    Hello everybody. I wanted to ask a few quick questions from folks. I will really appreciate any help.

    1. In Google analytics in the TRAFFIC SOURCE section all the sources of traffic are mentioned. For my website there are 30 to 40 views coming directly (Not from any source/refferal/organic) which is half of my daily traffic. I can't expect my website to get these many direct views at this stage. What could that be?? any refferal source that google is unable to track?

    2. A few days back I checked the TF and CF of my website, they were 7 and 15 respectively. Today I checked them and they were 20 and 20 WTF :cool: ? I did a total of three guest posts and just some normal genuine commenting on some popular blogs in the niche.

    Can anybody please check the following stats and tell me why am I getting so many direct visits (keeping in view the total visits)? Bounce rate is 100% This thing is really messing things up. I am getting this daily.

    "Direct traffic" in Google Analytics means that people are visiting your website by simply typing your URL into their web browsers and hitting Enter. Check on archive.org if your domain was not registered in the past before you registered it. Maybe it was a well known website. Or maybe some people are just checking your website.

    And if the TF and CF of your website has increased, someone probably linked to your website. Check your backlinks on backlinkswatch.com or ahrefs.com to see if you have any new ones.

    Keep in mind direct traffic is also all Apple products coming from search engine results. They blank the referrer.

    Yeah I have complete record of backlinking. I just checked the TF/CF and it is back to 11/17. Strange! My domain is fresh and was never purchased before. It comtains my name.



    Hmmmmm. That might be it but why is my 60 to 70% traffic coming only from apple? Strange....
