    Started a blog close to two weeks ago. Traffic has gradually been increasing but at a rapid rate.
    Last few days i have been sitting at 450 UV's (+/- 50) yesterday i got just over 1,000 UV's.
    All my traffic is coming from social networking sites, well that's what i think. Is there anyway i can check?
    Maybe someone is spamming my site, i'm not sure.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Google Analytics. If you're paranoid about google knowing where and how you get your traffic you can use StatCounter. Those are the two i have experience with and they are both quite good.

    How are you tracking your UV's at the moment if not with GA?

    Eventually Google Analytics wins, so you can go with GA without having any doubt :drive:

    Google analytics, or if you use Wordpress then JetPack has stats built in which tells you where you referrals are coming from.

    Google Analytics is the best way to find out

    Again for Wordpress: Statpress is ugly as sin but tracks Spiders, so if you aren't seeing what you want in GA or JetPack, it can give you some clues.
