Referral Spam

What is referral spam?

Have you ever looked at your Google Analytics and wondered ‘why am I getting so many referral links from Russia’? Or ‘what the hell is’ Then don’t worry, you’re not alone. There are many webmasters around the world who are thinking the exact same thing. After noting that a personal blog of mine, which only went live very recently, has started to get these whole bunch of these links I decided to do a little bit of investigation.
