Most agressive SPAMMY referrals

Many webmasters don’t even imagine how many spammy and hacking referrals are trying to access their websites.
Here’s definition of spam referral according to Wikipedia

Referrer spam (also known as log spam or referrer bombing[1]) is a kind of spamdexing (spamming aimed at search engines). The technique involves making repeated web site requests using a fake referer URL to the site the spammer wishes to advertise.[2] Sites that publish their access logs, including referer statistics, will then inadvertently link back to the spammer's site. These links will be indexed by search engines as they crawl the access logs.

Such definition doesn’t end mischievousness of many other referals, especially video and content downloaders.

For this reason we decided to share our list of most harmful referrals that you can block in your website’s .htaccess file. Here’s ready code t copy & paste on top of .htaccess file.

From www to non-www and opposite. It really matters!

This is very important to have website accessible only as one URL schema, with or without “www”.
Even Google says about it

 If you don't specify a preferred domain, we may treat the www and non-www versions of the domain as separate references to separate pages.

In short words this means that you risk duplicated pages if you don’t care about preferred URL.

Site URL is also very important for javascript, including one that Nuevoplayer setup code use.
If your site is accessed with “www” prefix, but javascript attempts to read feeds from URL without “www”, this will end with javascript Cross Domain Policy error, and it may completely fail to execute, will not load HTML5 player.

The solution is simple.
