Is anyone else out there having this problem? I'm not qualified to say exactly why there is no referral tag. If anyone has any ideas on what is happening please inform.
If I understand you correctly you are saying that the bulk of you visitors don't seem to be coming from anywhere - you have a bunch of log files that say 'no referrer'.
Basically you get a 'no referrer' when someone types your URL in directly, follows a link in an email or has bookmarked you site.
Is there a chance that you were listed in a newsletter or magazine article or something on the 5th?
It is very unlikely that people type music-3.com/bay9_index.html into a browser.
On the 4th of January we received 216 clicks(total 50 clients), 135 of which had referral tags.
On the 5th we received 492 clicks, 131 of which had referral tags.
On the 9th we received 1453 clicks, 287 of which had referral tags.
See a pattern?
Most of the increased traffic is from words like "shopping" and "gifts".
I'm wondering if an affiliate of Bay9 has written some sort of script to click on bay9 results in order to make themselves some cash.
