False Statistics and Vampires

Just out of curiosity, and because I get this in my stats every so often, I checked out what Vampirestat.com really was. Honestly, I thought it was someone spying on my blog, and it turns out I was partially correct.

Check this blog post about these sites and why you shouldn't click on them to check the validity of your stats.

*Update: These are the names of traffic bots to watch out for, and the reasons to ignore them.

Question: Why is ourmeets.com visiting my website?
Answer:  They are scumbag traffic fakers and spammers.  They fake traffic to your website to get you to check them out.  

Also included are:

adsensewatchdog.com

villainstat.com

monsterstat.com

ontimemarketing.com

All are FAKE and all you do by clicking on their link is to up their stats and their hope is to get you to click on the ads they have on their bot sites. And they often infect your computer with viruses.

Oh, and if you call them out, as I have here, you get a HUGE influx of stats coming in from their sites.

Fake, fake, fakity fakeness spammer bot slugs.

*11-21-2013 Update: Add ourmeets.com to that growing list of scammer virus dispersing fake 'hits' list. 

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T CHECK OUT THESE SITES! It could potentially ruin your day.
