You might want to whitelist the available referral sites to a reasonable set
I’m guessing you’re looking at the referral header or something not super fancy like that to see where clicks are coming from. But it seems like perhaps somebody has decided to take advantage of that and get some high quality sites on the list of referrals. Currently, I’m seeing this:
It seems like perhaps you could add a whitelist of reasonable referral links (e.g. look over historical data to come up with a list of 20 or 50 or whatever legit and likely candidates). Obviously you could build a system of this or just manually reevaluate traffic in case another legit popular referral comes through and should be added to the whitelist.
Either way, or just make a randomizer that makes fake referrals.
Or just take away the feature all together, and perhaps give me the space on the page to write short personal blog posts every day about how I’m feeling, things I’d like to do, etc.
