Strangeness in Stats (5 posts)

    Recently I have been seeing some strangeness in my stats. (I am using BAStats).
    Lately in the morning when I go to my site I go strait to wp-admin and login. I dont land on any page except for admin pages. And when I check the statsm there is always a recent hit on several monthly archives (eg. /2005/05/), and these hits are within the last ten min. and come from my ip. This started happening after I upgraded to the latest version of WP 2.1.2. Then throughout the day I notice that the same archives will rank up 20 - 30 hits throughout the day from my ip, I am not visiting any of them and I cannot figure out why it is happening.

    Any advice?

    What browser and browser version are you using? And addons or extentions? I'm wondering if maybe your browser is precaching...

    To see if your browser is prefetching:


    Google's FAQ on the subject and how to turn it off:


    I'm also wondering if maybe you have a virus though on there.

    I think that was the problem. My browser was prefetching. I used the directions in the Google FAQ and turned it off.

    I will keep an eye on it and see if it continues.
