Referral spam

Since this site has been hit with Referral spam, I have taken action by placing a robots.txt in this site’s statistics directory to exclude search engines’ robots (aka web crawlers).

That way search engines should not index spammer’s Referral links, and hence they should not have higher search rankings. If I have time I will name and shame these assholes.


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
