    never happened to me before but i think thats from the Google DIsplay Network or Adplanner
    https://www.google.com/adplanner

    People get into adplanner to see websites niches and stats on traffic, maybe Adplanner is displaying your site on their list and poeple are clicking on it to see a preview, again never happened to me before im just speculating

    Do you have affiliates that could be linking direct to you via ads?

    Google Placement, just be happy for the traffic since it is not costing you.

    Are you advertising with Adwords? That traffic is from people clicking on adsense ads displayed in sites, based on the content they have.
