View Full Version : blocking stumbleupon referral?

03-01-2010, 12:04 AM
My website was added to stumble upon against my will, and now I'm getting some lame traffic from it.

Is there any way to block this site from linking to my website?

They said they won't do it.

Is there any reason you don't want traffic...?

P.S., you don't have any "right" for people not to link to you, so don't be annoyed at StumbleUpon--it may just be their policy.

Haha thats funny stuff, your the first I've seen trying to get rid of traffic...

Create your own account for the website, add your website domain and some subpages over and over. Get your mates to down thumb them. Stumbleupon has an anti-spam, bad site marker and will probably label it and blacklist.

Since you don't like stumbleupon, you might want to also disallow robot/spider crawls too so no search engines like google find it. You might get more lame traffic!
