Referral Spam

    For the first time since I started my blog last november I have been getting refferal spam in my logs. Should I be worried? It’s not like I display my referrers on the blog itself. Still, I am finding it somewhat disconcerting. I’m pretty sure its only been this week which has me thinking that it might have something to do with WP.com’s downtime last week. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

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

    Have you gone to look at the sites? Are they sploggers stealing content from your blog? You can see summaries of your referrers by clicking on the word (on your stats page): 7 Days 30 Days Quarter Year All Time to see how long a referrer has been around.

    It seems doubtful that this is connected with the downtime last week.

    if it is not a splogging case many people try to modify attached details of request to your blog

    these details are like … from which page visitor is coming from..

    Such kind of links mostly contains malwares. So do not click on links on your stats page unless you are familiar to them.
