Squarespace lets me see incoming referrals. So, if you link to me and someone clicks it, I see that they came to me through you. I get a shit ton of referrals from scam sites.
What’s the point of this? I’ve checked out a couple of them, just to see and it doesn’t seem that I’m actually being linked to. I get probably fifty to a hundred a day and they usually come in at two or three different times per day so that I can easily tell that they’re fake.
Someone explain to me, what good does that do them? I only clicked back through to investigate for this blog post, otherwise, I just ignore them. Other than betting on the off-chance that I’ll click through, is there some other purpose served by linking to me?
