I've been getting a ton of traffic from a site called k. co .il (no spaces). It looks like a site from Israel and its in Hebrew. It's some kind of internet explorer trivia game.
It seems legit, but I can't imagine why it would be linked to several of my Hubs. It's nice to have the traffic. I just hope there's nothing strange going on.
Any cause for alarm?
If they have forums, perhaps someone posted one of your links. Maybe it was in a comments section? I get random traffic all the time, never had a problem.
This is from LinkedIn:

I would not worry at all! It sounds legit, and if they're into search engine/social media, it is probably common to get traffic from there. I have never received traffic from them, but my traffic sources come from all over the world. Russia, UK, India, Canada. It's common.
Fascinating! Thank you for the update - this is very helpful. I look forward to seeing more traffic from abroad. Excellent!
Whew, good to know. I was nervous about certain traffic sites, and I didn't know if it was a good thing or bad thing.
Hi Eric! I too at times get traffic from personal domain of few people, strange and looking for answers. Actually the internet world is expanding and people have find several ways to interact and earn. Maybe this thing has to do something with earning through referral.
Because bursts of traffic from certain types of undesirable sources should be reported to Google and HubPages. Even if you didn't ask for the traffic, if it is against TOS it can look like you're up to something fishy and you can lose your Adsense account.
If they're an "SEO" site and they follow Black Hat techniques, it can harm you. We had a malicious attack when I first joined from something called "Skylancers." They began giving tons of hits to some hubs that were getting good traffic. I have no idea why they were doing that - at first, seeing a bit of a surge, and being new, I was excited. Very quickly, I could tell it was abnormal traffic and I reported it to the site, as well as to Google. So, if you see abnormal traffic, beware! But a nice increase could be exactly that - just a nice increase!

How many of you use social media like FaceBook to attract traffic to your websites? What social media do you use? Is it worth spending time?

I like to watch the real time analytics and where visitors come from. Lately, I've been getting views from the middle of the ocean, just West of Africa and a little under the horn. Google maps doesn't even...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
