    :confused:I have looked around on the forum and could not find the answer i have looked around on the net for solutions but that dose not work either

    i have about 20 to 30 bits a day and it is hitting my site quite hard and annoying

    they have two ways of really messing up you site visits

    "google officially -recommends somedomain.com search shell" and 8 other spammy things like this

    this comes thew as a search

    and as referal

    "domain.com" and about another 30 others

    I have tryed blocking like this

    Deny from 78.110.60.230
    Deny from 193.227.240.37
    Deny from 193.227.240.38

    but this just blocks every one on my site

    i have tryed like this as well

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} domain\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} domain2\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    this stops my site updating and shows my site without www

    anybody got any ideas

    Hello :)

    I've seen some users report success with using Mod_Security for restricting referrer SPAM. The following third-party URL offers some additional solutions for blocking it:

    Thank you.
