Hello,

I'm sorry don't know where to ask this question.

Why do some websites with no content just with html links link to your website?

I don't click on the links that show up in my awstats and there I saw a website that I never seen before with a long domain name. When I visited the website there's a list of 100 or more links to different types of website. I also saw a porn site linking to my site.

Perhaps to make the pages look more 'legitimate' in the eyes of Google.

Thank you for the replies.

I've already armed myself with a suggestion that someone gave me to use google's disavow backlinks also I found a code to add to htaccess file that can redirect the traffic from the links back to the website that is sending it.

That's very common and I'm betting most folks don't even realize this happens as frequently as it does. Sounds like you've already got this under control.

Thank you for the reply SenseiSteve,

I have another question.

How does big websites handle this sort of thing? Do they just ignore it and they use google disavow to get these website to stop linking to them?

I have had that for as long as I've been running websites. There are too many such aggregators out there to waste my time fighting them.

I do absolutely nothing about it. I just focus on the content that is posted on my resources, that's all.

This is thoroughly covered by Google in this article.

The following paragraph is important, as you don't always have to use the disavow tool:

Quote:
This is an advanced feature and should only be used with caution. If used incorrectly, this feature can potentially harm your site’s performance in Google’s search results. We recommend that you disavow backlinks only if you believe you have a considerable number of spammy, artificial, or low-quality links pointing to your site, and if you are confident that the links are causing issues for you. In most cases, Google can assess which links to trust without additional guidance, so most normal or typical sites will not need to use this tool.
