Ugh. My first rant and I haven’t even launched yet. I noticed today that I had numerous referrers from Semalt ( semalt.com/crawler.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwebfloss.com ). Being dead in the middle of a HUGE relaunch of Webfloss the LAST thing I need are false hits. So I put on my investigation hat and went to work on Google.
What is Semalt? Some say Semalt is Spam? Others say Semalt is a phishing website?
Whatever Semalt is, they are making a not-so-nice name for themselves as the latest annoyance to website owners and bloggers in the virtual world. These crawler bots are like the cockroaches of cyberspace according to many cyber-savvy stat watchers.
Semalt should proceed carefully, they do not want the wrath of bloggers wielding pitchforks and flaming torches at their virtual doorstep…
Advice to curve a Semalt attack on your site:

You can use a filter to remove Semalt from displaying in Google Analytics.
