What is Fake Traffic anyways?

Fake traffic is simply a simulation, it is a black hat technique that allow you to generate traffic to your blog, but this traffic is not real! This means it is generating by a bot or a software, no humans are involved, thus no conversion. The reason is to game the statistics, and show that you are getting a lot of traffic.

How to check on whether I am subject to such attack?

Black hat tools used in such attacks usually use OLEs/OCX objects to enable certain functionality in their tools. In Windows that's Internet Explorer APIs. The API will make http requests look like as if they were coming from an IE browser. Therefore, if you experience a jump in your traffic, another simple way to check on whether you are subject to such attack is to see if IE hits are significantly higher than usual. Nevertheless, an experienced hacker would use more advanced techniques to disguise him/herself.

How this plugin works?

The plugin simply do a few checks and redirect any suspicious visits a way from your blog.
