Are any of you guys starting to see your store being searched several times a day by this website: adlibraryspy.com

It swipes by website like 15 or more times of day messing up my analytics and I just noticed that my postscript bill is higher making me wonder if this is why. Let me know. Thanks!

Hi,

 

We've seen this with our own customers as well. I can say it's harmless. Its purpose is probably to see the keywords you're using for Facebook ads.

Thanks Terence for the reply, but what if I'm currently not running any ads, should they still be hitting my website over 15 times a day? LOL And should I add in my Google Analystics not to count it as visitors/customers/potential customers?

You are welcome.

 

You can block this through Google Analytics, but the best way is to add a block in the website's 'robots.txt' file. I don't know the exact name of the bot for this website, but I recommend reading the topic below.

 

Also, it might not be specific to you. They might be crawling the entire internet. Blocking them is the best option. Additionally, unnecessary queries to your website can slow it down. Be very careful when using 'robots.txt' though, as you could accidentally remove your Google indexes!

Hi! I have the same issue. Now I am trying to block them with the Custom JavaScript. If you want to try please follow the instructions below:

 

1. Edit Your Theme Code:
• Go to your Shopify Admin.
• Navigate to Online Store > Themes.
• Click on Actions > Edit code for your current theme.
2. Add Custom Javascript:
• Open the theme.liquid file (usually located under the Layout folder).
• Add the following JavaScript code before the closing </head> tag:

 

<script type="text/javascript">
  document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {
    var referrer = document.referrer;
    var blockedReferrers = ["adlibraryspy.com", "app.adlibraryspy.com"];
    
    blockedReferrers.forEach(function(blockedReferrer) {
      if (referrer.includes(blockedReferrer)) {
        window.location.href = "https://yourwebsite.com/block-message"; // Replace with your desired URL or a custom block message page
      }
    });
  });
</script>

 

This script checks if the referrer is one of the blocked referrers and redirects the user if it is.

Feel free to buy me a coffee if it was helpful 😉
