    I looked at my awstats on a site i don't do anything with. Well apparently blackhatebootcamp.com has sent 500 visits to the site. I looked at the site and it's just a scam e-book site, but my sites link isn't on there anywhere.

    Anyone know what may cause this?

    PS. It doesn't show that in my google analytics account.
    PPS. I strongly disagree with any blackhat techniques.

    Tons of sites use awstats and some will have it in their sitemaps meaning it is effectively linkbacks. So, for example, if I have a link on my site to your site and someone clicks through your stats will show my url on your awstats with a linkback and if you have a sitemap then I get a free backlink. It also gets other webmasters curious about where their link is so it can get extra visitors just based on that. If he targeted to sites that have owners that may be interested in his ebook then it could make it easy to get some sales.

    There are easy ways to fake referrer so I could visit your site and make it look like I came from my site without actually having a link and such. Then it could be automated to make it look like tons of visits or hit tons of different sites.

    Or he could have just linked to you for a while for whatever reason then took the link down before you noticed lol
