I have a Google news website and recently a couple stories get a ton of traffic from URL's structured like www-ig-opensocial.googleusercontent.com. The same article will get even more traffic with no referrer at all which I assume has something to do with the link above.
Not sure if this will be allowed but here is the exact URL as an example:
Does anyone know what this is? I'm trying to figure out the source of the traffic. It doesn't appear to come directly from Google News. I almost think it's a feed that syndicates content from Google news to other websites or some type of social media thing.
