So through the process of learning to build this site I have found that there is lots of spam you can get online. Akismet is a great plugin to stop comment and trackback spam but there is still the fact that lots of referral spam will show up in your analytics and mess up what you see for your traffic. I found a great post over at bradtollefson.com where he lays out which sites to block and show you how to use a great wordpress plugin to do so. I’m starting it right now and we’ll see how my traffic looks tomorrow. Check out the list below of sites to add.
