    "I got 3300 visits from a Porn/Virus site which i dont know ,can this penalize me?"

    If getting visitors from Porn/Virus site sites would penalize, then people will start putting their competitors links on Porn/Virus sites in order to get them penalized.

    Nope, you won't get penalized. Well, you shouldn't do.

    Enjoy the bad traffic.

    You shouldn't get penalised. Something like this happened with one of my sites and I experienced no penalty.

    Well, that will teach you to keep your hands a little more busy, and keep those dirty sites at bay.

    I would think the worst effect it would have on you was using server resources at the time the traffic "came". :D

    links shouldn't do harm, but if they will start click your ads...

    Did you verify that the porn/virus page actually has a link to your site? I'm guessing that it doesn't and those "visits" are the work of a bot. It's called referrer spam. I'd ban the referrer with .htaccess in that case - it's just wasting your bandwidth and cluttering up your referrer logs.

    It is only very annoying:(, your stats have spammy visits, distracting you from your own. And all in all such traffic is useless... The only thing that would penalize you is -------> linking back to that site :D

    Whenever you are receiving great traffic you should consider it to be a good thing
    regardless of where the traffic is coming from.

    I don't know but are you just being arrogant with what you experience or just playing dumb about it? we all know that none will be penalized with how many traffic you drive or even how many one way links your site has...

    It's referrer spam. Chances are javascript did not load and adsense would not detect it as a visit. Regardless, adsense will not penalize you for this.

    If you keep getting traffic from that bad site, block them in .htaccess.

    If you run Google AdWords and the traffic is robots generated - that can endanger your profits...
