I’ve added some code to the lgf-referrer script I’m using to block certain domains from the list. Mostly I’ve blocked search engines, since I have them in my other list. But I just figures out two new ones to block today, http://radio.xmlstoragesystem.com/ and http://www.technorati.com/.
http://radio.xmlstoragesystem.com/ is the weblogs.com ping checking that my site has changed. I ping weblogs.com whenever I change the site. Sometimes I go there just to find random new blogs, and I figure other people do the same. But I don’t need their robot in my referrer list. I don’t like to know when someone comes from there to my site, so weblogs.com shows up in the list.
Technorati is a cool site, but they hit my site every time I come up on weblogs.com. Unfortunately blocking them means I won’t see when people come from their site to look at the site.
