    Question Blogged links - auto linking?


    Over the last few days, I've noticed an occasional link in my stats coming from different blog sites. I go to the sites and they are blogs with very little/no contact information. Mostly news stuff (could be feeds for all I know). On one side of each blog is a link box with 10-15 different unrelated sites.

    I notice these sites all have PR's of 0 (white bar).

    Any ideas? New type of link farms?

    Post blog spammer


    i posted similar findings in the 'spiders' section of this forum. are you talking about 'referer' info. i think someone is up to some bullsh*t. check the ip address from all of the blog referrals...i guarantee you they all come from so jerkoff in romania. i have seen 2 unique ips...both from romania. these have to be falsified referers since there are no links to my sites on these blog pages and there are too many different blog sites being used and its hitting most of my sites. it could be some kind of email harvesting bot too i guess.

    Very similar thing was happening with Isopryx a domain snatcher a while back except he was using the same tactic to send thousands of requests to sites with online stats that and was doing really well in the serps until the online stats pages stopped being counted for backlinks
