    Can anybody help me with this, please?
    I’m getting a lot of visits from a site [spam URL removed] which I believe to be some sort of tracking site. Is there any way that I can stop this, as it’s making me feel distinctly uncomfortable.

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

    Thanks. I’ve been trying to contact ‘Support’ as outlined in that item but for the past 8 b****y hours they are not there. So much for their ‘support’!

    I’m getting weird referrers too, such as [spam URL removed]. It feels like someone (or bot) is trying to do something nasty. How to deal with it? No luck getting through to support – has anyone got an answer? Any help is most appreciated. Teri

    Please be calm and read the sticky post at the head of the forum that airodyssey linked to for you. Understand these spam referrers do not in any way affect your blog’s Google page ranking, and there is no security risk here, to you or to your blog.The motive these spam referrers have is to get your to click the link so don’t do it and don’t post the link and you won’t be helping them airodyssey has flagged this thread so it gets Staff attention and so the URL is removed.

    Thanks, folks. I have been clicking on the link in the past, but I sure as heck will not click on it again.
