There and Back Again

Referrer Spam

So I want through and cleaned out the worst of my referrer spam today. Its just fixed this month, since webalizer doesn’t rebuild a page when stats change.

I just used the HideReferrer config option with some * rules to get rid of my mortage spammers. I need a better long term solution, I think for starters im going to create a php script that is prepended on all my webalizer files and rewrite the referrer section with the nofollow attribute.

The next step after that is too look for a new stats package. Anybody got any suggestions.

    If you are looking for a good stats package – Owen Winkler’s BAStats is the business.

    It is a WordPress plugin and is under active development, getting better every day!

    Hope this helps,
