What is this?

I run a ppc site. A couple months back I started getting these hits that I know aren't really hits. I have a stats section in my admin panel. I made an account for myself and add money to it every so often. Every day I get the same hits (not all of them but just a selection, like 'gaming' for example) at least once a day. The first hit every day is gaming, the second hit is the same, third, fourth, etc. Occationally there is a difference. What is causing this? It cleans out my account constantly.

What you're seeing is traffic caused by robots. Email or stickymail me if you want more information about dealing with it... Cheaters visit forums too ;-)

> I run a ppc site.

Where do you get your traffic from? From your Post your source of traffic doesn't look very trustworthy.
