    I have few tumblr porn blogs with decent traffic redirecting users to my self hosted wordpress blog for plugrush and other CPA offers. But from last week bots are hitting and eating my bandwidth. I installed Google analytics and statcounter to find bot IP but nothing is recorded.

    I was using direct link in my tumblr blogs to my wordpress blog.

    Then today tried bit.ly, tiny, wordpress jetpack and linkbucks to find out the traffic difference.

    till now

    bitly shows only hits app. 1108
    linkbucks shows 3300 with 28 proxies
    Google analytics shows 116 visits
    and statcounter shows 14 visits

    nothing is recorded for bots. Please help me how to get rid of that shit load. I lost my two blogs in these two weeks.

    Thanks

    Sorry if posted in wrong topic.

    I tried bot traffic for several sites of mine and I found out that analytics will always remove bot data, they won't track it. They somehow manage to block it ...

    I believe there are plugins that allow to block traffic from certain IPs, you can block IPs via htaccess as well.
