Where the heck is this huge spike in traffic coming from?

    I built a site a while back. Made it pretty nice looking and then went on to other things. It gets very very minor traffic.

    Yesterday it had 500 UV out of the blue.
    Today it is up to about 1000 UV.

    It usually gets maybe 1-5 visitors a day.

    I looked at the traffic it and it says it is coming from google adsense.
    http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads

    Is this some sort of mistake?

    BTW I have google ads on the site. They usually average about $2 a click. I am receiving clicks and they are averaging 2 cents from all this traffic. I am guessing this is because MOST of the traffic is from other countries. Shoot maybe all of this traffic is from other countries.

    Anyone have any predictions?

    CTR is only about 2%

    Does it show anything at all in your referring stats?
    Is it ranking well for any keywords?
    Is it in a niche where something big has happened recently?

    Can't really say much as I've no clue on the extra details ;)
