Spam- Not the good kind



No, I'm not talking about this...

What's bothering me is WWW.savegco-antivir.com  that keeps showing up in my Feedjit Traffic Report. A little Google-ing this morning turned up some important information about links like this. Are you seeing weird ones on your site too? 

It's spam all right and we need to know some Very Important Information about this sneaky little threat to our computers. Savegco-antivir and many other spam sites actually refer some fake spam visitors to your site or blog. There aren't REAL humans reading, it's bad programmers who hope to upload a virus into your computer and use information about you. Sounds like a bug we need to squash doesn't it?

The best way to do that is to NOT CLICK ON THE LINK WHICH APPEARS IN YOUR STATISTICS DETAILS. That's just what I've been doing when I see these strange visitors...duh.

If you have a good antivirus program installed on your computer, we have Norton Security Suite, you'll be ok. Just be safe and don't click in the first place.
There are others out there... this is a list of the most common ones. Just do a search of the link you have a question about and it will tell you all you need to know.

    1. I kept seeing them in the feedjit feed and thought that's what they were. What did we ever do without Google to explain things to us??? Encyclopedia Brittanica, oh yeah!

  3. i have had at least 8 or 9 of these - yes, most recently that savegco one. i learned the hard way after clicking on the domar.ru one, that it just invites thousands of fake traffic hits to bounce thru your older blog posts. i, too, keep norton as a safety net.

    1. I know just enough to be dangerous but I knew something was going on since I'd had spam at several older posts like you...

  4. I've had many of those. (and never click on them) I have researched them elsewhere on the web.
