What to do with weird links pointing to my site?
« on: November 20, 2019, 04:04:35 PM »
Hey guys,

I started noticing this already 3 weeks ago - there were days that 10+ links were added to my site and at first, I thought it's a coincidence.

But then this happened again a week ago and then yesterday once again.

At first, someone was adding links to the comments they made - which was pretty clever cause they get those comments indexed.

Here's an example:

But now someone is adding weird links to my home-page - just in one day there were 10 new links added and all are pointing the main page -

Those links are super weird and makes no sense:
- '
- '
**All the URLs are hidden in the comment section

So, I wanted to ask if anyone have experience with dealing with such links and what can you suggest about getting them removed?

I performed a scan with Broken Link Checker,

You have 2000 links of which 112 URLs failed.
Status   URL   Source link text
403 Forbidden   -СС+to+BTC/DE/Step+4.2.PNG   img/src
403 Forbidden   -СС+to+BTC/DE/Step+4.3.PNG   img/src
and loads and loads more from - etc. etc.
404 Not Found   -   link/href
404 Not Found   -   link/href
400 Bad Request   -   link/href
400 Bad Request   -   link/href

-1 Not found: The host name in the certificate is invalid or does not match   -   a total loss of your funds.

Then 517 recommendations towards improvement ->
