My site takes online inquiries and the conversion code is on the custom generated "thankyou" page once the form has been filled in. You can't get to the thankyou page unless you've just filled in the form.

I've had 3 conversions today! But no-one has submitted any forms. They can't, the form itself is currently off for rescripting and has been for 3 days. (I forgot to pause the campaign till just now)

Any ideas how I could be "converting"?

It sounds like something must be pinging that page. I wonder if a spider crawled to that thank you page earlier and now it keeps going back to it. Can you do a user agent lookup on that page? If you have the raw logs of your server you can do a "find" for that page name in the logs. Then you'll see on that line of data who the user agent that hit that page was. Like I said, my guess is it's a spider.

Page is dynamically generated when the form is submitted. It doesn't really exist, it is the same page as the form only when submitted the conversion code is entered. No submission page, no thankyou page.

Do you have access to your server logs?
