    Makes no sense and is happening for a very long time... not using paid traffic... most is all organic!

    Like today, 256 views/183 visits just to home page... is this fake or bot traffic???

    Oh yeah...

    but shouldnt people click the content... it makes no sense at all!

    its like they look and dont click yet the site isnt hardly bad... bounce rate is 40-50% on new visitors so even that shouldnt explain why say 180 visitors and only 6 click on page after the homepage here is screenshot:

    [​IMG]

    248 is the no. of homepage visitors...
    Something is clearly not right here...

    Possible referer spam. Most bots, visit the homepage.

    Maybe your homepage is has more relevancy and optimized for the keyword intent than other pages. If user does not find it useful, then it will increase bounce rate. Optimize other pages,build links and increase relevancy.

    Home Page:
    What is your bounce rate? And the average time passed by the visitors on the main page?

    Bounce rate is the number of visitor who visit only the page and leave the website without visiting any other page of the website. Those metrics can be found in google analytics...

    If your bounce rate is 100% and your average time is 0.0s then those are bots.

    when your homepage is ranking higher than your internal pages it tends to increase bounce rate, so try to add quality backlinks on inner pages and build them with unique content.
