    What is this? Where is this source? I did not do an email blast... I have over 300 visits on this one page (talking about how to fix your internet browser), I want to know where this link is...

    No idea, obviously people's emails. Only thing I can think of is your link was in a popular article and was shared via email. But then you would have a ton of traffic from the actual article.

    I do have a lot of traffic on that specific article, so you believe it was in an email share?

    Possibly. I meant more so a high profile article in the paper that all the sudden a bunch of people found.

    Those are search engine crawlers -_-

    You must have posted a link to an article or something on your page and crawlers found it.

    That's SEO at work ;)


    Now that I think about it more, it's not it. Cause they're all from mail servers.

    Either someone blasted your site with random user agent OR you're not telling everything OR you (or somebody else) blasted a link to your site through mailspam.
    Mail servers will check the content of every link you post to determine it's legitimacy. This is how all those spammer links for viagra, penis increase and shit get busted so fast without EVER hitting inbox.
