    Hey there!
    I noticed today a number of strange websites popping up on my Referral list with quite a few hits. These include:
    nym1.ib.adnxs.com
    lax1.ib.adnxs.com
    sin1.g.adnxs.com

    When I click to check them out, all of them lead to banner ads on white pages. :S For example… this nonsensical link.

    I did NOT purchase any ‘cheap traffic’ to my site so this is pretty confusing! Is somebody trying to spam my site or trick people into clicking on the banners for $$$?

    Anyway, just wondering, if there a way to report / block these referrals from showing up any further? They are slowly but surely increasing in number and I don’t want Google or anyone to think this traffic somehow comes from me :S

    Please help someone! I appreciate any assistance from anyone :) Very much appreciated! <3

    Thanks so much!

    Regards,
    Lev

    The blog I need help with is www.mywifemakes.com.

    That site is NOT hosted by wordpress.COM so be clear on that. We cannot help you as we do not provide support for any blogs that are not hosted by WordPress.COM.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support forums. http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there.

    WordPress.org support docs are at https://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page
