With the constantly updating blocklist, we are able to filter out the majority of these spam bots by marking them as spam in to your .htaccess file which prevents the spam bots from ever reaching your website.

Why do I need a subscription?

A subscription is optional. But with it's constant updates is a good way to keep your website statistics free of referral spam. This service is availale exclusively to plugin users.

How does the list get updated?

We've developed a unique reporting system where you can easily report suspicious domains. If the domain gets reported a few times it will be included in the blocklist

In a way, you do. By reporting new domains. However the system is mostly automated after you send your report. The blocklist service is governed and provided by Arnan de Gans.
