Yeah, noticed it myself. When that happens it's the SymbOS site because of a rush of MSX users when something is announced. 

But this time it's been going on for too many days, and the stats are very bumpy - like, from 1300 visits to 630 to 1700. It doesn't make much sense and, to tell you the truth, a little googling reveals nothing in the MSX scene (but I could be totally wrong). So, it is strange indeed! - not that it matters much of course :)

Sounds reasonable, doesn't it? After all CPCwiki is not the no. 1 site for CPCs anymore.

...which would actually make it a better target for non-nerd, breeding specimens, but anyhow.

Seriously now, if google has a way of knowing the number of genuine accesses to a site, other sites may every once in a while even beat the wiki+forum.

Google doesn't have a way, of course.

Concerning our site, there's no way to know for certain all visits are relevant either. But I've blocked all major spam IP networks from China and elsewhere at server side, so they don't count in any analytics/stats tools. Best I can do to keep it as real as I can, we'll have to live with a degree of uncertainty outside that.

As far as movement goes, I think the differences are pretty big for a spammer to make a permanent change :)

Was wondering if they might have a Facebook or Twitter account and are just linking Images from their site to those other networking sites?

Awww that's great :)

Meanwhile something is really weird indeed with SymbOS. The month is not over and the site is already 6 times over its record (3000 vs 18000 visitors). It doesn't make any sense...
