Lately I've noticed my traffic rising *insert happy dance* and I've been really keen on seeing where my visitors are coming from (HI to all you new lovely readers!). So of course I've gone investigating my traffic sources but one in particular sent my spidey senses tingling...Vampie Stat. Don't ask me what digital deity intervened but for some reason I didn't click the link, I googled the site instead...oh jeez.
|Vampire Stat on the blogger stats page|
They've got some sort of algorithm that trawls the likes of Twitter and Facebook, targeting your posts about new blog updates. They then visit your site multiple times in the hope that the poor unsuspecting blogger clicks their link and BOOM, they've got you.
So please bloggers, don't click the link! Vampire Stat isn't the only one out there, others include;
- Adsense watchdog
- 7secretsearch..adsensewatchdog!#sthash.IaQPAVdA.dpuf7 Secret Search7secretsearch..adsensewatchdog!#sthash.IaQPAVdA.dpuf
If in doubt about a traffic source, Google it first!
If you know of any other sites like the ones above be sure to let me know in the comments and I'll add them to the list above!
