Hello Rhani,

 

thank you  and the other users very much for the contribution regarding this stalkers.

I totally share your opinion.

As far as I understood there are three solutions explained:

  • contacting pexgle and ask them to remove your domain from their database
  • register on builtwith and request to delete the domain from their database
  • the script snippet to redirect the stalkers coming from pexgle

Could you please give a quick update whether this actions helped to?

Thank you very much in advance!

 

Best regards

Hi there, i have been getting the same traffic from pexgle. I have added the code first to see if that alone works. I will update this thread with the results thank you.

Greetings @Pythonic @CollectableCorn 

 

Happy Holidays to you both and Thank You for your inquiries.🤶🎄🎅

 

I haven't tried the code because I don't have any issues with pexgle any longer. Your local chap @Mangoman posted the code and may have more tips on the function and productivity.

 

With the Pexgle issue I found emailing them resolves the issues. here is an outline you're more than welcome to use and make your own if you like. I kept my email simple and professional, asking questions that I did not know about the company, the information they obtained and what they were doing with it. For example:

 
If someone from [THE COMPANY.COM] can explain to me: 
 
  1. Why is [THE COMPANY.COM] directing regular traffic to [YOUR DOMAIN] without my consent?
  2. What information has [THE COMPANY.COM] obtained from [YOUR DOMAIN] without my consent?
  3. How is [THE COMPANY.COM] obtaining information from [YOUR DOMAIN] without my consent?
  4. How is [THE COMPANY.COM] using information it's obtained from [YOUR DOMAIN] without my consent?

Some other information I found that was helpful.

One of the Shopify Gurus gave me these Resolutions to try as well.

I hope this information is pertinent to helping to resolve issues with unwanted intruders!

Thanks to everyone providing feedback on this, my store has been hit by this site quite aggressively over the past few weeks unfortunately. I added the code a few days ago, however I can see that it didn't work as I had 12 visits from Pexgle yesterday. Next step is I've reached out to the website and have asked them to remove my domain, hopefully that will work.

I also added the code snippet and also reached out to support@pexgle.com using Rhanis mail template.

Unfortunately I am still experiencing referral from pexgle 🤔.

I have emailed the company today - still awaiting a response.

Code. It worked for a day or two but then the traffic started coming back.
I messaged them on their facebook page. They replied very quickly and said
they made an excuse as to why it was happening and added my domian to their
protected list. I have had no traffic from them since.

Having the same problem with pexgle.com all the sudden - I now added a .htaccess block domain rule, will see if that works - you can go to your webhosting service and add blocked IP ranges and domains via htaccess.

 

If that won't work I will test that code snippet posted earlier on here.

 

Thanks :)
