Hi,

I am receiving a lot of undesired web international web traffic. I believe they are copying my pictures and so forth. How do I block them?

The web address is http://semalt.semalt.com and http://buttons-for-website.com

Me too! The exact same ones.  No one seems to be able to stop these crawlers.  Please help us block them!

To block semalt:  http://semalt.com/project_crawler.php
You can block buttons-for-websites from Google Analytics - Open Google analytics, go to admin area, click tracking info, open referral exclusion list.. not add all your links which you don't want in your traffic.
What I've read though is that you need server side access to completely block it. Someone else may have figured it out though and will pipe in.

I get those two, plus "make money on line" and would like to exclude them! Any help out there? Thanks.

We are investigating options, but it will not happen until we have completed the migration.

Once the migration is done, please block all three of those listed above.

We are looking at the options we have. We are not committing to blocking anything at this time.

Sorry

Can you block the Baidu bot from China while you are at it?
