    I saw in my website analytics that amazon from seattle is visiting my site quite often. Its a blackhat site so not sure why amazon is coming to my site directly. Any ideas? A bit worried.

    Can you check the IPs of those amazon visitors? If they start with 54. they are actually people who visit your website using amazon cloud servers and they may want to do it depending on what your site is. You can get a cloud server easily there for free. All of those IPs when checked shows that it's from amazon.

    You're screwed. I'd put a banner up telling them "I'm sorry, I will never do blackhat again!" and hope for the best. ;)
