    What on Earth?!!!
    I've been contributing to the other rant thread about "referral log spam but this in ridiculous.

    In my SAS "last page clicked" stats, I've just seen this url: "http://www.iaea.org" as "last referring page" on a bunch of SAS merchants. This is the same place that was been in my referral logs last year and that finally stopped showing up, now it's back in my SAS logs??!!! WTF?! They are listed as MY last referring page.How is that possible? Do they take my aff code and spam THAT? How & why?

    Anyone know what this is about?
    Peace,

    I've been wondering the same thing for years. I'm seen them on all my sites, clicking on the links. It can't be their employees looking for my product line so I guess they have a web crawler looking for something.
    I don't think they spam, just wasting our bandwidth.

    Thank you for replying Zeus. I'm baffled. I don't understand how their site is showing up as a "last page clicked" in my SAS stats though. Those stats are telling me where the last page on MY site the merchant link was clicked. It's a very random group of merchants, too. Some are active and have been getting clicks lately but some are on pages where there is very little traffic so it's not coming from the same page.
    Peace,

    Rexanne - Those stats are telling me where the last page on MY site the merchant link was clicked.
    I've seen http://www.iaea.org as the referer on my SAS stats, too. May be, it's the way their spider is configured. I've never seen one of my links on their website. I looked before expecting a PageRank boost. (They have a pagerank of 8)
    Look also here: http://www.iaea.org/inis/ws/
    "This page enables you to query our database of links to nuclear related web pages. The search index is updated weekly and contains keywords from our local database as well as keywords taken from the targeted external web pages." They need an automated tool to do that.

    I've been getting those iaea.org ones in my logs for DONKEYS YEARS.

    Never figured out what it was all about. Gave up trying.
