    Sorry if this is in the wrong section but couldn't find any forums for analytics. Anyone have any idea why this suddenly happened. Is it something I should be worried about? My other stats seem in-line with what I usually see (bounce rate a good bit better, not sure if that's related)

    Seriously. Anyone got any ideas? That traffic is mostly from social - one of my posts got shared a lot(by real people) - and the ad impressiosn are being counted so this seems really weird

    Did you bought any website traffic service recently?
    I hope some one redirected a fake user from different IP's (proxies).

    It's bog standard Google Analytics. And the traffic, as far as I know, is completely legit and above board. One of my posts was shared quite a bit on Twitter and Facebook and that's where the traffic is coming from. The traffic was fairly diversified and I could see people browsing in real time.

    I can't think of what could be causing it. Is there anything on the site-side, say ads or widgets, that could theoretically stop Google from being able to log page visits?
