    I couple months back I uploaded a couple files on different topics to 4shared, and I have noticed that one of these files has been getting solid traffic for like over a month now, and I don't see how or where it is coming from, the file's page is not ranking on Google basically at all for any keywords, and I have not post this download anywhere or anything to get this traffic. Anyone know much about these file upload sites and why I might be getting traffic like this ?

    Do you have Google Analytics installed? Or does your hosting have AWstats? You can check traffic sources through them, or any other analytic tool.

    EDIT: Sorry, was half asleep - didn't realise this was on 4Shared rather than your own website.

    Try looking for backlinks to the file, you might find someone sharing it on a forum somewhere.

    I think he's looking at the "downloads" accumulated from 4shared.

    Someone probably just leeched it.

    You can check your traffic statistics by installing Google Analytics. On the other hand you just need to contact your hosting master and ask for AWstats. Surely these will be helpful for you to check the traffic of your website.

    Yeah I'm just talking about 4shared guys, there is nothing on a website of mine. But it's not just this one file, I have noticed all 4shared files I upload just naturally get downloads a couple days after I upload even though I do nothing? What's up with that?

    4Shared links rank for some low competition keywords sometimes. That could be it.

    I have been checking all the keyword variations and none are ranking high.
