Hi Bill and everyone,
Guess what! I got a little braver today and looked for contact information for the adult content site. The site is in Russia. I emailed the owner today and asked him to remove the link. He wrote back right away and showed me what the link said. You need to log in to see his site (I didn't want to do that.) The site somehow combines adult content with stuffed animals. Ugh. But the reference that was bringing all kinds of visitors to my site seems innocent enough. It just indicated that I have a site that sells plushies. So that is why I was getting all those hits yesterday. People who were looking for stuffed animals (hopefully not to have s*x with.) I wrote back and told him not to worry about it. After all, I did have an upswing in sales yesterday. Maybe that was why.
So, it appears no one was trying to steal my site. There was one other troubling issue, however. In investigating the site and its owner, I discovered he also has a love for programming. He has several websites. One of them offers visitors software used to download whole websites. Hmmmmm.
