Referral spam

Recommended Posts

I've been reading up on Referral spam in Google Analytics and wondered what others were doing to counter it. It's such a new problem that Google themselves have so far failed to deal with it effectively leaving us web developers to figure out solutions.

Some of the guys on the forums are using .htaccess tweaks to block the domains in question etc.

What (if anything) are you doing?

I saw a WordPress plugin which I think is a good idea. It pulls in a central repository of known referral spammers and blocks them.

Might be a good idea for a PW Module?
