Is anyone else getting traffic from this site?
I am getting traffic from it but I am not sure what the site is or if it's a new search engine of some kind. I do know it has something to do with a Chinese application. So I am wondering if this is a good or bad thing.
It's what they call a spam referral. Sites like that link to legitimate sites to attract attention.
I suggest staying away from it in case the site has malware or viruses.
If you use Google Analytics, I also suggest using the filter function to get rid of them from your reports. Otherwise, they can distort the numbers.
Thanks for the warning. That is what I was wondering. Is it a bad thing that we are getting traffic from them?
Spam referrals don't offer any value with readership or ad revenue.
They are bad if they send a lot of traffic over and over again because they corrupt your analytic reports. They are especially bad if you go to their sites out of curiosity, your anti-virus software isn't up to date and you get hit with malware or viruses.
Ok thanks. I was also wondering if they can get your personal information off of other sites that most of us have connected to this site like Facebook, Linkin. I read that they have something to do with data mining. I am not tech savy with this stuff.
Thanks for answering me. Let me know if you figure out what it is. It sees to be connected to this site https://www.bytedance.com/ which I see in my stats.
They only thing they can do is get you to click and share their link. That is all they want. I suggest deleting the post where you linked to them.
I never linked anything to them that I know of. They may have picked up a link from some other social site where I shared the articles. But it doesn't sound like it is anything to worry about.

I've tried to do everything right with it -- arranged it so ads would be at the top, added some nice personal pics and links, I just added some RSS feeds ... and it's getting almost no traffic. My Staten Island hub is...

yahoo is probably the second search engine after google. Does anyone get traffic from yahoo? Does it worth the time you register your hub to yahoo?

I recently signed up for a TripAdvisor.com account. The thought of using it to promote any of my travel hubs didn't initially occur to me when I signed up. My husband and I like to read reviews of potential travel destinations on TripAdvisor when we're planning a trip. The travel bug has been...
