Really weird stats about my visitors...

    I have been tracking my users...

    For some reason, almost 95% of my visitors are using Mac OSX or Linux. This is over a sustained period of time, all unique people and mostly Google traffic (shows how they got to my site and their IP). My niche has NOTHING to do with either of these things, in fact it's nothing to do with computing full-stop. Any idea why this might be? I know Linux alone shouldn't be popular enough to make up almost 50% of my userbase so it makes me think there's some kind of reason and I was under the impression Windows is more popular than Mac OSX. Can I use this information in some way or is it just a useless random little tidbit?

    Have you tried accessing your site from a PC, using IE or FF? Maybe it's the case that it's just not viewable, and PC users bounce in a few seconds before they're logged.

    Thank you for your response. Indeed I have tried, I am in fact a PC user myself and I seem to be able to access my site and browse all pages from IE, FF and Google Chrome. I have managed to access the site from a couple of friend's PCs too.

    There are some PC users visiting the site, just a vast minority, but this has me worried now that the site might be faulty.

    Looks suspicious to me. You would want to look at the IP addresses of these visitors.

    Yeah, a valid point, I think. Automated visits, perhaps? For what purpose though I don't know.
