semalt-blockerIs Semalt’s crawler disrupting your analytics data? This WordPress plugin redirects that traffic away to a URL of your choice!

This plugin was developed by Alex Moss based on an idea by Rishi Lakhani. In a post written for Refugeeks Rishi writes about how to understand referer spam from issues with skewed analytical data due to culprits such as Semalt. This plugin deals with Semalt’s referer spam specifically by redirecting any traffic from their server to a URL that you can choose. Best of all it only takes 30 seconds to install and set up!


  1. Download the plugin direct from the Plugin Page at WordPress.
  2. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  3. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin
  4. Check all the settings.
  5. Hit Update!

Enjoy and remember to give us a 5 star review 🙂
