Sometimes we just use iptables to get rid of the rogue ahrefs spam site, but aside from being a pest I cannot state that they are doing any other damage. The hits look like this: 54.x.x.x “Get /bible/18_028.HTM http/1.1” 404 | However our associate that also gets hit by the rogue ahrefs site is being hit with non-biblical hits (go figure). | Don’t bother getting messed up with ahrefs, it’s just another bad affiliation that will come back to bite you sooner or later in my opinion. | When I say “hits”, I mean HUNDREDS and sometimes thousands in a 24 hour period. This is just another hacker site. They’ve been hitting our server for over 2 years now and I’ve been MORE than patient with these ahref people (as a matter of fact I just left their site…pressing “contact” on ahrefs site brings up a chat box where I have just concluded another cease and desist request, one of MANY).
