SPAM : Adsense Watchdog, Zombiestat, Vampirestat, Villainstat and Uglystat Blog Traffic

If you have a blog and check to see where the traffic to your blog originates, you may notice traffic from websites called Vampirestat.com, Adsensewatchdog.com, Villainstat.com, Uglystat.com and/or Zombiestat.com. First off, don't click on them to find out why they are sending you traffic.

Neither Adsensewatchdog, nor any of these others have anything whatsoever to do with Google or Google AdSense and are essentially spam sites that use automated traffic to blogs to attract clicks to their own sites from blog owners such as you. Once you're at their site, at a minimum, you'll be fed ads. At worst, you might fall victim to malevolent code that seeks to infect your computer with who knows what (although I haven't verified that these particular sites are seeking to plant anything on your machine).

Stay away. Traffic from these sites won't affect your standing with the real Adsense, so just ignore them. 

Adsense Watchdog and the others can be traced to: 

Protected Domain Services - Customer ID: NCR-3559746
P.O. Box 6197
Denver

80206
US
Phone: +1.3037474010
Email Address: [email protected]

Which is just a company that holds domain names for anonymous clients. If the domain owner wishes to stay hidden behind such a firewall of anonymity, that's should be another red flag.
