    Strange Referrer
    My website got 500 hits from a referrer this month. I checked this referrer and found that:
    - The web belongs to Korea,
    - Alexa Rank #13,808,170,
    - The web maybe for sale,
    - The content focuses on coupon ads,
    - The web has a few sponsored listings (Yahoo?),
    - The web pages have wide empty rooms.

    I could be wrong but I doubt that their hits were real hits as I could not find any link to my website.

    Does anyone out there have any idea of this kind referrer, please?
    Don't ask why the ball doesn't come.

    It also happens when they frame your site's content to use for PPC redirect landing pages. Their site looks empty or has nonsense content when the campaign is not live. I believe that some of the URL changes recently made by G were to help prevent that activity. (?)
