    Question Hundreds of Hits from Remote Places

    I'm working on this landscaping site in Knoxville, Tennessee. I was checking the site statistics and found that most of the hits are coming from outside Tennessee. Since landscaping is localized in nature, I can't figure out why so many hits would come from so far away.

    Most hits to the site last less than 30 seconds. The statistics I'm using exclude the major robots.

    Arizona: over 300 hits
    New York: about 200 hits
    Atlanta: 200 hits

    Does anybody have any ideas as to why I'm receiving so many hits from these remote locations? Thanks guys.

    Sometimes it's based upon the location of the search engine being used.

    For example, we're a Kentucky-based government entity, but we constantly got lots of hits from Virginia; come to find out that an AOL server was located there; so anyone in Kentucky using the AOL search was being recorded as a "Virginia" visitor.
    FYI

    hmm Ok that makes sense. That's really interesting. Thanks for the tip. I'm going to skip marking this "resolved", though, in case anyone has any other ideas.

    Thanks again
