Why is mturk showing as a traffic source to one of my popular hubs?


I have never seen mturk (Amazon's Mechanical Turk) show up as a traffic source for a hub previously and this particular hub has several visits yesterday from there. Wondering why that might be? Seems strange. It wasn't unfeatured or anything like that and put back through QAP it's been the same since I published it earlier this year.

    That's a nice thought :) but the hub that had that traffic has nothing to do with online writing or anything I'd consider relevant to MTurkers themselves. Interesting.

    Yes I know, my hub was never unfeatured and shouldn't have been in the QAP.

    That would make more sense, but this was Mturk, so not a bot I wouldn't think, but could be :) Interesting.

    Thanks :) seems Matthew did reply. Didn't think my hub was in QAP, but ok!
