Semalt Blocker

Description

We all know how annoying it is when we see Semalt mess up our analytics data. This plugin helps you stop that from happening by referring Semalt’s crawler elsewhere! Based on an idea by Rishi Lakhani.

Simply install the plugin and follow the instructions on the Settings page.

Installation

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload semalt directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the Semalt settings and enter the URL you want to redirect traffic to.
  4. Click Save!

Reviews

Blocks real users

Tried the plugin for a week, started getting feedback from users finding the website on Google and not allowed to visit the website, redirected away.

Turned off the plugin, everything works again.

Great idea for the plugin, just unreliable and can hurt traffic to your website.
