S3-semalt-blocklist-policy

An S3 policy to block known Semalt referrals from accessing your Jekyll/Octopress blog.

The Semalt referral spam shit was getting annoying and since I just moved my Jekyll site from Github-Pages to S3 I figured I'd look for a solution.

I found a short policy here that blocked semalt.com referral traffic from accessing a static site hosted on S3 so I adapted it to include all known semalt sites that I could find on the web as well as from my own logs.

The policies block variations and subdomains of the given sites: ie semalt.com, semalt.com/anything, randomstringsemalt.com, www.semalt.com, www.semalt.com/anything

Use

Copy and past the contents of blocklist.txt to your S3 bucket policy and change the two instances of YOURBUCKETNAME to the actual name of your bucket.
