I hope I can explain this weird situation clearly enough to be understood. I noticed yesterday, in my private blog’s dashboard stats, a referral from another WP blog. This concerned me because the users of this blog have agreed not to post links to it anywhere, so I clicked on the link to the referral. Nowhere on that blog page could I find an active link back to my blog. BUT the weird thing is, if I point my cursor to any blank spot on that blog’s pages, I can see in the status bar that it points to my private blog’s stats page! If you click on any of these blanks spots, nothing happens … but then how does it show in my dashboard that I had referrals from that blog?
