I do my own log processing using my own self-written analyzer. That means I have to deal with the continual nuisance of referrer spammers. Is there anywhere I can get an up-to-date list of referrer spammers?

  • Interesting question, seems like a central registry of referrer spammers could be put together like the email spam blacklists. – artlung Jul 9 '10 at 4:53
  • Are you publishing your access logs? – citadelgrad Jul 10 '10 at 1:40
  • I'd be willing to share the list of referrer spammers I've got with other people if there was a repository of some kind, but I wouldn't publish my access logs under any circumstances. – delete Jul 10 '10 at 1:54

It looks like this subject was raised in the blogosphere around 5 years ago, but nothing appears to have come of it. It may well be worth exploring the idea again, but I have no idea if the sheer size of the problem would make it unmanageable.
