What is up with All of these "Views"


                    just over the last half of this month... Number of Views has risen...
                This is all very confusing to us and so many Views from Russia as well...

This from a fan in upper Europe...                            
Thank you good viewers from our Crypt (in the States)....

  2. Over the last week or so I am getting hundreds of non-humans views from Russia

    I have learned : It doesn't affect your blog. They are not real visits, it is called referrer spam or it could be the Yandex crawler. Don't click on the links, that is the only reason it exists is to get you to click on the links. The Blogger stat system will eventually recognize it as spam and will remove the links and visits from your stats. Also, it doesn't affect your ranking

  4. Happening to me as well... Used to maybe 100-200 views per day, then all of a sudden there's over a thousand in one day. I HAVE clicked a Yandex link though, and nothing happened (at least nothing I'm aware of).
