Random #7 - attack of the view bots

This blog seems to be under "attack" by bots or something. For the last month I'm getting ten times more daily views than the average was. It started on September 30th. Every few hours the statistics shows a spike of 30 new views, and every day the same thing. The views are coming from USA, operating system is Macintosh and the browser is Chrome, but it shows no referring site or anything to pinpoint the source. It has made the statistics data completely useless.

  1. Is it possible that there's a few people loaded tabs and keep closing/opening chrome which is loading the fresh page view each time? Heck I had this tab opened for last 2 weeks for the Abuse game that I was meaning to check out on your Github!

    Anyway hopefully there is a way you can ignore the outliers in your statistics. Maybe ignore anything without a refer site? Cheers!
