Blog stats


For a month I had a different template for the blog that was a little flashier and all of a sudden I had almost ten times as many clicks, now I changed it back to the old format and the statistics have returned to normal. But there were not ten times as many people looking at the blog, but the template generates more clicks, handy if you want to earn money through advertisments I suppose (because you get payed according to the traffic you generate on your blog).

The russian web site listed under traffic sources (domar) is what I learned a referrer spam. They do this with hundreds or thousands of blogs (with bots) to show up as a link in the stats and thus improve the search engine ranking with thousands of blogs linking to their site.
