    :confused: I'm new to this but I figured the best way to learn is ask the questions, so here I go ...

    How do I keep porn sites from showing up in our stats? We are not adult industry related what so ever, but for some reason our stats keep bringing up porn sites.

    Hello :)

    Could you clarify a bit on what exactly you want to prevent from showing up? Do you mean you want to block certain websites from being displayed under the referrals section of your statistics application? Is there a specific statistics application you are using such as Awstats?

    Thank you.

    Referral spam. It's been around forever. Probably not the best link for this but here's an article about it:

    Don't click those links in your stats.
