How Accurate is the Nation/Source Data from WordPress?

5 months ago | ScreamingCandle (Member)

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how accurate the stats are in wordpress? I've got a premium plan site at screamingcandle.com and I get what seems to me to be an inordinate amount of international traffic. I also seem to get referral traffic from some odd websites... and foxwebber, if anyone has heard of that.

This isn't a big thing, I'm just wondering why I'd get so many hits from Poland and why I'd get any at all from Nepal (by cultural convention) or any at all from the Isle of Mann (by the weight of numbers, though I would like to tip my hat to any Manx who really are reading).

So how about it? Anyone getting traffic from Pluto? Are these all just bots?

Stay Weird.

    It's not just you, I have some odd views from India, Finland and Qatar. My best guess is that there are english learners trawling the web for practice. Or perhaps someone's just looking for something to read during a trip away from home. I dunno.

    Foxwebber is a malicious browser extension, iirc...
