Spam Be Gone

I think I’ve found a solution to my persistent “spam referrer” woes, where porn sites (particularly “Paris Hilton” related—to whom, I continue to assert, I have no connection whatsoever) create spurious links from weblogs and boost their Google PageRank. About twice an hour, I have a script that looks up all the “recent inbound links” sites and checks to see if they actually link to my site. If they don’t, they’re removed.

I’m sure a few legitimate inbound links will be removed in the process, but it’s much preferable to having to manually cull out all the porn sites. As it turns out, porn sites never actually link to me!

I wonder how long it will take for the spam referrers to figure out a way around this filter.
