Thursday and Friday I had a pretty huge spike in pageviews: 224 and 308 respectively. I did publish new posts on both days, and typically I've been seeing daily page views around 150-170 on such days.
I did notice however that most of the views were to the homepage and not actual posts - though there was a decent amount of traffic to the new posts as well.
I also have been seeing a lot more Spam comments as well - like 40 over the last 2 days when I normally get like 2-3 a day.
Now I was pretty happy with these 2 new posts and though they were pretty good, so I was happy to see the spike in traffic, but I'm just wondering if it was really more to do with an increase in spam than anything else.
The blog I need help with is themainland.net.
