Recently some of our websites (including a brand new blog!) have received links from a Brasilian blog that is entirely in Portuguese and not at all related to our niche. What's more is that when I went to visit the referral site, I couldn't even find the link!
Is there a way to get rid of these spammy incoming links? Will they hurt our sites? They are already throwing off our analytics.
That's interesting. I had exactly this about two weeks ago! A short flurry of visitors from a blog in Brasil that is entirely unrelated to my own field. Again, like you, couldn't find any trace of the link!
In the same vein, another site, one I'm working on and which presently just has a home page sitting on a .nl domain, had a recent explosion of visits - from Argentina. That's according to GA!
