Huge Traffic Spike In One Day?
I just visited my Google Analytics page to see how many site visitors I received yesterday.
Much to my surprise it showed a huge traffic spike.
Normally I have very few visitors to my site, so to me even just a little incremental increase is a positive thing.
At first I was a little excited, as I thought okay maybe this stuff is starting to work.
After drilling down in the analytics a bit closer, most of the traffic came from one place.
As you can see from the overview above 67.65% came from Kharkiv in the Ukraine.
Given the location, could this be a site scraping bot that hit my site? Session duration was 0:00 and the bounce rate 100%.
Or no need to worry, business as usual.
Are there any experts out there that may have some insights into this?
Comments and speculation would also be welcome.
