I had a traffic spike on my site between 25th and 27th October 2021.
I received an email today from Google Search Console Team to confirm:
Here is how some of your top queries performed in the week of 25-Oct-2021 to 31-Oct-2021:
- Query: example.com username generator
- #1 query on your site
- 152,801 impressions
- 28.99% of total site impressions, more than the 0.27% it got in the previous weeks.
This is a screenshot showing the spike:
This is a view of Acquisition > All Traffic > Source/Medium for 21st Oct to 1st Nov, but it doesn't provide much info:
Maybe that's as much as I can find out - it's strange though - seems for a few days, peaking on 26th Oct, lots of people searched for example.com username generator but I can't see what would have triggered it - is there any way I can find out?
I did search on google for example.com username generator -example.com to find sites mentioning my site, but where the link isn't coming from my site, and it did return results, but I was not able to find anything relevant.
Any advice much appreciated.
