    Hello,

    I think some one is sending fake traffic to my site using sites like

    www.qualitysurfer.com
    freehitz.net
    autosurfhit.com
    autohits247.com

    I am assuming this traffic could hurt my site, correct me if I am wrong.
    How can I stop it or block these sites?

    Thanks

    If you adsense on your site , you could get banned because of this traffic.

    contact them and ask them to remove it.

    Contact who?

    And I think this may be why I was banned once already.

    You got to get a hold of this fast. I have a white hat friend get dropped from Adsense from some A-Hole sending fake traffic to his very clean.

    Unless it's coming from the same place I don't kwon how you can stop it.
    Try contacting Big G and ask them what to do

    I posted on the adsense forum, my site is an autoblog.
    Do you think they will be able to tell if I give them the url?

    Dam, the site that is sending the most traffic, has a messed up contact form.
    It says I am not putting anything in the message box, but I am.

    Why not just block traffic by referrer in your htaccess?

    http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess14.shtml


    Block traffic from a single referrer:

    RewriteEngine on
    # Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} badsite\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    Block traffic from multiple referrers

    RewriteEngine on
    # Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} badsite\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} anotherbadsite\.com
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    I tested it and it did not work.
    I tried with and without the \
    It still lets me see the site from a link with the site I blocked

    If you have cPanel, then block these sites.

    And if you use Adsense, then ABSOLUTELY block these.

    1) You are hotlinking images from other blogs.
    2) You are pulling their feeds as ofter as 5 times per every 10 minutes.

    I believe someone of those blog owners is not happy with such a behavior and decided to punish you accordingly.

    Had to remove the adsense before I get ban

    Here is the code I used and its not working

    RewriteEngine on
    # Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} qualitysurfer\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} autosurfhit\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} freehitz\.net [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} autohits247\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} perfecttrafficstorm\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} autosurf\.cc [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} mydailysitetraffic\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} smileytraffic\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} trafficg\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} fastwebhits\.com
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    Edit- just did a test that I did when I first put the code up, and it failed, but when I tried it a couple days ago it worked.

    you must use the .htacess file, deny any rank ip of that site.

    What the source code is your site? and have a code of the .htacess corresponding.




    HTML:
    Allow access from a certain IP address:     order allow deny
          deny from all
          allow from <your_IP>     In this case, <your_IP> stands for a specific address.         For example:
         order allow deny
          deny from all
          allow from 192.126.12.199     Forbid access from a certain IP address:
         order allow deny
          deny from all
          deny from <your_IP>

    sr i can't posr URL on this forum, you can search googel with key: Using .htacess file
