Stop or Block Referrer Spam

Lately, many website owners and online space operators have been facing an onslaught of referrer spam. For the newly initiated, referrer spam is pseudo traffic from bots, or automatic scripts, that generate a fake or inauthentic referral link.

Gradually, however, the Internet’s popularity and user pool grew larger, and before long, email spam became the flagship example of this phenomenon. Now, with the new millennium well underway, email spam has mutated, and the result is referrer spam. Read on to learn what it is, why it’s bad for you, and how to defeat it. Continue reading →

The Cloud: Created From Technical Magic And Innovation
