Custom Referral Spam Blocker

Beschrijving

Custom Referral Spam Blocker gives you the control to ensure that dishonest referral sources are blocked from Google Analytics.

We provide a strong default set of spam referral sources and block them for you. Referrers can quickly be added in moments using the WordPress Dashboard.

At this time, we are unable to block referral spam when used in conjunction with most CDN configurations.

FAQ

If I customize my list and new default sources are added, will my list be updated?

Future versions are planned with improved support for appending to default versus replacing it with your own list.

What is the correct way to add new domains to the block list?

This plugin blocks requests for all pages from a given domain or subdomain. Each domain should be added on a new line. For example, if you add “imaspammerandimok.com” to the list, requests with referrers such as “http://imaspammerandimok.com/spamallnight/spamallday.html” will also be blocked. Do not include the protocol (https://, http://) or path (/folder/page.html) when adding new domains. Subdomains, however, must currently be entered individually.

What happens to the evil spammers?

Their requests are intentionally blocked from continuing to load any WordPress code and get directed away from your site. If they have a puppy, it cries.

Wished it worked, but it doesn't. All of the referrer spam I get has long text strings after the domain name -- which seems to circumvent the blocker. So far, it has NOT blocked: timebie.com mlizcochico.com gamezebo.com keywords-monitoring-your-success.com notify.bluecoat.com adishofdailylife.com wotbox.biz ana-white.com free-video-tool.com techvibes.com myhomeideas.com laurenconrad.com sociableblog.com grammarist.com netsidebar.com gingerhotels.com fhm.com bluecoat.com dobbersports.com mp3boo.cc Update: In response to the author's comment(s) below, I have changed my rating to a "5" -- BUT the plugin still does not work for me and I'm still getting referrer spam from the domains listed above. This is not "ghost spam". We're using Rackspace + Cloudflare + WPRocket. I realize that some plugins don't anticipate users with premium assets and are more geared toward budget hosts and basic configurations, but all of the plugins that I use that are dependent on Cloudflare or caching have options in the plugin settings so that they all work together -- regardless of whether or not the user has a cache or a CDN. So, I'll check back again in a couple of months and try the plugin again.

This plugin redirected the spam bots away, never to come back. But there is one small in the fact that it also redirects t.co which is not spam but a twitter referral. If this problem was fixed it would perfect.

Spammers are immediately redirected away and do not foul analytics. List updates are pushed out very frequently.
