Beware of "Ourmeets" and Other Referring Sites in Your Blog and Website "Referring Sites."

The blog "From the Sidelines" has good information and advice about "ourmeets" and other similar "referring sites."

"First up is the worst offender. Coming in as www . seoanalyses .com or under its real address,  ourmeets . com , this is a por nographic “dating” site. As you can see, it was blocked by OpenDNS, which I use to pre-filter anything coming into the house. Don’t click on it as it is exceedingly unsafe to visit."

List of references to avoid. Recommended: Do not click on them.
Avoid clicking on any strange referral sites.

Beware of "top blog" and Other Referring Sites in Your Blog and Website "Referring Sites."

Besides Vampirestat, etc., the latest possible spam is called Top Blog
There are others showing up that I don't recognize, such as 7 Secret Search , kamangra 100 blog .
At first, I thought these were good, recognizing my great writing ability:)
Then, I learned the hard way that these are spam. I clicked on the link, and thus opened the door to more spam. I learned NEVER to click directly on an unknown referring site link.
Hot to Handle Referrer Spam in Referring Website and URLs
To check out a referrer site, we can run a search, such as "what is top blog stories. com"
Then look through the search results for some answers. Usually, we don't even need to click a link, as the search results summaries will give you the information you need.
As online writers, we must be aware that not only are there harmful spammy sites that look like "referring" sites, but also running a search question can lead to fake and spammy "reference" sites that are set up to spam us again.
Though I am a novice-intermediate to online writing, I've learned to develop a sense about "fishy" sites, just as I learned about "fishy" email. If it doesn't look right, don't click. If we are unsure, take the precaution of running a search "What is _______."
Additional Information:
"This is called referer spam. Nobody is actually viewing your blog from these sites - and nobody knows about these links but you, since only you can see your Stats logs. There are no actual links to your blog, from these websites - nor is your blog content being read, from anybody's computer. Neither your blog's page rank nor reputation is affected, one way or the other, by referer spam."
Stop clicking on the links in your Stats logs.  That's the only way to make referer spam stop.​2011/10/referer-spam-is-here-​to-stay.html
Concentrate on publishing your blog, and getting legitimate traffic - and the referer spam will not be an important issue.

"If you must click on unknown links while in an office environment [or any environment] , at least disable/fake the referrer information you're sending, so they don't see where you are coming from (your stats page). And disable loading images ('cached only' instead) and javascript on all unknown sites, maybe even css too."
