I noticed repeat visits to my site from various websites, all located in the Ukraine. I looked at the source of the pages and see no links to neither my domain nor IP.

I am wondering of the origin of this traffic. Hopefully there's no malicious intent. Is there a way to research it deeper?

  • May be some advertisements are leading users of those website to your website? – Shashank Kadne Apr 25 '12 at 3:11
  • I am not advertising anywhere. And why all from the same country? Most of the sites are in Russian... and totally unrelated. Mine is all in English and quite specialized. – santa Apr 25 '12 at 3:21
  • How trusted is your referrer data? Are you using analytics to track such data? SiteCatalyst/Google analytics? – Shashank Kadne Apr 25 '12 at 3:56
  • Yes, it is an analytics tool. But I don't just rely on it. Plugging IP usually resolves in a referrer from that country. – santa Apr 25 '12 at 16:52

It's just referrer spam.
