My average stats look like this.
AVG visit per day before 21st Feb 8000-9000
Visits peeked at 27,000 on the 22nd Feb
These figures then gradually droped until they reached their new average of 13,000 to 14,000 visit per day from the 1st March onwards.
This means that I am experiencing an average of 5000 to 6000 zombie visits per day ever since.
I have now got my server providers involved and asked that they live monitor and investigate the matter as noone else seems to have an answer.
