Refer Spam - be careful!

I'd noticed an increase in traffic in my blog stats, but the referring sites were unknown to me and I never click on an unknown link.

Apparently, some of these sites can have malware or viruses and may also have p*rn, so never click an unknown link.

Here is some good advice about dealing with them: How to Handle Refer Spam
