To the most frequently asked question
What do I do about it?the answer is generally
Don't click on the links.And that's just half of the answer, if we think about it.
We've slowly realised that referer spam is probably here to stay - so "Don't click on the links" is similar to "Close your eyes, and you won't see it". Maybe, we should try a better answer.
How about we tell everybody to just get back to work on their blogs?
This will have 2 benefits.
- You won't have time to click on the links.
- Your blog will get some real traffic.
Win - Win - Lose (You - Your readers - The spammers).
