I was checking my web traffic stats last night with StatCounter, and noticed some strange pageloads from various IP addresses in Beijing, China. These pageloads were not published by me, nor can I find them if I try to load them in a browser. Yet, they're being loaded by a bot.
The info button states: "Bot/Crawler -- This visit was generated by the activity of a web crawler on your site."
... and the specific websites, dating back to July 1st, are below. My account doesn't provide earlier records, but I do remember having seen Beijing visits for a very long time (maybe a year or more). It was only yesterday that I noticed the strange pageloads.
As I said, I can't load the pages myself, nor does my webpage come up when I search for the strange names (i.e., "cash-advance-wichita-kansas" + [any keywords from my site]). However, thousands of websites with the exact phrase do appear in the results without any of my site's keywords.
So, does this mean that my site has somehow been hacked? How is it possible to load pages that, theoretically, don't exist on my website? Could this explain why some of my emails get relegated to spam folders?
Thanks in advance!
