Stats question

    Hi,
    When checking my stats I sometimes see a message in the 'Referrers' section that states that 'People have clicked links from these pages to get to your site'. The links then shown in 'Referrer Views' are really bizarre and when I look at the webpages myself can see no way of how they could have clicked on anything that would link to my site.
    For example, today I have a link from here, apparently:
    bonsaicareonline.com/

    My blog is not about bonsais! when I look at the site there is no link to mine.
    Could some kind person explain?
    Many thanks!
    Rosalind

    The blog I need help with is rosalindkent.wordpress.com.

  3. Here is a thread on the Spam Referrers: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/whats-up-with-all-the-spammy-referrers?replies=26

    It is a feature of slime balls - don't click on the links so they don't get the traffic count.

    Thank you! I am new to blogging and that makes a lot of sense!
