I don't know about you guys, but I get a kick out of checking my stats and seeing which posts have gotten the most lookie-loos, how many people checked out my blog today, and where people link from.
But a couple of days ago, I started noticing some...odd...referring URLs. Porno URLs, to be specific. I saw all the X-es and was like, "WTF????" I didn't believe it at first. I thought, surely I'm mistaken, and these aren't REALLY porn sites. So, yes, I actually clicked on the URL and...yep, that's some porn, alright.
Apparently I've been getting 7-8 hits per day from at least two different pornographic websites. I glanced through my previous posts to see if there are any words or phrases that might have triggered such a thing. The only thing that jumped out at me was from my previous Creativity Exercise: "Q: Do you like happy endings? A: I don't frequent massage parlors, thank you." Ok, so maybe Google might mistake that for a triple-x keyword. Whopsie-doodle!
But while I didn't exactly stick around to explore the inner workings of said porn site, I don't remember seeing a 'google search' bar there, either. So why would a porno site refer its clientele to a writing blog? Or anywhere else, for that matter...don't they want them to stay there? Is it some weird advertising mix-up?
I'm not even mad; I'm just curious.
Any ideas why this might be happening? Have any of you notice odd referring URLs or websites in your blogger statistics?
