This paper only demonestrate the problem of redirect spam without any solutions. Authors categoriez redirection spam into 3 categories:
- HTTP status code
- META refresh
They mentioned that finding type 1 and 2 is very simple. But few works has been done on type 3.
They used blog spot as their data set and try to find amount of type 3 redirection spam.
As paper suggestion, there are other category of redirection. such as server side redirection. so future study in thies area would be intrested.
