    My blog is like 3 days old. Not an autoblog.
    I checked wassup plugin logs today and I saw this massive hits from few IP addresses. Within 24h I got around 2k hits. They don't attempt to make a spam comment, just keep visiting my blog each minute.

    Each hits will have some random and possibly fake referrer like this:
    hxxp://nyfindrw.chez.com/sitemap.html
    hxxp://txfindhz.xlx.pl/sitemap.html

    How to stop it? It makes my blog loads slower. I have installed wp-ban but doesn't seem to work well. Please help!!

    Thank you.

    Is this a newly registered domain name, brand new and never before used or is it aged? If aged then maybe the previous owner was running some nasty stuff on it. I'm sure someone else will have a better answer for you. I've never experienced this before.

    You can block a range of ip's or even a whole country.

    Do a country origin check on the IP's. I too got some crazy hits from countries like Algeria, Russia. I don't really know what they hell they are up to as it is the same person visiting again and again.

    If it get's too out of hand, try blocking it. I have to look into that as well.
