Um...a (technical) question

According to Blogger, as of sometime last month, my blog has been receiving over 1000 hits a day. This is up from, you know, 50-75 when I actually post something. (Note that, before Friday, I had last posted about 6 weeks ago.)

I can't imagine that this is accurate. Anyone have any insights into this? Or has Blogger's viewing counter gone haywire?

Could it be spam commenters hitting you hard but getting weeded out by Blogger's algorithm? That's what makes the most sense to me.

Hmm... I'd say spam is probably right. I just checked my hits, and I'm getting about 300 a day. On days I post, I usually get between 150-200 hits. On days I don't post, I usually get between 50-100 hits. Who knows? But apparently my Rome posts are getting a lot of hits. Maybe people who are googling Rome trips?

My recorded page views are a modest 75 or so when I post, typically, so yeah, it must be some weird spam deviation. It alarmed me a little at first, though!
