Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
So far today, my reports have been *very* stable.
Wa Desert Rat, to block that range, do you actually put 54.186.x.x? Include the Xs?
Every site has a different way to block. If you have access to the router it would be 220.127.116.11/16 (that would block everything up to 18.104.22.168). If you are using phpbb it would be 54.186.*.*. Some require 22.214.171.124/255.255.0.0. You can use a netmask calculator to figure it out: [jodies.de...]

BUT before you edit your .htaccess, make a backup copy, because if you mess something up, you won't be able to get to your site (other than via FTP) I speak from experience. Loooooong experience.
First of all, there isn't ONE problem. I'm still getting inflated clicks, I'm just getting fewer of them at the moment.
And I am kind of amazed that none of us got banned during this event (knock on wood). Seems like Google was giving us time to figure it out?
