Bizarre spike in home page hits… is this spamming?

    Ever since about March 28 or so, my home page has been getting an inordinate amount of hits from a very small group of visitors. One day I got a bizarre spike of over 5,000 views to my home page, but only about 5 visitors. (Oddly, the huge spike in home page views came from the U.S., which is not where you typically would be finding spammy hits coming from.)

    Since then, I have had unusually large numbers of hits to my home page every day (in the hundreds, not thousands) but only 4-5 visitors each day. This is WAY above my usual traffic on the site and the low number of corresponding visitors is quite curious.
