    Hi! So back in May i started a blog and made a few pages and a couple of posts. Just to get the feel of SEO. I bought a domain with the exact keyword frase in it, just to try it out.

    my domain name was, my(insertkeyword).com

    So today I logged in on the cpanel to check awstats, i planned on ranking for the keyword only, but turned out I was ranking on google page 1 for the whole keyword domain name. my (insertkeyword), instead of just (keyword). So I was getting 2632 uniqes the last week according to awstats. So i'm like cool, thats nice. And went to look for traffic source, the google page 1 spot only gave me like 1 hit the last week. Something must be wrong i though. So I looked at robots, traffic source etc. Here is what I found.

    Almost all hits come from russia, Unknown robot (identified by empty user agent string)
    15,344 hits. Top Url. /wp-admin.php. Connect to site from: Direct Adress/bookmark/Link in email.... Browser: Firefox.
    Is someone just f-ing with me. I dont get it. Help.

    Well I think I might be doing something of value at least. I looked the past months and I have seen new backlinks to my site, even though I have done no link building at all. Feels kind of good :)

    Well, i don't think you can rank without building a single backlinks, but am not 100% sure. However, what i know is that the backlinks are from website reviews portal, that kind of analysis your website, picking newly registered domains, among others.

    It's just bots trying to access your website, don't stress about it. Keep learning and tweaking your website and you'll get where you want to be :)

    I thought so guys :). Has anyone tried doing backlinks on youtube? Seems like they have a high pr which could benefit rankings. But Im not sure, will do this manually though and place relevant links on videos related to my topic.!

    The Russian hits are probably a brute force password checker bot trying to crack your admin password. Be careful that your password isn't easy. These bots will try hundreds of combinations and because Wordpress doesn't by default lock out users they can just keep trying passwords.
