Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Careful with your clicks!

Maybe you’ve noticed the web site “semalt.com” in your Referrers box on the WordPress stats page. I started seeing it a couple of days ago and got curious. Who knows? Maybe someone out there who can help me has discovered What The Hell!

No such luck. Don’t click on the site. From all I’ve been able to learn tracking it down, it’s likely some kind of phishing expedition aimed at getting you to register and provide information.

Check out this page for advice on how to block them from your site (if you have access to your .htaccess file, whatever that is).

This has been a public service announcement for all my WordPress pals.

    How ironic that what got you suspended was something you found on the WordPress stats page.

      Ain’t it, though. This is what happens when stuff is automated that should be done by human beans. 😏
