Semalt Referrer spamming gone mad. blend27 msg:4642188 8:24 pm on Feb 3, 2014 (gmt 0) Seems like another on of those pesky SEO/SEM firms from mother country. User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/32.0.1700.102 Safari/537.36 REF: http:// semalt .com/crawler.php?u=domain.com Several domains hit, mostly from LACNIC ranges. Greece and Italy IPs there 2. Me thinks it's a bot, never(almost) had visitors or competitors from Colombia or Peru. Net Alex, nechorosho....

Yes, when they find you they come in droves, and from places all over (such as Brazil) that never send any real traffic. Referers are of the type
- no proof that they always identify themselves, but at least the many hosts that use this referer are easily blackholed. wilderness msg:4650596 1:12 am on Mar 3, 2014 (gmt 0)
"they come in droves, and from places all over" They been getting turned away in droves, however had one get through recently from a Comcast Philly IP, which I assumed was a compromised machine.
