Traffic Faking Update
This is an update on traffic faking. If you have a blog or a website, you will see an inordinate amount of hits from weird and not-so-weird domains. They are faking traffic to your website. When you click out of curiosity, you are bombarded by spam, or even worse, malware.
I created a La Brea Tarpit blog -- a blog with lots of keywords. It has had no hits at all from legitimate users, but in four days, it had the following hits from the traffic faking domains:
http://www.vampirestat.com 30 hits
http://www.vampirestat.com/ 22 hits
http://thetaoofbadass.pw 18 hits
http://blogsrating.pw/ 11 hits
http://awsurveys.com 10 hits
http://www.adsensewatchdog.com 4 hits
http://google.adsensewatchdog.com 2 hits
http://blogger-custom-domain.blogspot.com/ 1 hit
http://kmzackblogger.blogspot.com 1 hit
I contacted that .pw registrar and they weren't interested in stopping their traffic faking domains, so my guess is that they are scumbag traffic faker enablers as well.
The internet is very Darwinian. Traffic faking must work to generate hits, otherwise they wouldn't do it. If you are a webmaster or blog owner and you see one of these domains, don't click on it. Let's starve them out of web traffic.
