xcoder, looks like you've joined our club! I've checked our foreign visits & some are from their own country & others are from google.com. Nevermind, it's Google's 14th birthday and we have a silly bloody cake on the homescreen. Joy, it was our 10th birthday in business this year, I doubt we'll see 11 at this rate. I'm not one to say "Google is broken" but when you see some of the junk traffic/results that are out there it's hard to ignore. Even Product Search is full of spam now with listings to products taking users to a price finder website which isn't even live yet(just a holding page!) rather than ANY product page! (which kinda smarts when we had our feeds disabled like many others for over a week with no explanation from Google).
One thing I have noticed is one stats program we use lists the referer URL if it isn't blocked by Google, for some searches this program claims the SERP result was #66, when I check the same search term with various tools it claims we are page 1 # 4.
