[resolved] [Solved] Log: sites that don't link back are listed as referrers

Just curious…

I don’t usually pay much attention to the logs of my Textpattern sites, but every now and then I come across a site listed in the Referrer column – e.g. teedirect.com. com – that certainly does not have any link back to my particular site.

What’s going on here? Has that “referring site” been hacked?

Referer spam. En vogue since 1997…
