    I've never seen this before. In google ananlytics it's showing referrals from my own site. What does that mean, how can I be referring myself?

    It's called the ultimate self flagellation technic. Works wonders for gay webmasters. :) Seriously though it comes from internal linking to a page. Check your side bar to see if it shows as a "Recent Post" or something.

    okay, I'm just not getting the difference between a regular link pointing to a page on my site and an internal linking pointing to a page on my site. What's the difference? How does one show up as a referral (internal link) and the other does not?
