Recommended Posts

Any tips on how to get rid of the junk that's cluttering up my

I don't run a poker related site...

It's obvious I'm being spammed in some way back to my site... and polluting my legit Links from an external page stats... but I don't know how to stop it.



Any tips?

Just an FYI, I think they are trying to game some search engines by linking to highly-ranked sites (which means you must run a decent site :) ).


I see it every now and then - usually poker sites. They will try to ping or get a comment in on my site (most likely it's automated) - some site software allows for people to ping/trackback to you, and unfortunately, unless you are willing to sort it all yourself to make sure you get only legit responses, it's best to disable it.
