Sorry if I'm repeating something that's been dealt with. I've just read the last few weeks' back posts about stats and haven't found an answer to my question.
In the last two days, I've seen a hugely dramatic increase in views of one particular post of mine. Since I wrote it in January, it's gotten 2-5 hits per day. The Blog Stats count two days ago for it jumped to 92, then yesterday to 179, and it's headed up again so far today. The Referrer page list doesn't show any unexpected new activity or the source of all the new hits. Many of these new views appear to be coming from search terms; has something changed that makes my page more visible to search engines?
But none of these new hits -- not one -- has generated a comment, so I'm wondering if they're being caused by some sort of error, or if for some reason search results are being counted rather than actual visits. It's not a huge deal; I'm just curious about what's up.
I've just added SiteMeter, but apparently it won't show me the URLs visitors come from, so I'm not sure it will help me figure out what's up. Thanks for any insight.
