Is this a breach of my blog security? I don’t understand what it means. Blog url: http://realhousewifeofaiken.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is realhousewifeofaiken.com.

A Referrer is just the URL location of where a visitor clicked a link to visit your blog, like https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/questionable-referrer-2 would appear if they click your blog’s link above. Nothing malicious can be done via a Referrer. My best guess is probably someone’s personal webmail or feed reader hosted on an IP instead of a domain name.

I’ll now try to get my paranoia under control . :) June 28, 2012 at 10:39 pm #931157 macmanxStaff You’re welcome! Author Posts The topic ‘Questionable referrer’ is closed to new replies.
