    Someone has been coming to my site multiple times a day for the past few months. These were either direct or through a bing/google search. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and didn't do anything.

    But last couple of days, he has been clicking on my backlinks to come to my site (I know this based on the referrer)

    Anything I can do? This is not a PBN, so I can't block bots. I was going to redirect him to a virus website. I figured if his computer gets a nasty virus, he will be too busy cleaning that up and won't spy on me any more. But he is on a Mac and I think Macs don't get infected.

    Anything I can do? Any suggestions, any suggestions at all, please let me know. I am desperate here.

    How about ignoring him? He did nothing to your site nor harming your business.

    If one of your biggest worries is following a visitor on your site, you need to reorganize your priorities.

    I think you are being paranoid. Any person with a lick of browser sense knows that you do not have to click and follow a link, unless you are using a shortener. You hoover over the link and a decent browser shows the link. With a shortner, you click the link once and you know where it goes. Then anyone worth his salt will use a scraper anyhow.

    The only type of person I can think of that would follow your links is an inexperienced whitehat webmaster that wants to report you after they map out your links. An experienced webmaster will just use a scraper.

    Redirecting your site to a virus seems like a swell idea...

    If this whole thing makes you nervous then why don't you block this suspicious IP with your .htaccess?

    You may block the ip via htaccess or firewall if it is static one.
    but I'd recommend you , not to bother as he/she is not harming your site.
    It may be some of your competitor who is keeping a track of your site

    Isn't that what most of us do? Checking on competitors backlinks and try to get above them.

    Report him to police. You never know what's next with those stalkers. Maybe he will even follow you on twitter. Unacceptable. :rolleyes:

    come on guys, you all would be paranoid if somebody started spying on your site. If not, then please send me your site and I will spy on you.
    and when I said I would redirect him to a virus site, I would redirect ONLY HIM based on ip address.

    You seem upset...have a cookie:

    Code:
    //goes in your HTML CODE
    
    
    <script type="application/javascript">
    
    
    var nastymanipaddress = {
    
    ip : XXXXXXXXXXX
    
    }
    
    function getip(json){
        var ip = {
        ip : json.ip;
    }
    }
    </script>
    
    
    <script type="application/javascript" src="http://jsonip.appspot.com/?callback=getip"></script>
    
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/cookie.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
            
    $(if nastymanipaddress.ip == ip.ip {
        var COOKIE_NAME = 'bad-man-spying-on-me-cookie';
        $go = $.cookie(COOKIE_NAME);
        if ($go == null) {
            $.cookie(COOKIE_NAME, 'test', { path: '/', expires: 30 });
            window.location = "http://www.randompornsite.com"
        }
        else {
            window.location = "http://www.randompornsite.com"
        }
    });
    
    
    $(function() {
        var COOKIE_NAME = 'bad-man-spying-on-me-cookie';
        $go = $.cookie(COOKIE_NAME);
        if ($go == null) {
        }
        else {
            window.location = "http://www.randompornsite.com"
        }
    });        
    </script>
    
    Set the IP address of your unwanted visitor, include the above code in your Header HTML. Once that IP address you set visits your site, it sets a cookie that lasts 30 days and saves it in their browser. It checks every visitor for the existence of that cookie, if it's found, the visitor is redirected. A simple IP address redirector is a Google search away.

    This breaks if he wipes his cookies or switches browser but it'll work on his next browser. It works even if he changes IP address via a proxy. If anyone spots a mistake...feel free to correct me.

    Other than this, up your medication as mickyfu suggested.
