    weird urls in my referral stats
    In my SAS "last page clicked" stats, I've just seen this url: "http://www.iaea.org" as "last referring page" on a bunch of my SAS merchants. This is the same place that was in my referral logs last year and that finally stopped showing up after I contacted the webmaster who actually answered my email about it and told me he knew it was happening but couldn't explain it, now this URL is back in my SAS logs??!!! WTF?! They are listed as MY last referring page. How is that possible? How & WHY? The link points to some nucleur or atomic energy site, which is even weirder.

    Does anyone know what this is about or can someone at SAS look into it? The offending URL certainly isn't mine but I saw it eating up my bandwidth for months last year in my referral domain logs.

    I would sure love to know what it is and how this is possible.
    Peace,

    Rexanne,

    Am looking into this for you along with a couple others who emailed this morning about the same issue. It does, however, appear to be cosmetic (no damage to tracking of actual sales) in nature... I'll try to find out some more info and post here later...
    Thanks,

    Thanks Brian!

    If it helps, Zeus has posted some additional information in another thread I started about this same issue here: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=69758

    Another weird thing is that this URL is showing up as MY referring page for merchants who's links I don't even have on my site yet.
