I have two sites about tablet pc.
In "Real-Time" option in Google analytics, both sites at any movement of time shows active visitors from Putney which is located in UK. One the site is

What I found odd is that both the sites is meant for the Indian audience as both have details about the tablet that are available in India.

Is this normal?

On my site, I also get continuous visitors from Putney. Main target for my website is majorly India. Why Putney people much interested in Indian sites :) – Deependra Solanky Apr 27 '13 at 12:01

Indian immigrants are all over the world, so I don't find it weird to have people visiting your website from random countries ;)

Besides that - it might be perfectly correct. Imagine a scenario where someone just has this website opened in a tab (along with few dozens of other sites) and simply forgot about it while working on some other stuff.

That's how I work quite often - right now my Firefox got ~30 tabs opened, I use roughly 10 of them, some of tabs I have got running weren't closed since 2 days or more, because I plan to get back to them, but don't have time for it now. So all of the owners for sites I got running see exactly what you do: That someone from one location visits a website constantly with almost no activity. Now, due to the setting on a browser it might be possible that each tab is tracked as separate visitor, but... all of them are from one location.

I know it's rather a cruel way of twisting the GA results ;) but that's just how some people work :)
