Visitor sees hidden pages: Could I have Bot visitors?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.sermiranda.com

Today I noted something rather strange.

Analytics told me I had 21 visits in a day, when I regularly have an average of 3/5 per day. So I went to check who could it be and I see that's a visitor from Canada.

I didn't find much info, whois search didnt return anything, and it's a "direct visitor". But when I check the pages he visited, I noticed that he/she/it visited pages that are hidden from navigation, pages I keep hidden and only send a link to them to some clients, or maybe not even, and keep them hidden until they are finished to show them.

Then I noticed that this single visitor visited each one of all my pages (starting by the visible ones, and then going to the hidden ones) but stayed for 1 to 3 seconds on average, although on a few of them spent 8 or 11 seconds. 

Makes me wonder if it could be an automated visitor (bot)?

How can this be possible (that someone has access to my hidden pages)?


Thanks for all everyone.
