    Hi Camu,

    I am just wondering what the Top Traffic Sources box under tab Traffic Sources (of course) shows.

    It is with me full off totally unrelated websites of which I am sure they would not have a link or anything to my blog and I don't have links to them.

    And then of course the usaul google and yahoo thingies

    Thanks, Ron

    Yes, sometimes spammers send a 'referrer' HTTP header, even if they are not really coming from that website, because that's a way to circumvent antispam filters, sometimes. Unfortunately there's not much WP SlimStat can do about it, because those appear like 'legitimate' requests, and as such they are tracked and recorded.

    OK, Thanks, was just wondering where they came from.
    Guess SPAM will always be an issue on the web
