Blog attacked by Spam - How to reset views? (3 posts)

    Hello, I have a page on my blog which is constantly hit by spambots trying to comment. It has reached over 22,000 views, which nice as it would be, it is not a real figure for that page.

    Is there anyway to try and stop the bots from finding this page besides deleting it and reposting?

    Also, how do I set the view count down, as although it is a nice number I want it to reflect reality a bit more.
    the blog is http://www.eyeondemand.com and you can see which is page is being hit if you scroll down and look at the right panel.

    Thanks in advance.

    constantly hit by spambots trying to comment

    Are they just trying only, or posting comments?

    No, posting comments, all commercials, mostly with links. I am having some success now with a catcha to block the posts, but they are still hitting the page distorting the numbers.
