Today, so far, I've gotten 187 visits, which is almost unheard of for me. Problem is, 155 of them are marked as "direct" by Google Analytics, which is beyond unheard of and gives me no clue why I'm getting such an upsurge.
I have no idea what to make of it. Should I be excited? Concerned? The hits are roughly distributed across almost all of my hubs. What could cause this?
Someone may have "liked" it on facebook or twitter and their friends read your articles.
Articles that I like or feel others would enjoy are sometimes fb'd or twittered!
There's another thread about the same thing happening to a hubber and it had to do with bots visiting all of their hubs.
And here's a link from the other link that's a barn-burner.

Well. Someone else must have tweeted one of my hubs today, then, because I sure didn't.
Bummer. I was dubious from the start, but I still held out with the faint hope that actual humans might be enjoying my rapier wit and fart jokes.
