Telling if traffic increase is due to Big Daddy Ian Cunningham msg:725310 9:30 am on Feb 9, 2006 (gmt 0) I've had an increase in traffic since late last week, however I'm not sure if it is due to Big Daddy or the normal google SERPS.
Is there a way to distinguish between the two? I'm using Urchin for my stats software, and referrals are only down as a domain (not IP).

The IP of the referer - hmmm, I don't think so. As far as I know, browsers don't capture and share that information, unless the referring page was originally accessed via IP address rather than domain name. followgreg msg:725312 11:33 pm on Feb 9, 2006 (gmt 0)
With my little knowledge of web analytics I would say it is impossible, may be you could ask in the tracking/logging forum? finer9 msg:725313 1:32 am on Feb 10, 2006 (gmt 0)
In my webalizer stats, the BigDaddy shows as referals from one of the BigDaddy datacenter IPs (64.233.*.*) and normal SERPS show as referals from www.google.com/search
