From definition Cron is a time-based job scheduler in Unix-like computer operating systems.
Using cron you can schedule jobs (commands or scripts) to run periodically at fixed times, dates, or intervals.

Crontab is file on your server with cron jobs to run periodically.

Most agressive SPAMMY referrals

January 14, 2015 at 7:42 am

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.
