Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The situation:
My site had no organic traffic from Google. It has some referral traffic.
After I have launched adwords, my "organic" traffic increased, but not "paid" and no money has been spent in adwords. AdWords and Google Analytics accounts are connected.

The issue:
What is the reason of sudden "organic" traffic growing? Is it due to AdWords launching?

UPDATE:
Users visit my site by ordinary keywords and not by the site domain name. And they are all new visitiors.

UPDATE 2:
Site URL is www.sitefeedbacks.com
The site is not bound to any event. Its just day-to-day basis site similar to forum.

UPDATE 3:
I have used Adwords in the past for this site on another AdWords account.

UPDATE 4:
I have just found an issue. It was another Google Adwords campaign on another account.
My stupid mistake.

Only one question has no answer: Why did Google Analytics attribute that traffic to "organic", but not to "paid"?

Is your Adwords link going to sitefeedbacks.com rather than www.sitefeedbacks.com? A 301 redirect here would lose the tracking parameter. –  Brendon Jul 9 '13 at 23:28
    
My Adwords link going directly to www.sitefeedbacks.com –  Marian Jul 10 '13 at 5:59

Maybe your site was not indexed by Google, and the AdWords campaign led the site to be indexed. Now, a search on Google will find you, where you wouldn't show before?

Or it could be return visitors. They click on your adwords ad, visit site and want to go back. But they cant remember the direct link so they search for your name on google and find you that way.

There really is not enough info given to answer the question. If you sell wimbledon final memorabilia maybe people only look for this and find your site after the final, so there is a spike in taffic only at a certain date. Who, what, why where, when? Do you want to give more info?

For the first time my site has been indexed at the beginning of March. –  Marian Jul 9 '13 at 12:15
    
Jon, I've updated my question. I gave my site's URL and short description. –  Marian Jul 9 '13 at 17:56
    
yeah I saw the updates. I ran out of sane ideas. There are so many inputs into why you got traffic last week. It reminds me of a joke - A- I went to a maths class and I found out there is a difference between causation and correlation. B- Sounds like it was a good class. A - Dont know –  Jon Jul 9 '13 at 18:07
    
"There are so many inputs into why you got traffic last week." That is the reason I have asked this question. It is not standard situation. –  Marian Jul 10 '13 at 5:56

google has customer service. you can ask them. They will tell you. Use the adwords account that was clicked on and say that the clicks come up as organic in analytics. There are too many variables I dont have –  Jon Jul 22 '13 at 12:13

AdWords can't influence the organic search performance of your site. Organic search and AdWords are not related.
