co.cc/010101010100101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101010101001010101010101010101010.php or other such weirdness… these are usually advert sites for insurance and holidays and I have no idea HOW but on some of them my blog is listed (and totally irrelevant to their topic)

    Also early on when i started the blog – december – I had a visit from someone/thing called a “hook” I dont know how to remove that and I would like to have accurate results for my blog stats.
    Any one can offer advice I would appreciate it lots.
    Thank you

    The blog I need help with is freshrawlife.wordpress.com.

    Hi Guys,
    This situation is merely an annoyance. It does not affect your blog’s standing with Google in any way.

    Staff have created a filtering system. They have requested that we do not click the spam refferer links because that is what the spammers want us to do. They have also requested that we do not post any referrer information into forum threads, but instead that we report all spam refferer links directly to them. Thanks for doing that.

    NOTICE TO ANY MEMBER READING THIS THREAD
    Please do not post any information here at all. If you have not reported the links directly to Staff please do that now. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    I do not get that message when I click this link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ What I get is a support ticket I can complete. Please try again.

    The team is spending a week together to brainstorm various new ways to improve your WordPress.com experience, so we’ve shut down the form for most users until March 1.

    Users with paid upgrades will still have access to the form, and we’ll be monitoring for new tickets when we can.

    For now, please report these to support@wordpress.com
