Referrers?

  1. I tried to read up on this topic on the help page but does anyone know anything else about the Referrals section? I keep getting this Facebook link (My Facebook has a link to my blog) of this guy who I went to school with on my referrals like EVERYDAY and does that mean he keeps checking out my blog? Cuz I honestly haven't talked to him in over a year and I'm just wondering what the referrals actually mean? Could this be someone going to his facebook- seeing me as his friend- and clicking on it, and then the blog link on my page? Sorry if this is confusing but it's just so bizarre.

  2. Hi there!

    The referrers section lists other blogs and web sites that link to your blog. A view is counted as a referrer when a visitor of the other site clicks a link and lands on a URL of your blog.

    That means the link you are seeing in your referrals section is the location where a link to your blog was showing. Someone clicked on it and came to your blog from there.
