Just a quick Post - I'm busy Re-Decorating the old Home Place while juggling other things as well...
I just wanted to let my readers know that I've experienced recent problems with having my Blog used by Spam Referrers, which made my Page Views look like Fireworks! It was pretty amazing to log in and see hundreds of views every day, until I realized that things just weren't adding up. Love the numbers, hate the Spammers. It doesn't do me any favors.
So, I changed every single Password for every account I have. My older brother tipped me to a website that will generate safe Passwords for you: Strong Password Generator.
In addition, I learned to NEVER CLICK ON REFERRING WEBSITES in your stats, especially if it is a site with Bllog in the name. Mark anonymous comments as Spam, then Delete them. Never click on the link to their site.
Last, I went into my Security Settings and turned off Enable Remote Access.
My Stats are back to normal. Hopefully, when they spike again, it will be because I have Real People reading my Blog, not scum ball Spammers using me to their advantage!
