    Talking Really Nice but Weird Visitation Stats
    PopShops spots where I normally show 3000-'n-change hits for a seven-day period are now showing 27,000 or so - including 8000 or so hits from yesterday - 2078 hits today alone, and it's just barely 9AM.

    When the initial shock and cheering wore off, I checked other stat and analysis programs to see if there's any substantiating data. There isn't.

    Momentary issue? Hiccup? New math? The offset is not consistent.
    Be at peace,

    PS does not separate bot hits from unique visitor hits so it could be just a few new bots coming through - and maybe digging deeper. I've had hits show up on shops that are not even in use currently so maybe they are hitting cached versions too (?).

    I've had the same happen to us. There are bots that go and click on every product in a shop. Wish PS would find a way to block them!

    Bots? Seriously?? I used to see some in my stats program, but maybe they're deploying some Bots 2.0, with vastly improved stealth technology. Well, glad to see I'm at least getting visitors from SOMEwhere
