more spam stuff

Matters of spam of all sorts, comment spam, referrer spam, trackback spam… all look like they are targetting bloggers of all sorts…

What’s next on the list?

Anyway, out of curiosity, I decided to do domain whois on the various referrer spam URLs, as well as visit their actual domain (not the subdomain they actually spam).

Turns out for the big many of the sites, they’ve been closed down due to account abuse.

That’s a good sign, but it doesn’t mean the spamming has stopped of those sites.

Another trend, a lot of sites that do work, seem to be related to this “shop-it-here.com” domain.

Hrm, weird. What is so special about that domain?

Very odd that the links on that domain seem to lead to many many weird and different domains with odd URLs.

  1. Unfortunately, the “this account has been shutdown” messages are just shams to trick everyone. If you go to one of the subpages, you’ll see that the account has not been shutdown at all and is running just fine.
