.htaccess RewriteCond for Spam HTTP Referrals (HTTP_REFERER)

Getting Started

Ready to block some automated spam traffic? Good.

By reviewing referrers in Google Analytics, we've put together a handy .htaccess snippet to block referral traffic from multiple referrers. These referrers are based on traffic to dozens of websites made and/or supervised by FWD:labs.




  1. Add the snippet of code to your existing .htaccess file anywhere below "RewriteEngine On" or "RewriteBase /" in your site's .htaccess file.


Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

# Paste .htaccess below
  1. Review your site to make sure your .htaccess is working; if you see any errors, revisit the code you just added
