    So I've hit the threshold for my first adsense paycheck, and I'm excited that it will be arriving to my house soon. So what have I noticed today? Traffic coming from everywhere...or is it? I checked the analytics, and wordpress referrers. I've noticed in the past that "googleads.g.doubleclick" has been in the referrers section before, but this is just a ridiculous amount now. Also I'm in the google analytics' real time view screen. A LOT of my tag pages are being viewed as well. I know I've been doing the wikipedia style linking, but heavens, I didn't think it would make THAT much of a difference. I've attached a screen shot of the coast of Africa from GA. What area is that, and why does that area always register as "unknown"? I've been getting a bunch of traffic from keywords that I forgot about since I started the site months ago. Manual Engine Quality refresh going on?

    I know. I know. I've asked WAY too many questions, but I'm very curious.

    You are at a stage where Google re-approve or disapprove your account, claiming your money.

    A lot of people make the error of accumulating thousands of dollars without
    requesting for it until it gets to the size they dream of.

    And when they unhold the funds, their account gets close for policy violation that
    they could have resolved or known their fate from day 1.

    For the location of your traffic, can you track the IP of the location the traffic
    are coming from, if yes, use an IP Look Up like
    http://www.whatismyip.com/tools/ip-address-lookup.asp to figure it out.
