Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
for several months now, I have seen minimal referrals from this domain to a couple of client sites in totally unrelated industries.
IAEA - International Atomic Energy Agency
Now, this week at About.com, many of the guides are reporting between 25-50 referrals from them, again, all in unrelated topics.
My theory is that they are using some sort of hidden link farm..but i don't want this to negatively affect any of the sites i am connected with. I suspect the referrals are only spiders following the links.
Has anyone come across this or have evidence of it? I'm absolutely considering emailing the Agency but i don't know what to say.
Anyway it is a rouge bot (probably templates stealing) and bogus traffic.
