Protect your Site Against Questionable Redirects and Frames

After reviewing statistics for my topsite blog directory, I observed traffic from a website that uses redirects and frames to exploit my website with questionable advertisements (porn). Here is the format: http://????????.com/go/?/301??/ I inserted the "?" as substitutes.

Obviously, I felt my site was being hijacked and I was miffed. But this was not the first time this happened to me.

Approximately two months ago, I emailed the webmaster three times requesting their members NOT be allowed to employ links that use frames to create banner-like ads above my pages. I never received a response to my emails, but the activity did stop until today.

Luckily, I found this script to deal with the issue. Place it within the <_head>. Here is the script's source along with a post on questionable linking.
