My hobby blog gets about 1k visitors a day and on April 18th it started plummeting down to 300 a day. I have recently implemented this robots.txt file for controlling duplicate content on this wordpress blog. Am I somehow blocking other sites abilities to grab my feeds? Thanks

How does this look?
What the heck is going on? There's no malicious code on my p[agesand I am certainly not placing my link on russion blogs with links to all things sex.
you want to look for loads of foreign pages where your url is part of the query string.
there's a long post on this site somewhere about how to stop it. can't remember exactly where, but a search for proxy hijacking should find it (if that's what it turns out to be)
and it shows about 30 pages of pron and warez links on my site at this URL:
I also notice a bunch of weird files in that folder on my FTP. Can I just delete all those files? All of the uer logins are people I don't know! Upon further comparison with my other wordpress files, it looks like this entire "cache" directory is completely bogus.
Is there a name for this kind of hack or spam? Whatever it's doing it's killed my bog since late April.
EDIT: after some snooping around my FTP, it looks like my site has been hacked and then somehow redirected. That explains over 100 pages being dropped from non-supps and all my images.

Can bad sites linking to you have negative effects? I have two hobby blogs, and I notice that one of them has a bunch of spam pages linking to it. On my major hobby blog (the one referenced in this thread), I have *one* polish/spam site linking to it, but I cannot find my link on that page(even translated, etc)as the #1 referrer to my page. My non-supps are like ten pages now, they were well over 100, asnd the blog had images indexed in Google.
This stinks. If bad links can affect me, I don't know what to do. I can't control that.
Turns out someone hacked my WP uploads folder and inserted this really weird XML.import file that redirected most of my blog to #$@# and pill sites. Google probably didn't like that, lol. They de-indexed all but 4 pages of my site and all it's images. I had well over 100 in the non-supps.
Poof! Good thing it's just a hobby/interest site. I would be even more upset if this was a commercial site that I relied on to pay the bills.
I've searched my blog for other malicious fiels but can't find any. Hopefully deleting that solves the problem.
