Less than 3 weeks ago I wrote about referrer spam from fake blog sites. Today, as I peruse my access logs as part of my end-of-the-month ritual, I find myself again a victim of referrer spam.
My conjecture: someone owns this collection of sites and is trying to get a high PageRank for the sites, either to later sell them off or for further abuse. Anyone else have a theory?
Anyhow, you can view my .htaccess to see my blacklist of referrer spamming sites as well as a mod_rewrite method of blocking referrers.
