My site is getting viral traffic now but doesn't show where from?

14 replies
In Google analytics, I never seen this much traffic from all over the world. It is showing no data for the top referrals. Is there a way to figure out where it is coming from? It happened earlier today and still going strong.

      For some reason it shows some of the other referrals from reddit, stumble, etc. but its not coming from there. Says no data?

      I don´t think so... You usally do injection to access.
      Brute force takes to long.

      Maybe a DDos?

        Haha! You can brute force into wordpress if the password is a simple one in about 10-20 minutes.

        But yes, i think it could be DDos too.

        @OP - Your best bet is to ask your host to evaluate what's going on.

      I wonder why they would go to a blog post and not registration page then, you still think that could be it?

    Google never shows full reports, how could they not know where traffic is coming from.

    Google can not show data from some referrals especially when it's mobile traffic. Are they interacting on site? If not it could be a bot but if there is interaction most likely mobile/tablet.

    If you are using a cpanel hosting then Check AWstats from your account. I suspect It may be DDOS attack.

  • Certain referrers don't show up in Wordpress.

    Whenever I publish a blog post to the advertising copywriting group on LinkedIn, I get a big bump in traffic, but my Wordpress doesn't show the referrers as coming from LInkedIn
