Why is Russia so interested in my website?

    I kid you not.

    They don't like us folks in the US very much. leastwise that's been my news media impression.

    At first I thought the majority intention was nefarious, now I am not so sure.

    Anyone else getting visitors from Russia?

    Most likely referrer spam: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referer_spam

    I am getting a ton of Russian referer spam on most of my websites and blogs right now.

      Well God bless and thank you! I suspected some such nonsense. Thanks for the confirmation!

        The good news it that, while annoying, it does no harm to your hubs.

          And it certainly makes my traffic stats purdy. Blogspot tracking versus GA tracking are in entirely different worlds. Fine with it.
