How does this work?

With the constantly updating blocklist, we are able to filter out the majority of these spam bots by marking them as spam in to your .htaccess file which prevents the spam bots from ever reaching your website.

Why do I need a subscription?

A subscription is optional. But with it’s constant updates is a good way to keep your website statistics free of referral spam. This service is availale exclusively to plugin users.

How does the list get updated?

We’ve developed a unique reporting system where you can easily report suspicious domains. If the domain gets reported a few times it will be included in the blocklist

Who manages the blocklist updates?

In a way, you do. By reporting new domains. However the system is mostly automated after you send your report. The blocklist service is governed and provided by Arnan de Gans.

Recensioni

Needs improvements

Works fairly well, but it needs some improvements. Modern Referral spam bots often use ‘look alike characters’ in domain names, characters from non-western alphabets resembling western characters.

The function to report a spam domain however tells that the ‘domain name is not valid’.

Like for example ḷ.com…

No Good

I found it completely useless in getting rid of www1.free-share-buttons.top
