Blogging stats that baffle me.

I have a blogger account for my writing. I've made an effort to make it interesting and useful for anyone who happens by. I do like to check stats to see where my traffic is coming from and some of that data makes no sense to me at all. My advertising is minimal. I advertise to friends and family on Facebook and I do get a little traffic from co-workers from my place of employment. I do have a link on MyLot in my profile and I do get a few page views from here. There are however about four referring websites that I cannot figure out any connection to me or my online activities. Not only that I get significant page views from Russia, Germany, Latvia and the Ukraine. Not complaining mind you. Just puzzled. Maybe I should market my writing in those places once my book first book is released.

I have three blogs, two of which I almost consistently post to and I get some strange traffic stats, too, from sites that have nothing to do with my topics and from foreign countries that seem strange. I don't know why, but if you figure it out, I'd sure like to know!

I wonder if I can search an answer to that. I don't know whether I've tried much in the past. If I ever figure it out, I'll be sure to let you know.

They are probably learning English and your writing is so good it is helping them. Also they like your writing, and not just that,they are interested in what you write. Are those referring websites have anything to do with what you write about, or what you do?

Actually the referring websites don't seem to have any connection to my writing in any way. That's one of the things about this that baffles me. I appreciate the visits and I hope they are getting some value out of the site. I really don't like wasting people's time.

i, too, have a blog of my own and like you, i get baffled by some referring sites i don't know where they came from. i am also not complaining, i also just wonder why there are some links that i don't know the origin. haha! quite cool, yes? i'm thankful by the traffic it gives my blog but it's just baffling how it happens.
