What does Google Webmaster Tools say about your site? That may help you figure out which keyword(s) are bringing in more traffic or if this is fake traffic.

GWT is showing low click count as compare to Google Analytics
Few stats about traffic
1- around 450 visits daily from Google
2- All visits landing on my home page. after that they are moving to 2-3 other pages.
3- Avg time on site is around 40 second
4- Bounce rate is around 20%
5- All organic search belongs to 'not provided' keyword that means user is logged in while searching.
6- No specific IP.... all visits coming from different IPs.
7- 95% traffic is coming from US (rest from India, UK, Russia, Turkey, n other countries).
8- They are visiting my Category and tag pages after visiting my home page. Categories and Tags are not indexed in Google.

I experienced something similar recently to one of my affiliate websites. It appeared to be from some agency/company in California running a bot against my site. Have you looked at the user details for the increased visits or compared the keyword queries in GWMT to traffic data in GA?
| 4:28 pm on May 8, 2013 (gmt 0)|
Yes, I have done the comparision
GA data is showing around 450 visit per day (from 4th may) from google but WMT is showing around 70 click daily only.....
I am confused....
Why someone will do this?

I have tried to check IP addressess.....
IP addresses that are repeating belongs to microsft corp (i checked it through whois).
I don't want to block these IP as it may belong to bing bot.
I am really in a odd situation..... My blog is getting huge google traffic but i m stressed.
Will it affect my ranking (although all traffic is coming from google---- at least GA confirms it)

You have to look at Unique Visitors versus Visits. It shouldn't negatively affect you as you are not doing anything to violate quality guidelines (hopefully).

Where are the visits from (Geo location) and the source types (%)?

City - Hialeah 37% visits coming from here...
I was searching for it and found that many people are facing this issue...
It seems to be related with bingPreview

Check out the other thread concerning the lovely bingPreview... It sounds problematic but nothing too worrisome. [webmasterworld.com...]
