    is this common?
    it seems like if the traffic is so much higher that i should just pay wordpress.com to host my blogs instead of hosting them myself...

    wordpress.com is an authority site. it's trusted a lot more than your domain, and has established links.... they also have a network of blog sites/ping sites that are used as well as spiders that crawl it constantly. it's a great bet for hosting...but keep in mind that they can take away your hosting account an any time... noticed that your Blackhat SEO Tips and Tricks blog is already under review and has been taken down. Make sure that when you post screenshots next time NOT to show the name of the blog in the picture.... reps from big name sites (like wordpress.com or google) do browse BHW frequently. :) Oh yeah, the stats from that site (wordpress.com) are not all human visitors either..... keep that in mind.

    i dont mind it getting closed it was all a test...
    it was a free blog and i originally was testing a scraper...
    even if half of the traffic was spiders which i doubt that still seems like alot of traffic for 4 days with no backlinks or anything...
    ive also been banned from the wordpress.com forums...
