A client of mine is receiving traffic from domain names which he wants to stop. The trouble I have is that they are using a 301 redirect which our server is just seeing as a normal web hit from the visitor. No referer is picked up in the logs either so blocking them via the relatively normal method of mod_rewrite won't work. Nor will blocking the hosting servers IP as again, the traffic in Apache is showing as coming from a standard visitor.
Is there any other way of blocking this sort of traffic?
Example Apache output for a visit which has been 301'd from another domain:
my_ip_here - - [09/Jun/2011:18:01:49 +0100] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 14012 "-" "Wget/1.12 (linux-gnu)"
