I have a strange question : I have all of a sudden started getting hits to my site - much much more than normal today.

It's not even Noon yet,but ive already gotten 58 uniques today! I looked in "awstats" and "webalizer" and the referrer seems to be:

Looks similar to when someone clicks onto my site from a post on this forum it shows:

Is there any way to trace where exactly the link to my site is posted? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Are all of the hits coming from the same source?

Usually when you have an unexplained increase in unique hits it is a result of search bots spidering your site.

Figured it out. I was watching the "latest visitors" log in the web/ftp stats section of cpanel and I caught someone right when they got to the site and before they could click onto something else - so i found the topic id in the forum where it was coming from. apparently someone had posted a link to my site in a gaming community forum
