    Is it possible to block certain referrers from showing up in the statistics? Currently my blog gets spammed by certain referrers, making it hard for me to follow the statistics.

    Sorry to reply late but WordPress.org does not report to the developer that there is a new post!
    What you can do is edit the file located in the directory spider.dat wp-content/plugins/statpress-visitors/def by adding a line like this:

    Spam Bot Unknown | spammer's domain name |

      or any other subject in the referrer spammer, and it will be counted as a spammer and not as a visitor.

    But the best solution is to prevent robots to spam comments on your site using effective anti-spam plugins.

    You must test them one by one.
