But keep in mind that we are now 10 days away from xmas and traffic patterns shift wildly around this time, naturally.
We do not mind much about the fake downloads as we have flat rate bandwidth but I try to figure out what’s the purpose of all this downloads from same IP´sis someone hotlinking to your files? I get similar traffic from those trying to use our bandwidth thinking it's metered but we don't have anything downloadable.

Not to mention it sounds like we pretty much all can type in keywords for our niche and see blatant violations and/or complete opposites of the holy grail of website standards they have set forth.
I remember when I could search for something and could honestly say the results 'made sense' and now I cannot do that. It's just that more irritating when they push these rules out about how you should do this and that yet now top results are filled with content that completely goes against these rules.
