Referrers stats (2 posts)

    I openly admit it when it comes down to referrers stats and .htaccess, that I have no idea what is going on.

    I was just looking through my server stats and I have things like,

    85133:shadows.os42.com/
    27140:www.3arabawys.com/
    25480:www.os42.com/
    16660:www.myspace.com/
    6642: images.google.com/
    3024:www.voetbalprimeur.nl/
    2852:images.google.nl/
    1945:images.google.co.uk/
    1795:krustystills.blogspot.com/
    1653:images.search.yahoo.com/
    1298:www.livejournal.com/
    1130:www.namco.com/
    1120:ruthlessreviews.com/
    1005:images.google.ca/

    Now most of these sites have absolutely nothing to do with me and no visible links that back to me that I can see, so what is going on? Why do they show as referrers. I gather it is some form of spam but what do I need to do to get rid of it or is it a non-issue?

    Sorry for my ignorance.

    And yes it's spam.
    It's there because so many sites still think it's cool to list their "Last 50 Referers" and so referer spam now exists.
