    Everytime I look at my traffic stats of each and every site I see this damn site semalt.com as a referrer traffic. And they do visit my sites very often, apparantly just some bots.

    I hate to see that they distort my statistics every day. I wished I could somehow disable them to come to my sites.

    Anyone else experiencing the same disturbance?

    Couldn't we teach them some manners by punishing them somehow?

    I just actually started noticing the same thing, and I believe who ever is doing it is here not he forum. Blocking IP won't work since they probably have tons of proxies, so if you figure out a way would be nice to know :)

    I posted about them a while ago and have banned them on my sites
    check your logs and you can easily block them

    You can disable those by referer.

    Cheers

    I consistently get 10-20 visits PER DAY from semalt. It drives me crazy because I know they are just bots combing through the pages...

    I noticed the same too and have also wondered how to block them. It is kind of annoying.
