Spammers visiting your blog is common, but do not click on the hyperlink, you encourage them by doing so!

Spammers visiting your blog is common, but do not click on the hyperlink, you encourage them by doing so!

Since I started this blog back in December, 2012 every day I kept my eyes peeled for number of viewers visiting my blog.  Everyday I hoped the page views would be better then yesterday.  It is the ultimate satisfaction for any blogger to see a high volume of page views for his/her blog. May be more than ad revenue!  Because like Aamir said in 3 Idiots, 
Baccha kabil bano, kabil ... kamyabi to sali jhak maar ke peeche bhagegi
Its very simple, write good content, the visitors and readers will flock your blog and with them you will get good revenue.   However it this article is not about readers or visitors to your blog, it is about spammers visiting your blog.  When I started blogging, I was happy to find a website with url videoshub.needz.it visiting my site often.  But one fine day I discovered it had visited my website 59 times in a day, I was worried and clicked on the link.  As you would have guessed by now the site featured unwanted content.  So I googled it and found out a way to stop it, thanks very good blogger friends I have and complained about it in a very decent way with Lunarpages, they raised a ticket about my complaint and resolved it. Since then it has never visited me you can also do the same by visiting Lunarpages support page, if this particular site is troubling you.

But my run-ins with the spammers have never stopped.  Till recently a site called kallery.net visited my site.  When I checked it out, it seemed to be some kind of image gallery in Korean language.  The latest ones doing rounds on my website are filmhill.com and current.com.  The webpage that is hidden under the current.com is flf-course.com which contains some sort of ad.  I was a bit surprised because current.com is a very reputed site. But spammers work in mysterious ways.

I have only one thing to say to my fellow bloggers, never click the hyperlink or url.  Better still stay away from bloggers visitor stats, they are not absolutely correct and also they induce you to click on unwanted hyperlinks.  Please read Proffessor Mungeltons blog and tecnoxp.com for list of all kind of spammers that are found to visit blogs. 

If you want a error free hit counters or hitstats for your blog kindly visit my friend Rehmat's website here for different kinds of stats counters. 

All in all, I would say to my fellow bloggers that these spammers are really parasites who survive on our clicks so if you want to effectively end the menace, stop clicking on them.

Kindly write in your experiences with spammers on your website/blog and share them with fellow bloggers as all of us are affected by them.
