    One of three money sites is acting very strange. I recently set up 3 sites, same theme, same SEO techniques in similar quantities delivered.

    One site, which I knew would do well, is already on page 2 for a very high traffic keyword, and is gaining tons of backlinks every time I refresh in MS. Other site is doing as expected, has ranked in plenty of places from page 5 up to page 100. The third one is the weird one. It's getting an abnormal amount of traffic. Somehow I missed getting this site into analytics. I have it set up now, but no stats yet.

    I decided to look on my VPS's log file and determined that 91.6%, or 3,000 page views, were from Direct Address. Meaning it was typed in directly. No really dominating IP source, top hit pages are /feed/, then evenly distributed amongst various articles posted on the site...

    WTH BHW?
