If I look to my website statistics, I see that there are lots of referrers from sites that I don't know. Most of them are weird Russian sites. These sites haven't put any link to my website, strange how they get to my site.
So I wonder how they get to my site, and why they're counted as a referrer.
Probably they have some sort of script somewhere on their website, that redirects constantly to other sites, so the other sites see them as referrers?
My question: which statement is (in)correct, or are they all (in)correct:
- if you click on a link on a website X, it is counted as a referrer from site X ?
- if a site opens in an iframe on a website X, is it countedd as a referrer from site X ?
Anyone can help me with this strange question?
