I have noticed recently that if I run a sale on itch for a paid project I get a spike in traffic from Russian and Chinese websites that link to games that go on sale for free. I guess it is nice that somebody is playing my games in those times, but I have also never gotten a tip.

I am curious on what other developers' thoughts are on these sites? Are they harmful? I worry a bit about where the downloads end up, as far as being repackaged or whatever.


I know this is a thing but I haven't really been following this. Which sites do you get linked from?

 The one that has consistently been showing up in my stats has been: https://isthereanydeal.com
Another one I've been seeing is: steamcn.com/t357984-1-1

and http://gameshunt.pl/


https://isthereanydeal.com I'm aware of adding integration with us. I'll check out the others, I'm curious how they're scraping their data.
