Googlebot Voting on my images!? (2 posts)

    After checking some suspicious repeat voters on my gallery, turns out Google's crawler IPs are repeatedly voting on a few of the images. Wouldn't be as bad if they weren't currently the only ones voting!

    Is there anything plugin side that can avoid this? There was 42 'fake' votes.

    Shot of my SQL table before deleting the entries from the table, blacked out ones are the only legit votes:

    You can probably disallow them with a custom htaccess rule, but I should but 'nofollow' attributes on the actual links.
    I have added it to the list of things to look into for a future version.

    Thanks for the feedback
