Lately I've been seeing in my blog statistics, that there's traffic coming from a website called intensewebvisitors. I found out with a Google search that this is a traffic exchange program. I know full well that participating in a program like this and having traffic come to a website or blog that has Google Adsense ads is against the Adsense TOS. But I didn't add my blog to the directory on said website.
So I went and disabled Google Adsense ads and took down the Google Adsense for search, too - I didn't want to risk anyone clicking them. I then sent the site an email using a seldom-used email address, telling them to delete my blog from the directory. All was fine for a few days and I didn't see any new traffic coming from the website - until today. It seems to have resumed.
Any other ideas on what I can do to stop this? I'm just worried that visitors that come to this blog might go through to some other sites I've linked to that run Adsense ads. I could enable the option in Blogger that only blog owners or people I invite can view the blog - but that tends to kill blog traffic. Is it possible to block people coming from this site; block an IP - using Blogger/BlogSpot?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Is it allowed to do traffic exchange? In my opinion there is no violation because it will be exchanged with human not the robot and we are also watching their articles in return.But will hubpages allowed that or not?
