Huge Influx of "Unique Visitors"

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.toastoklahoma.com/

Hey there, my site shows a MASSIVE influx of "unique visitors" on Monday, but it doesn't make any sense to me. I attached screen grabs of the analytic data -- does anyone know why this would happen? It seems like some sort of spammy thing, but I still can't understand why?

Some highlights from the attached:

  1. 202 unique visitors, 198 of which hit at 8 PM. We typically get between 1 and 5 unique visitors a day.
  2. Visitors are pretty evenly split between three browsers -- Firefox, Edge, and Chrome.
  3. 194 visitors are from Canada. I don't know any reason we would have a spike there.
  4. 199 visits with a direct traffic source.
  5. Popular content is also pretty spread out across the site. 

Anyone know what's up?

I've been getting the same for just over a year now. Every few months, and always from Canada! I've never even been there!

Beauharnois, Montreal, and Dollard-des-Ormeaux. Very strange indeed.

Someone also tried to log into my email the night before so I’m kinda freaked out.

It wouldn't hurt to change your passwords for email and your site.

I prefer dice phrase passwords. See The Diceware Passphrase Home Page.
