Referral problem
Strange referrals linking to my site

Hi all,

I just checked my log file as I do every morning and today I have something weird.

Dozens of sites are in my referral list with the format:
www.abc.com/fiendslinks.php
www.def.com/fiendslinks.php
...

All different domains but all of them ending with friendslinks.php. When I check these sites, they're all porn sites using some kind of redirecting method.

1) Could this harm my PR, SERP?
2) Anyone having this problem?

thx & grtz

Ambiorix

No-one can blame you for other websites linking to you.

"No one can blame you for other sites linking to you" should read "Google says they won't penalize you for who links to you". Something like this may possibly affect whether your site shows up in results if someone is using a safe search filter.
